“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Stayed here for a three night stay whilst attending a football game. From the time of booking in nothing was to much trouble for the staff. Being a wheelchair user it was nice to have a hotel room that served my needs, large, spacious, wheel in/walk in shower room everything was perfect, clean tidy room and car parking which is a bonus here. Access was good and locality for everything was excellent for all local attractions. Just one thing to mention that this hotel is at the bottom of a hill and is a short walk to the shopping area, but up hill is s struggle if you are being pushed in a wheelchair. Although a little bit dearer than most Premier Inns this is a prime location and you would pay a little more for this.

Room Tip: We had a room that over looked the river which was nice although a little bit away from the receptio...

This is a great budget hotel if you wish to simply relax, eat, drink , snooze and take in the sights of friendly Norwich. OK, so it's a ten minute walk from the town centre, but that's no big deal, however its got a great view of the river, FANTASTIC restaurant, really friendly staff and it's right next to the riverside food and entertainment area of Norwich, which means a choice of bars, food, cinema or bowling, but if it's the quiet life you want then out of all the Norwich Premier Inns , this is the one. It also boast free on site parking, truly pleasant garden with superb fishpond (understatement) overlooking the river, which all adds to the relaxing atmosphere, this is a real jewel in the premier crown. A big thanks to all the staff that make this the hotel the one to remember for all the right reasons. Note to management: DON'T ALTER ANYTHING !

Excellent location close to Cathedral and with a lovely riverside walk through some of the quieter spots in Norwich. Friendly staff, clean rooms and the biggest tastiest breakfast ever. Not to mention that Mary Berry was staying there whilst filming 'Who do you think you are".

We stayed here for my husbands 40th birthday as we went out In the town . Unfortunately our room was right below the generator and we didn't get a wink of sleep - we couldn't move rooms as they're were none available -room was a good size And extremely clean - we also liked the view from the window just a shame about the constant buzzing from above :-(

Have stayed here before and no problems at all. This time around the same story, booked in advanced and a midweek stay was around £150, no complaints, just an amazing hotel, with amazing and friendly staff who work around the clock to provide excellent service.
