I stayed at the Earlham Guest House for two nights during a study-trip. I spent all days walking the streets and browsing libraries and archives. To return to Earlham Guest House was always a relief, with its tidy and welcoming athmosphere (with a bowl of sweets on the hall-cupbard). I also appreciated a feel of privacy in the place as a restful secluded spot of my own.
This B&B is perhaps not for fancy people, but if you are not, it has all you can ask for in cleanliness and basic equipment. The bed was good, extra blankets provided, it had a tv, free wireless Internet, central heating, a small basin, hospitable tray and cupbards and drawers. My single room was tiny and very clean, with shared facitities, but that was totally ok for the price I payed. I found the place a bit noisy, thin walls, but the sound I heard was never offensive in any way, plus I always travel with earplugs.
Breakfast was fine, everything you can ask for, in a basic, rustic yet cute and neat fashion; tea or coffee, juice, fruit, cereal, eggs, sausages, hash-browns, sausages, toast, the lot, of your choice. It was a twenty mns walk to get to the city centre on foot, but plenty of buses. And, if you walk you enter the city center by some of its more picturesque old streets, with very interesting shops, leading to the heart of the city with town-hall, library and market.
