The hotel is large and very clean, good sized rooms (well mine was anyway) and free parking which is quite well sign-posted near the hotel. Nothing to do with the hotel of course, just be aware of an awkward bridge junction. Although you will see the hotel from the 'front', on the river, the entrance is actually around the 'back'....

Great room, good night´s kip, good plasma TV, good central location, good parking facilities, wifi, restaurant.... etc. The only problem I found with the bath was that there were no handling bars to hold on to whilst coming out, so I found I had to be extremely careful. If I compare this hotel to other budget hotels, the difference would... More

Great central location and friendly staff, they were always on site if you needed them, plus the breakfast was nice too. One big let down was the wifi, which if you're not near the hub it's very weak.

Clean interior. Room and bathroom spotless. Breakfast really good. Staff polite and friendly. Close to train station and a short walk to city centre. Good choice for a weekend shopping in Norwich. Quiet rooms with good black out curtains air con and fan in room if needed.

Had a great 4 night stay here last week. The room was clean, it had everything we need and we found it was lovely and quiet on an evening (Saturday brought in a few noisy customers - but to be expected). We were in room 16, it had the new double glazing windows which may have been the reason the... More

Stayed one night whilst visiting adventure parks nearby. Very comfortable rooms with lovely beds. Staff on reception were very friendly and helpful in changing our rooms to be near each other. Did not eat dinner in hotel as lots of restaurants nearby but had breakfast there which was excellent. Everything you could possibly want. Hotel is very central for the... More

Just outside the Norwich Train Station - 3 minutes walk across the Bridge is this nice Hotel ideally suited for Business Travelers. I always travelled from Central London to Norwich for Business Meetings during 2005 to 2010 and found this Hotel to be just perfect for everything that I would need. An early check-in request was mostly honored.

This is one of the best Premier Inns we have been in. very modern building, located in the city centre with free parking and next to the river Wensum. If you don't want to eat at Table Table, there are loads of other restaurants nearby.

This was my second visit here and almost everything was good. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the rooms well equipped. The Lenny Henry advert isn't just hype. The beds are superb and I slept really well on both nights of my stay. My only gripe is the wifi. Last year there was free wifi for a limited time.... More
