    Booked through late rooms for a week's work in Norwich. Hotel is on two sites. Main building where the reception is and breakfast is served and an annexe a block away. I was in the annex. My room was downstairs and, perhaps because I live in a quiet area, I found the traffic noise kept me up all night. I...

    I got put in room 12 which is basically the loft. Once through (the broken) bedroom door, the stairs up to the body of the room were frighteningly steep - don't drink much alcohol if you get put in there!The room was less than basic and I had to share a poor standard of bathroom. People had there room doors...

    On a budget and need a clean friendly hotel then this is the one for you. If your planning a special trip to Norwich you'll probably be a bit disappointed. Try to get an en-suite if you can . It's convenient for the station and I understand there is car parking. It's a few minutes walk to the city centre....

    We chose this hotel because it was very close to the railway station. Judging by the amenities is was no more than a 2 star. There was no shampoo or cream rinse. the bathroom was terrible. Lots of mold, the mirror was so high that I couldn't reach to see myself in it. The shower was big enough, but the...

    I didn't spend a lot of time in this hotel, well the annexe of it which is a couple of minutes walk away. The steep steps into which are quite steep, and my room (I think this was 21) was right next to the front door to the annexe. Easy to find, yes, but when people arrived and left it...

    Nice enough place. Friendly, helpful staff. Room OK. Ours not overlooking the river which was a shame. No free parking but streets nearby had 2 hours parking until after 1830 after which it was OK to stay until ten the next day. Which we were able to take advantage of as we checked in at 1630. Ideally placed for the...

    Stayed here for two nights over the August Bank Holiday. Great location, I had a river view. Also near the station and city centre. Friendly staff and plenty of tea and coffee. Clean room, comfy bed. Freeview TV in room and en-suite.

    This hotel is in a great location for being close to the centre of the city and the train station. However we were put in the annex building, and had to go through a back gate to get to our room which was very small! This meant we didn't even have to enter the annex building (it's just another building...
