Stayed 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend. First impressions were not good, it's a bit of a building site at the moment. The balcony rooms overlooking the garden are defiantly the best option & are everything you expect from Premier Inn. It's just across the road from the train station so good for a day at the seaside.

There's not an awful lot you can say about Premier Inns, as their rooms tend to be pretty similar - very comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, this one has very cheerful staff and it's extremely convenient for the railway station- literally just over the road and the river (the pedestrian access to the reception is a little bit of a mystery...

Premier inns are a bit like the McDonald's of hotels. No surprises but no excitement either. Good rooms, friendly staff, good prices, good breakfast (NOT included in price as claimed on trip advisor!) This one is a little different being riverside, so make sure you get an over looking room. Also the location is good, perhaps on the student/crummy side... More

View over the river on the most beautiful day of the year was the most wonderful way to wake up. Room was very clean and modern, and huge! I also enjoyed watching 'Mustard TV', a Norwich-specific station, this added to my enjoyment of this trip. Friendly staff were very welcoming and free parking a huge bonus. Walking distance from the... More

Good night's sleep ; friendly staff fantastic breakfast offering. This isn't newest of premier inn but located 2 mins from railway station couldn't be more convenient and on really hot day in August room aircon did perfect job of keeping room cool. Only disappointment the service at restaurant (where you have breakfast) next door was poor and while cheap and... More

We stayed at this Hotel for four days from the 12th August. Initially there was a problem with finding accommodation owing to my disability and being in a wheelchair, but Premier Inns were more than helpful. We were allocated a ground floor disability room. It was excellent and the bathroom was very roomy to allow a wheelchair to operate. The... More

At present this hotel is undergoing a big refurbishment, so my room had a view of scaffolding and a building site. They have a temporary reception and an out of order lift. The rooms have A/C which is a bonus. The staff are helpful, very friendly and welcoming.

I have stayed here before and as ever it was really good. Clean and well decorated, good room with comfortable beds. Staff very friendly and professional. They are extending the hotel but we suffered no noise from this. We did experience noise one evening from some others in a room nearby but once staff were informed they sorted the problem... More

Great staff and a warm welcome - and a lovely place from which to wander into the city centre along the Wensum river. It's literally across the road from the station and a rather busy road but the river lies between the hotel and the road. The river walk goes from across the road to the Premier Inn - you... More
