“Good and bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

We stayed in room 18 on the top floor. The room was impeccably clean, the bed was comfortable and it all looked great, but it is in the attic and has severely restricted headroom down one side of the room due to the eaves. I am 5'4" and could not walk round the bed without bending.
The bathroom was restricted on space - it was long and very, very, narrow - there was a gap of only about 14 inches between the sink and the wall so we had to turn sideways to walk in front of it, between the toilet and shower.
The space to stand up in the bedroom/ bathroom was actually less than that available in one of the single bedrooms. The top floor is also at the top of a couple of steep sets of stairs so unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems.
Staff were helpful and the breakfast was very good.
There is little parking available nearby. Rather than take the car into town we use the nearby public car park during the day (£5) then found a free 2 hour space from 4.30pm which we had to leave by 10am the following morning.
A mixed bag – some good points, some not so good. It might be useful for the hotel to mention that there is restricted headroom in some rooms as I suspect all four attic rooms will be the same.

Room Tip: If you are large, tall or don't want to bend, ask about the suitability when you book.

Stracey is a great hotel - everything is finished to a very high standard (the shower was particularly good and VERY hot!), breakfast was lovely and the staff were friendly and kind. Thanks very much!

The hotel room was small but clean and modern the bathroom was fab the shower was great with piping hot water. However the tele was mounted on the wall and when laid in bed couldn't be seen properly as it was on a fixed bracket and not an adjustable one but everything else was good

Nice to find a hotel of this calibre cheaper than all the usual suspects. Close to train station, professional and courteous staff, sensible priced food and beer. No faults at all. Oh and free wifi, there's a rarity!
Will definitely stay here again Shen next in Norwich

Stayed here when attending an event at UEA for work. Staff were helpful and welcoming. Hotel is situated about a 5 minute uphill walk from Norwich Railway station and slightly further away from the city centre (certainly easily walkable) - there is also a complex of shops (Next, Boots, Outfit etc) and restaurants situated nearby at Norwich riverside.

My room had a double and single bed and was immaculate. Everything was impeccably clean and as you would wish it to be. The bathroom was clean, modern and the shower was easy to operate. I didn't have any issues with the wi-fi speed. I was given the choice of any English or continental breakfast or both and the breakfast service was quick and efficient. The hotel does do evening meals but I chose to go out for something to eat.

To my mind, the Stracey offers great value for money; high quality accommodation in a location close enough to the city centre not to be inconvenient but away from all of the hustle and bustle. Keep up the good work!

We have stayed at the Stracey hotel several times and it has a consistently high standard. Clean and comfortable rooms, large bathrooms, and an excellent breakfast. It is very conveniently located for the station and the town centre, and the staff are friendly and helpful.

We booked for my husbands 40th Birthday. The staff enable extra guests to book as a surprise without letting us know- even changing the size of the taxi to the restaurant to accommodate the new size of the party. The rooms were stylish, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and fantastic value for money. We would definitely stay again!!!
