Premier Inn Norwich Nelson City Centre Hotel
Ranked #3 of 50 Hotels in Norwich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2014

This Premier Inn is easy to find. With a large, private car park for guests, all facilities are good. Cheerful, welcoming and helpful staff at all times. No fuss, quiet rooms here, ensure a good night's sleep. The restaurant is well run, efficient with a good selection and choice. Prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere completely relaxing.
We've found this Inn a very good place to stay and will doubtless return in the future.

We had a University reunuion. The hotel had great rooms easy central parking a good retaurant pleasant seating areas including a really nice verandah adjacent to the river. The staff should be used by Premier to train the staff in their other hotels. They were excellent!

Most Premier Inns in cities are both difficult to get to, especially with one-way systems and can be difficult to park near. The Norwich Nelson is neither of these: our satnav took us straight to the door and we were amazed to find an enormous carpark (exclusively for premier inn guests) at the rear. We had no trouble parking at any time of day. The Nelson is right on the riverbank, with its own riverside walk and garden. The restaurant opens onto a riverside patio in nice weather.
Staff are welcoming, helpful and friendly and we had no trouble exchanging our ground floor room for an upstairs one with a river view.
The restaurant is a Table-Table, with a good selection of food available and the inn operates a meal-deal with reduced prices if you pre-order dinner and breakfast together.
We are fresh-air fiends, so had our window open at night. The city noise was noticeable, but not so loud that we were kept awake. Most noise was traffic, there was no loud pub/club noise, nor shouting/singing etc.
The hotel was extremely clean and well maintained, as was the car park and grounds.
Overall, we were impressed with the Norwich Nelson and would stay again.
We paid £29.00 (for two people) for a one-night stay, booking in advance online.

The hotel was very convenient for the station. The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel was clean and efficient. I would certainly stay there again. Norwich cathedral is nearby and there are regular buses into the main city centre..

This was our first stay with Premier Inns, and we only stayed one night, but we were very impressed with the location, welcome, cleanliness and efficiency of the hotel. We got a very good room deal, and would recommend the Nelson Norwich to anyone.
