Had a lovely single room for one night. Great shower, comfy bed, quiet location in historic part of Norwich, very close to cathedral. Easy 10 min walk from train station and also similar easy walk to theatre, which was reason for my stay. Fabulous cooked breakfast in the morning!

Clean, warm, excellent location. Good breakfast. The elderly gentleman you meet in the breakfast room does not seem to understand the virtue of being courteous to your guests. "I don't know where she is, do I?" One of his courteous responses. Reminded me of Eliza Doolittle.

We spent a pleasant night at Number 17 as a family of four. The family room was very spacious with a separate mezzanine bedroom for the kids. The bathroom was large and well equipped. Would definitely visit again, perhaps in summer so we could make use of the pretty garden. Breakfast was very good too.

We booked a couple of nights here to catch up with old friends and had no idea what to expect. We were greeted by Jim who showed us to a lovely suite with tea and coffee making facilities, microwave and fridge plus masses of storage space. The bathroom had a large shower cubicle and huge bath. It was freezing cold...

Very central location which means noise late into the night. Room 2 is very small but not really an issue. General finish especially in the en-suite was very poor (e.g: shower bracket & toilet roll holder both loose, sealant apparently applied by a toddler....). Breakfast good ( bacon great, sausages not so). Decent value, parking included but slightly disappointing overall.

No 17 Colegate, is a lovely little guesthouse/B+B. Situated right at the edge of the old Lanes area, cathedral, 53 churches and the the more modern part of Norwich.Really friendly reception when we arrived, comfortable bedroom, and a really nice breakfast.Thoroughly recommend staying here .

This B & B is situated in a great location. Within walking distance of the city, but still quiet and relaxing. We were in a family room which was very spacious with a cosy seating area. The bathroom standard was more towards hotel standard than what you'd expect to find in a B & B. Everything was spotlessly clean. The...

As a discerning solo traveller, I was looking for a good place to base myself for yesterday's works do. I had originally planned to base myself somewhere near the bus station, but when a certain chain of hotels, they shall remain nameless were asking an exorbitant amount of money for 1 room, breakfast and WiFi I thought my search was...
