“Fairly basic, a bit dated, but very friendly, with a great breakfast”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

The Abbey is conveniently situated in a quiet road five minutes from the station. My room was a bit on the small side, but good value. The furniture and décor were a bit dated, but perfectly clean. The proprietors were very friendly and chatty, and the cooked breakfast was tasty and of a good quality. I would be happy to stay here again.

I stayed there on the second weekend of January. I was very pleased with the whole experience. The bedroom was spotless, a little small but very homely and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was really tasty, there was a lot on offer and there was always enough of everything. David and Mandy are extremely accommodating and friendly and couldn't have been any more helpful. A fantastic stay overall.

went to Norwich for 3 nights for the Norwich Beer Festival, the Abbey Hotel was lovely, the moment arrived there i was greeted warmly, the owners are very nice people,

I stayed in a room with a single bed, the room was small but very comfortable, very clean etc, the TV had freeview,

the breakfast i had in the mornings was delicious, the best breakfast i have ever had

the location was fantastic, only a few minutes from Norwich Train Station which meant i could easily get a bus into town

overall i had a fantastic stay and i would definitely stay at the Abbey Hotel again :-)

Trip advisor told me what i wanted to hear so i booked. It was for 2 nights, Friday and Saturday. One twin room and one single. They weren't en-suite but the shower and toilet were bang next door. It was absolutely spotless, the beds were comfy and the breakfast was bang on as well. It was run by two really friendly people who helped with anything we needed, even finding somewhere for one of our friends to stay. It was 5-10 minutes walk into the centre with more bars and restaurants a tad closer and a few minutes to the train station. A definite stay again for me as it was real value for money, brilliant.

I read about the Abbey Hotel on trip advisor and was not disappointed. The price is great and the place is spotless. The number of bathrooms throughout was good and the one we shared (with one other guest) was large, clean, and had a great shower.

The owners were so gracious and helpful, we regretted that they didn't have room for us when we spontaneously decided to stay in Norwich an extra day. They were instrumental in helping us find another place close by, though.

I would definitely recommend this establishment and would stay here again.

Reviewed 11 August 2012

Stayed one night, first week in August, the lady who runs it was so helpful and charming, every query answered, 'Of course', the decor and furniture very dated but spotlessly clean, the breakfast was delicious and served very hot. I even got to see the immaculate kitchen. Lovely fresh coffee, with refilled catetiere offered. Would stay there again just because of the service offered. Found the mattress too soft but guess that is individual taste. Very conveniently situated easy walk into town. Can see the football stadium from there too for anyone interested in that, not far from British Rail Station. The welcome and service could not have been better.
