The Elms became my second home in 2016 - from May to September. I Phil and Dot really are wonderful hosts, making this B&B's one of the best I have stayed at. The rooms are beautiful and pristine. The full English breakfast is outstanding and sets you up for the rest of the day. Phil and Dot are incredibly friendly...

I travel a lot for work and am well used to staying in chain hotels, where what you see is what you get. Their growth has been based on consistency, wherever you go the experience will be the same. What a joy then to have an experience with a difference, so much so that, cliched though it may sound, it...

The room was confortable and clean. The owners Phil and Dorothy were very friendly and made you feel most welcome, no matter what time of day or night. A big "thank you" to Phil for staying up and Dorothy who cooked the most amazing breakfast. A most enjoyable stay!

Definite one to keep up the sleeve. Great B&B, good value. Friendly meet and greet. Nice room with ensuite and all you would expect to find in a small hotel. Cooked breakfast looked great from what I saw but alas I was about to head off on a long cycle ride so restricted myself to cereal and toast (with homemade...

Had a great night at The Elms. We had a warm welcome on arrival and were shown to a lovely room with en suite shower and WC. We only had long enough to drop off our bags as we were going to St George's Whisky Distillery. Phil, the proprietor very kindly dropped us off there which saved us ordering a...

Stayed at the Elms again for a couple of days in September 2015. Great welcome as always, comfortable beds and super breakfast. Ideal for visit to Lotus and to the whisky distillery. Short walk to the village facilities, two nice pubs and a chinese restaurant.

We were racing at Snetterton and managed to get a room at The Elms. With it only being 3 miles from the circuit we were there in no time and had a warm welcome from our hosts and tea and cakes. The room had two good sized single beds and a shower, toilet wash room which were all very clean...

We had a warm welcome with friendly hosts, not too little, not too much. Great breakfast and friendly cows in the field next door. I've often meant to write reviews on places, but this one is the first I've actually done. I would go back tomorrow if I could!

I stayed at The Elms for a couple of nights in Aug 2015 and found it a very clean and comfortable place to stay. The hosts are very friendly, breakfast tasty and plentiful and nothing seems too much trouble. East Harling is a friendly little village too where people know each other and have the time to talk - mention...

Very friendly warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere.
