Stylish, quality ‘Country House’ hotel accommodation in Norwich

The Old Rectory, Norwich’s only AA ‘Red Star’, 2 AA Rosette hotel, is a delightful privately-owned Grade II listed Georgian property on the eastern fringes of the city where you can enjoy warm and genuine hospitality, a relaxing atmosphere and award-winning food with friendly service – the perfect combination for a Short Break or a rejuvenating overnight stay.

Standing in an acre of mature, secluded gardens in Thorpe St Andrew, just over two miles from Norwich city centre, we offer you a choice of eight beautifully appointed, non-smoking guest rooms, most with south-facing views over the Yare valley and NWT Thorpe Marshes, Norwich’s newest nature reserve.

In winter our warming log fire welcomes you back from your sightseeing or shopping , whilst during the summer months you can laze a while with a good book on our pool terrace or watch the busy lives of our many garden birds. Business guests will find The Old Rectory a calm and restful setting in which to relax from the strains of the working day, enjoy a delicious meal and feel revived and refreshed after a good night’s sleep.

If you are planning a longer visit, take a look at Dowager’s Cottage, our cosy 4 star non-smoking self-catering property, sleeping 2 guests, which is situated within the hotel grounds.

We, and our Birman cats Rolo & Milli, look forward to welcoming you soon
