Stayed one night, had to climb over the bed to close the curtains. Tatty broken lampshade. Damaged carpets everywhere fraying at the edges, walls in desperate need of a lick of paint. When I finally got to my room walking through various corridors, a door at the end next to my room wide open. Greeted by a loo standing outside... More

Very acceptable for a short stay. Quiet yet convenient location within walking distance of city centre. We ate late and at short notice on a Sunday night yet the service and quality of food were excellent.

This was our base for a weekend break in Norwich. The staff who greeted us were friendly, helpful and informative. Before heading out for shopping in the centre (a 15 minute walk away) we decided to have a lunchtime bar snack. What arrived was one of the best steak sandwiches I have had in a very long time - not... More

I would concur with several previous reviewers - this hotel is saved by its staff. The room I was allocated for a 4 night stay (112) was small and overlooked the large gravel car park - with single glazed windows, the noise of cars and taxis kept me awake until the early hours. Getting up the next morning, the shower... More

The staff are always cheery and helpful, and I like the fact that this hotel isn't a conventional corporate beige experience. It is the quirks and foibles of a a 'hotel with personality' that means I go back each and every week.

Stayed overnight en-route to a family gathering. Saw it as a good opportunity to visit Norwich. The hotel is set back off the main road with a good sized car park. Very welcoming staff, they were all fantastic throughout our stay. The hotel is beginning to look in need of a bit of an overhaul but everything was clean and... More

Delightful place for lunch with my mum, has to be the best value around - we had two courses for £10 a Greek Salad lovely fresh feta, quality olives followed by grilled salmon cooked to perfection all served by a wonderful waitress where nothing was too much trouble, we love table service but were prepared to have to go and...

I stayed here on business and to be honest the decor and rooms are dated to the point of comedy. The carpets in the never-ending corridors are old and my room had mould in the bathroom. The room was small (not a problem in itself) and clean but details like the paint, bathroom fittings and wardrobe let it down. The... More

Old-fashioned, yes, but shabby chic rather than shabby. Lovely room and great bathroom - not pokey like some chains. Staff were all polite and helpful and we were warned about a disco that night - we could hear it but it wasn't intrusive (perhaps it depends on your room.) We also loved the setting - just out of the city... More
