I stayed here for a Saturday night and had a nice single bedroom overlooking the river. I paid slightly more so I didn't have a shared bathroom. The hotel is in a great location close to the station and the town centre, literally a 5 minute walk if that. The staff were friendly - there are actually two buildings for... More

This is a bed and breakfast and not a hotel. When I arrived, the entire place reeked of fried food, including my room. The smell was so overwhelming, I had to keep the windows open (only two opened a little because the sashes were broken). The room overlooked the busy river road and so it was very noisy as it...

Arrived at hotel as was checked in by a polite gentleman and shown to room. Room 2. Room was very clean and a nice size. Bathroom was very clean too, although no toiletries other than bar soap. My first night was disturbed by neighboring room occupant snoring incredibly loudly that kept me awake for a while. I'm guessing very thing... More

We stayed one night. Our reception was very friendly, and the service was very good. The room was a little disappointing. Small room with twin beds, too small for a wardrobe, so there 4 coat hooks on the wall. Not good value for £65 without breakfast. Beds were comfortable, and the room was clean, warm and cosy. Very small bathroom... More

Location is superb,so close to the rail station and I really liked being near the River Wessum. They put me in the attic of their annex, which was fine, in fact such a long time since I last washed my hair via tubes attached to taps while sitting in the bath it was quite nostalgic. Traffic noise wasn't a problem.... More

Stayed here after an evening at the football, basic hotel with basic rooms, very clean and tidy with comfortable beds. breakfast ok. ground floor room, but no noise experienced from outside. all in all a good stopover hotel for this type of visit.

A nice little b&b - clean, quite, basic. if this is what you are looking for - it's good value for money. Make sure you ask for an en-suit. As long as you don't expect anything flashy or pampering... Does the job if you need a place to put your head!

I had to stay in Norwich for just one night and Central Hotel was perfect! Great location right by the station and the river with loads of places to eat nearby. The staff were so friendly and I immediately felt at home. Great facilities (including good wifi) and i had a nice full English breakfast in the morning for a... More

Stayed during a trip to watch the football. I normally opt for chain hotels, but they were fairly expensive in the centre of town, so choose the Central Hotel. Couldn't fault it for a hotel in this price range and enjoyed our stay. Great location for the town and a short walk to Carrow Road. It's also a two minute... More
