“Good Value Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2008

Was looking for a quiet few days away from work and chose this from the HI website as offering a very good rate (£75 inc B/fast) for an executive toom. Arrived in at the station and was easy to find about a 5 min walk. Good check in - although no Priority Club line but only had to wait 2 mins. Corner Room (601) overlooking pitch - hate football so thankfully no games on. Room was very nice, clean and spacious. As an executive room complimentary HSIA - althoug had to phone reception to confirm. LCD TV in room - but like most hotels there have missed the point if you are going to provide a good TV you need a good signal and channel choice. Minor issue but if you are not going to provide a good signal to the TV use a cheap set.

Only ate in the hotel at breakfast - modest selection compared to other HI buffet but sufficient for most people - although lack of servers first thing on 2 days - if I has not paid could have got b/fast for free. Good selection of places to eat at the nearby Riverside centre and supermarket nearby for essentials.

Overall good base if you want to tour norwich by foot (a reasonable but not long walk) and many good day trips by train. Would also be good for a business trip.

Only a short one night stay... but everything worked great, staff was wecoming and efficient... and cool views over the football pitch. In stark contrast with Marriott property! I felt rates were quite reasonable for what you were getting.

An excellent new hotel. It is standard Holiday Inn stuff, but far better than I expected compared to other Norwich hotels. Huge ‘double double’ bedroom with internet and plasma screen. Excellent room service and a buffet breakfast that runs for hours... Clean tidy room and bathroom and excellent location if you want to watch the football out of your window! It is a distance from town, but excellent for the rail station. Let’s not get confused, it's no romantic old town get away, but a clean, efficient, new hotel with a lot to offer. Compared to some of the bed and breakfasts in town that charge only a little less, you would be insane to stay anywhere else. They are foul. It's also worth noting that taxi's in Norwich are not exactly expensive! A good addition to Norwich.

On arrival (which was at 12.30) the friendly hotel staff were kind enough to book us in early into our room. The room was exceptionally clean and through the window we were greeted with a fab view of the hallowed turf.........superb. Very impressed with the decor and the two big and comfortable beds.
The brekkie was very good too.....

Will definately be staying here again!!
