We saw the room and left. We could not stay here. The room was damp, small and horrible. The room was in poor repair. The man on reception did not seem surprised. We went to another B and B for £10 more, but it was well worth it.

This was a last minute booking with limited time...but lesson learned for sure!! I chose the hotel purely on location (arriving after 9.30pm) so being 2 mins walk from the train was perfect. However everything else failed to convince me ever to return....if I'd arrived earlier in the day I'd have checked out and found somewhere else - I've done... More

We started our 1 night stay well when the friendly owner let us us check in 30 mins before the usual 12.00 pm time. The door displayed a 5 out of 5 food cleanliness rating so everything seemed positive However when we got to our room there was a discarded shower curtain on the bed and some damp towels. The...

Wasn't even there 5 minutes. The guy was rude, argumentative and swore at us. we walked out - the place is a joke! We called the guy a number of times before our stay to confirm our booking and details. we thought it would be fine. We booked 2 rooms on the basis that it worked out £15 per person,... More

So we only got to the 'reception'... We were not expecting a Marriotts just somewhere cheap and clean to sleep after a night out. There's so much I could say and we didn't even have the pleasure of viewing the rooms. Upon arriving in a beautiful dark, dingy, dirty and particularly smelly reception, we all put our pennies together to... More

The Station Hotel Norwich – The place is absolutely disgusting – not sure where to start – but here goes - Bare electrical wiring on the bathroom ceiling where the pull cord had been removed & replaced by a conventional light switch on the wall (is that legal?). Bathroom door would not stay closed (best you could get is 6... More

Arrived at the hotel about 10pm on 14/8/14 Check in was quick. Was given a single room (9) on the ground floor. Room was basic but I expected that. I wasn't looking for luxury. Bathroom was small. Had trouble getting the shower to give hot water so went to reception. Got it working in the end but shower needed to... More

The first thing I noticed was the smell and the second was the grubby, worn carpet and general air of neglect. A narrow staircase led to the room with its cracked and missing tiles, view of the dustbins and continuing smell. Tried the bed briefly - the floor would have been as comfortable if it had been clean. Decided I... More
