My wife and I spent the weekend at this hotel in Norwich. It has a number of very good points. The staff are all very helpful and friendly, the breakfast is excellent, it has plenty of parking and it is very close to town. The downside is that the hotel is in serious need of a major overhaul. As I... More

I would not put my dog in there. Bathroom is dirty, smells of damp and as said very out dated and not worth the price I payed £108.when I was in the room i got a way-cup call at 4 in the morning due to contractors banging doors.no shower just a dirty bath.

Not particularly comfortable carpet worn in the room and the bath panel had come off dated decor luckily I hadn't got to spend much time in the room as I was only using it to stay when going to a friends birthday party not at all what the booking website had led us to believe will not rush back

Sadly neglected building both out and in. Pubic hairs and scum in the bath, so we wore our rubber thongs while showering! Our friends were too afraid to venture into the shower and felt much the cleaner for that decision. The people were nice and I hope they are appreciated by the hotel management. Even a good scrub of the... More

We booked this hotel through a supposedly reputable online booking site. The reality bore no relation to what we had been led to expect. The whole place is tired and looks as if it needs freshening up, however, what it actually needs a good deep clean, replastering, replacement of cracked tiling,rotten woodwork, broken window fastenings, replumbing, worn and stained carpeting,...

I am a "glass half full" girl so I will start with the positives. The reception staff were friendly and the sheets and towels were clean. The decor throughout the reception and stairways was shabby and the stairs needed a hoover. We had a twin room which I think may have been used by a very rowdy stag party. There... More

I travel quite a lot for business and pleasure and I can comfortably say this is the worst place I have ever had the misfortune to stay. I arrived late and the night porter was incredibly rude. Fine. It's late...i can accept that but it went steadily downhill from there...Didn't point me even in the vaguest direction on where to... More

I don't like giving bad reviews but I have to share my night here in the hope it makes improvements. I walked in to the reception area and straightaway it was like stepping back in to the early 80's. The receptionist was pleasant and helpful but the appearance and decor is very very dated. My single room was seriously in... More

The room was quite big for a single, but smelling of smoke with shabby decor. It was clean but with stains on the carpet and old fashioned worn bathroom fixtures. People in adjacent rooms could clearly be heard talking. Though not a complete disaster, I would not recommend this. I'm sure better value for money could be found in Norwich.
