The Good, the bad but definately not ugly!
Hotel accommodation was very clean. Large room with a superb comfortable huge double bed. Room service a treat with made beds, fresh towels and topped up refreshment facilities each day. Nice welcome and friendly helpful staff. Cooked breakfast average. Served so quickly that it was obvious the hot food had been cooked earlier and kept warm. As such it lacked a little freshness. Breakfast staff were young, inexperienced and appeared to be working untrained. Lots of small mistakes all forgivable and didn't really spoil our stay. Dining area very dingy and old fashioned. The alternative dining area in the conservatory was lovely but used for functions at weekends. Altogether a pleasant stay and great value for money. Would return.

The hotel, accommodation, food , staff. , Location, and grounds. Was faultless. Absolute perfection. They couldn't help you enough. The staff and owner were very pleasant and friendly but totally professional through out. Would highly recommend it to anybody wanting a relaxed and friendly holiday or short break. And although we didn't take our dogs, they are pet friendly too!! And the food isall home ccooked buy a trained on the premises chef. And his puddings are to die for .loved the whole experience. Well done to all of them.

Good quality and value.
Hotel is modern and clean with helpful cheery staff. Food is good, not over pretentious or mean on quantity. Only problem was the other guests and the lack of room sound proofing. But have a few drinks before bed and isn't a problem anymore. I recommend this hotel for any Norwich short stay.

We've stayed there number of times now and it never disappoints. Would be great if they'd update their menu more often.

Old Rectory Review
The room was very very nice, big and very clean. So was the bathroom. My only comments regarding the room is that I would have wanted a seperate bin in the bathroom.
We did not have an evening meal and only had breakfast, which was not the best I had. The choice on offer was not great and the cooked breakfast felt more like canteen food than a weekend treat.
The staff were very friendly and made us welcome.
Altogether a good stay and the location is good to explore Norfolk.

Lovely helpfull family ran hotel, nothing was too much trouble for them.
I have to follow a gluten free diet, and they ensured that my evening meal was prepared correctly. At breakfast, they provided me with gluten free bread.

Luxury on a budget
Staff very welcoming and this set the scene for the whole stay. Only draw back was for friends who came later in the dark, following a SatNav. As the hotel has no precise number, they were sent into Norwich.
