Beautiful hotel with lots of character.
Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again
Beautiful hotel in the heart of the city
After growing up in Norwich, The Maids Head was always a familiar sight and it was great to have the opportunity to stay there while visiting over bank holiday weekend.
The executive suite was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The staff were friendly. The hotel is in a great location, just seconds away from Elm Hill and within walking distance of some excellent restaurants. Would definitely stay again.
