We stayed there for my wife's birthday as we wanted to go to the Theatre Royal and we booked a spar treatment in advance for the next day. The hotel is situated in the countryside on the edge of Norwich but within 300m of a park and ride car park (so you can walk and ride on a nice day) which takes you into the city centre in 15 minutes. The reception, rooms and health club are typical modern Marriott standard so no surprises or complaints there but the old part of the hotel which houses the restaurant and bar is delightful, especially in the winter when they light the log fires. As it is a golf hotel the grounds are spacious which sadly is not the case for lounges (which are more a series of corridors) but as we were only there for three nights that wasn't really an issue. The staff were superb and the massage in the spar was one of the best I've had. We chose to eat in the main restaurant on the first and last nights and the quality of the meals was excellent. We had a look at the golf club restaurant but while it is probably great in the summer when you can eat on the terrace, in winter it has a cold, clinical atmosphere more akin to an ageing cafe than a serious dinner option. The bar and mini-bar prices are typical upmarket chain but there is a Tesco superstore next to the park and ride if you need snacks for kids etc. The hotel is not in the best area for mobile data reception and for some reason Marriott still charge ridiculously high prices for WiFi access but the higher you room is the better the reception. The stay was slightly let down by random charges for items not consumed on the bill but this was dealt with quickly and without fuss by reception staff. Would I go back again? Certainly!
