English Tourism Week

Hi everyone!

17th -25th March is English Tourism Week. There is lots going on in Norwich City and we have availability at 106 The Malt House from Friday 23rd.

Take a look at the Visit Norwich site for a heap of information on Free Siteseeing Bus Tours, events at Norwich Castle, visiting Surrey House’s Marble Hall, Norwich Castle and more…

To book a city break here at 106 either fill in our booking form or contact us at info@norwichselfcatering.co.uk we will book you in personally, make sure the apartment is warm and immaculate and be available to talk if you need advice about the city we love so much!

Make sure you like & follow us on Facebook, this is the only place we advertise our special offers…

Visit Norwich.

Hi everyone, well, there a tonne of snow on the ground outside, so I’m wrapped up on the sofa while Mr 106 watches Tottenham V Rochdale on the telly. Apologise, but seems like the perfect time to blog, and give a mention to the Visit Norwich App!

Visit Norwich is a local tourist information provider based at The Forum in the city. We advertise with them annually and they are a great source of news, places to visit and things to do here. Have a look and see what you think.

If you’d like to chat, email or book, do get in touch, we will always try to get you booked in as smoothly as possible…

East Twenty Six

This week we have visited East Twenty Six on Exchange St in the city centre, the interior is what I’d call modern industrial, I loved it. The music slightly ‘South American’/Cuban, which if you’ve read other blogs from me, you will know always goes down a treat!

The building is pretty cool and the location perfect for lunch, drinks or dinner. The menu seems to be based around Tapas style eating and there were heaps of wines on offer.

The staff were friendly and informative. We’ll be going back…

If we can help you by booking a restaurant table at any of the places you see on our site, just phone once you’ve booked 07887 402711 Sarah x

SHHHH Guide to Norwich

The SHHHH Guides to Norwich have arrived at 106!

We love them, they give heaps of clear info on Norwich Cafe’s, Restaurants, Shops, Entertainment & Places to go.

We’ve started finding little treasures we haven’t noticed  before, particularly some eateries on Exchange Street, that we had missed as they are first floor businesses, or we simply hadn’t seen them!

To have a copy of your own ready for your arrival for your city break, simply add it to your booking form when you reserve your dates £7…


Service Fee? Why…

We are a small business, aiming to provide a lovely place for single guests or couples to spend a few nights or a month in Norwich.

We can have as much, or as little contact with our guests as they want, take the bookings ourselves, make 106 immaculate before each new arrival, and we love it!

But, if you believed all you read on some of the big  online travel agent websites, you’d be forgiven for thinking we might just take your hard earned pennies and run off for an expensive safari in South Africa, never to be seen again…

So, you book time and time again, from one of the two big sites, that actually own nearly all of the big sites, and you pay the service fee to protect your payments…

Since these sites started charging guests a service fee, we no longer advertise with any of them. We only place ads with online sites that charge us a fee not you! These include Visit Norwich, Glaven Valley, Internet Cottages, Cottages Direct & Britain’s Finest.

You will find our website, usually in the top two pages of Google, because we sit until the wee small hours tweaking and blogging to keep us there, (with a cuppa and a decent slab of chocolate)!

We take a 30% deposit when you book, which is non refundable, you then pay the balance and a refundable housekeeping deposit, 4 weeks before you arrive for your holiday in Norwich. If you are cautious, pay by credit card, with all the protection this delivers from your bank, if you prefer cheques, we still accept them, if you love BACS, do that (we love that one too). We will send an email confirmation of each payment we receive.

Take out travel insurance, this is standard advice. If you need to cancel at short notice, we can write a letter to your insurers if it helps.

Where ever you decide to book, consider reading this article first!
