We stayed here Fri and Sat over Easter.
The hotel is conveniently located to visit Norwich. Easy 20min walk to centre and also a good base to visit the Norfolk area.
They kindly gave us a room overlooking the Norwich FC which was a novelty in itself. I guess there would be extra cost if there was a game on, but would be an experience.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable and clean.
The only major disappointment for me is that there is no wifi in the room. We were advised that we could connect using a cable which is a bit old fashioned and impossible with smart phones and ipads. Also i think there is an extra charge for this.
We used the internet in the lobby and this worked fine. Note that you need to get a user name and password from reception which are valid for 24hours.
We had a few drinks at the bar which were reasonable priced and had a nice atmosphere. The hotel does get busy with locals for dinner and drinks.
The hotel has a parking area - part of the football grounds parking - but the second night this was packed when we got back and we were told to park outside the hotel on the yellow lines. There is a nightly charge for parking.
