A Norfolk B&B was revealed today to be the headquarters of the new Brexit Party endorsed by Nigel Farage.
Annapurna Guesthouse, owned by Brexit Party founder Catherine Blaiklock, boasts a seasonal hot tub and is conveniently located just a short drive from Thorpe Business Park.
However the guesthouse has suffered a spate of poor reviews on TripAdvisor in recent days, apparently due to its connection to The Brexit Party.

One reviewer posted today: “Terrible hotel. Saw an advert on the side of a bus that promised a lot but when we got there it made Fyre Festival look like a 5* experience.
“Tried to get something to eat in the morning but some mental woman kept just saying breakfast means breakfast, so we gave up and went to Belgium and had a much nicer life surrounded by nice people.”
'Concerned' with bad reviews
Another reviewer, writing under the name of UKIP leader Gerard Batten, complained of an ‘obnoxious, loudmouthed old man who continually smoked and drank beer’.
The reviewer added: “During the evening whilst watching telly on a 1970s black and white TV the unsavoury guest would shout loudly at the TV that Brexit means Brexit and traitors will be hanged.
“Avoid at all cost, it really felt like going back to 1945 Britain.”
The manager of the Annapurna Guesthouse said he was not allowed to confirm whether Ms Blaiklock owned the guesthouse.
He did admit that the owner was involved with The Brexit Party, and said he was concerned about the resulting bad reviews left for the guesthouse.
“I would not do that, mix business and politics, but that is her decision,” he added.
Companies House lists Ms Blaiklock as director of Kamarina 2 Limited, headquartered at Annapurna Guesthouse. The nature of business is described as 'Other letting and operating of own or leased real estate'.
The Brexit Party, also listed on Companies House, has the same correspondence address.
Ms Blaiklock was approached for comment.
