“January break in Norwich”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

My partner, mother-in-law and I enjoyed 2 nights at the Premier Inn. There are plenty of good restaurants close by and the Inn is situated opposite the railway station and a 10 minutes walk to the town centre. We found the rooms clean and warm and the staff friendly. We got a fantastic deal and would definitely use Premier Inn again.

The staff were very helpful and the rooms are sparklingly clean. Of course this is budget accommodation but is very good value.It is lovely it is on the river but is on the end of road full of clubs(might be good or bad depending on your age!). As per another reviewer we were dropping our son off at UEA and it was well worth it. Norwich is a lovely city and we had a good night out before returning to London

This is Ok but I think the Premier Inn in Dukes street is a better location, right there in the high street. Simple rooms normal Premier Inn purple EVERYWHERE! Fine if you are on business and a budget.

We visited in Dec-11 to attend a Norwich home game and were mainly interested in the location and car park, but were pleasantly surprised by the hotel.

We were able to check in very early (approx 13.00) as we were in the City for a 15.00 kick off, the room & bathroom were small, but clean and comfortable with the furniture in good condition.

We had a meal in the onsite pub/restaurant and it was of a decent standard and good value, if not particularly exciting.

The hotel is just across from the station, and a short 10 minute walk from the football ground. The car park is of a decent size, with overflow at the weekends into the contiguous office car parks, and free for hotel users.

We'll definitely be returning for future games.

Room Tip: Front of hotel faces major 'nightlife' street on the route to the station.

My son attends Norwich University and we have found this is a great place to stay when we visit him. The restaurant was excellent and the rooms clean and comfortable, we will defiantly stay here again. Location for the beautiful city of Norwich is perfect, about a 10 - 15 minute walk. great car parking, and the friendliest staff we have ever found, well done guys and we wish you a very happy new year. See you in April

First glance on booking in was very good staff very helpful. We did ask for a room change because we were given a room over the car park which we did not want but a call to front desk got us a room with a view within a few minutes. Room was quite dull and boring could do with a makeover and change of carpet. Pillows were very uncomfortable bed not to bad a bit lumpy in places.
However on the plus side breakfast and staff throughout hotel was very good and would highly rate both. We did not eat dinner there however so cannot comment on the food.

Room Tip: Try to avoid overlooking car park.

We spent two nights in the Premier Inn Norwich Nelson City Centre. The rooms were clean, the bathrooms very nice - unbelievably convenient to everywhere (we went by train). The breakfasts we had (grab and go one morning and full English breakfast the next morning) were excellent. The staff were very friendly and all in all, a really nice stay - very impressive hotel.
