Booked the Oakland hotel week before so all the good hotels I was looking at had been booked in or the prices which were the same price as the Oakland had gone.
The first 2 days the room I was given was small one bed room but had paid for the classic room and very hot.Could not control the radiator,but no air con but had a small fan in the wardrobe so had to open the loft window a little bit because it was raining the first day.
Room had tea/coffee maker and free wifi which was a bit slow but could read email.
Breakfast was included but tea/coffee was a bit weak for wakening me up ;(
Third time lucky was given a classic double bedroom which I was able to control the radiator temperature but double bed one side warped like an elephant had slept on that side ;)
Had a meal at the restaurant.
Skipped the carvery which was heated by spot lights like the buffet breakfast.
It was ok .Nothing to write home about.
If I have to book a hotel in Norwich last minute will go back but given the choice and doing advance booking will go elsewhere given the price.
Has free parking.
The reception staff need to be a bit more train in customer relations.
Did not get a refund on the first 2 days but that does not mean I am writing a bad review.
Like teachers keep saying must do better ;)
Just like their Food hygiene 3 stars out of 5 possible for the restaurant.
