Best Western Annesley House Hotel Norwich.

You can expect to find unparalleled natural beauty at the Best Western Annesley House Hotel in Norwich, which sits just a stroll away from the historic city centre. The hotel is located in a tree-lined conservation area just outside Norwich's ancient city walls, with plenty to do nearby. We recommend dedicating some time to the 'Norwich 12', during your stay at the Annesley House. These 12 iconic heritage buildings span across 2000 years of history, and are well worth some appreciation.

Norwich Castle, Norwich Cathedral, the City Hall and the St James Mill are among some of the 12 gems, and all less than 10-minutes drive from the hotel. You can pick up a Norwich 12 guidebook from most tourist information points to really delve into the rich history of this beautiful city. For some scenic walks, The Norfolk Broads - Britain's newest National Park - is right on your doorstep when staying at the Annesley House Hotel, and offers many breath-taking rivers and lakes to admire. If you still have some free time, the pretty coastal villages of Cley, Wells-next-the-Sea and Happisburgh (check out the little lighthouse) are only a short drive away.

The hotel itself is made up of three Grade II listed Georgian buildings, with blooming flowers and shrubbery decorating each. Our award-winning Conservatory restaurant enjoys views over the water garden, with menus changing frequently, but standards remaining exceptionally high. The Conservatory restaurant offers both a fine-dining and lighter bites menu, whilst the Lounge bar offers an array of delicious nightcaps to end your evening in comfort.

If a first-class hotel is what you're looking for, you have come to the right place. The hotel has been awarded the coveted AA Silver Star Award, given to only a select few highly recommended hotels. These hotels must offer a superior level of quality, with regards to hospitality, service and cleanliness, as well as possessing an AA Rosette award for the quality of their food. With credits such as this to the Best Western Annesley House name, its difficult to deny it as one of the finest amongst the many Norfolk hotels.
