we booked this holiday for a last minute weekend away and we were not disappointed. the external pictures of the hotel are very accurate and it does look beautiful. it is situated in a small village approximately 4 miles from norwich and it takes about 15 minutes on the bus which leaves from the main road approximately 5 minutes walk from the hotel. there are two pubs within walking distance from the hotel and a tesco in the village.
the bedroom was very nice with the largest bed i have ever slept in. the bed was extremely comfortable. the bathroom was ok although we would have preferred a bath rather than the shower provided ( although the shower was good) .
we ate in the restaurant on the 1st night and the food was excellent - the belly pork in particular was sublime.
staff were uniformly excellent- an example of this was that when i said i would pass on dessert as there was no sticky toffee pudding the member of staff went to the kitchen and produced one at short notice and because it didn't come with toffee sauce and wasn't officially on the menu we were not charged for it!
breakfast was lovely.
my only minor criticism would be that the decore of the public rooms /staircase/corridors looked a little tired and dated .
i would have no hesitation of staying here again if looking for somewhere to stay in the norwich area.
