“Lovely weekend break”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

My husband took me for a wedding anniversary weekend break to Norwich. We stayed in the Nelson Premier inn which is located perfectly right on the side of the river. The staff on reception were very welcoming and helpful.We had a riverside room which we could watch the boats sailing down the river. The room and bathroom was spacious and spotlessly clean. When we went for breakfast in the ground floor restaurant we were shown by the manager where all the drinks and food was located and could order specials e.g poached egg or vegetarian sausage if required. All the food was cooked lovely and you could eat as much as you liked.We have stayed at Premier inn's before and have never had a bad experience but can say that this is the best we have stayed in.Norwich is a lovely place to visit and recommend the Thai on the river restaurant which is a Thai boat moored on the river. Lots of bars and restaurants on the side of the river to choose also.

Room Tip: Riverside rooms are a must

There rooms have considerably been improved over the yrs and they are great for overnight stays and business trips. Not a holiday destination I agree but they know their market! Clean rooms, comfortable beds, flat screens rooms presented well and well thought out re your needs. Everything there! Access to facilities and food is good, this is an excellent location and I had a lovely room over the river. Only improvement would be their menu choice for gluten free products, not clear was given a chef folder to make my selection but this was hard to read - menu with gf on it would have been easier!

Room Tip: Room over the river side the best rather than the car park, avoid rooms over large fans which as noi...

For £39 what you pay on the saver it's really good value for money, the rooms are well fitted out for a basic nights stay with ports connecting to the TV for HDMI, PC and various other inputs, great for when you want to hook up external devices. With easy access to the train station and the town, overall we enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

This eas the first time I've used a premier inn so didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was great!All staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and a good size.. the batroom was massive! We had a room with a view of the river and station which was nice. Although being next to a main road the noise was minimal and didn't get in the eay of having a grest nights sleep. Booking well in advance secured the room for just £29! I would definitely use this hotel again, and try others in the chain.
