My husband and I had booked this room at the last minute and, knowing the area, thought that the Earlham Road would provide a pleasant environment as well as being convenient.Well, our eyes were opened! Nestling in the lights from the Catholic Cathedral was the most seedy, filthy and downright menacing accommodation you could imagine.
The lobby and rooms were filthy (detritus banked up against the skirting boards). I peeled back a truly frightening set of bed linen (think olive green and mustard swirls in a 'textured' nylon fabric) and we fled!
I do regret not taking pictures, we were on our way to a family wedding, and while the tale of our encounter at the Governor's was good, photos would have only enhanced it. Goodness only knows what the other 'guests' were doing.
Anyway, don't let this put you off Norwich, as it says on the tag line 'A Fine City'!
