38 St.Giles

We were invited to have breakfast and a tour of the bespoke bed and breakfast 38 St.Giles, I'd seen a few pictures on Julianne's Instagram so was excited when she asked us. The business is family run with George as front of house, he also cooked the stunning breakfast we ate before our tour. I had scrambled eggs with vine tomatoes, it was divine, the eggs were perfectly seasoned ( I take this quite seriously) and the tomatoes were so sweet, I ate it all! I had to try the home made jam though so I made like a Hobbit and had second breakfast right after first, the blackberry and basil jam was thick and full of fruit, it actually felt pretty healthy. There was freshly squeezed orange juice and breakfast tea to accompany the food, all ingredients apart from the oranges are locally sourced, coffee comes from Strangers and they're also getting their own blend of tea soon. The place has a really nice homely feel to it, they have regular guest who feel like family and I think that's pretty special.
Right, on to the rooms, I couldn't wait to have a snoop around, obviously not the occupied ones! The whole building is very impressive with period features throughout, chandeliers hang in the stairwells, stained glass windows, impressive cornices and wonderful wallpapers. I was truly smitten with this place, the rooms are all lovely, with beautiful bathrooms and L'occitane toiletries. You can expect home made cake in you room along with spring water and tea making facilities, all bedding is Egyptian Cotton and everything is pretty sumptuous. The piece de resistance is the suite with the most amazing bathroom, the stand alone bath, stained glass doors and black tiled shower room are to die for. The location is killer too, just a minutes walk to The Lanes and everything you need for a taste of the real Norwich.
prices start from £95 and kids stay free
