Wonderful, Quaint Hotel ”

They upgraded us to a larger suite. It’s a lovely hotel within walking distance to the cathedral. Very clean, nice staff. For travelers with large luggage- there may be some steps/stairs, you may have to deal with but that’s the only downside I can say.

Pleasant but unexceptional”

Customer service, food
Occasional lack of joined-up thinking, walk-in room rate very high

I had a pleasant 1-night stay on business, my room had all the facilities I expected but was rather anonymous. I took 3 room-service meals, all served promptly, food good. Staff courteous and helpful, but on occasion lacked joined-up thinking - just after I checked in, the smoke alarm in my room went off - it was a test, no one warned me! On checking out, I was helped with my luggage to my car by a friendly duty manager, who forgot to tell me I would need a code to get out of the car park. Problems with my booking, I presented my agoda voucher on arrival, this was not recognised. I was charged again, and when I cancelled my planned second night's stay (for business reasons, not because of the hotel) no one knew what to do. After I had written a e-mail on returning home, I got the correct refund. Customers should book on line - I did, through agoda, and paid £80 for room and breakfast. The walk-in rate for that night would have been £125 and the nominal standard rate was no less than £192 - I felt the room was a good £80 value but no more. Finally, the hotel should make sure guests get bomb-proof directions to the building if coming by car - Norwich is very hard to find your way around!
