We ended up at the Central Hotel due to Number 3 B&B closing down; our reason for staying was we had a wedding to attend locally and needed somewhere to get changed and stay for the night. We wouldn't be spending a great deal of time in the hotel so weren't overly concerned about its simplicity. The hotel itself is... More

Really warm welcome on reception, hotel located in a prime position in the heart of Norwich city centre just a few minutes walk from everything. Parking simple at £5 in the road adjacent to the hotel. Free wifi a bonus on business travel. Room well sized and clean, bed comfortable and facilities fair. Sadly the hotel is really noisy. I'm...

Had a single room,overlooking the river, excellent value for money, clean room and perfect for what I needed. Comfy bed, perfect bathroom, good shower all the things I think can make or break a...

Stay away from the annex! You will not get a good nights sleep. The walls are thin and you can hear every foot step from upstairs. Clean and comfortable but this room will hurt the hotels ratings. The room door didn't make me feel very safe and secure either as it led straight into a dirty concerte area straight onto... More

Had 1 night at this b&b for a night out in Norwich. Very good location, 2 or 3 minute walk to the train station, short walk into the city for shopping and nights out. And it's 5 minute walk over to riverside. Small rooms but clean, comfortable, with ensuite facilities. Staff friendly, nice welcome. For an extra fiver per person... More

we stayed in the annexe, which was nice and clean, except the boys next door smoked at the main door, and they were quite noisy, and knocked on our door, luckily their voices were heard mainly from the bathroom. i used the ear plugs (from the plane) as it was a busy main road. breakfast was great and warmhearted.
