Best Western Annesley House Hotel
Ranked #5 of 50 Hotels in Norwich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2011

To the point .... I have stayed in better places, for cheaper. Best Western, as a chain only (to me) means I get loyalty points. There is little consistency with the hotels. This particular premise was close to the city centre (a plus), the staff were competent, and the room was clean. The building is a converted house, so don't expect rooms necessarily fitting the price. My main disappointment was the breakfast, I booked B&B (which equated to £8 for breakfast), to pay for breakfast separately would cost £10.50, something I'd be loathed to pay for what I received, which was a 'full english', comprising of 1 egg, 2 rashers of bacon, countable beans,5 mini mushrooms, 1 hash brown (of the frozen variety), 1 sausage (more like a mutant cocktail sausage), and a tomato. I have stayed in home B&B and ate better (food prepared by a non-professional chef). Basically, I stayed for 4 nights, and gave up on breakfast after the second morning. I would stay again only because of it's location (minutes walk from city centre) and the fact that it wasn't my personal money paying.
I normally stay at chain hotels because you know what you're getting, but with Best Western, it's hit and miss (e.g. The Best Western Ufford Park Hotel, Ipswich, is an absolute delight to stay in).

oh, and despite the rating, I wouldnt call the internet 'high speed', but it was free.

2 nights spent in 2 different rooms because the first room was so small, I've worn bigger overcoats.
When I asked to be moved the receptionist was shirty at me asking. The rooms look clean from a distance but lack a detailed clean fir the money. The bedding felt and smelled worn out.
The staff although on the whole reasonably efficient were less than welcoming and gave about as much warmth as a tramps flip flop.
The breakfast was prompt and very good with a choice of cooked breakfasts. (and they can poach an egg) but we chose to dine out dye to an empty dining conservatory dull menu and expensive prices.
My advice. Book elsewhere if you want to sleep soundly the road is noisy and in august you suffocate without the windows wide open due to lack of aircon. The bathroom was clean but again unless you are prepared to poo in the bath there is precious little room.
All in all soulless, noisy, small and way to steep for the money.

Stayed in a recently refurbished room. Lovely room although the bathroom had not been refurbished which let it down a bit. The breakfast was very nice and lots of choice. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from Norwich town centre so near to lots of the lovely restaurants. If you don't feel like walking into town for dinner a taxi is quick and cost us £6 single trip. Annesley House is a perfect base for a visit to Norwich (large car park). Would stay there again if we go back to Norwich.

The hotel was very clean and decorated to a high standard. The staff were all welcoming and helpful. Our room was spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. Overall it was a good experience and we would stay there again.

A couple of minor draw backs: the stairs and corridors are rather steep and narrow and might be difficult for the infirm or elderly. While breakfast was good, our evening meal was not quite to the same standard as the rest of the hotel. Next time we would probably eat out.

This is a pleasant and convenient place to stay if you are visiting Norwich or the surrounding area. Don't expect lots of leisure facilities but our room was good, well-equipped, clean and comfortable if a little gloomy. Breakfast was perfectly adequate with plenty to choose from and the dining room was lovely and airy, looking on to the garden. We thought the restaurant and bar menus a little over-priced, therefore ate elsewhere in town. The staff were friendly and attentive and there was plenty of tourist information available, to enhance your stay if necessary. We'd certainly consider staying here again.

£65 a night suggest that you are not going to have luxury - and the hotel doesn't let you down. Nothing really wrong with it if you want a clean bed and shower. WI-FI is free which is a great thing - however if you want to do anything other than slowly surf (like it was 1990) then don't get too excited

so nothing wrong but nothing really right either

Recently had a few nights stay and really pleased with the hotel. It is clean and the staff are helpful and polite. I use hotels for both business and leisure and can see that this would fit either category well. The bedroom was on the small side, but perfectly adequate and the bathroom was clean and well stocked. Ate in the restaurant and agree that it is perhaps a bit pricey, but the food was very good. The breakfasts are well cooked and service prompt. It is a 10 or 15 minute walk into the town. All in all would recommend this pleasant hotel.
