“Perfect location, nice hotel”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

We stayed at this hotel for one night while in Norwich for a birthday night out. The hotel is located right across the street from the train station and provides free car parking. It is a great location for the Riverside and a short walk into the city centre. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and bars within walking distance. We paid £77 for a double room without breakfast on the Premier Inn website. The room was clean and had tea facilites, a bottle opener, hairdyer, and extra pillows. We needed an iron and ironing board and these were brought to our room from reception straight away. The satff were very friendly and helpful. The room looked out over the river which was nice and it wasnt too noisy even on a saturday night. We would stay here again,

Room Tip: You definitely want a room facing the river.

Stayed here for work.

The location is quite good as there are a lot of restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk.

Rooms are average, bed was quite creaky. Bathroom smelt of industrial bleach, towels were very rough. There was a portable heater which was nice as the weather was freezing. Housekeeping wasn't great, my bins were not emptied once during my 4nt stay.

Breakfast was standard, simply fry up, pastries and bread, cereals and yoghurt. Coffee was not great but was ok.

Staff are polite and friendly.

This hotel is conveniently located and easy to find right by the river and only a few minutes walk to the city centre attractions and restaurants. The welcome was warm and genuine and staff were obliging and always ready to help.
The room was large and spacious, the bed very comfortable and even the towels in the bathroom were large enough to actually wrap around yourself!
We didn't eat there as the menu was basically just good pub food, but breakfast was excellent. Whatever you want for breakfast, it was probably there:- cereals, toast, patisserie, fruits and full cooked. And there wasn't the breakfast scrummage you get in some hotels where you worry whether or not you'll actually find a table, as a member of staff greeted you and took you to your table. We would definitely stay there again.
I'd only one niggle; given it was such cold weather when we arrived, it would have been nice for the heating to have been on instead of us doing it when we arrived.

Room Tip: See if you can get a river view room

One of the best places in Norwich for disabled access and excellent service for special needs. Staff are totally trained and educated in the needs for disability awareness and are always so very helpful to suit individuals. Blending of food if required and always on top form with a welcoming and supportive environment.
One thing that could benefit such a diverse and fresh venue for total inclusion and equality would be an appropriate adult changing room and hoist.
To add as well the Costa coffee shop is equally welcoming, comfortable and accessible. Three cheers for an amazing, sociable, inclusive and professional business. More people need to know about you all.
