Best Western Annesley House Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Booked as within walking distance of city - and free car parking - a bit quirky as our rooms were in the next building - comfy bed; clean room and great breakfast - what more could you ask for - thank you for a lovely stay. First time I've been to Norwich city centre - well worth another visit.

We were very surprised at how close this quaint hotel was from Norwich City Centre, only a short 5 minute walk to the shopping centres. Averaged sized rooms but the bed was very big and comfortable, enormous pictures of seagulls were slightly unnerving however. Hotel was always kept clean and staff were friendly and polite throughout our stay. Easy to find and a decent sized car park.

We stayed at Annesley House Hotel for two nights at the end of July. We were greeted warmly at reception on arrival. Room was nice with free bottles of water and biscuits replenished daily and tea making facilities. We booked for evening meals and the food was lovely with a good selection from two menus (fine dining or more general good food). Breakfasts were also very good and the staff were very efficient and friendly. We would definitely stay at this hotel again. There is an outside area with fish pond and patio which is a really nice quiet place to sit.

We reserved an executive double room and stayed in one of several annexes, the Coach House. Our room was spotless and with the best walk-in shower I have ever seen. Although on the Newmarket Road (A11) the room was very quiet, extremely comfortable, and with a huge bed! The food in the restaurant was great, we had two day trips out but took dinner the other two nights. There are two menus and you can mix and match between them. Breakfast was also excellent. There is a very pleasant slightly less-formal feel to this hotel which along with the quality puts it right up there with my other fave Best Western, The Crown in Lyndhurst. This was our second stay here at the Annesley House and we will be back for a third.

Stayed for four nights at this wonderful hotel for our sons graduation, loved that it was very unique and quirky(tree growing through conservatory for one) and the staff are AMAZING!!! Nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was great and served to perfection, very well organised and in a beautiful dining room. Room(14) wasn't huge but bathroom was a good size so overall very happy. Only teeny weeny comment would be that as this room is directly above laundry you do hear the extractor fan from quite early in the morning but we are early risers so didn't really disturb us. We didn't want to leave, so relaxing. Had dinner one evening and was very happy with this also. Nice bar area to sit and relax i. Garden as well if weather allows. Very good value for money, highly recommend

Once we arrived, check-in was really fast and we were directed to our room which was in the red brick building to the left of the main hotel. Our room was clean with all the amenities you would expect - including a fan in the wardrobe which was a really welcome addition as the weather was really hot when we stayed. The bathroom was great with a waterfall style shower. There was a small bar, reception room and a beautiful garden outside with a pond where you can have your drinks in the sunshine - so relaxing! We had breakfast on the last morning and it was fine. The hotel itself is a 15 minute walk from Norwich centre and, as the weather was so lovely, we never needed a taxi. The only negative would be that the floor in room above ours was really loud and creaky and there seemed to be people constantly walking around from about 4am on two nights that we stayed - I would try to arrange a different room next time for that reason. That said, I would definitely stay here again if ever back in Norwich.

Been using this hotel since 1995, if memory serves. Stayed again recently, arriving 13 July 2017 for 3 nights. Everything up to usual standard. Clean, comfortable room. Excellent food. Friendly staff. Not much else to add really.

A two night stopover so we could catch up with different friends and see something of Norwich. Hotel is excellent, rooms in different buildings each having its own character. Our room was spotless, with a good sized bathroom. There was a rather large step down from the doorway to the main room which caught us out a couple of times, and the building was in a triangle between the Ipswich road and the Newmarket road which made traffic noise in the early morning an issue. (Better with windows shut, but it was a hot couple of days.) Breakfast very good, apart from flabby toast. Lots of choice, fresh coffee. We also ate there on the first night, again a good choice of freshly cooked food. A nice bar area and a lovely garden with pond. (Sad that in this day and age signs have to ask people to behave there.) We would happily stay there again and see more of Norwich.

This hotel has a great variety of rooms, all of which are very comfortable (I've stayed in a few) Despite there being months between my visits, the staff always greet me like an old friend with Shelley in particular standing out

Booked for convenience to a party location and discovered a delightful hotel well worth its 3 stars. Reception very helpful; room very comfortable with both bath and shower. Very hot weekend and no air - con. There was a fan but we did not find it in the wardrobe until next day. Gardens very pleasant for an early drink- did not have dinner but breakfast next day in the conservatory was everything you could wish for. Plenty of choices well served by happy and obliging staff. Bonus for my wife was proximity to city centre (walking distance) which prompted an early purchase. Will use again if an overnight in Norwich is needed.
