                Location was very good and it is a rather quaint hotel. However, see comments below.

                Although the hotel had charm I felt it is in dire need of refurbishment. The walls look as though they have not been painted for a very long time. Furniture looked outdated and very old. Room was ok but felt that it was not as clean as it should have been, not to my standard at all. Sign posting to room not very clear and felt this is a minor detail which would not take much effort to correct so don't understand why it would be so difficult to rectify such a small problem.,

                We would have liked breakfast included in the pricebut as this was not included it was easy to find good alternatives near to the hotel at a reasonable price.

                Wonderful room over looking the cathedral, central to Tombland area, giving options of high street dining in wonderful relaxed friendly ambience, surrounded by wonderful buildings creating an unusual city feel. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel had that individual classic atmosphere that big chain hotels can not create The breakfast might appear a bit expensive but it is the best.

                Location was superb, and the staff very helpful and professional

                The executive room was not very nice, broken bath, no plug for the sink and of course very hot as no air flow, just expecteda little more for the cost of £89

                8.2

                We last stayed at the Maids Head over 20 years ago and were pleased to find that it has retained its charm and character. The hotel is very comfortable, the food good and the staff very helpful and friendly.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Very pleasant staff. I would happily return if there is a future visit to Norwich.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Excellent location, very close to all city centre attractions, places to eat etc, but also quiet. Large car park also a big plus. Rooms attractive and very clean. Staff very friendly and efficient. Food in the restaurant good and breakast excellent.

                My only gripe is the exceptionally hard pillows, with no choice of anything softer. If you are pillow-sensitive, bring your own!

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                We stayed at the Maids Head because we wanted to be near to Norwich Cathedral and we were! The staff were extremely helpful, we had a wonderful dinner on Saturday night and because we were going to church on Sunday they let us keep our room until midday - very kind and helpful.
