Good Hotel Guide Review

Well placed for visiting the market town, this ‘distinguished’ Georgian bank-turned-town hotel is in a ‘fine waterfront setting’ within strolling distance, along cobbled streets, of historical buildings and handsome squares. Owned by the Goodrich family (see The Rose & Crown, Snettisham, main entry), it is popular with locals, who gather in its bar and newly redecorated brasserie. The individually decorated bedrooms vary in size and layout: call ahead to discuss best options. Most rooms have a river view; all have pampering toiletries, ‘good-quality magazines’, a ‘well-researched guide’ of local hotspots. ‘Great British classics’ are served indoors and out, across several dining areas. Pay-and-display parking is close by.

Comments about Bank House

We very much enjoyed our stay in the King’s Roomon the quieter side of the hotel, There was excellent lighting for reading .The staff are all locals and provided excellent service. The food was good and the portions were enormous – starter sizes were quite enough for a normal appetite. Tasty breakfast with locally sourced ingredients and home made jams. - Michael Gwinnell - February 2019
The location in unbeatable and the historic building has always been its harmonious self. It is a favourite drinking point for locals . Out rook on the. on the top floor was large and airy and well appointed. Brilliant information pack. Reception was correct without being affable. - Francine and Ian Walsh - August 2018
Management most helpful offering me a room away from the noisy bar. Breakfast was excellent. The house is attractive, the rooms are well appointed and well kept. Service good and helpful. - Anne Laurence Thackray - January 2018
