If you want to visit central Norwich this may not be the absolute best location but it's great value and definitely walking distance. You can walk all the way up Prince of Wales Road but cutting through St Faiths Lane brings you to the back of the Cathedral and is a nicer walk. Train station is immediately opposite. My room...

My son is at UEA and I need to book overnight accommodation for myself when visiting/collecting/returning him to Norwich. On previous occasions I have always stayed at the Travelodge at Cringleford which is pleasant enough as all I require is a bed for the night, but this time I chose the Premier Inn having secured a room at a similar...

This Norwich Premier Inn is across the road from the train station. It is also within the same building as a restaurant and Costa Coffee. There are several local mini-supermarkets less than 1 minutes walk away. Within 3 minutes walk there is a large leisure area that includes an Odeon cinema, a bowling alley and at least half a dozen... More

Very comfortable room, usual Premier Inn services, pillow choices, tidy room and clean, AV and USB points to connect and charge gadgets. Very polite staff who have been trained in customer service. 'Quiet time' really works, a very peaceful nights sleep, important! The attached Nelson restaurant was pretty good, standard menu for dinner, breakfast was good with the ability to... More

I stay here regularly and used to before Premier Inn took it over. The hotel is on the river and 2 minutes walk from the station, really convenient. Walking to the City centre and shops takes 10-15 minutes mostly uphill so be prepared. The bar is enormous with lots of different places to sit rather than one big room and... More

Excellent location, very close to the train station and only a few minutes walk from the shops and bars of Norwich. From the outside it looks a little shabby but the room was clean and comfortable. We had a room on the river side of the hotel which was quiet. The staff, especially those on reception, were extremely welcoming and... More

Good hotel. Very comfortable and good location for Norwich shops. Every we needed in the room. Would definitely return. Little bit noisy in the morning because we were on ground floor next to car park, would ask for a room away from it next time.

We have stayed in this hotel many times; in fact we used to stay there before it became a Premier Inn. When Premier Inn first took over the Nelson, they renovated it and it became one of the best of this brand; sadly, it is now getting tired. Great location in the middle of Norwich on the banks of the... More

Excellent three night stay... all the staff were brilliant and the rooms clean and comfortable apart from the bed, which had a very firm mattress so we slept on top of the duvet! The Premier Breakfast was good value for money and the dinner menu, although limited, was well cooked and also good value for money.
