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

When we checked in at main reception we were feeling relaxed and looking forward to our stay...however this soon changed as we were led out of the building and down the road to what looked like a run down student hostel. The stairs are narrow and steep and the rooms seem to be crammed in to a very tiny building.... More

The hotel is in a great location just a few minutes from the train station. The staff were friendly and the bed was comfy. Cheap as chips too working out at £30 a man. Only negative is I was woken up at 5am by the noisy lads upstairs but this is not the fault of the hotel. It's the fault... More

I've just stayed at Central Hotel for 18 nights, while work was being done on my flat, and highly recommend this establishment. The management and all staff are extremely professional and attentive. The whole operation displays traits that one would expect from a far more expensive hotel. The rooms are exceptionally clean, modern, well appointed and there were no noise... More

We spent one night in a very quiet room at the back of the hotel on a weekend visit to the city. The room was clean with a comfortable bed, good tea and coffee making facilities with the bonus of biscuits, and a large powerful walk in shower. The staff were friendly and exceptionally helpful. We would stay here again... More

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
