The hotel consists of three 'grade two' listed Georgian buildings, is situated in a pretty tree lined conservation area only a short stroll from the City centre. Standing in landscaped award winning gardens, with ample car parking, the hotel remains a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the 'Fine City' of Norwich.
Built in 1832, 34 & 36 as private houses, subsequently converted into a hotel in the 1930's by Mr WD Gibbs. Since 1985 the hotel has been owned and operated by David & Jill Reynolds, over which time there has been a continual program of upgrade and refurbishment to ensure high levels of comfort are offered. Every effort is made to make you feel relaxed and at home. 2011 saw the conversion of one of our three Coach Houses to executive bedrooms, the development of our new lounge and the total refurbishment of our Conservatory Restaurant.  We have kept true to our Georgian roots but with a contemporary twist - we do hope you like the changes.

Two of the buildings are linked together by a glass walkway which houses a Black Hamburg grape vine which is over 75 years old. It produces sweet black grapes which are often used as an accompaniment to our excellent Norfolk cheese selection.

All 30 bedrooms are warmly furnished to provide a high degree of comfort. Trouser press, iron and board, hair dryer, hospitality tray, flat screen Freeview tv, DVD player and dressing gown are standard.

FREE High speed wireless internet access is available everywhere!
