We stayed for our son's graduation at UEA. The hotel location was excellent - right next to the river and convenient to walk into Norwich. The rooms are comfortable & with breakfast included, represented good value. Advance check in is a good idea, so that entry & exit were trouble free.

We all know that Premier Inn's are nothing fancy, but they are a bit like easyjet.....affordable accommodation where you know what you're getting and it delivers pretty well. Their hotels tend to be around the 3 star mark and this one by riverside in Norwich is no different. My room had a comfortable king size (I think) bed and also... More

Good location and good value for money. Very near train station but also not far from the centre of Norwich. Friendly and helpful staff - happy to answer questions and assist. Rooms were very clean and a good size.

Lovely clean room with fresh, comfortable beds - just what we needed after a long busy day at a festival and long drive. Shame breakfast wasn't included for both of my under 16s. Will be booking again next year when visiting festival again.

Being an avid traveller and staying in Premier Inn hotels on a number of occasions, we decided to try the one in the Nelson Centre in Norwich. If you are disabled please avoid this hotel. On arrival we we're given a room with a roll in shower at my wife's request. It would appear that the disabled rooms are at... More
