I stayed at this hotel for one night in February 2014.
I chose this hotel for my first trip to Norwich in part because of a good promotional price but more so due to the location. Coming from overseas I had more luggage to get rid of than the typical overnight guest and with limited time to explore the city this Premier Inn's location less than 5 minutes walk from my arrival and departure point, the train station, was ideal. There were also plenty of restaurants, pubs, and food shops within a few minutes walk.
In addition to location and price a few other positives were the very spacious room, the bathroom, comfortable bed, a table with chair, TV with Freeview (though no red button), and luggage storage area. At first the shower concerned me as it looked like some continental ones where nothing separates the shower standing area from the rest of the bathroom (flooding!) however the drainage worked perfectly so no flooding here.
The Wifi worked well too, but it was only free for 30 minutes - thus 4 stars instead of 5. After that you had to pay (I think it was 3 or 4 pounds for a day) but this was all explained in the prominently displayed hotel literature (along with hotel restaurant menus and prices) so there was no sneakiness to it.
All staff members (like all the people I encountered in Norwich) were friendly and welcoming.
Some previous reviewers mentioned noise from nearby clubs but I wasn't disturbed in any way.
All in all a pleasant stay and I have no reason to go anywhere else in my next visit.
