We booked through the internet on the Holiday Inn website, very easy to do and a very good price, booking the breakfast at the same time made it easier on the day, all you have to do is give your name on entering the dining room.
The hotel is easy to find, with plenty of parking spaces. Booking in was efficient, with very friendly & helpful staff.
The public rooms and bedrooms are clean, with smart and functional décor.
We took advantage of the complimentary use of the leisure facilities: 15m swimming pool; sauna and steam room, but we didn’t use the gym. Show your room key card at the Spirit leisure Club Reception when you sign in: opening times 6.30 to 10.00 p.m. Monday to Friday; 7.00 to 10.00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. A refundable £1 coin is needed for the lockers and towels are provided, free of charge.
We were not disturbed by outside noise, even though the room overlooked the car park and reception; however the room doors are quite noisy when they close, so we were woken a bit earlier than we would have liked. One criticism is that they only provided enough milk, tea/coffee for 2 drinks each, not sure if you could request more. You could choose the firmness of your pillow!
Breakfast was a buffet style. There was plenty of choice: standard full English including Bury black pudding (a taste of my home town for me, much appreciated); fruits; cereals; cold meat; croissants; Danish pastries; yoghurts and even pancakes from the pancake machine. Again the staff were polite, efficient and helpful; offering more tea/coffee at your table.
If using this hotel as a base for visiting Norwich you could use the Harford park & ride (not on Sundays), which is close by.
I would highly recommend using this hotel.
