My husband and I stayed in this hotel for one night whilst visiting friends in Norwich, although far from a beautiful location it was clean and comfortable and easy to get into the city centre.
Breakfast was nice, varied and filling. We got a bargain through actually using the hotel website rather than a booking agent site, which was a nice surprise. However it did stipulate we would get pimms on arrival. This did not happen, no mention of it at all by reception staff. As we were going out that evening for drinks anyway we weren't really bothered by this, but if it says that's included then the staff should know to offer.
The room was clean and tidy, enough facilities but not a huge difference between Mercure and Travelodge.
My only real criticisms would be; air conditioner in the room is set to one temperature which I'm sure in summer is nice but September? too cold, it would have been nice to have been able to adjust it rather than keep turning it on and off.
The other point would be the pool, although on the small side it seemed very nice, but it was so heavily chlorinated my eyes started burning very quickly making it quite unpleasant, and the Jacuzzi was so bad we had to turn it off and sit without it bubbling as the steam was stinging my face. Also when i got out and showered I noticed my bikini had been bleached by the chemicals in the water. This is a swimsuit I have had for a while and used at many locations including another Mercure hotel and it has always remained the right colour.
We had a nice weekend on the whole we found it to be a very easy location to get to in and out of Norwich, but I wouldn't rush to stay there again.
