“Lovely East Anglia B&B”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

From the moment we arrived, we felt comfortable. Miranda gave us many tips and was a sweetheart. The room was clean; the bed was extremely comfortable; the campus was easy to navigate; the breakfast was delicious; and it was all very reasonably priced. Thank you to all the ladies in reception. We felt as if we were old friends. Unfortunately, I cannot remember everyone's name. A shout out to Marissa from the alumni office, who we enjoyed meeting very much.

The staff was very helpful and friendly, however the room itself is very basic. We were visiting our daughter who is a student at the university so this was the reason we stayed here. This facility is actually a dorm so don't expect a full service hotel with any luxuries. It was pretty quiet after the nightly campus pub crowd passed by. It is very convenient to on-campus activities if that is what you are looking for. It is not a convenient location for access to the town of Norwich. You must drive, bus, or taxi to town. The lodge is not easy to find if you are not familiar with the campus.

If you are looking for clean, basic housing on the UEA campus this place will fit the bill. Be sure to arrive during office hours.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Our staff want to ensure that your stay is a good experience of UEA. Although our rooms are in the centre of campus, they are very different from the student accommodation rooms. Our situation is ideal for guests who have business on campus and many of the rooms overlook the beautiful grounds and broad. These factors have meant that we have retained our Visit England five star campus rating for a second year.

I stayed in a single room and was happy with all the facilities provided. The room offered fair space, ironing board, internet, alarm clock, etc. It is the best option for dealing affairs at UEA, but you would feel a bit exiled if you want to get to know Norwich. However, expect to be living with students. The Broadview lodge is located in a large building of university accommodation, with all its inconveniences. I couldn't get proper sleep during my stay due to drunk students shouting in the middle of the night, every night! Anyway, service is very good. I arrived a Sunday night and was welcomed by a very nice and friendly lady. Breakfast at uni's kitchen gives you a good range of options.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with broad view!

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. I am so sorry that the students awoke you, but was pleased to read that your welcome was warm and friendly. It is our aim to offer all of our guests the best service that we can whilst they are with us, so that they have the best possible stay on campus. We are perhaps too far away to walk into Norwich, but a very frequent bus service is close by and a bus takes just approximately 20 minutes to reach Norwich city centre.

I stayed here for a conference in September and found the accommodation to be very basic. The single bed was not particularly comfortable and the shower room was set up so that as a tall man I could not fit under the shower head. There was a loud buzzing noise outside my bedroom door all night on the second night that I stayed which disrupted my sleep. The location is great for the University and the rooms cheap but it was not an enjoyable stay.

Thank you for your comments and I am so sorry that your sleep was disrupted when you stayed with us. I have investigated the cause of the 'buzzing' sound and have asked our Estates department to adjust the air flow system on our bedroom corridor since this appears to have been the source of the noise.

We stayed over night before the September open day. The rooms are basic but very clean, with nice toiletries and tea, coffee and biscuits etc. a mini fridge was a welcome surprise too. The shower room is basic, but we stayed to get an impression of life on campus and that was achieved. Waking up to such a beautiful view was wonderful. the campus is very green and landscaped with trees and hanging baskets. Breakfast was a short walk away and a nice touch were the umbrellas supplied in each room to use as you walked to breakfast. The breakfast in INTO cafe was good and the staff very friendly. Perhaps not up to holiday inn express standards, but we would stay again if the need arose.

Room Tip: Room 48 was nice and cool.

Staff were excellent, helpful & friendly, the room had everything you needed, was clean but basic. The noise was the worse thing, I could here guests coming & going all night & early morning. As I was near the lift the doors and The 'Ping' sound got on my nerves.

Thank you for your feedback concerning your September stay with us. New students join UEA each September and unfortunately their excitement tends to be rather exuberant at times. This usually settles down once studies begin. Our colleagues in Security are happy to help with any noise issues if guests call them from the phones in the bedrooms, and are very good at quietening students in a friendly and understanding manner to the benefit of our guests.
