I found the old rectory at random after a booking.com search. There was a bit of a cock up with the booking so I called the hotel who were fine and confirmed the booking was safe.

This is not a high end hotel nor does it claim to be one. We found our rooms to be well furnished, spotless with fresh, crisp linen. Fortunately...

A lovely small hotel handy for Norwich and The Broads. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was a delight with fresh fruit locally sourced produce and a huge selection of jams and marmalade. Highly recommended.

I stayed here on Saturday night with my boyfriend as a birthday surprise for him. The hotel is a little gem! The staff bent over backwards to make us welcome and couldn't do enough to help. The room was beautiful, the lounge area is very cosy and breakfast was scrumptious and plentiful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and...

Small hotel with parking. Our room was in a separate block. Large double bed with crisp sheets. No road noise was heard. Room was very dark with window facing to the rear of the property. Breakfast was comprehensive with cooked breakfast to order.
