We'd stayed at a Premier Inn recently and found the room to be far too warm, so for our one night stay in Norwich, I rang ahead and for a cooler room.

We would definitely recommend the Norwich Nelson City Centre Hotel. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. It was a very relaxing break. The food was excellent and the service was friendly. The best weekend away in a long time and looking forward to visiting next year.

Nice and clean as usual. Good location right near the Riverside area and accompanying shopping park. Lots of parking on site. About 10 minute walk into the city centre. Also if you are travelling in by train this is just opposite the station. Will definitely use again .

Stopping here for a long weekend. We stayed in the the newly opened wing - as always it was very clean, the rooms a good size and the staff very professional. The bar & restaurant actually looks like a proper pub rather than the usual Harvester style eatery - food, drink & service to a good standard. This Premier Inn...

Staying in Norwich for the weekend at another Premier Inn, we called in for a drink and to ask the best way to get there. We were greeted firstly by the very friendly Assistant Manager who offered to call us a taxi. Unfortunately, there was an hour's wait! Therefore, the Operation's Manager, Bradley, offered to take us!! That is what...
