Lovely Flat in the perfect location for exploring Norwich.

Jane May, 24th of November 2023

The apartment is in a great location and is a beautiful place.

The Taylor's, 5th of December 2022

At Cathedral Loft we liked the central City location. We have re-booked later on in the year for a return visit

Nick , 6th of March 2020

What can we say except “wow”? Apartment was just stunning. Incredible value for a beautiful, stylish and central space. Everything about the apartment was well cared-for and beautifully presented. If we had chosen a hotel that was anywhere near as lovely we would have paid a fortune. The flat is so spacious and classy, spotless and full of surprises- we loved the huge roof terrace with views across Norwich! The amenities were fabulous, lots of cooking utensils, brand new kitchen appliances, fluffy towels, wonderfully soft bedclothes. We were on tour singing in the cathedral for the weekend and our foursome really were the envy of everyone else in our tour party! It was so convenient for the cathedral and right in the middle of town. The only thing to be aware of is the nearby clubs on the same street, but the double-glazing takes care of most of the noise and it didn’t disturb us. Thank you so much for having us - we will recommend you to everyone!

“We stayed over a weekend and The Loft was incredibly comfortable, stylish and homely, the location is perfect for shoppers or people that want to party.”

Ollie, 18th of February 2019

It is the perfect location and property for any event. Minutes away from everything you need or want to do. Would highly recommend, will be coming back in the warmer months.

Nathan, 8th of February 2019

A beautifully finished apartment in a great location - so handy for the city centre, food, nightlife and shopping. The apartment has been done out to a very high standard, with apparently no expense spared! Everything was scrupulously clean and the welcoming touches of milk in the fridge etc were appreciated. Can't find a thing to fault - and will most surely be looking to stay there again when we return to Norwich!!

Cathedral loft is a cozy and stylish place in the centre of Norwich. We enjoyed every moment of our stay, the apartment is great and very comfortable, close to pubs and restaurants as well as the fantastic Cathedral of course! Highly recommended!

Giovanna, 21st of October 2018

A stunning apartment in the centre of Norwich city. Easy walking distance to all of the shops, bars, restaurants and tourist attractions. Clean, modern, well laid-out and with some lovely touches (I.e., real flame fire centrepiece, huge kitchen-diner, and beautifully tasteful decor throughout the entire apartment. Incredibly comfortable beds which gave us the best nights’ sleep ever. The roof terrace is amazing, with lovely views across the city and of the cathedral. There are some basics included on arrival, tea, coffee, milk, wine and beer in the cooler, which is really helpful if you’ve had a long journey or a late arrival. We were going to book the Premier Inn, but so so glad that we didn’t and booked this apartment instead. We stayed for 2 nights. We ate out at a local restaurant on the first night. But the second night we decided to stay in the apartment and cook. It was so relaxing and comfortable. Absolutely everything you need to cook and dine in comfort. We wish we’d stayed in on both nights. Loved this place and were sorry to leave. But we’ll DEFINITELY return, and recommend to family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Norwich.
