We stayed here for two nights, using it as a base to explore Norwich and to visit family in the area. Although the hotel gives the impression of being a little older, it was still absolutely dead on for our needs. The hotel in general, and our room in particular, were spotless.
Travelling with our three month old daughter, we were given a huge room on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the river. This room must be used both as a family room as well as a disabled-access room, and so we had plenty of space for the baby’s travel cot (provided by the hotel), as well as all the other baby essentials that seem to take up so much space. The travel cot was a good size, but we brought our own mattress from the baby’s cradle as we thought she would be more familiar with it, and we were glad we did as the provided mattress was a little thin and didn’t seem particularly comfortable.
The room was great but the location within the hotel was not ideal, as it involved a lot of traipsing up stairs and along a number of corridors: not easy when your arms are full of baby stuff, and I imagine not easy if you are in a wheelchair and have to negotiate a number of doorways.
We ate out of the hotel restaurant both nights, but had to eat in our room as we had put the baby to bed by then. Unfortunately the hotel does not do room service and you need arms like Popeye to carry the massive, laden tray the full length of the hotel and up a flight of stairs. Saying that, the food was of a very good standard: we’d recommend the Continental sharing platter, simply for the baked Camembert: delicious!
The hotel is easy to get to, the free car park is a massive bonus, and its location for the city centre is ideal for exploring. We’d definitely go back.
