Basic accommodation on the UEA campus, I have nothing much to say about this place we only stayed here because my wife was working at the uni for one day. It has that usual smell of a cheap travel lodge type of place and the hurendous noise from the relentless air con units on the roof, who knows why any... More

Beds are comfy and if you are having breakfast, served a short walk away then that is brilliant too. Only slight improvement possible would be in our room the extractor in... More

The accommodation consists of somewhat upgraded dorm rooms, well equipped, but small none the less. The main impact of such compactness is a narrow single bed, an undersized closet, and just four or five square feet of open shower space demarcated by a wraparound curtain. But the desk was a good size, and much appreciated extras included coffee facilities, iron,... More

Overall not a bad accommodation. The rooms are small and are essentially dorm rooms converted to B&B rooms. bathrooms are decent, clean with open shower. Otherwise they make sure you have everything you need, its a very convenient location. Breakfast was good.
