“Don't change a thing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

I have stayed at the Elms on my annual visit to Snetterton for 4 years now & nothing has changed.....BRILLIANT.. Dot & Phil have got it " JUST RIGHT " ! ...
Just the right balance .... friendly .... relaxed ....
comfortable ... homely....own keys !!
Early breakfasts not a problem ... bring back a "take away" from one of the local eateries....
Easy to find...Lovely quiet village with early opening/late closing convenient store...Good local pubs that do food at reasonable prices !... Snetterton only 3 miles away ... See you next year..

Room Tip: The rooms that I have stayed in over the last 4 years have been all been Excellent

Dot and Phil provide a warm welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. I have stayed in all the rooms at vairous times over the past few months, all are clean, comfortable with all mod cons.
The breakfast is amazing including the freshly laid eggs!
The place is in a lovely rural location, but easy to find. Easy access to Norwich.

Lovely rooms, very clean and well presented. Phil and Dot are so nice and make you feel very welcome, tea and home made cake on arrival. Great breakfast. This was my second stay as the first was so good. The standard is just as high two years on. Definitely recommend, you won't be disappointed

We stayed at The Elms as it was near Snetterton circuit, and we were really glad we picked this B & B. We had a warm welcome ( cup of tea and biscuits) and Phil was extremely helpful when it came to parking our kit car trailer. Our room was lovely,clean and tastefully decorated. The shower had a good flow (We've had ones that barely trickled!!) in the en suite and was well supplied with bath towels and toiletries. Dot didn't bat an eyelid when we said we wanted breakfast at 6.45 and there was a large amount of breakfast on offer. We would definately like to visit again. A lovely couple, recommend them highly.

Brilliant value, spotlessly clean, truly excellent hosts, and an outstanding full English breakfast! I definitely hope to stay with Dot and Phil if my travels ever take me to East Harling again.

We have stayed here twice during 2012 as we race nearby at Snetterton. We have stayed in the Double and also the twin, On both occassions, the rooms were immaculately clean, the owners are friendly and helpful without being in your face. They make you a coffee and home made cake on arrival. Both rooms are comfortable and have everything you need. Plenty of towels, piping hot water. Both rooms are on suite and the bathrooms are slightly small but more than adequate and squeaky clean without a sign of dust anywhere. The breakfast is lovely, with a selection of cereal and yoghurt, and an excellent cooked breakfast. They also provide a fridge to use, and you can bring back evening meals and eat them in the dining room if you want. Excellent value for money, and a really relaxing stay in a wonderful setting. I wouldnt stay anywhere else when visiting this area. Only one problem.. there are only three rooms. a double, twin and a single, so make sure you book in early as otherwise you will be disappointed !!

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent, but there is only one double, however the twin was just as nice

I’ve stayed at the Elms quite a few times over recent years when racing at nearby Snetterton – it’s always exceptionally good. Everything is spotlessly clean, bedrooms and en-suite facilities first rate, and breakfast as good as it gets. Thoughtful and kind attention from the owners, altogether as good a country B&B as you could find – thoroughly recommended. Where else do you get tea and freshly baked cakes on your arrival?!
