Far better than my previous experience.
I spend half of my working life in IHG hotels and after my previous stay in a hotel elsewhere in the UK. It was refreshing to stay at this one.
Firstly the car park is shared with a supermarket
and a sports centre where the local 'fitness freaks' park as close to the centre so they do have to walk too far (Ah bless them) and us hotel regulars usually vie for spaces far and away amongst the trollies!
Check in is very welcoming and they are a very friendly team on the front desk who check you in efficiently.
The room typical HIE but they have air-con in Norwich, unlike my previous one where you sweated the night away with a small fan for company! Don't worry about the chlorine smell from the swimming pool in the sports centre, it clears away very quickly. Remember to crawl under the desk to switch on the TV at the mains, it is the only exercise you get inside the hotel!!
Dinner has a limited choice menu and reasonably priced but only after sitting at a table for almost an hour was I told that you place your order at the bar, there is no sign informing you of that.
I enjoyed my two nights there and felt comfortable to the degree that I will come back again and unlike my previous HIE stay, I look forward to returning here.
