Premier Inn Norwich West (Showground/A47) Hotel
Ranked #16 of 50 Hotels in Norwich
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Always have a good comfortable night at a Premier Inn and this one was no exception. Only stayed the one night but very clean and spacious room and looked as if it had just been refurbished. Stayed here to visit Norwich for the day so reasonable location with only a short drive into city centre.

Waited 30 minutes for the receptionist to check us in as she was helping someone on the phone book via the Internet, car park gets busy due to the bar next door not much round and about for getting food

Stayed on business. Typical premier inn, tidy, well presented, helpful staff. Think been recently decorated as slight wiff of paint.
Rooms were fine, lovely comfy bed, plenty towels and pillows.
As usual a top overnight stay in premier.

Rooms are stuffy, cant have windows open due to the close proximity of A47 slip road. Shower head coming away from wall with piece of tile attached. Noise from other residents going to rooms late at night. Duvet heavy. Constantly having to get more milk, coffee and tea etc from reception. Only one hand towel for two people (company policy)

Stayed here 2 nights.
A £10 taxi ride from Norwich.
Room okay (nearby road is a bit noisey with window open)
It's all a bit tired, with an actual key to the rooms - very retro.
Shower a not creaky.
But it is what it is I guess, a basic bed. Place is full of pensioners so appeals to those on a budget.
Only negative - the breakfast next door in the attached pub. A shocker. The chef murdered our fry ups, inedible. Pity as it's £8.25 wasted and needed to then buy a decent breakfast with actual cooked sausages and with an egg you didn't have to carve with an axe.

In many respects this is a perfectly reasonable budget hotel. But it's not quite up to the usual standards of Premier Inn: the rooms are starting to be a bit tired and our family room was very cramped with no space between the beds. You can tell it is one of the older PIs as you actually get a real key, not a plastic card to get in. Decent beds, pillows, breakfasts, but not enough ventilation as usual - I would imagine it would be unbearable in high summer. The adjacent TableTable pub/restaurant is okay, but lacks character.

I've always had a great stay here. Staff are friendly, rooms are clean and they always put me in the room I like.

I always look forward to staying here when I'm in the Norwich area.

The restaurant next door does need some attention.
