Stayed here a few times. Perfect city centre location with bars, restaurants, cinema etc all walkable. Best premier inn I've stayed in. Situated on the river, great bar and restaurant on site , staff very helpful, child friendly and free car park - arrive and park early to go shopping before check in ;-)

We booked this hotel for a short Bank Holiday break in Norwich, and weren't disappointed. The location is ideal for a short city break, and is within walking distance of many great restaurants, bars and shops. Upon arrival, we found ample free parking in the complex, and were greeted by very friendly and helpful reception staff. They were eager to... More

We found it easily, and were overwhelmed by the friendly and helpful staff and the comfort... More

As a regular Premier Inn user, this one gets an overall 'OK' only because it suffers from large-hotel syndrome. All standards are fastidiously applied as usual but my, unprecedented, disappointment stems from a lack of, then ill-informed/untrained Reception team, unsure of room availability and procedure; all very tiresome and time-consuming when, after a long journey, you just want a shower...

This Premier Inn is easy to find. With a large, private car park for guests, all facilities are good. Cheerful, welcoming and helpful staff at all times. No fuss, quiet rooms here, ensure a good night's sleep. The restaurant is well run, efficient with a good selection and choice. Prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere completely relaxing. We've found... More

We had a University reunuion. The hotel had great rooms easy central parking a good retaurant pleasant seating areas including a really nice verandah adjacent to the river. The staff should be used by Premier to train the staff in their other hotels. They were excellent!
