This is not up to the standard you would expect from a holiday Inn. There are other hotels in Norwich that will cost less and be better

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NorfolkNovice Tired look and bathroom mould offset by excellent staff
The notice at reception about forthcoming improvements did not help the disappointment at the tired look of the public areas, the amount of mould in an outdated bathroom and the feeling that this was a North Sea oil transit facility opened up to the general public. Four star hotel? No way.
A single upright chair in the room meant that any relaxing had to be done in the busy reception area. Are we obliged to sit on our beds to watch TV?
My sympathy goes to the staff who could not have been more helpful, no matter how minor the request. The food was well cooked, well presented and varied, especially the main courses for dinner.
Our stay did nothing to make me want to stay in another Holiday Inn. Once bitten....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pair211 Well past its sell by date!
Was very dissapointed at check in to find that the pool area was closed for renovation for a month. This should have been mentioned on the web site.
Overall the hotel is well over due for the renovation that it is presently in the mids of.
The good point about the hotel were the staff, they were friendly and efficient so after the renovation is finished it has prospects.
Would I return, probably not

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bolly 1 Always a comfortable bed, rooms not all to same standard within pricing ra
We have stayed here several times. The swimming pool is pleasant although the changing rooms do tend to whiff.
The rooms are usually pleasant and this is the first time I have heard the aeroplanes warmning up, which was extremely loud. I will never willingly accept a 5th floor room again.
The bed was very comfortable as always, but the room in comparison to those i have been in before was disappointing

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Burns CB Dreadful, dirty, noisy, reward night experience
Second attempt at review as they wont respond or publish the first one, this hotel is a disgrace rooms hallways and entrance exceptionally dirty sheets not changed rude unhelpful staff, covers about everything. Being refurbished is not an excuse for giving up on cleaning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent service
We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The reception staff were polite and cheerful. Our room was huge which is always a bonus! The room was clean and well presented. The bar staff were attentive and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the dining room, which was pleasant and comfy. The menu was varied and well priced. The food was excellent, well cooked and hot on arrival. All staff again couldn't do enough to help. Breakfast was good with a variety of dishes to suit all. All in all a very good stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Serenata Perfect weekend
I am a regular guest at the Slough HI, on business, so knew what to expect, although I was a little concerned about it being next to the airport. I needn't have worried however, as from the moment we walked in I knew we were going to have a pleasant stay.
The staff were courteous and welcomed me as a Gold Elite member. Although it wasn't mentioned in check-in the room was an upgrade, which was a real pleasure. It was one of the refurbished rooms and very comfortable. The bed was the '2 singles zipped together' type so was huge and very comfortable - we both slept well.
The breakfast was the same range of items you would expect from a hotel and the fried eggs were cooked more or less to order from beside the hot plates. The black pudding was excellent - not to oily and not too dry. The evening meal was fairly standard for a hotel - good but not awesome.
When we mentioned were were taking a boat on the broads for the day the waiter recommended a pub to aim for.
We will certainly be going back next time we have a weekend away.
