A new Maids Head Experience

Welcome to Maids Head Hotel

The award winning Maids Head Hotel is known to be the oldest hotel in the UK, dating back over 800 years. Perfectly located in the centre of Norwich with its own large car park, this independent, AA 4 Star Silver Hotel, boasts charm and an abundance of character. Walk through its doors and embrace the welcoming splendour of a traditional and historical hotel which today boasts contemporary elegance.

Over the past eight years, the Maids Head Hotel has embarked on a multi-million pound investment with our guests at the heart of every decision made. We are also investing in providing our guests with unique experiences, from a spin around the City in one of our vintage Bentleys, to hiring one of our Bobbin Bikes to explore the surrounding area or, new for August 2021, to enjoy a cruise along the river in our delightful Frolic 31 river boat, the Tiffany Rose. To find out more about these experiences contact [email protected] .

In March 2019 the Maids Head proudly won both Best Independent Hotel and Investing in the Future at the EDP Norfolk and Suffolk Tourism Awards.

Our 2 AA Rosette restaurant, the WinePress, will delight you with mouthwatering dishes using seasonal produce sourced from local producers, combined with our extensive wine list.
