We stayed here in May to attend a christening in norfolk. The room was tidy and ample space for a family of 4. Noise in the corridor was at times a bit noisy but you get that at hotels. The pub next door was ok but we didnt eat in here other than breakfast. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. For the money we couldnt complain and was ideal as on a budget.

We were staying in Norfolk for a few days. Been to quite a few prem inns before and this one was a good one. Very friendly welcome and a fast efficient check in with the usual excellent service. The room was very warm, but we'd been given a smallish fan so not too bad. Car park was busy, but there were a lot of things going on. I have been to prem inns with better rooms (esp bathrooms) but this was a minor draw back. Every thing worked, a shower, good TV and a cumfy bed..... no problems.

Room Tip: Take your own fan if you can as the rooms can get warm, you can't open the window much and the r...

We stayed here on two occasions in August. Both times the reception staff were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is sandwiched between major roads, so some traffic noise is unavoidable, but not too bad. The room was clean, with a reasonable amount of space for a family of four. This is not one of the newer Premier Inns and there are signs of wear and tear. We ate in the adjoining restaurant. The waitress was very friendly on both occasions. There was a good range of food to choose from and we all enjoyed our meals. On the second occasion the food took a very long time to prepare and we were sat for an hour before the first course was served and well over two hours in total but despite this we felt abated because the waitress was so helpful and did a tremendous job of keeping us onside. The breakfast was cooked to order and there was a fair range of cereals, jams etc.

On the first visit the room was entirely adequate and there were no issues. Second time round the weather was slightly warmer and the room as consequence was incredibly stifling and uncomfortable to be in - even with the desk fan going it was difficult to sleep. The window would only open an inch and so no fresh air was able to enter the room. None of us had a good nights sleep though we decided not to try and cash in on the Premier promise and made no complaint - probably because all the staff we encountered were so kind and nice that it seemed a bit churlish to do so. This of course would not be a problem during the winter months, but whilst it is warm outside you may be wise to choose a hotel with air conditioning and this Premier Inn would be wise to invest in improving the facility for those rare warm summer days.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms may be cooler!

On arrival the car-park early evening found it was quite busy took a while to get a space. This was soon forgotten by the excellent warm welcome on arrival in reception. The rooms were modern, clean and the highest standard you can rely on from Premier Inn. After a long journey we decided to eat at Table Table next door. Excellent restaurant, lovely staff and food was good too. Even though near a road this did not deter from an excellent nights sleep. Table table for breakfast which was very good and the staff were all genuinely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Always ready to help with a smile and very curtious. Highley recommend this Premier Inn. Parking next day was quieter this was only negative when busy. Otherwise fabulous stay.

I have always liked Premier Inns, staying in them frequently on business over the years. This was my first stay for about 18 months since I semi retired, and also my first stay at this particular hotel. Customer service was great, facilities were good as usual, but I was also pleasantly surprised to see part free, and also reasonably priced internet access, which I had always felt was extortionate in Premier Inns in the past.

This Premier was mainly chosen for its proximity to Norwich airport, but it was a very pleasant stay. Although the surrounding location was sited outside of town, and the traffic was fairly heavy, it was not too noisy.

The rooms booked were very clean, with fresh linen & towels, and good value.
