“A great little hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2012

My wife, our daughter and I stayed in the family room which was very comfortable. Mandy and David who run the place were extremely friendly and helpful, and made us feel very welcome. The location is very convenient for the football ground and the station, and it is an easy walk to the city centre and the main sights. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a small hotel in Norwich.

Have just stayed at this small hotel and was very impressed with the quality of room and service we received.

The lady, responsible for managing the establishment could not have been more helpful in ensuring our stay was satisfactory?

Rooms were spotless and breakfast amazing

For the money and convenience, the Abbey Hotel is definitely one of the best places to stay in Norwich.

I stayed at the Abbey Hotel in late July for five nights before I left Norwich after graduating from UEA. I had an excellent stay there, which is in a handy location near the train station, within 15 minutes walk to Morrisons and 20 minutes walk to the city centre.

It is not fair to expect a 5-star service for this competitive price, but I was really surprised to see how lovely and friendly the hotel is! My room is very clean and well-decorated in Victorian style. The bathroom is excellent and the shower is even better than the one in Travelodge Norwich Central Station! Full English breakfast and anything requested was granted. I had free wifi throughout the hotel. Best of all, Mandy and David are very friendly and helpful. Since I was on the move and had lots of heavy luggages with me after my 3-year study, Mandy and David provided me useful advices in the shipping and helped me in moving the luggages up and down the stairs.

The Abbey Hotel is superb value for money and I will stay there again.

Highly recommend to anyone!

If you like to stay in an ugly decorated room with old, cheap and dated furniture, a bathroom next door from the last century and a lot of improvisation this is the right place to go. Wifi works, it's clean and it's just a 5-minutes walk to the station but that's all. Owners are friendly and attentive, but they should transfer the guest house into the 21. century. If the Stracey hotel in the same street next door is available, stay there! It's worth the extra money and you feel like living in the year 2011.

Stayed here one night to attend a business event. Very close to train station which was perfect,it took me 10 minutes to stroll to the station from the hotel.. Easy to walk into town centre to socialise etc. The owners/managers were extremely helpful, polite and friendly. I actually got an upgraded room so was very lucky. The room and bed were very clean. The bathroom was immaculate. The full English Breakfast was lovely and very welcome, served from 7.30 to 9;30. Tea and coffee was available in rooms. TV in all rooms with freeview. This is a good, clean, friendly basic hotel for a city stay.I will be visiting Norwich again quite a lot for business and intend to use this hotel whenever I can. I would highly reccomend it.
