We like to try to make sure you leave 106 feeling happy and content after your Norwich Self Catering Holiday or Corporate Stay and that you have enjoyed your time in Norwich.
Here’s some feedback we’ve received since January 2014. Most of these thoughts can be read in full in the apartment guest book in Norwich. Some lovely comments also come by text and email.
As of Sept 2016 our booking system shows guest comments automatically to our ‘Reviews’ link on every page! The reviews below were left in our guest book separately.

P & G. Oct 2016 – The best apartment we have stayed in. So close to all that Norwich has to offer. We were able to sit out on the decking which was great after a day of foot slogging. It was definitely worth the journey down from Newcastle. Many thanks.

J & M. August 2016. We have had a lovely stay at 106. The apartment was well equipped, stylish and close to all the amenities.

M & C. July 2016 – We have had a lovely week in Norwich – What a great city and very interesting. Our stay has been complete, staying in such a fabulous appointment, so stylish and well equipped.

C & S. May 2016 – Many thanks for the excellent apartment. We found it very convenient and had a great time.

J & M. March 2016 – Fantastic, we absolutely love the apartment. We’ll be returning later this year.
C & V. March 2016 – Just a brief visit, but the apartment was really convenient and entirely problem free. Secure and spacious parking is a definite plus.

We will be returning to Norwich at some point in the future and we are sure we will not be able to improve on The Malt House. It really works well. Best Wishes, and thanks for making everything so easy.
A & P. Feb 2016 – Just great. We hope to be back!
L & M. 5 Feb 2016 – A delightful apartment in a great location for access to Norwich. We had a wonderful time and thank you so much for your hospitality and giving us the opportunity to stay.
R & J. 23 Jan 2016 – The flat is modern, most comfortable and well appointed. As we visited in the winter, we can only imagine how nice the private terrace would be in the summer for relaxation in the evening. Access security is tight and one feels safe & secure within the building compound, anyone with mobility problems should be aware that, despite the availability of lifts, one has to negotiate many self-closing doors – particularly an issue if one has luggage.
The apartment block is located in a quiet area by the River Wensum along which one can have a delightful river-side walk to the entertainment and eating places in Riverside, the train station, and beyond. It is also only a short walk to the Forum and the centre of town. If you are a football fan, the Norwich FC stadium is just round the corner. We had no problems with provisions as a large supermarket is only 5 minutes’ drive up the hill (with a petrol station nearby), while another one is 10 minutes’ walk across the river. We had a most enjoyable stay. It was reassuring that Sarah was just a phone call away, and truly had our welfare in mind!” (by email).
F & J. New Year Week 2015-16 – We really appreciate Sarah’s attention to detail and her thoughtfulness. The apartment is lovely and is beautifully presented. Thank you.
R & M. Christmas Week Dec 2015 – Thanks so much. One of the best apartments that we have used, with great care before our stay to make sure everything went smoothly – we will be back. (Madrid).
A & G. Dec 2015 – Thank you once again, our third visit to your lovely apartment, so lovely and clean and smelt gorgeous when we opened the door. Had a busy weekend, but always looked forward to being back in the apartment. Thank you for everything.
S & J. Dec 2015 – Many thanks for another fab time in your lovely apartment. Pre Christmas Norwich was wonderful and once again we didn’t use the car from arrival to departure. You have created a really relaxing ambience here – we go home with batteries re-charged, looking forward to Christmas.
Hope to fit in a Spring Break.
M & L. Nov 2015 – Well what can I say, another wonderful week in your lovely flat here in Norwich, we love it here and want to move! Thank you for the wine, we will definitely be back again next year, hope you have a lovely Christmas.
K. Nov 2015 – Superb apartment, thoroughly enjoyed my weeks stay. I felt really spoilt opening electric gates from my car! Ideal location, very peaceful. I’m sure I’ll be back again.
V & S. Oct 2015 – We came to Norwich to see good friends and attend their son’s wedding. We are so pleased we saw your lovely apartment on the internet and decided to book for the week. We have really enjoyed our stay and thank you for staring your home with us. We will certainly recommend you.
J & J. Sept 2015 – As a Scot married to a Yorkshire lass, we felt doubly duty bound to find something to grumble about the accommodation. So we tried. While we visited the 1940s week-end at Sheringham we tried. While we cruised on the broads at Wroxham we tried. While we went on various steam trains and visited the transport museum at Carlton Colville we tried. While we sampled the many good foods and beers of Norwich we tried. AND WE FAILED! 106 The Malt House was simply an ideal base for our trip to Norwich and Norfolk. (taken from email 24/09/2015)
P & S. Sept 2015 – First & foremost it’s a big Thank You for being so kind with good communication skills. 106 is a lovely place to relax, explore or otherwise. It is a home from home experience. 106 The Malt House is the best self catering apartment that I’ve stayed at. I hope to be back at some point in 2016.
L & M & Baby F. Sept 2015 – We have had a fab time here introducing our 6 week old baby to my 95 year old Norfolk Grandad. Totally worth the 12 hour journey (after a breakdown!) Perfect location, 2 new pairs of Nikes was a nice treat (bargain). Apartment was well equipped. Only suggestion would be some takeaway menus, as we arrived so late on a Saturday night and couldn’t go out with the baby. Thank you again, we will definitely recommend you. (Owner comment: Great suggestion, we are now looking for local takeaway menu’s, but will only recommend what is recommended to us!).
A & J. August 2015 – We’ve had a lovely stay in Norwich & your flat made coming ‘home’ at the end of a hard days exploring, wonderful. The flat was very comfortable, clean and so well equipped. The bed by the way was so comfortable had trouble getting up in the morning (mind you, that could have been the wine!!) (Guests Suggested a steamer in kitchen, which we will look into!)
B & A. August 2015 – Very many thanks for our week at 106. Which we have thoroughly enjoyed. Your apartment is lovely, comfortable, everything thought of with great attention to detail. It has been the perfect base for us while our choir has been singing at the Cathedral this week and for exploring Norfolk. We’ve had a great time!
B & P. August 2015 – Thank you, once again we felt very much ‘home from home’ your standards make our stays stress free and so comfortable. The flat is ideal in so many ways, not least because it’s so clean and smart and comfortable…and thank you for that. Not all internet pictures of holiday lets live up to what they seem!! We had a happy time in the few days we were in Norwich. (By email, 3rd visit).
P & S. August 2015 – Have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 106. Apartment was spotless on arrival, and is well equipped and well appointed. It’s location on King Street is ideal for walking into Norwich as well as being a good base for exploring Norfolk by car. We’ve had enjoyable excursions to the Norfolk Broads and the North Norfolk Coast and Sandringham. Norfolk certainly has a lot to offer the holidaymaker. ‘It’s been a round-trip of ~645 miles and one of our best holidays ever. Thanks again for making your flat so home from home. Thanks for everything’! (by email).
S & A. July 2015 – We have just had the most amazing time, not just in Norwich but your apartment is superb! Such a gorgeous place to spend some time away from it all! It’s been wonderful, just a shame we don’t have another night x Thank you.
A & M. July 2015 – We have had a fantastic week here at 106. A great apartment in a great location. We have enjoyed Norwich very much, loads to see and do, good shopping & great food and drink opportunities. Norfolk as a whole has been wonderful & we will definitely return for further exploration. 106 has been a ‘home from home’ & we’re sad to leave. Hope to be back another day!!
P & M. July 2015 – Just a note to say thank you for our stay in your lovely apartment. It was a really good base to explore Norwich and the surrounding area. ‘In Norwich we recommend the following: The newly opened (this week) St. Andrews Brewhouse, 41 St. Andrew’s Street, Norwich, the first city centre microbrewery opened since 1974, excellent beer, accompanied by delicious food from their smokehouse. You may be able to see Steve, the brewer, hard at work. www.standrewbrewhouse.com
We also had some good food at The Dining Rooms. Where you can dine in either the courtyard, Great Hall or under the above ground vaulted ceiling at Suckling House and Stuart Hall, St. Andrews Hill (all part of the Cinema City complex).
For book lovers, visit The Book. Hive, 53 London Street, Norwich NR21HL, www.thebookhive.co.uk for an interesting and well displayed selection of new books. Jarrold, at 1-11 London St. Norwich NR2 1JT (www.jarrold.co.uk) is a wonderful local department store with extensive ranges on every floor from cooking utensils to haberdashery. We were impressed by the bookshop on the lower ground floor which has books on every subject. A small selection of foodstuffs and wines are available. On the top floor are a wonderful toy selection and craft materials. An adjacent shop houses art supplies and stationery. Norwich Cathedral, with its Norman architecture, medieval wall paintings on the Reliquary arch (Treasury) is well worth a visit. The Royal Arcade’s art nouveau decor is also worth a visit and houses the Colman Mustard shop and Museum. Outside Norwich, by far the best historic house is Houghton Hall (west of Fakenham).Blickling Hall (near Aylsham) on the Cromer road is also worthy of a visit. Best Wishes’.
C & M. July 2015 – We have really enjoyed a great week in your lovely apartment, a very high standard of accommodation and in an excellent location. Norwich is a really interesting and pleasant city to explore. Lots to see and do. Some great days out on the Broads and at The Royal Norfolk Show. It was really nice to meet you both and thanks for everything. We look forward to returning sometime, many thanks.
M & M. June 2015 – Lovely apartment. We have stayed in many, but Marlene says that this is the best equipped. Good location for city and Morrisons. Good days out at Blickling, Felbrigg and Southwold. For eating out recommend Bishops (not cheap, but good), also new Italian Pizza restaurant on Timber Hill (Donnelli’s). Go to Roman Catholic Cathedral for nice, peaceful gardens and restaurant. Norwich Lanes very interesting. Never Saw Delia!
G & E. June 2015 – The apartment was exactly as shown on your website, we look forward to a return visit (by email).
T & M. June 2015 – We’ve spent a wonderful week in your lovely apartment. Everything you could ask for (and more). Ideal location and close to all amenities. If you fancy a quiet walk in the Broads, we would highly recommend Thurne, a village with two windmills and miles of open countryside. Also recommend Cley Next The Sea. Many thanks for everything.
C & N. June 2015 – Thank you, we found the flat easily and very convenient for the city. Wheel chair access was easy and the bathroom was manageable for a good daily wash. The flat is really beautiful and homely. Many thanks. (Couple, including one wheelchair user).
S & J. June 2015 – We have had a super break in your fabulous apartment. We have fallen in love with Norwich and this haven for two! Many thanks.
J & J. May 2015 – Thank you for our home from home for the last two weeks, it has been superb to have our little haven within easy reach of all we needed. Next time we are coming back to explore all we missed. So much still to do.
M & C. May 2015 – We’ve had a lovely time at 106. The accommodation is fab, lovely and clean. Sore feet from too much shopping! Will recommend to all. Thanks again.
M & D. May 2015 – Ideal situation to explore our favourite city. Accommodation is a perfect little haven for two. We have had a brilliant week.
J & H. April 2015 – We have had a great time here in Norwich. Spent some time in the city and some time on the coast, the Broads and National Trust properties. Your apartment is wonderful. The terrace a great bonus. H has watered all troughs, pots and planters everyday as it has been so dry and sunny, and we have enjoyed sitting out there after a hard day sight seeing! We even sat out there at 9 pm with a coffee last night so we could appreciate the pretty solar lighting! The location of the apartment is great, too. We walked along the river to the Cathedral for our visit there. Another route into town. The eating places along the river just near here are useful too. Not haute cuisine I know ( mostly ‘chains’ ) but the steaks at Artorios were succulent and their Fish Set Menu looked interesting. The Queen of Iceni and Coast to Coast have terraces outside in the sun, great for an early evening drink riverside. And all within easy walking for my tired legs after a day on them!
S & A. April 2015 – Very nice and comfortable accommodation. Enjoyed our stay. No doubt will recommend to our friends.
S & M. March 2015 – The apartment has been exactly right for us. It is so much nicer too, to stay in or go out as and when you feel like it, rather than being in a hotel room. Hopefully we will be down again before too long and will definitely stay at 106 if it is available.
J & G. Feb 2015 – A very comfortable and well appointed apartment. Recommend No.12 , good food, casual dining. Thank you.
V & M. Jan 2015 – Super apartment, everything you could possibly need. Special thanks for the Gluten Free biscuits! Can I just say how lovely it was to be in a holiday let that enabled me to properly cook for a gluten free diet, we even managed to do some baking. I wish we had discovered you earlier, but fingers crossed if we need to come back you’ll be available!
J & P. Jan 2015 – Brilliant! Does what it says on the tin!
J & L. Jan 2015 – We loved Norwich, and the apartment, maybe a return visit when it’s a little warmer. Thank you.
C & R. Dec 14/Jan 15 – Thank you for letting us use your lovely apartment over the Festive Season (nice Christmas Tree)! You have thought of everything that anybody could need for a relaxed and comfortable stay! We would have no problem in recommending it to anybody else, and look forward to staying in it again. Happy New Year.
A & G. Dec 14 – Our second stay for a weekend this year, think that says it all. Love this apartment, Christmas Tree is lovely, thank you once again for everything.
D & M. Dec 2014 – Everything in the apartment perfect, just as guests have said before, and Norwich is a great city, we can see why you have the apartment. Hopefully we can return when the weather is warmer and take a boat trip and do some walking in the countryside instead of the pub… (by email). Another great week spent in Norwich. So nice to come back to such a lovely flat instead of a dreary hotel room. Ticked every box we could think of and look forward to returning in the not too distant future. Attention to detail and information was refreshing and most appreciated. Far too many real ale pubs to recommend – fab.
J & K. Nov 2014 – Just to say we had a brilliant time at The Malt House. Everything was just as you had described it and some more. We walked everywhere and just left the car in the garage which was brilliant, (by email).
L & M. Nov 2014 – Had a lovely week in your amazing flat, it’s lovely, so close to town and such a lovely warm, modern place, we will definitely be back next year. There are a lot of mirrors, I’ve never looked at myself so much! Much love…
K & J. Nov 2014 – We have had a lovely time in Norwich, a beautiful city with so much to do and friendly people. The flat was an excellent base, so comfortable and well equipped. A welcoming place to come back to after a day of exploring! Thank you.
J & D. Oct 2014 – Lovely apartment, so clean and well equipped and great location. Have enjoyed Norwich, beautiful city – so much to discover. Will definitely recommend 106 The Malt House. Many thanks.
C & V. Sept 2014 – Really enjoyed our stay in your great apartment. First time in this part of the world, Norwich is great! We have ‘done’ the area, including Cromer, Sheringham etc, all by train. We just put the car in the garage for the week and never used it (heaven). Thank you.
A & E. Sept 2014 – Thank you for letting us stay in your delightful apartment, in the beautiful city. We’ve had a truly magical time here and seven days just wasn’t enough time. Hope to come here again sometime soon. Thank you.
B & J from Durham – September 2014
We had an excellent week in the delightful Malthouse apartment which was exactly as described in the website details and images. It was perfectly clean, cosy, quiet and comfortable with everything possible needed for a holiday rental. The location is excellent: a lovely riverside walk past the cathedral and into the city centre, and the Riverside retail area with Morrisons for food shopping (and other stores) only about 5 minutes from the apartment. The owner, Sarah, was very helpful and efficient in all communications. Nothing could have been better.
Norwich itself is a lovely city – plenty of historic sites, shops and places just to wander around and be spoiled for choice for places to eat and places for coffee and cake. Whilst visiting the Norfolk coast and Broads really needs a car (although some do-able by bus), the Malthouse apartment is a straightforward 15 minute walk from the railway station so this would be a good travel choice if wanting a few days – or even a week – in Norwich itself.
T & B. August 2014 – A beautiful place, the nicest and cleanest we have stayed in, we hope to return soon. Thank you.
C & P. August 2014 – What a great time we’ve had. A wonderful apartment in a terrific city. Lovely friendly people! Plenty to see and do. Recommend Jamie Oliver’s in the Royal Arcade for great pasta and The Murderer’s for good ale. Will recommend the apartment to friends.
D & D. August 2014 – Thank you very much for your hospitality. You’ve got a lovely apartment and we have really enjoyed our stay. This is definitely a place we would recommend to family and friends.
C & P. August 2014 – We had a lovely time in Norwich. The flat was excellent. We will be recommending your flat to others. Many thanks…
L & D. July 2014 – We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Malt House. It is such a lovely apartment with all the comforts of home and close by to everything. Your hospitality and thoughtfulness made sure of a memorable experience.
C & R. July 2014 – We arrived after a seven and a half hour journey by car. The apartment was lovely and we have had a lovely time here. We enjoyed a trip up to Elm Hill today, to the antique quarters. Also good fabric shops. Owners really helpful, thank you. If we return to Norwich we would like to return to the apartment. Best Wishes.
A & A. July 2014 – We have had a lovely time and everything has been great. Travelled by train, so the location of the apartment is perfect and within walking distance of everything we needed. Enjoyed Norwich and all surrounding areas. We hope to return again. Thank you very much.
S & P. June 2014 – We have enjoyed our stay in your lovely, clean and modern apartment. Thank you for all the little extras and for your advice on places to visit in Norwich and other towns in Norfolk. We always book places to stay through large companies, but would definitely recommend your apartment to others, not only because of it is so very nice and in a great location for Norwich but also because of the way you were always so helpful throughout and friendly. Thanks again…
F & K. June 2014 – Just to let you know the apartment and Norwich has lived up to all our expectations and ‘more’. It has been our first time in Norfolk, but we are sure to return. Thanks…
J. June 2014 – Thanks for being so thoughtful, I’ve had a lovely few days here (a treat to myself) and have felt very safe. You can always tell when a rental place is also used by the owners, they are much more homely. Thanks again.
P & M. May 2014 – Thank you so much for letting us stay at 106 The Malt House, it was definitely a home from home experience. We had everything we needed which was great! Also we would like to say thank you for your advice on our one rainy day, it helped us still get a taster of Norwich, even though the weather was a nightmare! Norwich is so lovely, never realised how much character the town had! We will definitely recommend you to others as it is perfect for a little get away. Thanks again, we look forward to hopefully returning in the future!
P & B. May 2014 – Clean, bright, easy living. We enjoyed our stay, thank you.
D & L. May 2014 – Just wanted to say a big thanks for letting us stay at your lovely home this weekend. The apartment is fantastic and a real home from home. We have stayed in many places for short breaks and I can honestly say your ‘haven’ is right at the top of the list – peaceful and tranquil luxury whilst only a 5 minute walk from the city centre. Perfect. Thanks again – hope to be back.
J & I. May 2014 – A fabulous apartment, which I just cannot fault. A real home from home. Thank you for all the little extras, biscuits, milk, tea, coffee etc. Great location just a 10 minute walk to the city. Absolutely wonderful.
C & K. April 2014 – A Perfect Easter Break. A very clean and well equipped apartment. Much appreciated dishcloth, sponge and washing up liquid! A special thank you for the Chocolates, which did not last long once opened.
A & G. April 14 2014 – Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely apartment. Such a great place to come back to after walking into Norwich, can recommend The White Horse pub in Trowse for Sunday lunch, only 15 mins walk. Hope to be back soon…

J.P. Feb 14 – ‘A haven of tranquility’.
T & B. Feb 14- ‘Really lovely apartment, had a very comfortable stay here. really enjoyed being able to walk everywhere, many thanks’.
J & R. Feb 14- ‘Thank you for allowing us to share your home..
