I found this hotel OK, probably not quite up to the price for the area anymore. The room really looked like one that football fans use, which is to be expected, but I probably expected more for what I got.. It was more budget travel lodge than nearly 140 a night standard. The staff were attentive, and it's in a... More

The big thing to watch for is the cost for car parking. Norwich City must be saving up for a new player, or just a player, because they are charging for day parking not Holiday Inn! That said we got a place out in front that was free! Big saving! The hotel was excellent. I was warned off Holiday Inn... More

I stayed in this holiday inn from Saturday leaving Monday. The hotel wasn't bad overall -just certain elements. Saturday - arrived and placed in a disabled room.

Excellent hotel in which our room overlooked Norwich City Football pitch. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We only stayed one night so cannot comment on location for amenities, but it served our visit very well and would definitely return. The breakfast was very good and as we ate quite early there wasn't a rush... More

I was very impressed by this Holiday Inn, a chain I am not really fond of. Service was excellent throughout my stay, very natural and not OTT which you can get at a lot of hotels.

Stayed here for three nights. 20 minute walk into city centre in all honesty - a pleasant walk if you follow the river with a modern restaurant area only 10 minutes walk from hotel. Parking is not free and this is not clear on website. At weekends there is a stretch of road in front of the hotel where you... More

I arrived quite late, check in was slow but I think this may have been because of the trainee staff which were good. Good atmosphere in the evening.

This is a standard hotel with little elegance (£100 per room). You know what to expect & will receive it. Room was large & overlooked the football pitch - thankfully it was empty.
