We had a lovely room overlooking the river and the railway station. It was very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was as splendid as always. The added extra was seating outside the bar area, lovely on a hot summers evening!

First visit to Norwich and booked this hotel based on tripadvisor rating - was not disappointed. Family of 5 (3 kids all under 10), we were welcomed and looked after. Rooms were clean, fresh and modern. We stayed for breakfast only and found the food to be very good with plenty of choice for all of us. My only gripe... More

We stayed here again on Sunday 17th to Monday eve 18th July with some of our family for our granddaughter's graduation. Once again we were well looked after, with Jamie going out of his way to change our evening meal request, and all the staff in the restaurant on Monday eve, especially Emma, looking after our every need. The food... More

if you're coming to Norwich on the train then you couldn't find a nearer hotel to the station, just across the bridge at the end of the car park. If you do drive there is some parking available. Very good, clean hotel. Good location. Easy walking distance to the city centre, about 5 mins. Across the river from a great... More

Very warm and friend staff couldn't have been more helpful. Room was excellent for what I needed and central to train station, riverside, cinema. Price was very good and no complaints about breakfast, only downside was having to get up for my business meeting. Great stuff guys

For our first trip to the region we naturally considered Premiere Inn first and foremost - with three to choose from, location and parking were highest on the list and the Nelson hotel ticked the boxes. Although there is a massive expansion to the hotel, at no point did we hear any noise and our room and location allowed a... More

Got a family room over the weekend for 2 people. The room was spacious and could have fit 4 grown adults. Although near the social area of Norwich didn't have problems sleeping. Internet was free too although if you wanted to watch YouTube it was poor quality and you need to pay for premium access. To note if you come... More

Booked a family room for one night, was very pleased with the room we were given. On top floor at the back of the hotel, which is nice and quiet. It was very spacious for a Premier Inn room, even the bathroom was bigger than normal. We had a large balcony so we could go outside and get some air... More

The hotel is having an extension build at the moment. I am usually a fan of this hotel but did not enjoy my most recent visit. I was in a room around 5 minutes walk from the reception. There was an unpleasant smell in the bedroom like disinfectant as if there had been sickness or something by the previous customer.... More
