I stayed at the the Premier Inn in Norfolk and I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. The bedroom was very clean and comfortable and you are offered a choice of pillow which is a nice touch.

Having stayed in a Premier Inn before we thought rooms, breakfast etc would all be quite similar.

However when we walked into the room, having booked a family room we were pretty upset to see that the fourth bed was a mattress on the floor. This would be okay if you have a child upto say 10 bur for my teenagers this was not good. First of all it was not long enough and also the mattress was not of the same thickness so very uncomfortable.

We also had issues with the breakfast (or lack of it) on our second morning. The first morning was great - everything was plentiful and beautifully laid out. The second morning was very different. There was only one choice of milk, not enough cups, no spoons, only bread (no croissants, crumpets etc). The staff (all two of them!) were completely run off their feet as apparantly management had not picked up that it was half term even though the hotel was full and would have notified the restaurant in plenty of time. Not sure if would stay again and I would suggest anyone staying with children above 10 to check out the bed situation.

Conveniently located, I chose this Premier Inn on price and price alone, having never stayed in a Premier Inn before. Very friendly and helpful staff. My room was about what I expected - a bit spartan with less than good quality chairs and coffee table. But the room was larger than I expected and the bed more comfortable than I expected. The bathroom was absolutely immaculate - top marks here. The TV was a bit small by current standards.

I slept well, the room did not let in any traffic or outside noises. I ate breakfast at the adjacent restaurant and I was quite delighted with the quality and value of the cooked breakfast.

I stayed a total of one night and overall everything was perfectly fine. I won't rush back as I prefer a hotel room that I can really relax in and feel "at home" whereas Premier Inn offers a comfortable clean bed for the night in a more basic and functional style.

We've spent 4 days at this Premier Inn and everything was perfect.
We were expecting to have some problem with the parking, as they told us (at the moment that we made the reservation) that they don't have enough parking space for all their guests. But even using the restaurant car park we've never had any problem. We stayed during a working week with no event at the nearby Showground.
We stayed very well, the room was clean and brand new-looklike.

We stayed there for one night during a working weekend. Staff were very friendly. Price was reasonable considering Saturday night.

Dinner in connecting restaurant. Good food, fast and friendly service. Nice ambience, did the job.

Note this is slightly older premier inn style (as if Sept 2012) so not quite the modern fitted style you get in new hotels. but rooms were very spacious and comfortable,

Beds were comfortable,

Bathroom had Lack of hot water during a 30-min period in the morning which was resolved by 8am.

Good option if you need a comfortable night this side of Norwich
