“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

What a cracking place to stay As it was our honeymoon we looked long and hard. . Our room, the Geranium room, was large,very spacious, a double and two single beds. It overlooked the old fish pond and the gardens. And what gardens the island beds are stunning. Very well kept, a cracking job by the small team of gardeners on site. Ian, the chap who runs Bressingham Hall is a smashing chap, and his breakfasts are fantastic. The steam collection is good, but at the moment lacks a standard gauge working locomotive which is a real shame, as the track is in situ. The Dads Army Collection and garden centre we found good, nice baguettes in the garden centre. As we stayed in the hall we had access to the gardens before public opening times and after closing which we loved. Staying at the hall meant our entrance to Bressingham Steam museum was included which we felt was great value for money. The most relaxing place we have ever stayed in, first class, and we will return.

Room Tip: Geranium room is lovely.

Good honest accommodation set in gardens that are world renowned. Friendly hosts and a cracking breakfast. The only downside is the communal breakfast table where you might have to put up with some London types womping on about going to 'Ramseys'.

Room Tip: Green room has lovely views

If you want the best value room for your money, this is probably not the place to stay. However, if you want a unique experience and have any interest in plants or gardening, then you should stay here at least once.
You’ll rarely get the chance to stay in a house like this. The house itself is a wonderful old building and with its interesting history involving Alan Bloom, it’s not your average B & B.
It is a relaxing comfortable environment for a weekend away. The geranium room was a calm room with great views, a lovely bed and thick soft towels. Sitting around the table with plant enthusiasts and a knowledgeable host, eating a delicious well-cooked breakfast was a memorable experience.
And that’s before you even get to the incredible gardens and the chance to get in without the crowds….

My husband and myself stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, and it was wonderful. The hotel is set in the middle of Bressingham Gardens. So the views out the windows were beautiful. The house itself is full of old world charm but was lovely. The bedroom was exceptionally clean & comfortable. Ian, the proprieter of the hotel was a wonderful host. He told us all about the history of Bressingham Hall & the gardens. He told us of other places to visit. & his English Breakfasts were fantastic. He could'nt have been a better host. ( & he gave me a lovely big bag of home grown rhubarb to come home with.) We would definately recommend a break at this hotel.
Thanks Ian for a lovely weekend.

Bressingham Hall is a little different from the average B & B. It is set in the grounds of the beautifully kept gardens that were originally planted by Alan Bloom with the intriguing Bressingham Steam Museum a very short walk away. We were warmly greeted by Ian (our excellent host) whose humour, knowledge of the estate's history and delicious breakfasts added much to our stay. The bed linen was superb and the bed was probably the most comfortable we have ever slept in at a B&B.

Unlimited entry to the gardens and steam museum is included with your stay, being particularly enjoyable to a couple like ourselves who love gardens and steam trains.

Yes there is no central heating, although there are extremely efficient electric heaters in the rooms. Yes the shower's small, but our room, (Geranium) was huge with an interesting view of the pond and gardens.

We really enjoyed our stay

The house inside is gradually being restored and when the front porch is finally finished it will make a much more welcoming entrance. At the moment the first impression inside is a little haphazard, however the bedroom was large and we had the best nights sleep and the bed and bedlinen were excellent, the shower is slightly out dated and small but there were adequate tea and coffee facilities. The breakfast was very good in every way. The situation of being set in this world class garden was wonderful.

This B&B was a great find, Ian, our host greeted us warmly and made us very welcome. The rooms were of a good size bright and airy. Tea, coffee facilities in the room and a good breakfast on each of the two days of our visit.

If you enjoy visiting gardens, steam museums, steam railway engines and Dad's Army exhibits you will find all on these within a very short stroll. The mail train is particularly interesting and the Carousel ride and other olde worlde fairground stalls added something extra.

The minature steam train ride past the gardens and the larger one through the nursery were another feature all run by staff who proved very happy to be of help.
