Although the reviews were fairly mixed, we decided to try this hotel on the basis of location and convenience. Our main concern with B&Bs is that it is very much 'pot-luck' as to which room you get. The initial greeting was very good and all interactions with staff were also very good, as was the breakfast … good value for... More

Between 4 of us we had a room at the front of the building (very loud, road facing, single glazing, no shower) and another room that was basically in the loft! However this room was great. Nice and warm, shower (which was excellent) and toilet facilities. There was just no window in the main room. However, this didn't bother us... More

The Twin room we had was clean but smelt damp. ON investigation the cupboard for hanging your clothes in was in fact very damp the bathroom smelt of damp also. The shower was very poor no pressure it dribbled if you could get the temperature right that may of been a bonus.. The breakfast was Surprisingly good but £80.00 for... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in October due to Number 3 BnB closing down, it was OK but my room was right opposite of the main road so I woke up a lot during my sleep. The bed sheets were not good and were not comfortable, shower was okay... Brilliant reception service. Not for a holiday but a good place... More

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...
