This hotel has only one redeeming feature: the front desk staff who are very helpful. Otherwise here is a litany of issues we encountered during our 3 night stay: The WiFi is unreliable and very, very spotty The room is beyond bare bones The parking is nightmarish as there are

Hi TaiTam1, Thank you for your review. My apologies for the issues that you encountered during your stay. We are currently addressing many of the issues you have detailed. We are having a full refurbishment of guest rooms and public areas later this year, this will also include a new guests WIFI system. There is new signage and a new parking system being installed very soon that will make parking for guests a lot easier and a sound limiter has been installed at the neighbouring leisure club. My sincerest apologies that the breakfast was not up to standard, I will talk to the breakfast team about this. Please understand that we are working on these issues. Thank you, Darren.

Had a great stay over the Easter weekend whilst visiting family in Norwich. Clean, tidy, inviting hotel. I realised at past 11.30 when I needed to wash my babies bottles for the night that I hadn't packed washing up liquid so went to reception to see if I could get some to

Stayed here with 4 other ladies for a hen do. The lady on reception was helpful but wouldn’t let us wait 10 minutes for the final person to arrive so we could split the bill which was a bit inconvenient but never mind. The room was clean and the beds are comfy, clean decent

Hi Mehan44Lang, Thank you for your review. I'm happy that you made good use of our shuttle service and that the breakfast team accommodated your sister. My apologies that the breakfast wasn't up to standards, despite it being a complimentary part of your stay we still want it to be the best it can be, so I will feed back to the team. Best wishes, Darren.

Stayed here on a Thursday evening, and first impressions were good - clean and modern reception, friendly check in and the room was of good standard too. However I like to apply my version of Maslow’s ‘Hierarchy of Needs’ when I stop at a hotel, and consider the following to

Hi Daugtanion, Thank you for taking the time to write a beautifully creative review. I'm happy to read that there was enough toilet roll in the room and that the room was clean and bed comfy. Also that first impression were good and that the team were friendly. I could say at this point that we were trying to prevent some AI inspired future distopia and return us to some form of Neanderthal based living arrangement, but this would simply be untrue. The simple truth of the matter is that we were having technical issues with the internet in which I can only apologise about (we also tried turning off and on but were also frustrated by failure). We have recently upgraded our Fibre Broadband offering and have further improvements on the way. I can only hope that this can help further your Candy Crush ambitions if you were to stay with us again in the future. I hope you choose to stay with us again in the future. Best wishes, Darren.
