The Nelson Hotel is in a great location, right near the railway station and only ten minutes walk into the city.

There is also a free car park....

Stayed for 2 nights in January. In a good location for exploring Norwich. Found all the places we wanted to go were within walking distance. Our room was at the bottom overlooking the river which was very nice. Only downside was that we were very close to reception and as such, lots of people had to open and close the...

I've stayed in a variety of Premier Inns and they have all been of good quality. Norwich Nelson is no exception, reasonable price, comfortable bed, good breakfast and helpful staff. Apparently my colleagues had large bathrooms, mine was fairly small but I was compensated by having a balcony overlooking the river. Stay at Premier Inn, you know what you're going...

Love Premier Inn, always guaranteed a great nights sleep. Booked in advance so got a good deal, had breakfast too, plenty of choice, although it could have been warmer, which I mentioned to reception on checking out.

Usually these hotels are consistently good. Just happened that the shower didn't work on this occasion.Nice location. Quiet which bearing in mind it is next to the club area in Norwich, was a pleasant surprise.
