The hospitality here was outstanding, and our room was very well appointed, large and comfortable. There is also a parlor with a fireplace downstairs that can be used anytime for reading, relaxing, or having a pre-dinner drink brought to you. Chris' welcome was enthusiastic and on our last day he was nice enough to make us an extra-early breakfast since...

My wife and I have just spent three glorious nights at piece of English history. The Old Rectory dates back to the early 1700,s but nothing about it suffers from age. The owner, Chris, and his staff are truly helpful and it is obvious that they enjoy the company of the residents. We intended to have an evening meal on...

We stayed at the Old Rectory for 4 nights and really enjoyed the hospitality. The owners and their staff were very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. The hotel is a characterful Georgian building. we particularly enjoyed sitting by the wood fire in the sitting room after our meals. The food, both breakfast and dinner, is of a high...

I live in the area and have never stayed at the Old Rectory although my friends who I booked to stay loved it. We mainly use for special occasions when we eat locally. The atmosphere is just right if you a person who hates Muzak, chromium plate and noise. The owner has run some of the top family Hotels so...

Found the Old Rectory online and booked two nights away for 3 couples.. It is always a risk when booking for others but it need not have been a worry.

Chose the Old Rectory from Trip Advisor and was not dissapointed. Although classed as a B&B it functions as a hotel. We stayed 4 nights and had a wonderfull meal every evening. Rooms are large, well equipped and well serviced. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners Chris & Sally.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Rectory, Norwich's only AA 4* Gold 'Restaurant with Rooms' is a beautiful Georgian House, with adjoining Victorian Coach House, standing in an acre of mature secluded gardens on the eastern fringes of Norwich, overlooking the Yare valley and Thorpe Marshes nature reserve . We offer warm hospitality and friendly service in a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Every morning, you can enjoy a delicious breakfast, cooked to order and served to your table. Our menu features local sausages, bacon, ham and eggs, Chef's own toasted muesli, thick yoghurt with home-made fruit compote, and thick cut toast. Our Dining Room is open Tuesday to Saturday evenings (closed Sunday / Monday), with a daily changing 2 AA Rosette menu featuring freshly prepared, locally sourced, seasonal produce. The elegant intimate, Georgian panelled room has just six tables so be sure to book dinner in advance as we regret we cannot guarantee availability of a table, nor a particular time, where dinner reservations have not been made prior to arrival. The Old Rectory is 2 miles from Norwich railway station (services to London, Cambridge, the Norfolk Coast and intermediate stations) and the city centre with its Norman Castle and Cathedral, medieval churches, excellent shopping facilities and open air market. Norwich International Airport (flights to Manchester, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and international flights via the KLM hub at Amsterdam Schipol) is 5 miles. The Norfolk Broads National Park and the sandy beaches of the east coast are a short drive, and many historic houses, nature reserves, gardens etc are within easy reach. ... more   less
