It's a snazzy B&B, no bar, no restaurant, no problem for us. The room was thoughtfully and tastefully appointed, the breakfast well cooked and filling with real, orange juice, the bed was comfy, and everything you are likely to want in this beautiful mediaeval city is no more than 15 minutes’ walk away. A great place to stay, with charming...

We stayed in the St Giles Suite, on arrival we had a slice of delicious homemade cake and chilled champagne awaiting us. The suite was stunning with some lovely touches and close attention to detail. My husband took full advantage and relaxed in the lovely slipper bath using the luxurious toiletries provided. 38 St Giles is situated in Norwich city...

Lovely to to have a coffee machine in the room, and it was delightful to come back to a delicious slice of homemade cake each evening. All of the staff are so friendly and considerate. The...

We stayed over on 13/11/16 to 14/11/16. The entrance was very secretive but to me this added to the appeal and its hidden charm. The room was beautiful and we received cake upon arrival and indulged in a nice hot coffee whilst taking the surroundings in. We then went for a little walk round the city and when we got...

Extremely fortunate that I stumbled across this inner city B&B. A last minute booking which turned out to be an excellent choice. The greeting we received was very warm and welcoming from Holly and she was extremely helpful. The property has an immaculate decor and there are well chosen and positioned antiques and paintings. My wife and I were extremely...

There are those that use TripAdvisor as some kind of surrogate counselor, typing splenetic comments about staff and providing photographs as evidence of how they have been traumatized by a lack of coat hangers. There is very little one can do about these people. We should, perhaps, be mindful of the fact that many of them have food stains on...

In The Kinks song Shangri-La they sang 'You're in your place and you know where you are' They didn't quite mean it in this way but 38 St Giles Boutique Bed & Breakfast is the place I want to stay when I'm in Norwich again overnight. Lovely welcome, lovely room, lovely breakfast.

We were given a warm welcome, with a pot of tea and fantastic home made brownies. Holly was friendly and warm, and made sure we had everything we needed. She cooked us the best breakfasts we've ever had in any hotel or B&B, we chose different things each morning and the food was faultless. Her colleagues were also lovely, we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
38 St Giles is a grand house with a long and interesting history. It was built in 1700 for the Gurney family and became home to the former Lord Mayor of Norwich. Its neatly tucked-away entrance just off St Giles Street creates an intimacy and privacy that is unrivalled. We are the most centrally located boutique accommodation in Norwich, a stone's throw from the largest outdoor covered marketplace in the UK and adjacent to 'the lanes' - one of the oldest parts of this fine city and an area of national repute boasting well over 200 independent retailers of fashion, food and just about anything else that you might wish to buy. Inside the main entrance we have a grand staircase from which most of the bedrooms are accessed. From our wonderful double rooms to our two large suites you will be surrounded in comfort and a sense of history. We have chosen an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary pieces of furniture & artefacts, sumptuous throws, cushions and rugs. Our bathrooms feature oversized walk-in showers and rain shower heads, several rooms also have baths. White, fluffy towels and a range of quality toiletries help ensure that your morning ablutions are a positive experience! In selecting our bedding we have chosen simply embroidered 400 thread count white Egyptian cotton (not easy to iron but wonderful next to the skin) with goose down and feather pillows and duvets. Homemade cakes are served on arrival with a choice of teas or our specially blended and locally roasted coffee. We bake our own bread, make our own preserves and source all of our ingredients from the best local suppliers. No corners are cut in attempting to provide you with a relaxing, comfortable and memorable stay. We are happy to cater for small wedding parties, birthdays, anniversaries and other group bookings. We can even create a special meal with fine wines and champagne on arrival for that extra special treat. ... more   less
