The Griffin Hotel B&B Attleborough
Welcome to The Griffin Hotel, a historic coaching Inn located in the heart of East Anglia. Hospitality has been dispensed at The Griffin for the last 450 years.
For those of you interested in the history – The Griffin Attleborough doors opened for the first time in about 1560 during the early reign of Queen Elizabeth I, in the part of the building fronting Church Street. It was extended in the 17th and 18th centuries with a frontage onto the churchyard. The Griffin was designed as a coaching inn, one feature being wooden cobbles in the archway to muffle the horses hooves, so as not to disturb the guests sleeping upstairs! Although guests no longer normally arrive by coach and horses, the Griffin continues to provide for all the needs of a weary traveller –a warm welcome, reviving drinks in the bar, a hearty meal in the restaurant and a comfortable bed for the night.
The Griffin Hotel B&B remains at the heart of the community’s activities, providing everything from morning coffee and biscuits to fine àla carte meals. The facilities have been enhanced by the addition of a garden through the arch, in the lee of an ancient flint wall and with an overhanging chestnut tree. It is both a suntrap and a quiet haven in the center of the bustling town. The Griffin Hotel’s central location, good road and rail links and extensive local attractions make the Griffin the perfect destination for a short holiday break, a midweek business stopover or as a team base for racing and track days at Snetterton race circuit.

The Griffin Hotel Trailer Storage. Travelling over to Snetterton for either a track day or a race weekend?

Why not take the easy route and travel over the day before and enjoy an evening’s hospitality at the Griffin Hotel? And to make things as easy as possible for our guests, we’ve teamed up with our local partner, Breckland Storage, to offer secure overnight storage for your race trailer. Breckland Storage is a CaSSOA Gold standard site. The perimeter is completely enclosed with full height fencing and around the clock CCTV cameras.
