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

Very pleasant stay at this Premier Inn which is located alongside the river. We were allocated a room on the 2nd floor which overlooked the river, which was bright, spacious and perfectly functional. Although currently undergoing some building work this did not affect our stay. All the staff we encountered were friendly polite and helpful from Reception to the Bar/Restaurant... More

Stayed here many times before and this stay was as good as all the others despite hotel having work done. Friendly staff, good location for station, football, castle, shops and river. We took up the meal deal offer for £23.99 for dinner and buffet breakfast which is a very good deal if all added up separately. Would recommend to others... More

Didn't stay here only came in for breakfast as staying on a boat. It's very close to were you can moor. The breakfast was very good . It's buffet style fruit, cereal, hot, continental and all drinks. There was a good selection of food and they also do gluten free bread. Not actually staying there was no problem we had... More

We arrived early to check in but was found an available room straight away. I changed my name on signing for the room as we had just got married and the receptionist brought us a bottle of champagne to our room. That was such a nice touch.
