So difficult to know how to rate my experience but after much soul searching I've decided to go for Average, I was let down by the SugarBeat giving me an uninhabitable room so there I was, stuck in Norwich and nowhere to stay. The Holiday Inn and Premier Inn were charging comedy prices, then I found the Central Hotel. The... More

Stayed here with a couple of friends for 2 nights. We had a twin and a single in the annexe. Had a pleasant stay here: staff and the Manager were helpful and friendly. Breakfast (choice of continental or cooked) was good value. Location: very close to the railway station and I guess a 10 or so minute walk to the... More

Living about 30 miles from Norwich and not fancying a pricey taxi ride home after a rare night out I thought I'd find myself a budget hotel. Central Hotel is close to the train station and a vast array of nightlife is easily accessible on foot. Expecting just a very basic 'bed for the night' this place exceeded my expectations... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend as we were in Norwich to see family. Could find no faults. Staff were friendly, room was clean and tidy. Nice bars and restaurants nearby. Will stay again when we visit again.

This hotel is close to the railway station and handy for central Norwich. However, the Trip Advisor should state there is NO CAR PARK. We booked, but as we had noweher to park, we could not stay. The hotel may well be excelent in all other respects, but in a city short of parking, this should be pointed out clearly

Friendly, clean, quiet in a great location. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again. The rooms were spacious, great wifi and the bathroom clean and again very spacious. The host was very pleasant and accommodating. Parking g was not a problem at all and we walked along the river to dinner.

I stayed at the B and B at the beginning of March 2015 for an interview. Normally, I don't bother writing reviews but I feel that I should make the effort to say thank you for the lovely stay. I was offered a hot drink as soon as I came in and was shown around. I was able to access... More

The best thing about this hotel is that dogs are allowed free of charge, whereas other places I've stayed at tend to charge a minimum of £5 per night, or even up to £20! So, I booked a room for me and my partner this weekend, and requested a "dog-friendly" room, and we were given a room on the ground... More

If you're the sort of person who'd rather spend money outside of your hotel, when on holiday, this place is ideal. As a solo, female traveller on a budget, it ticks almost every box. I felt comfortable, safe and welcome and had everything I needed. For £35 a night, in Norwich city centre, I'd say that's pretty impressive! Any issues... More
