We love the city of Norwich, so thought we would give this place a try. As expected, the usual comfy bed awaited us, together with all the usual expected luxuries. The place is ideally suited to give either a slightly up-hill walk to the town centre...just a 5-10 minute walk, or a stroll along the riverside to the retail park...

First thing is that the check in and check out staff were really nice, and helpful. The room was fine and the bed and pillows are really comfortable, as always with Premier Inns. There are loads of charge points, which is a big plus. And parking was free. But it did cost £92, which I thought was getting up there....

The Hotel is sited on the banks of the river. The location is ideal for trips into the city center either by bus or car. Reception staff excellent. Room excellent. If you're not dining out then the restaurant is adequate but a limited menu. Recommended

Pretty much all you would expect from a Premier Inn, good service, comfortable room, good breakfast (for which we had paid a supplement). Great location for the station and the city. Only downside was the inability of the bar to serve a decent coffee, despite it being served in Costa branded cups.

Although we're only local we tend to book a room at the Nelson rather then having the grief of trying to get a taxi home in the early hours on a Saturday.....much easier! The hotel was as we've always found it, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We stayed in the new extension this time which did feel very new and...

The staff were very friendly and professional. The room and breakfast were fine but there is no safe or fridge in the room. I would recommend this hotel and would advise that you use the app to book a room early to get the very best low room rates.

The hotel was in a good location for, 10 minute walk to the centre but right next to riverside and the football stadium. The only slight issue we had was, we had met up with some friends, we took them back to the bar for a nightcap but the bar had just shut and we couldn't get served
