“Nothing premier about the stay”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

Room was no better than a Travelodge, price was good as it was on offer, Car Parking can be busy as the pub customers tend to use it.

This was our first stay in a premier inn for several years, having used Travelodge on our last few trips this was a very welcome change, receptionist was polite friendly and helpful, room was vey clean and tidy.
NO Travelodge mould in the bathroom HOORAY!!!
Good location with a Table Table restuarant next door.
If we had to pick fault it would be that the sound proofing could be a little better otherwise i would say very good value for money.
As a comparison to our recent Travelodge visits this has done enough to put us off Travelodges for quite a while.

we stayed here whilst visiting friends and going to the dinosaur adventure park at Lenwade, easy to come and go. Breakfast had a wide variety to choose from and we stuck to continental, staff very friendly and very helpful, all very clean and exceptionally quiet considering location so close to dual carridgeway, room spacious, bathroom bright and also very clean, even a choice of pillows now firmer or softer! has a security chain on the door which is great for piece of mind when you have little ones in the room.

Room Tip: the new extension very quiet and furthest from the road.

Excellent budget hotel. Clean rooms, efficient and polite staff and very good food. All you need for somewhere to stay for easy access to the showground and Norwich, with a park and ride just down the road.
I have never stayed in a Premier Inn before and was so impressed with every aspect. Infact the staff were far more helpful and polite then in some of the more expensive hotels we have stayed in before.

This Premier Inn is, unsurprisingly, like most others in layout, facilities and decor. The bathroom is more modern than most, and there's a mixer tap over the rectangular sink which is so much better than separate hot and cold taps.
The "Table Table" restaurant on site has a wide selection of menu items, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Food prices are reasonable and there's a nice outdoor seating area that was usable even in late March because of the unusually warm weather.
Reception staff were particularly pleasant and friendly too - another Premier Inn I would recommend.
