For the sector this hotel is in we paid a pretty high price. The location is OK (not central if you want to go shopping unless its at ASDA) and the parking was not pleasant. After a long drive to Norwich circling the car park in the rain for 15 minutes looking for a space was not my idea of fun. Most people seemed to be using the Sports facility nearby.
The WiFi charge, again for this range of hotel is optimistic at best...the excuses offered only serve to embarrass the poor desk clerks....
The room was fine, very clean and quite quiet. The carpet in my room was rather odd...large areas raised up which I am surprised have not been fixed. I nearly tripped over them on numerous occasions.
Breakfast was the same standard as a Travelodge except without the low price....I would strongly suggest this area is invested in.
It would not be my first choice in Norwich.
