“1st time in the city”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Elected to stay at this venue as it appeared to be central in the city, I was not dissapointed with the location. Arrived a bit early for booking in, this posed no problem to the reception staff who were on the ball and able to get us in the room ASAP. Allocated room 103, close to reception and up one flight of stairs. The room was adequately appointed, very clean and welcoming, the crisp white sheets and purple throw over have an endearing feel to them.
The bed was very comfortable and there was a view out onto the adjacent river. Although located at the bottom of a busy nightime street we never heard anything and had a fantastic nights sleep. All in all brilliant hotel and highly recommended, will be back again in Dec and looking to get room 103.

Room Tip: room 103 well appinted and close to reception area

Very good hotel with really friendly staff. Caters well for children . The hotel room was really clean and had good facilities. The double bed was excellent and the childs bed was really good and just the right height for my child to get into with no help!

Top service, spotless rooms, good food....I always find Premier inns consistantly good quality, The Nelson is set next to the river and is a very lively setting but you still get the good nights sleep that's guaranteed 10/10

Typically very good Premier Inn. They seem to have found a winning formula. Room clean and relatively quiet, although a/c noisy when on. Good evening meal and very good breakfast in the on site restaurant.

City centre parking was convenient as often these hotels have off site parking only. Would recommend.

Hi

Have stayed here a number of times on business. It's in a great location near Norwich Station and close by for the city centre, right by the river. Great to sit and take in after a days work!

Rooms are well sized and very clean and the beds very comfortable. Food in the restaurant is good and reasonably priced. Staff are very welcoming, helpful and cheery.

Will use again on any trip back to Norwich.
