“Best B&B I have ever stayed at”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

Stayed 2 nights at this lovely Edwardian house. Mine host (ex RAF like myself) was very attentative, and even sourced my preferred margarine brand to spread on my toast. Breakfast, full English in my case, was plentiful and excellent.
Our room was spacious, clean, tidy, warm, tastefully decorated, and had all the amenities you would expect from a guest house of this calibre.
Location was good, close to the river with a selection of pubs/restaurants to choose from, and with easy access to the city centre.
If you are looking for accommodation in Norwich I would thoroughly Recommend Hill House. We will certainly be back.

We stayed for one night while having a short break in Norwich. All the reviews on here are to be believed, it is truly a lovely place to stay. Warm, clean and comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for our host and the breakfast was delicious! We will definitely go back. So much nicer than a soulless chain hotel.

We stayed here a couple of months ago now for a wedding at the Oaklands. We thought the service was excellent as the chap who welcomed us was friendly and offered to get our bags from the car. The building and grounds really are quite lovely, and surprisingly quiet, despite being near a main road. The photos on the website don't do this place much justice and they make it look a bit dated, but in person the rooms and buildings are quite vibrant with a very fresh feel to them. We booked a double room, but got one with an extra single in, which felt massive and airy with the high ceilings. There was a tv and dvd player in our room and some dvds outside should you find yourself requiring one. My only gripe was the towels were black, and despite probably looking more stylish than white ones, I just think white ones radiate a better feel of cleanliness. The rooms all had little figurines on the doors instead of numbers, which gave them individuality.

For 55 quid, we really were quite impressed as the breakfast, which was included, was one of the best I've ever had, beating quite a few larger 4* hotels I've stayed in.

Quiet but in easy reach of supermarkets , pubs etc., My host was ex-RAF like me and we shared experiences. Breakfast was " all you can eat " and reasonable.
This time I had the self-contained annexe all to myself for two days while I attended an event in Norwich and the next day , Norwich Golf Day at a large stately home / golf course. If all these reviews are posted in chronological order , readers will form a " picture " of the places I stayed at on tour . All of these were quiet , reasonable and run in a quiet efficient way that ensured return visits.

Room Tip: ask for the annexe

We were very taken with beautiful Hill House and the charming owners. We were visiting friends nearby, and were so pleased to have found such a gem of a place, so tranquil yet so convenient for the city too. We had a lovely double room overlooking the front, very comfortable bed, tea, coffee and chocolate facilities provided, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfast each morning was cooked to perfection. Great value for money and somewhere we would definitely recommend, and hope to return to.

Hill House is nicely located a 5 minute easy drive away from Norwich in a quiet location. We had a family room and it was beautifully decorated, lovely and spacious, very New England style, tasteful and comfortable. A nice spacious bathroom too, a good shower and a really nice breakfast so great value and great accommodation, would definitely stay here again and look forward to seeing some of the other rooms. Very impressed :)
