Fabulous customer service! - Rating 5/5

We stayed 2 nights at the Wensum Lodge Hotel with a 3 year old and a 10 month old baby. You never know how easy/hard it's going to be being away from home with little ones but the Wensum Lodge Hotel made our stay very, very easy indeed - and it was all down to their relaxed and friendly customer service. They provided us with the right room, a pull out bed for our 3 year old, a cot for our baby, let us use the high chair in the restaurant or in our room, let us make use of a small fridge for storing home made baby food and we were able to re-heat baby food in the kitchen's microwave. They're small things but they really count when you're travelling with a baby with a very particular diet. For the adults, a decent full english breakfast and quick room service. Most of all I was impressed with how very friendly and approachable all the staff were. They made our stay very stress-free! Thank you!!!!

Breakfast was lovely, cooked to order and hot when it came out. My only fault would be it was a double bed, need a king size or twin room next time. Would stay again.

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

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.

Norfolk weekend - Rating 4/5

We only stayed the one night and found the staff were very pleasant and helpful the late lunch we had on arrival was nice but a bit of microwave pinging was heard! (It was near to the endof service) the full english breakfast the following morning was lovely I had to help finish my mother inlaws off this set me up for the day( A childs version this could be offered) The rooms were clean and tidy get into the ensuit through what looked like wardrobe doors caused a bit of fun for my wife and I. I have already recommended the hotel to some friends.

Overall assessment - Rating 4/5

staff lovely and very helpful. But more staff needed. Food, first class. Food, portions to big so I felt guilty in leaving so much for on my plate!! Don't not book the Wesum because of my assessment. It gives very good value for money, enjoyable food (but to much!!). Ideal if going to theThursford Xmas show. We will use it if around to go to Thursford in 2015.

We booked wensum for a one night stay due to going to a show nearby. The hotel was nice and clean as was our room and nothing was to much trouble and jason the manager even arranged for our dinner to be cooked early due to us having to leave for the show and dinner was good.THe staff were lovely and friendlyand we would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a nice break and hopefully we will go back again next year.

Clean and Comfortable - Rating 3/5

Ideal location for attending Fakenham Races albeit poor ambience allied to virtual lack of any other customers. In addition to ourselves we only spotted four other people in the bar/lounge/restaurant all evening. First class food.

Nice clean room, friendly staff. We had a twin room and one of the beds was uncomfortable but the other was fine. The cooked breakfast was very nice, could have been more choice of continental breakfast. Overall a good stay.

4-day break - Rating 5/5

We spent a 4-day "long week-end"at the Wensum Lodge, as a 55th Anniversary celebration, and the whole experience was very pleasant. Attractive location, quiet comfortable room with all desired facilities, and the cheerful, polite staff dealt with my occasional menu choice idiosyncrasies without batting an eyelid ! We have no immediate plans to return to Norfolk, but should the occasion arise we will not bother toconsider anywhere else for our stay. Many thanks for a delightful break.

Good again! - Rating 4/5

Third or Fourth time stayed here, each time friendly service, clean rooms,good breakfast. Reasonably priced, would recommend especially if going to races. Only criticism, wasn't busy but weren't able to check in early even though no one checked that rooms were available or not.
