“Exceptional”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

We first found this bed & breakfast in June 2011, we liked it so much we have never bothered to look for anywhere else. We have now stayed three times and each time we have been made to feel welcome by Lesley & Brian. Accommodation is exceptionally clean, comfortable with bright and tastefully decoration. The beds are very comfortable. Breakfast is a delicious full english breakfast in a bright a cheerful room. A fridge is available if you wish to bring in your own food for a snack in the evening which is eaten in the breakfast room (no eating in rooms permitted which I think is sensible). Tea and coffee facilities in room. We couldn't find fault with this exceptional bed & breakfast and would strongly recommend it excellent value.

We stayed overnight on way to a funeral. The room was very Cosy and warm especially as it was very wet and windy outside. Breakfast good full English and good value. Only gripe I would make is that the water was only Luke warm in the shower, other than that, very good. Would stay again.

The St. Edmundsbury is a classical guest cottage set into the rolling countryside outside of Norwich. It is in a rural area a few miles away and requires a car (and a good map) to find - there is free parking in front of the inn. The B&B is an extension of the family's house which can lead to some initial confusion - sitting rooms for the family are not easy to distinguish from rooms for the guests, people assigned to meet guests are intermingled with people living there. Nonetheless, I connected with the right person who helped me get settled - there are interior steps and narrow, sharp hallways that may keep this from being accessible to people with disabilities.

The rooms are comfortable and well kept: the room feels like a home bedroom and the beds are nice. There is a television, but wifi is only available in the sitting room. The bathroom is small but adequate - there was adequate hot water and fair pressure. Breakfast is served in a large sunlit room off the entryway and is light fare of cereals, fruits, cakes, and juices.

The B&B is within reasonable distance of the Norwich airport (the reason I chose it ahead of an early flight to the US via Amsterdam) and has a warm and home-y feel. You mingle pretty closely with the extended family and are a bit distant from Norwich center, but this is otherwise a good alternative to in-town hotels.

Unfortunately the hospitality and comforts were lacking big time, breakfast was poor, all wardrobes were padlocked closed, towels were used and old, bed uncomfortable and the duvet was thin and worn with no undersheet.

I booked this B&B for 12 of us going to a wedding nearby
The owners couldn't have been more helpful - they booked our taxi to & from the wedding
rooms were lovely & clean, breakfast was great

We will come back & visit the area so we can stay here again
