We stayed here for one nightas a base to explore Norwich. The staff were extremely polite,helpful and very coutious. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and the view out the window (over the river) was just perfect

Having just had a poor hotel experience in Norwich and having moved to the Premier Nelson I was especially delighted by the front of house staff who were knowledgable and extremely capable. I was originally in room 124 but then moved to 143. A great room overlooking the garden and really quiet. As usual the room was well furnished, well... More

The hotel is only a few steps from the station: great for the rail traveller. The location by the river is also pleasant. But it's an unlovely (short) walk to the city centre, past kebab shops, student bars, etc: all a bit messy after a Saturday night's revels. However the hotel's food, although not "gourmet", was better than expected, the... More

I've stayed twice now and well pleased. Beds are comfortable, nice sheets and the rooms are clean. The staff has also been very polite and accommodating. Do take a little care when turning on the shower though. As the head doesn't move much you may get a blast of cold water for a moment if you are standing under it.... More

Clean, immediate, impressive bed+pillow. The Premier Inn and its car park entrance were easy to spot. Check-in was swift and simple. The bedroom and bathroom were surprisingly large and as clean as a whistle with a shower that proved jolly good. Many of us in our group shared a positive word about the comfortable bed, and I was over the... More

First time staying in a Premier Inn and I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was in a lovely setting beside the river and close to the city centre in Norwich. The room was of a good standard and the bed really comfy. Several eateries and the train station nearby.

This Premier Inn offers a no-frills but a comfortable place to stay, within a few hundred metres of Norwich Station and a slightly longer walking distance to the city centre. Our room had a few shortcomings, such as the lack of cupboards and drawers, bathroom shelf space and a very high fixed shower head; but the bed was pretty comfortable,... More

My partner and I stayed at the Premier Inn Norwich Nelson City Centre for the long Easter weekend 2014. The reception staff were particularly friendly and helpful. They showed us to our Room (34) which was far from the reception in this large hotel. The ground floor room was beautiful with a very comfy high King-sized bed, a writing desk,... More
