The Maids Head Hotel offers Suites, Four Poster rooms, Feature Rooms, Executive and Standard rooms, as well as rooms ideal for family stays. There are contemporary rooms and traditionally decorated bedrooms with individual charm and character. The bedrooms are furnished in a warm welcoming style and offer a comfortable and well-equipped retreat at the end of the day. There is free WiFi access in the hotel.

The character rooms are not only beautifully decorated but have been host to influential characters such as Queen Elizabeth I, The Black Prince, Catherine of Aragon, and are visited by popular present day celebrities and musicians.

The Queen Elizabeth Suite is rumoured to have been Queen Elizabeth I bedroom when she visited the city in 1587. The Cathedral Suite with views of Norwich Cathedral has a separate lounge complete with dining area. The Ranworth Suite has a luxurious king size contemporary four-poster bed. The Paston Suite has an oriental antique carved four-poster bed, with a relaxing seating area overlooking the Tombland area of the city.

The WinePress @ Wensum at the Maids Head, like the rest of the hotel, exudes historical charm and offers an informal dining experience. The menu at the WinePress @ Wensum is overseen by Daniel Galmiche, a Michelin starred chef, who worked in conjunction with the head chef at the hotel to create inspired, delicious unstuffy food, served in a relaxed atmosphere. Wine features heavily and there are 40 wines available by the glass, which have been handpicked.

Adjoining the restaurant is the Maids Head Bar, Norwich's oldest serving bar. Sample fine wines, local beer and light meals in this cosy snug Jacobean bar that exudes character. For something more contemporary, there is The Yard Bar, offering a Norfolk Tapas bar menu, quirky cocktails and fine wines. Light meals or afternoon tea can be enjoyed in the lounge.

There are 6 well-equipped air-conditioned meeting rooms with a maximum capacity of 180 delegates. Themed private dinners in this historical venue can also be arranged.

The city of Norwich skyline is highlighted by two cathedrals, a Norman castle, medieval churches, the grandeur of Victorian architecture, an Art Deco City Hall and the 21st century landmark - The Forum.

The hotel is also a perfect base to explore the many attractions in the surrounding area including the Norfolk Broads, a network of rivers and open water for boating, outstanding scenery and spectacular wildlife. Nearby is Sandringham, the country retreat of Her Majesty the Queen, the most famous stately home in Norfolk - and certainly one of the most beautiful.
