Details

The Old Rectory is a Grade II listed Georgian house dating back to 1754. It is the home of Chris, Sally and James Entwistle and their Birman cats Rolo and Milli. Surrounded by mature gardens overlooking the River Yare, the hotel is situated in a residential conservation area on the eastern outskirts of Norwich (city centre 2 miles). In this delightful setting you will find a relaxing atmosphere and friendly hospitality. Eight spacious guest rooms are individually styled, beautifully appointed, with fine bed linen, fluffy bathrobes and many thoughtful finishing touches. Unwind over a pre-dinner drink in our elegant Drawing Room and choose from our award-winning 'Prix-fixe' menu and a selection of quality wines from around the world. Our Conservatory looks out onto the pool terrace (outdoor, unheated swimming pool usually open spring / summer) and is a relaxing spot to enjoy afternoon tea. Small business meetings (max 12 guests) can be catered for in our Wellingtonia Room.
