“one night stay”

Very good hotel room I stayed in and bed was very comfortable to sleep in plus location was good just outside norwich station. Would recommend this hotel to friends. Plenty to see around this city as well.

Stayed here a few times. Perfect city centre location with bars, restaurants, cinema etc all walkable. Best premier inn I've stayed in. Situated on the river, great bar and restaurant on site , staff very helpful, child friendly and free car park - arrive and park early to go shopping before check in ;-)

We booked this hotel for a short Bank Holiday break in Norwich, and weren't disappointed. The location is ideal for a short city break, and is within walking distance of many great restaurants, bars and shops.

Upon arrival, we found ample free parking in the complex, and were greeted by very friendly and helpful reception staff. They were eager to answer any questions we may have, and provided all of the information one would expect to receive and more. The cleaning staff were equally as friendly and willing to help out with additional condiments or other room requirements.

Considering its central location, the hotel didn't suffer too much noise from the nearby main road and the room was fully air conditioned. An additional heater was provided but we had no use for it. Large screen TV in the room and generally very tidy and welcoming. The decor was immaculate and I had no complaints about the cleanliness of the room or its facilities.

The only downside to the hotel is the WiFi access. You get 30 minutes free, and thereafter must purchase a WiFi pass. It is my understanding though, that this is a Premier Inn policy, so it's not fair to blame this particular branch or its staff for this slight shortcoming. It is worth noting though that users of smartphones can enjoy 4G signal here, so tethering or personal WiFi hotspot is the way to go if you need Internet access.

We opted for the full English breakfast (which is served in the Table Table restaurant / pub annex) and weren't disappointed. The breakfast was a buffet-style arrangement, with the food plentiful and hot. The coffee was good quality filtered beans, and every effort was made to ensure that one received a perfect service. No complaints about the breakfast at all!

All in all, this was a very pleasurable stay and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others looking for an ideally-located hotel for a short city break or business visit.

We had been driving all day and despaired of finding a good place to stay when we came across a Premier Inn in Norwich - unfortunately full, but the receptionist rang the Nelson and booked us in there, gave us a map with directions. We found it easily, and were overwhelmed by the friendly and helpful staff and the comfort of our room. We then had a meal in the restaurant, and again were impressed by the caring attitudes of the staff. The food was excellent, so we decided to stay an extra night.
