4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here after an evening at the football, basic hotel with basic rooms, very clean and tidy with comfortable beds. breakfast ok. ground floor room, but no noise experienced from outside. all in all a good stopover hotel for this type of visit.

A nice little b&b - clean, quite, basic. if this is what you are looking for - it's good value for money. Make sure you ask for an en-suit. As long as you don't expect anything flashy or pampering... Does the job if you need a place to put your head!

The staff were so friendly and I immediately felt at home. Great facilities (including good wifi) and i had a nice full English breakfast in the morning for a... More

Stayed during a trip to watch the football. I normally opt for chain hotels, but they were fairly expensive in the centre of town, so choose the Central Hotel. Couldn't fault it for a hotel in this price range and enjoyed our stay. Great location for the town and a short walk to Carrow Road. It's also a two minute... More

We stayed here for one night, having chosen it for its location, just a couple of minutes' walk from the station. Our room was clean and comfortable, with a small, but modern en-suite. The road outside is busy and therefore a bit noisy, but I presume the traffic died down late in the evening, because I slept very well! The... More

My hubby & I visit Norwich most years for the Beer Festival & have stayed in a variety of accommodation in walking distance of the city centre. The hotel was well appointed, being in reasonable walking distance of city centre & station. However, we took the car! Although we saw from reviews we read afterwards( silly us!) that parking wasn't... More

I stayed here for one night with my partner before the Norwich half marathon and it was in a very good location. We had a good nights sleep here and enjoyed our cooked breakfast in the morning. I liked the choice of flavoured teas available. We were disappointed to not have a hair dryer available in our room for after... More

Stayed here recently with a friend for one night in a room overlooking the river, nice view but spoilt due to the noisy and busy main road. Thank goodness it was only one night. Had the most awful sleep ever mainly because the mattress was completely knackered and I had springs in my back all night and backache the next... More

Dear Odieboo Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. As said to you in your numerous email you sent us, we have investigated on this matter. I did take your advice to sleep on that mattress for some night, as said to you we did not have any complaint with that bed before yours, and I did... More
