Usual Premier Inn quality.Located near to the railway station with bus stops outside the hotel.Norwich City F.C. ground at Carrow Road is quite close.The public house/restaurant adjoining the hotel serves a good breakfast.The hotel is next to the river Wensum with easy access to the riverside walk

I had a recent stay at the Premier Inn Nelson near the City centre and I would definitly recommend it,you could walk into the centre very easily and down by the river right up to the Cathedral. Norwich is a lovely City and well worth a visit! :)

We always stay in Premier Inns - even instead of a hotel because the beds and pillows are ALWAYS comfortable. We booked three nights earlier in the week on an impromptu break to take advantage of the weather and arrived to find that the rooms have air conditioning.... What a boon! We enjoyed so much we booked a further two... More

This is the best of the two Premier inns in Norwich. Clean, modern rooms and on an hot weekend, air conditioning unlike my visit to the Duke St Premier Inn. A good quality clean modern room, flat screen TV, air conditioning/ climate control and a modern bathroom. The walls were a bit thin and I had some noise from the... More

I stayed here in June 2015 and the hotel is of a good standard, it was clean and tidy and good value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location is great for the city Overall a very good hotel for the price

Rooms basic but sufficient. Food was very poor. Evidently just microwaved. Tasteless or smothered in salt. Service OK but a bit slack. Which is a shame as when it was just The Nelson, it was a lovely place to eat, drink and stay. Won't be returning.

Stayed here for 2 nights, and was suprised that we got such a good price for a City centre hotel. Nothing but praise for the staff who were all friendly and efficient. The room was up to Premiers normal standards, ie very clean, spacious and comfortable. Bathroom was top notch too. Really good well cooked breakfast. An excellent location, near... More

Building not pretty (better looking out of than at). Only minor... More

as the company promises, we got a good nights sleep at this hotel. Soft and comfy beds, but the room needed a bit more cleaning - some biscuit crumbs left behind by previous occupant - even though we checked in at 630pm. Good bar for a drink - had one before we headed out. Breakfast was very good, get a... More
