Could not praise the gentleman that we dealt with more, he was friendly, welcoming and attentive. The room was comfortable and had everything you need including a bottle of water, not something a lot of hotels give out. It was quite a warm couple of nights and even though the window was left open the room was still quite warm. The shower did have quite a bit of lime scale on the shower head but ran with a decent power. There was a good choice at breakfast with continental and hot. I did fine my scrambled eggs on the second morning were slightly undercooked for my liking but the best was very good. The parking is very limited but there is a car park literally round the corner if need be. Really enjoyed our stay at the wensum lodge

We stayed for 4 nights over new year. We could not fault the hotel. The staff went out of their way to help even down to the dog bowl by the breakfast table ! Superb cooked breakfasts.our room, albeit a little bit on the small side, was comfortable and the shower better than some 5 stars we have stayed in ! All in all a good hotel that we can highly recommend in fact with a little bit of updating would easily pass for a 4 star hotel.

Very good service and lovely food. A disabled room on the ground level would have been helpful. This hotel not suitable for anyone who cannot walk up around 12 steps to the bedroom level.Rooms were very nice but could have done with at least a couple of more lights. One above the dressing table in particular. The concertina door to the bathroom appeared to have no lock on it although as both of us were using the rooms as single people this was not an issue.Overall stay was good value for money.

Nice Hotel, but needs improvements - Rating 3/5

Stayed for one night only. A nice hotel, located within a few hundred yards of town centre.Staff were pleasant and professional. Food was excellent for both breakfast and evening.Improvements however can be considered.Our bed frame was creaky, as too the floor, and the room above with other guests was just as bad, with every footstep being heard on creaky floorboards. Bathroom ceiling just needs a mould spray.Even for people who enjoy some peace and quiet, we found both our evening and breakfast experience in complete silence a little strange.Maybe some background music would help here. Our bath cold tap needed attention as it only turned on to a trickle.In conclusion, lovely place, great staff, but in need of improvement and a little attention to detail.
