On a business trip I needed accommodation and not wanting to put up with the boredom of a cheap chain hotel I found the Central Hotel. The hotel is in a great location for the train station and a stroll into the city centre can be accomplished by following the river. The room was basic, comfortable and clean with a... More

This is a great hotel, I stayed in a double room, very comfortable, with free wifi. The gentleman at the desk was very helpful and the lovely lady at breakfast was very efficient and friendly. The breakfast is one of the best I've had in a long time. Well-seasoned and tasty produce. I don't mind noise from the road so... More

Great location in a lovely spot by the river. The breakfast room as well as our room have lovely view over the river but this also has a downside which is the noise from traffic on the busy road with cars passing by all night long. Our room had lovely bright decor in red and white which immediately appealed to... More

Booked into here for a friends stag do, it was the only hotel left at a reasonable price after radio 1's big weekend was announced. On arrival at the hotel I was greeted by a friendly gentleman who checked me in, this is when something unusual happened, I was told I was in the annex, and he took me down... More

I needed a last-minute place to stay in Norwich, and, due to Radio One's Big Weekend everywhere else was fully booked or charging exorbitant prices. Luckily a room became available at Central Hotel at their normal rates, and I feel very lucky to have ended up here. As a solo female traveller it couldn't have been better. The staff are... More

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.
