Couldn't reallly fault it. Reception good, looked after my bags as I arrived very early and room not quite ready. Self service check-in available. The bed was so comfortable that I got in at 8 and left it at 8 the next morning. Excellent breakfast. Good location. Will use again.

I'm a 50+ lady (no further details allowed), studying for a part-tome Masters degree at the University of East Anglia. Part of that involves travelling up to Norwich from Devon three times a year. I absolutely love it! I love East Angia. I love Norwich and I really love the Premier Inn Nelson. I did my research and was looking...

We stayed here for 3 nights as my brother lives here and was his 40th birthday bash so needed somewhere close to him and somewhere close to the city centre. When we arrived the hotel was in a prime location and only 10 minutes from my brothers place so was very pleased. Ammenities nearby is a subway next door, onestop...

Very comfortable. Very good service. The food was very good. The only problem was the bacon was a little bit too crispy for me. But apart from that very good service. That was the only fault. Staff are extremely helpful.

Yet another comfortable stay in this excellent city centre hotel. Perfectly located riverside and just a 2 minute walk from railway station and 10 minute walk into the shopping centres. We have been using this hotel for many years and have always received a friendly welcome from both hotel and restaurant staff. Look forward to another visit in the spring.

It's a great weekend break, excellent service and great rooms for the price. Restaurant downstairs and bar, good food and always friendly service. Breakfast is lovely and you are left to pick and choose what or how much you want to eat of the very extensive menu. It's just like being at home-not bothered by anyone, anything and the service...

Friendly staff, always ready to help. Rooms clean. Can be a little hectic at breakfast Visit here on a regular basis any problems have always been sorted quickly. Costa coffee at the front of the hotel is a good place. Riverside has plenty of eating places and a cinema.

Room was clean and there wasn't any street noise that could be heard. I turned off the air conditioning as this made some noise. There was a heater that I didn't use as the room was warm enough. Would've liked to have a plug next to the bed, to plug my phone.

The staff here took great care of me during meal times and made sure I was comfortable and happy with the food and drink. Check in was lovely and smooth, and the room was clean and tidy. There was a little bit of noise at night but this was from other guests who had been enjoying a night out and...
