“Great Location”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

Stayed on 20th of December 2012 and was ideal for the loacation of the Company Christmas Party. 5 min walk from the train station and good for a central location to the Norwich City Centre.
Breakfast pretty much the same as most Premier Inns, good food but service lacking slightly.

Stayed Boxing Day night as came from the south to watch chelsea beat Norwich fantastic location for carrow road had great meal but then last orders got called at 7.20 pm we thought it was a joke we were residents and this is not what we expected and were not informed at booking or after checkin, maybe we were expected to go to bed with a cup of cocoa not your average chelsea supporter !!! We found a bar up the road that stayed open slightly later but were glad to be back south and civilisation.

Premier Inn is always my first choice when I can get a room at a reasonable price - always look for the saver offers! Norwich Nelson is one of the best: comfortable, spacious, overlooking the river and convenient for the train station and for the city. Stayed there for three days just after Christmas and there was no drop in the high standard; staff were as friendly and helpful as ever.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the river can be noisy at night with young people coming back from the nightclubs.

This is my 3rd stay at this particular premiere inn and i love it it looks out over the river and it is so handy for the city center and shopping, the staff were as usual very help full and pleased to see you, We had a gathering of my family there for a meal and Greg the restaurant duty manager put us in a conference room which was ideal for the kids to run around and not upset any one it really did make our night a special one. I would recommend this hotel to everyone and i will defiantly be staying there again.

Room Tip: ask for a river veiw

Me and my girlfriend decided to stay here for the night so we could hit the sales in Norwich nice and early, must say that the room was extremely comfortable with everything you need at a great price. The location is perfect as its only a short walk to the city centre and the station is literally across the road! The staff and the cleanliness of the hotel were very good and very helpful. Would definately recommend this as a place to stay and we will definately be coming back again

Stayed here on a Friday night whilst doing Christmas shopping on a saver rate of £19 and was greeted by friendly receptionists who were helpful and informative. The car park has a barrier and we parked the car there all weekend knowing it wouldn't cost anything the city centre only a short walk away.
The room was facing the river and they did warn us of some traffic noise but it didn't spoil our night there. There was some shouting in the street opposite but no problem, spotless and comfortable.
The restaurant was busy with Christmas party's but we were well looked after by our waiter Jordan I think his name was. The meal was very good and priced well, only complaint was not being able to finsh dessert.
All in all a great little break, well done everyone at premier inn.

I sometimes go off for short breaks birdwatching and at short notice tend to use the budget hotels that are local to where I want to be. Yet again,here at Norwich Nelson, in my view, Premier Inn knocked spots off my experiences at Travelodge, Days Inn and other competitors. etc. The others are 'sleeping factories' yet again Premier Inn go better than that.

I needed to be close to Norwich railway station. This was 200m away. Great. There is a decent size car park. The check in was friendly. On check out, the receptionist asked had I enjoyed the dinner I had attended with former colleagues the previous evening - she remembered, I wasn't just a 'number'. The room was spotlessly clean, a decent size, the location was surprisingly quiet and I slept really well. (I like their policy of giving you a choice of pillows). Breakfast was the decent upside of mass catering (but not cooked to order). Hey for £79 bed and breakfast and parking and being in the absolutely right location, these people have it right. Why can't the other budget hotel chains be at this standard?
