We have stayed at the Waveney a few times now, most recently for a valentines special.
The location of the hotel is superb, set in the quiet village of Beccles and down a small lane off the main road. The hotel itself is located right on the Norfolk Broards giving you stunning views on the river and countryside across the river, so road noise is non-existent.
During the summer months the the hotel is a gorgeous place to visit, with large outside areas to chill out and relax beside the river and also very family friendly.
The hotel entrance is very well presented, and welcoming in the winter months as they have a selection of leather chairs to relax in beside the large wood burner.
The public bar area is well presented and leads into a large, bright conservatory (even in winter months) which then leads straight out beside the river. With attentive staff and quite a good selection of beers, wine and soft drinks for the little ones. The food served is gorgeous, well priced and will usually arrive in 30 minutes or so.
The rooms are also very nice with comfortable beds. Although the rooms are nicely presented you won't find a mini-bar or air-con in any of the rooms. Not that we have every seen this as a problem, but some people may see this as an issue.
The restaurant area is also nicely presented with welcoming staff ready to seat you. Again we really could not fault the food and selection of drinks available. If you are booking request a table by the river, as even at night the views are lovely as the river is partly lit up.
There are very few down sides to The Waveney, but you should be aware the hotel is surrounded on 2 sides by its carpark so views from some rooms may not be as good as others and we feel the bathrooms could do we a make over as they are starting to look and feel tired.
Overall we love the Waveney as a location to visit of a quick drink or for a short stay and would not
hesitate to visit again and again. :)
