We booked a two night stay here and had a lovely view of the river on the ground floor. Room was clean and had enough beds for 4 of us. Breakfast was ok , not the best I've had but it is a Premier Inn so don't expect a 5 star breakfast. We were very disappointed after leaving our room... More

Paid £25 for a night in a comfy, clean room overlooking the river (which I requested on check-in). Travelled by train and it's a great location for the station. However, Prince of Wales Road is, er, lively/grotty, depending on your perspective, so be prepared to see a few drunks on the walk in and back from town if you take... More

Stayed in this hotel a few times and we always have a comfortable stay, rooms are clean and ticks all the boxes, ideal location for all the nightlife norwich has to offer. Family room overlooked the river and bars but did not hear any noise all night.

Have stayed here many times & never been disappointed. The hotel is clean, the staff cheerful & helpful & a handy free car park for a short walk into central Norwich. On this visit we found the sink blocked but were moved without fuss into a larger room. Our cups of tea were even taken for us into the new... More

We have a business account with Premier Inn so have visited countless of their hotels up and down the country and this was by far the worst one I have experienced. The guests were noisy in their rooms, shouting in the passageways knocking on doors etc. I mentioned this to the reception when booking out and to be fare to... More

Great place to stay for a great night out in Norwich, location is excellent for those travelling by train, 2 minute walk from the moment you step of the train. The bar was very modern and Also in a great location for the surrounding bars and clubs. And the breakfast was very good

After visiting family a group of us decided to go out in norwich, in advance I booked a room in The Nelson. The room was adequate and spacious with basic appliances. An ideal location for restaurants/pubs/clubs etc. For the price it's recommended for a comfy stay!

Location in Norwich city centre was ideal. Staff friendly and room seemed bigger to other Premier Inn's I have stayed at. Pillow choice was very good, certainly much better than another hotel ( higher class hotel ) I stayed at a few days later. All round good value for money.
