Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leakaren Excellent room!
Excellent sized room! Very friendly and helpful staff! Hotel was great would deffently stop there again !
However the hotel backed onto a football ground and used the football clubs parking, as holiday inn doesn't have it's own carpark( only disabled spaces outside the front)Just hope they notify people when it's a match day! :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FoxeynMinxy Convention stay was really relaxing
Stayed here for our annual convention. Had a lovely relaxing stay and the staff were lovely and very helpful. Our room was very nice and we were upgraded at no cost on arrival, which was a lovely surprise. The beds are comfortable, nice lounge area in reception. The breakfast choice was excellent and so was the food. We ate in the restaurant for one evening and enjoyed it. The location is great for walking into the town to find other bars and restaurants. Would recommend a stay here. Thank you very much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by footballfan66 Excellent!
This was our second stay. My wife and I were greeted by friendly and courteous staff. They answered all my questions. The room was comfortable and clean. The bonus was a fantastic view of the pitch. The hotel's location is a great base for exploring the city and beyond. A retail park is opposite the football ground and hotel. The riverside bars are just five minutes walk away. The city centre is a short walk away. If you travel by rail, the hotel is literally just around the corner. We plan to stay more times!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joep1504 Pleasant stay
Thank you very much for the upgrade to a pitch view room last Saturday, it was very good of you knowing my girlfriend was heavily pregnant and may not have been able to watch te match. We were very happy about that. We will definately be coming back in April and will use your hotel again. The food was brilliant quality and came out in a more that satisfactory time but we felt it was too pricey for what is was, as we're the prices at the bar. The staff were very helpful and had some personality which was pleasing for us. It made us feel very welcome, not surprisingly though because we had read the reviews before we went and everybody comments on how nice the staff are or scores them well.
Joe and Adriana.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Agetaing Short stay but no issues
Genuinely wonderfully comfortable bed, blackout curtains and silent which is ideal. Spacious room and incredibly neat and tidy. Good powerful shower. Minor complaint might be the noisy aircon but as it was so efficient it could be turned off overnight with no problems. You do have to pay for parking and although we didn't have it, the breakfast seemed expensive but for a one-night post-wedding place to stay it was basically faultless and a pleasant surprise in terms of comfort.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TsraTsar Fantastic Stay at a Great Hotel
Stayed here 27 July 2013. Hotel is very modern/contemporary and is adjacent Norwich City football stadium. In a quiet residential area. But, can imagine it's pretty noisy on 'Match Days'. I understand that some of the top floor rooms look directly into the stadium. Upon check-in I was recognised as a Platinum Rewards Club customer and was upgraded to 'The Nest' suite. An excellent double room with separate living room and office/work area. This room/suite is the largest on the top floor but does not look into the stadium. The reception staff were very polite and very knowledgeable of the local area. Breakfast was good and fresh. All eggs are cooked to order apart from the scrambled egg which is on the hot plates with other breakfast items. This was my first time in Norwich and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn as it is only a 5 minute walk to the bars/restaurants at the riverside leisure complex across the road. Also, it is only a 10 minute walk to the castle & city centre. Was a pretty lively weekend in the city as 'Gay Pride' was going on the weekend we stayed. Would recommend the HI Norwich.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Slynch An excellent hotel in a great location
I stay at this hotel regularly for work, and it is excellent - clean rooms, helpful staff, and a good location close to the city centre, or if you're a runner like me close to the local country parks.

Our second time for one night stay .Lovely, spacious and modern rooms, really impressed. A good view over the football stadium which pleased my husband as it was his birthday! Staff really helpful, and nor far to walk into the city/riverside. We didn't eat at the hotel this time, but have in the past and was good. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Deliafan A very enjoyable stay
We stay here every year so that we can visit Delias (Smith) restaurant which is situated in the same building.We always have a great stay at the Holiday Inn in Carrow road. The reception staff are very helpful and friendly and our executive room on the sixth floor was really quiet , spacious with a very comfortable bed.
We came on the train and the station is just a five minute walk.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by talavera99 Noisy hotel
Stayed here 3 nights on business.
Got woken up by traffic at 6 and cleaners at 6.30
Told its quieter at back of hotel but no offer to move me was made when I complained.
room is a good size - the only selling point for hotel
Breakfast is poor - food didnt look good - milk was off
Probably wouldnt stay again if it wasnt a preferred hotel for my employer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gavlaar great location and comfort
to be honest, this wasn't my first choice of hotel, but after a disastrous start to my weekend at another hotel in the city, i changed my plans, and carried on my stay in norwich here.....
check in was great...friendly and helpful. parking was terrible because of a conference at the football stadium, but we were helped out with this predicament. the room was clean and quiet and cool..just what we wanted.
the only downside was breakfast.......what was available was ok....the staff didnt really want to make anyone welcome, but were just there, huffing and puffing through the motions. we did arrive at 9:30 to eat, which gave us half an hour to eat, but there wasn't an awful lot left so we just made do with what was there........and when the ten o'clock deadline came...the shutters came across and it was over!
all in all though, a great location and i would come back again to stay if i return to norwich.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 HI Norwich City - May/Jun 13
I stayed at the HINC for a period of 6 weeks for business with a group of colleagues.
The hotel team couldn't have been more accommodating in terms of our late booking of the meeting room most evenings and for serving our dinners so we could continue working.
They were attentive to our needs and I would recommend the hotel on the basis of the staff alone.
The hotel rooms with a view over the footbal ground were a nice bonus, particularly as we caught the end of the season and a few matches!
Thanks for making such a long period away from home bearable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by r1csm1th Excellent hotel
Having stopped in this hotel just over 25 times in the last 6-7 months I've been in a lot of rooms and been through most of the menu.
This hotel is in my opinion one of the best Holiday Inns in the country - it is well decorated, has excellent facilities, great food, friendly staff and comfortable rooms.
There are a couple of things that they could improve upon:
- Sometimes if busy the person greeting you on breakfast seats you and then goes to seat the next person. They don't handover to someone else so sometimes you never get asked if you want coffee or tea. Its pretty rare but does tend to happen when they are busy. You just need to shout out and they will serve you.
- As a Platinum member you sometimes get upgraded to an Exec room which comes with additional toiletries, still and sparkling water and a couple of kit-kats. This is great. On the occasions where no exec rooms are available you get a basket with the same things in - unfortunately this doesn't get topped up daily like the exec rooms so. So not only are you in a standard room because there were no exec rooms available but you also don't get the same perks after your first night. It would be good if this were topped up daily.
As you can see these are really small things, the staff are lovely and it is an excellent hotel. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone stopping in Norwich.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Millie2607 Another Great Stay.
I have just returned from another stay and I cannot praise this hotel enough. We have stayed there many many times before and cannot think of any reason to stay anywhere else in the city.
My husband and I go there for time out away from work for the weekend often and we have always been treated by all the staff very well from the moment we check in to checking out. The rooms have always been spotless and staff very polite.
So if you are looking for a place to stay look no further and thats what I have always told friends and family in the past and they always agree. A big FIVE STARS to all at the hotel and thank you.
See you again soon.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay at the Holiday Inn . The room was comfortable and well equipped. As I was taking part in the Norwich 100 mile bike ride I needed a good nights sleep and the room we were assigned was very quiet and comfortable . The staff were very helpful, I would recommend the Hotel and will be back soon .

Good central location to visit Cromer and the Broads over the Spring Bank weekend
Bigger than normal room with 2 double beds. Could see a few amateur football games happening inside the Carrow Road stadium directly from our room.
We had to wait a while after placing our order for dinner but worth the wait. Otherwise staff very attentive throughout the 2 night stay. Overall a pleasant and comfortable stay.

I didn't enjoy the food but I am french. too basic and the service is really average. the front desk is better. nice stzff very helpfull but not really having thenknowledge of the City. Ordering a cab is easy even to go in town one mile...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Villan64 Superb Experience
I was here to see Aston Villa play Norwich with my wife and son. We arrived early, parked at the ground and were in the room by 11am. The room allocated had a view of the whole pitch which meant my wife could watch the game from the room while me and my son were in the ground. The bar staff were very friendly as was the banter with Norwich fans. The location was fantastic for walking in to Norwich city center the next day with the Riverside complex nearby for bars and restaurants. An all round great experience and one we will be repeating next season...as long as we both stay up !

Fantastic welcoming recent stay on a match day with my family, shame about the result! Great staff to welcome you as you arrive at reception. Bar staff work extremely hard on a match day and try to look after your every needs. Breakfast was exceptional, with plenty of choice,we particularly like the fruit section with fresh fruit, wild berries and unlimited melon for the kids. Thank you for another wonderful stay, see you soon!
