“Ideal for the Showground”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

A clean well run Premier Inn adjacent to the showground, bus stop outside, easy access to Norwich by public transport of car.
Good choice of freshly cooked breakfast and help yourself coffee and continental style

we stayed here to visit the antique fair at the showground next door. the room was lovely and clean and, because it was hot, they had provided a plain duvet cover to use as a sheet instead of the actual duvet, very thoughtful.

I arrived on business at 22:55, the receptionist was welcoming and friendly. He stored my bag while I popped to table table to get some emails done on their Wifi.

Although the room was a comfortable 45 degrees! The room was very clean. Much better than a holiday in . May be avoid if traveling in summer with young children.

The breakfast at table table was better than a Marriott hotel. Simple quick and easy, and great customer service. Some top end hotels could learn something from this premier inn. Well done.

My partner and I booked in last minute because we were going to a family party and didn't fancy driving several hours back home late at night. I think we were charged premium price for the room because apparently it was the last one and it was last minute! Nice, clean room which was fitted with a fan to keep it cool. Without it, the room got warm pretty quickly but that's to be expected in the summer. Tea and coffee facilities are in the room but we didn't use these. You could do with a small mini fridge in the rooms, saves trekking all the way to reception to get chilled water at £1.50 per bottle from the vending machine! The vending machines have snacks too if you were feeling hungry. We slept well, the PI offers soft or firm pillows and great black out curtains which helped a lot. Friendly chatty lads on reception too so all in all, a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Advisable to get a lower numbered room. We were in 124 and it was a substantial walk away from recep...

We stopped here for one night as we were going to Snetterton in the morning, the Hotel was about 30mins from Snett. Firstly we managed to park ok there were about 4 spaces left at 7.00pm. The girl who checked us in was very friendly & good even though she was training. The room was clean & a good size. The window was open & the fan was on to cool the room down on arrival which I thought was great. The room was hot as it would be at home, as lets be honest we can moan it didn't have air con but most of us don't at home! Took a while to get to sleep with it being warm, we also slept with the window open. After reading reviews I didn't think this would be possible due to road noise but it was fine not as bad as expected. The bed was one of the comfiest I've ever slept in. When it came to check out the lady was chatty and friendly. Overall a really happy and pleasant stay! :)
We also ate in the Restaurant next door which was all good too.

We booked two rooms at this hotel as it was close to the UEA. As a regular PI visitor I am yet to get the type of bed that Lenny Henry seems to get although they have tried to flog me one for £1000.
I checked in online and this time it worked perfectly - got our keys and to the room in no time. It is an older type PI but clean and tidy. Hot but a fan and sheet in case the duvet was not required. I find it difficult to understand how it can be hot when you have a window that opens, possibly the design of the older hotels. Did not stop us sleeping, nor did the traffic noise from the slip road and A47. We knew about this when booking. Overall not a bad stop over.

Room Tip: Both sides have road noise. If you have mobility problems, there is no lift, so make sure you book a...

Rather expensive as I booked it late. Very clean and quiet, with comfy beds as per usual. One bugbear is that as in most Prem Inns there are no plugs close to the head end of the bed to plug a phone into. Room was also very hot. There was a fan provided, but even so it was quite uncomfortable. Breakfast was excellent as per usual. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
It was booked for a business trip, so I was not too bothered about the price, but if I were paying myself I would not have paid 110 pounds, even if it was quite last minute.
