“Faulty Towers......in Norwich!”
Reviewed 21 December 2008

When planning a business trip to Norwich, you'd think there'd be a wide range of choice for accomodation?

Not really surprisingly!

I'll keep looking, most the villages, towns and cities I visit have one or two 'gems' hidden.......as for Norwich....need to keep looking I'm afraid.

Location is ok, a short walk from the tacky end of town.....you walk past poundland, co-op dept store and other cheap stores. Access to the road walking from town or train station is via a dodgy looking underpass network. Not for the faint hearted at night...though being a South Londoner born & bread....I don't scare easy!

Hotel reception was less then warm.....young lady at the desk, seemed allergic to smiling & polite conversation.....I quickly gave up as she thrusted the registration card at me to complete.

My room was apparently...''upstairs''. That was the extent of my directions. When I found the room it was like being transported back to the 80's. Vinyl wall freezes, dado rails, frilly net curtains, vinyl wallpaper in the tiny bathroom....peeling in places.

Room was facing onto the busy & noisey Newmarket Road.....with an old sash window that didn't close the whole way, so cold & noisey in Dec!!
Bed was actually quite soft & comfy however....which was a plus.

Everything just felt plastic or nylon. Upon checking out, a different lady (more mature...possibly management?) was equally monotone and methodical.

At £75 per night.....just not value for money, sorry.

  • Liked — Erm..........reasonably near city centre I suppose.
  • Disliked — ....the accomodation.

Loved the hotel.

The room i was staying in was in a separate building from the reception and breakfast room. It was like a separte house. You had a front door key and the key to your room so still very seucre.

The staff were great :-) Breakfast was lovely. It was a really nice breakfast room too.

Hotel was clean.

The only problem was that that the hotel was situated bettween two busy main roads so if you are a light sleeper i would maybe think again - but it did not bother me personally.

  • Liked — Large room
  • Disliked — Traffic noise

Stayed here 1 night.
Guy on reception great - friendly and helpful.
Large room clean - but very very dated..must be 20 years since decorated.
Eat in conservatory. It was very cold.
Food - not sure. The guy on the next table marveled at this.
I had the goats cheese tartlet..very nice.
but the main course of baked cod was a big disappointment.
Really close to the centre of town - 8 minutes brisk walk.
Would I stay there again..... I think I'd try other places first
