“Top Notch Guest House ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013 via mobile

Really nice place and very friendly owners and staff. Great location for Norwich city centre and plenty of places to get food nearby. The room was fantastic and the whole place has a modern and well kept feel. Unfortunately we had to leave before breakfast (which starts at 7:30) but we were able to still have cereal and toast. This will be my first choice if I'm working in Norwich again.

We stayed at Wensum to visit our daughter at UAE. It is just five minutes away from the university in the car. The room was a little compact, but fresh decor, comfortable bed, good shower, quiet,, and generous tea and coffee facility. There is plenty of space in the car park. Would recommend to anyone visiting Norwich.

I have little experience of guest houses but our trip had 3 adults wanting to stay in the same room, this guest house offers 3 beds in a family room which was ideal for us, the accommodation was clean and comfortable, we were given a key so you can come and go as suits. Bathroom functional if not a bit basic but not an issue. Free parking and a 15min easy walk into norwich centre. Breakfast freshly cooked and nice size portion. I imagine this is a very high standard for guest houses.

Room Tip: Room 9 has two proper singles and a double. No bath if you have young children who don't like sh...

Had one night here, room comfortable if a little small but as there was only me it didnt matter. small bathroom but functional. Overall a good place to stay. Would stay there again. Short walk to nearest cash point (Tesco express), a few takeaways in the area but the crowning jewel (in my opinion) was the fat cat public house down the next side street. Fantastic range of beers and ciders. A real ale paradise! I can see why its so busy even on a Thursday night. Ask the staff for directions etc for places to eat and drink. Lovely breakfast in the morning, perfect for soaking up the beer!

I,m very picky and normally manage to find fault with something but I,ve racked my brains and can,t find anything to complain about!! Stayed with 6 friends, middle aged ladies all, and no problems with cleanliness, breakfast really good, individually freshly cooked, no greasiness. Breakfast served by the man of the house who happily moved chairs around so we could all sit at one table. Highly recommended. Diana

Booked in advance and emailed them to clarify bus route as couldn't find the buses quoted on their website in the route planner. They didn't reply and ended up at 10pm wandering round norwich trying to find a non existent bus service.
Room was ok but bath had slope directly above it which meant the only way to take a shower was by crouching in the bath plus got burnt several times as water goes from hot to cold to hot quite erratically. Breakfast was average and the guy running it seems more bothered about returning to his room to watch tv than being around for his customers.

This was our second stay at the Wensum guest house, we stayed for 3 nights. Our room was very clean, comfortable bed , good shower,and a great breakfast each day. Nick and his staff were really helpful and polite. Plenty of parking space. Next time we go back to Norwich we will contact the Wensum first.
