“SHORT BUT PLEASANT STAY”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We only stayed in The Old Rectory for one night but from arriving to leaving all the staff were very pleasant and efficient. When I booked online I had a small query which was answered within minutes with a phone call from Becky. We were in Room 7 which was very clean and tidy with a lovely comfy bed plus tea & coffee and bathroom toiletries. The breakfast was so good - freshly cooked and served with a smile. Nothing seemed too much trouble in this hotel. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 7 was very nice and right at the end of a corridor

This very well-appointed hotel is set in peaceful surroundings, yet close to Norwich's city centre. It served as an excellent base for us to tour north Norfolk. The service that we at had at this hotel was superb in every way!

Five adults and three children stayed Saturday night to celebrate a birthday. The rooms were clean and pleasantly furnished in a modern wing and the three children were accommodated in a reasonably large room with three single beds which adjoined a double. There is a small lounge area and a very nice restaurant in a large round conservatory which served a fixed price menu (discounted for residents) and an a la carte choice which was enjoyed. The breakfast was good with vegetarian choices and the service was cheerful and efficient. Unusually, the milk served in the lounge with afternoon tea and even the milk in the rooms was full fat so if you like semi-skimmed you had better ask. The hotel appears to specialise in weddings (not the night we were there) so it might be worth checking when booking if you want quiet. All in all very pleasant , reasonable prices and close to Wroxham.

We stayed at the Old Rectory for a short break and the overall experience was very positive. The rooms are clean and of a reasonable size. The only negative was the bathroom, where the bath could have done with handles to make getting out easier, as it was quite slippery, although we later found a bathmat in the wardrobe.
Breakfast was good, with cereals and juices available self service, with fruits and full English also available. We also ate in the hotel restaurant on two occasions and the quality of the food was good and excellent value.
In the summer months there is a swimming pool available!
The hotel provides a good base to explore the Norfolk Broads and the coast and Norwich is a short drive away, although I would recommend using the park and ride, which is only a ten minute drive from the hotel and easier than trying to park in the middle of Norwich.
I am sure we will stay at the Old Rectory, next time we are in the area.

We stayed one Saturday night as we were at a wedding in the area. The rooms were very modern and the bed extremely comfortable with a nice view over the garden. There was also plenty of parking which is always a plus point. We really had no opportunity to look around the hotel at the other facilities as we got back late from the wedding and left soon after breakfast the following morning. Breakfast was good with the usual cereal, toast and fried breakfast although the cooked breakfast was not as hot as I would have liked. Overall, a very good choice for an overnight stay with our only criticism being when we arrived and when we left there was no-one on reception, and we had to ring the bell a couple of times before someone appeared to help us.

We have just stayed at the Old Rectory with our art groups. We stayed from the 2nd to the 6th Sept and then again from the 9th to 13th Sept. We have nothing to fault. The staff were fantantic, very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel is a family affair, and is lovely. The food plentiful and excellent, compliments to the chef. Breakfast a good choice of cereals, fruit cocktails, full english. The rooms were very clean, well decorated, beds comfortable. Brilliant. The garden is very well maintained, with a heated swimming pool for guests to use. So all in all its credit due to Ian and his family and excellent staff that makes this a wonderful place to stay. As organisers, we want everything to bit right for our guests, and nobody was disappointed. We are now in the planning to come back next year, that says its all.

Room Tip: All very good

Some artist friends and I stayed at this super hotel and it was hard to find fault!! The staff were very obliging and polite, the rooms were spacious, well decorated and clean and the meals were superb with excellnt service. We had one day where we "lazed/painted" in the beautiful garen and took advantage of the sunshine, it was heavenly. It's well situated for many atractions. I do hope that we will be able to stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the garden/pool were brighter than the road side ones. Some rooms have bath only...
