DEPOSITS: For stays of three nights or more, a deposit for the first night will be taken at time of booking from the credit / debit card used to guarantee your reservation.


When booking a Short Break online, please let us know your preferred time for dinner; we will book your table at the nearest available time and email you to confirm.


To book a Short Break which includes a Sunday or Monday night (when the Dining Room is closed), please book Bed & Breakfast and let us know which evenings you would like dinner, together with your preferred time – we will amend your booking to the appropriate Short Break tariff and confirm by email. We have a list of suggested restaurants both in Norwich and the local area where you can get an evening meal and we will be pleased to make a reservation for you at the restaurant of your choice if required.


CANCELLATION / CURTAILMENT: Sometimes cancellation is unavoidable and we always try to be fair and reasonable if you need to cancel or amend your booking. We are a small, independent property however, and any cancellation or non-arrival affects us significantly, so if we are unable to secure an alternative reservation we do reserve the right to charge if your booking is cancelled within our cancellation window.

The length of your stay determines the notice you must give us to avoid cancellation fees. For example if your booking is for a single night, you need only give us one days’ notice i.e by noon the day prior to your arrival, whereas if your reservation is for four nights you would need to let us know four days before you are due to arrive. If you are staying seven nights or longer, you must let us know at least one week prior to your arrival date that you are no longer able to come.

Alternative cancellation terms may apply to multiple room bookings and we will agree these with you at time of booking. A deposit will be required for bookings of three room nights or more.

Advance Purchase (Prepay) rates are for a specific date(s) and are strictly non-refundable and non-transferable.

In the unlikely event that you have to curtail your booking, a fee may be payable for the night(s) you are unable to stay, especially at busy periods and where we have turned away other bookings.
