Had booked 2 single rooms in the Annexe for 3 nights through Booking.com, when we arrived at the hotel were told one room was in main hotel and the other in the annexe. We were very unhappy about this and they explained that booking.com put the booking through as 2 separate bookings so they were unaware it was 2 people... More

Stayed at the weekend for 2 nights as I was visiting for my birthday - all the staff are very helpful & friendly. Room was spacious and clean. Hotel was close to all amenities with city centre just a short walk and riverside complex across the road. Although the hotel is close to main roads, this did not affect our... More

The Central Hotel is not central to Norwich - though it is handy for the railway station. It's a bit of a hike uphill into town, but there are plenty of pubs and eateries nearby (though we were told by a local that the area can become a trouble spot on weekend nights.) The guy on the desk offered us... More

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

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
