Stracey Hotel
Ranked #14 of 50 Hotels in Norwich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2011

Stayed 3 nights using as a base in Norwich with family.
Staff... are welcoming, flexible and considerate.
Breakfast... has options of continental, cooked or alternative - cooked English of high quality w/local sausage & bacon, options re how eggs cooked etc & alternative options give variety (e.g. smoked salmon and eggs).
Bedrooms... are modern; en-suite just what was required clean and nicely done. Family room size good.
Any negatives? ... Well not really - car parking is the worst point I guess, but lets face it is in a city so what do you expect... it worked fine for us for 3 nights so parking should be fine for most.
Tips? ... Bus 25 or 35 to centre if feeling lazy or travelling with a little kid with tired feet! Assembly rooms for a decent pre-theatre time meal in lovely surroundings.
Other? Wifi is thrown in when many other places still deem it fit to charge excessively for this - a welcome addition.

This hotel had been recently refurbished. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in the price. We had an excellent cooked breakfast.
The rooms were tastefully decorated and very well furnished. The bathroom was clean and bright and bottles of shower gel/shampoo were provided.
There was no parking at the hotel but plenty of on-street parking.
Our stay was booked though lastminute.com and was extremely good value. We would certainly use this hotel again and would recommend it to others looking for a clean and friendly hotel.

We stayed at the Stracey Hotel on Saturday 28th May after our original hotel, the Maid's Head, cancelled our booking at the last minute. And what a brilliant cancellation it turned out to be - the Stracey was by far the best hotel that we have stayed and could not fault it for any reason; from the moment we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome which was down to the receptionist Verity. The room we had was ample sized, with a very modern and tasteful decor. Top facilities in the room with a shower to die for, with assistance from Verity and her colleagues ready to hand if needed. The personal touch, the friendliness, the cleanliness and the whole charm of the hotel made it a hotel to definitely visit again. Food wise, the breakfast was to die for (especially after a night out) and was plentiful in portion size. Finally, the first aid offered by the staff to my partner was first class after she had forgotten to bring dressings for her stitches. Excellent, first class service offered at a fantastic hotel; a service I doubt the Maid's Head could offer (especially after speaking to probably the most arrogant, rude receptionist ever who seemed to take delight in canceling our room there).

Well done the Stracey!!
