hotel could really do with a good overall but is very well situated close to the town centre and railway station we found the staff all pleasant and helpful and served up a very good breakfast the saying is you get what you pay for this cost us 29 pound each through laterooms . com i dont think thats to bad for a saturday night in this area

Room Tip: ask for front room you should get a good view over the river

The so called beds you are unable to sleep on as the spring were the only part of the bed you can feel.
There is a constraint smell of waste from the bath room .There is not a chair in the room and the only place to put or hand your cloths was on a 2 foot open rail that was above the tea and coffee table.
The TV in the room only worked on one channel.
The breakfast although it was served fast was cold and if you didn’t want anything no replacement was given.

myself and two friend visited the central hotel to stay whilst on a night out in norwich. We are in are third yr of uni and wanted a nice little place to stay while we let our hair down a bit. When entering the room the first thing we saw was the horrible dirty walls, no heating, no blind at the bathroom window, and even dirt in the sink it was totally rank. no appoligies for the state of the room was given.

i would advise the hotel owners to update the pictures to what the rooms actually do look like and oh also beware you maybe closer to your other room guest than u thought as we were woken to a little bedroom activity above, paper thin walls spring to mind!!!!!!

Do not stay at this hotel it is over priced for what i can only describe and as a dirty smelly hostle room.

For those travellers on a budget this is possible the best value for money accommodation in the Norwich area and you will not regret making this your place to stay.

The welcome at the Central Hotel was pleasant and efficient.

My room was very clean, in good decorative order and above all was warm and welcoming. The bed was comfortable and benefited from nice crisp clean linen. I choose to stay in a standard nom en suite room, the room did benefit from a wash basin, however the bathroom down the corridor was always clean and tidy.

The television has the basic channels; free view might be an upgrade that the hotel should consider sooner rather than later.

The hotels situation could not been better, some 2 mins walk from the mainline railway station with trains every 30 minutes to London, then some 10-15 minutes walk to the city centre and the bus station and main shopping centre, bus depart from the stop at the rail station to the centre at regular intervals for the 5 minute journey to the centre or onward to the university and the main hospital.

All in all excellent budget accommodation to which I will be definitely returning

Central Hotel has a nice location, three minutes walk from Norwich station with a nice view over the river and 10 minutes walk from city centre.
Friendly staff, nice clean room, standard breakfast. It is perfect for a short stay and it is good value for money.
It can get a bit noisy (traffic and noise from corridors and other rooms).

Stayed for one night at Central Hotel Norwich as I was catching a train early the next morning. Central Hotel is 2 minutes walk away for Norwich Railway Station.
Meet by very helpful proprietor who showed me to my room, which was a single room over looking the main road and the river. Towels and tea coffee making facilities provided. Bathroom was along the corridor, very clean and tidy.
Bedroom could have a good hoover around the skirting boards, otherwise clean sheets.
Being summer I had the window open, but was woke at 0430 by Chavs walking along the main road screaming and shouting on their way home. Not good as there seemed to be a constant flow 0430ish I guess once the clubs had kicked out.
Suggest asking for a back facing room if you stay here.
I have stayed here several time before and would stay again. Its clean (ish) and ideal if your on a low budget or just want cheap and cheerful. Deffo not the place for a romantic weekend.
