“Lovely location - excellent staff”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

A true bargain! Paid £35.00 for double room for one night. Great location, spottless room. But what set it apart was the fantastic staff ! So helpful and friendly. Have family near by so will use this hotel again and recommend it to others. Could not fault it.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking garden and river

We stayed for bank holiday weekend in room 7. It overlooked the road and I was a bit worried about the noise, but it was fine. The room had a small double bed (definitely not Kingsize!) with flat screen tv and a fan because the room was quite warm. There was a kettle with big mugs and tea/coffee/biscuits. The bathroom had a nice shower. The hotel had obviously read the reports on trip advisor because we had a glade air freshener in the room which worked because we were over the kitchens. We could hear them moving furniture late at night and early in the morning. The car park at the side of the hotel was never full so we were able to get parked ok. At 6pm on a Friday evening the hotel restaurant was packed and the queue for the carvery too long for our liking so we decided to go for a walk. Left out of the hotel is a really nice Chinese restaurant called Canton. Right out of the hotel are some nice pubs too. It was a long way to Norwich. But the hotel is perfect for touring the Broads, it was half hour to Great Yarmouth, half hour to Cromer, 20 mins to Wroxham. No where is too far away. Breakfast was cereals/toast/fruit juice/yogs tea & coffee, perfect for us. For the price we paid over bank holiday weekend it was an absolute bargain. We had a lovely time and would stay again. Rooms 6, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16 and 18 face front and rooms 4, 8, 10, 11, 15, 17 and 19 face the river (I think). Rooms 17 and 19 looked quite large from the map on the back of the door (fire escape route).

Room Tip: Ask for river view

We wanted to shop In Norwich which is a good thirty or so minute walk.The entrance to the pub is filthy.The carpets are really worn,curtains falling down and fingerprints on everything.I didnt expect anything too special as we only paid £60.We have stayed with the Travel lodge for a similar price and they are clean and tidy.The staff are lovely and helpful and trying their best.The pub and accomodation need serious money spending !!
The breakfast was cheap and okay.

Reviewed 30 January 2010

stayed for 4 nights, in the largest room which was adequately furnished with 2 large windows overlooking the river and gardens, lovely and warm, bed comfy only problem was the cupboard that housed the hot water boiler was just outside our room, and when it was getting near to boiling it made a terrible racket, but the very friendly management were very apologetic and offered to change our room, we declined as we were going home next day, we paid just under £120 for the 4 nights, if we had paid full price i would have been unhappy. The carvery which is £3.59 Monday to Saturday is wonderful value and was really well presented, real roast potatoes, we would definately recommend eating there. Wish it had been closer to town, although buses are regular. We have stayed at several innkeepers lodges and have found them all clean, warm and friendly with decent pubs on site, would certainly stay again.

Arriving at the Townhouse 2 miles outside Norwich at mid-Friday afternoon we found the car park in front of the hotel packed, but soon found space at the side once someone had moved and revealed the entrance. The reason for the crowd - all day carvery for £3.50 Monday to Saturday.

The hotel itself is a series of very old buildings joined together and with a conservatory on the back overlooking a charming garden leading down to the river. You can eat in the garden too.

We were quickly checked in and my wife's case was carried to the room. The bedroom itself was fairly plain but adequately furnished and overlooking the river. The bathroom was really squeezed into the tiniest space possible with basin, shower and toilet. There are plenty of towels and you can have more on request. Although there is only liquid soap, the hotel offers any toiletries, toothbrush, comb etc gratis on request - so you could turn up in just the clothes you stand in.

There is the usual tea and coffee makings with biscuits all of which can be replenished on request.

The double bed was quite comfortable and there were individual reading lights and bedside shelves.

Oddly - the phone could only be used for outside call using a card - no provision for room to room or wake-up calls. The TV (with some Sky channels) was supposed to provide an alarm, but ours was not a model that could do this.

In case of warm nights there is a fan provided. However, if you are at the back keep the window open for fresh air you may have to put up with people having a good time on the terrace below. The road at the front seems very quiet at night, but beware of the time the commute starts in the morning.

Continental Breakfast is taken in part of the carvery and includes cereal, fruit, jiuce, Croissants, bread (with toasters) cheese, conserves and spreads with self serve tea and coffee. No cooked meats as we usually see on the continent. My wife was provideds with proper full cream milk on request.

WE paid just over £117 for 2 nights, but could have had Sunday night free as well if we could have stayed.

They have done well to provide reasonably comfortable accomodation in a period buiding and we will stay again nest time we visit Norwich.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Whether you're planning to explore historic Norwich or soak up the scenery of the Norfolk Broads, you'd be hard pushed to find a hotel as perfectly placed as this. Nestled in a lovely spot on the banks of the River Yare, opposite Whittingham Country Park, the lodge houses 14 warm and welcoming rooms as well as a Crown Carvery. So you can enjoy the tranquility of the area with your choice of roast, freshly steamed vegetables, roast potatoes and Yorkshire puds. Norwich has some of the best medieval architecture in Britain with a Norman moat and Bailey Castle and a fine cathedral dating back to 1096. It's also home to the Norfolk Broads, the largest protected wetlands in the country. They're a mecca for sailors, motor-boaters, canoeists and fishing enthusiasts - although walkers, bird watchers and cyclists will find plenty to do without having to get wet. Norwich Aviation Museum is just up the road, too. ... more   less
