Welcome to Maids Head Hotel

The Maids Head Hotel is known to be the oldest hotel in the UK, dating back over 800 years. Perfectly located in Tombland, in the heart of Tudor Norwich, this independent 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. Providing excellent service, the hotel is an ideal place to stay when visiting Norwich or touring Norfolk.

Over the past five years, the Maids Head Hotel has embarked on a multi-million pound investment with our guests at the heart of every decision made, this currently has included our bedrooms and all public areas.

Step back in time and sample a local beer, wine, Gin or even Vodka in our Jacobean bar, a beautiful oak lined bar and delightful Snug which is believed to be one of the oldest bars in the area, or kick back and relax in one of our contemporary lounges. Alternatively, indulge in a treatment offered by our onsite beauty salon, Best Beauty or visit our nearby Nuffield Heath Fitness and Wellbeing Gym.

Our 2 AA Rosette restaurant, the WinePress, will delight you with mouthwatering dishes using seasonal produce sourced from local producers, combined with our extensive list of over 45 wines, all available by the glass.

Visit the Hotel which features in CJ Sansom’s latest novel, Tombland, which again features his Lawyer, Matthew Shardlake, who “stays” at the Maids Head during his investigations at the time of Kett’s Rebellion and fully embrace the Fine City of Norwich.

Complimentary car parking available for all guests.
