    Superb

    I would probably have liked the pool area the best, but didn't have time to use it. I thought the conservatory area and the pool area looked very inviting and would have loved to have had some time to spend there relaxing.

    Only one small thing I didn't like and that was the shower over the bath. The shower itself had good pressure, but the screen was not long enough and the bathroom floor was flooded by the time two of use had used the shower.

    Superb

    The room and breakfast were both excellent. Lovely big comfortable bed, nicely furnished and spotless room, including bathroom. Molton Brown added a touch of luxury. The breakfast was well organised, well staffed, plentiful with lots of variety and very tasty.

    Parking is not easy. Although there is an underground car park, which I pre-paid at booking, it was full (as was the hotel). We found a public car park just down the road which was cheaper though not as convenient or secure. Be careful on the way out too - I scraped an alloy on the exit gate (it has some sharp brackets at wheel height!).

    We stayed at the Norfolk Royale Hotel over the New Year for 3 nights and had a lovely big room with arm chairs as well. The breakfasts were very nice and everything you could want was available. It also had a nice bar. The hotel is very central so we were able to walk every where which was great. Walking along the beach and promenade on NYD was great. Overall a lovely central hotel. (They just need to update their TV's, see below).

    The negative point of the hotel was that our room had a very old TV which had a poor signal. (I understand that this was the case for many rooms). I think they need to put flat screens in all the rooms with freeview channels and there would be no complaints from people.

    Nothing, the staff were unprofessional, the TV didn't work in the room and ahd to be replaced, the car park gates wouldn't open, the meal in the restaurant was poor and generally not a good experience.

    This hotel is situated superbly for access to the shopping centre and the beautiful gardens as well as to some excellent eating establishments for this box and the one below does not allow for any amendments to text _therefore I am terminating this response. Very ANNOYING!guests wanting a change of "culinary scenery"

    Our bedroom was situated over the garage access on the floor below us. As a result the evening and late into the night as well as early morning was broken fairly constantly by the mechanical door gear operating the shutters open and closed. And r

    the hotel was very lavish and we were made welcome when we entered the hotel. bed was very large and so comfortable. defiantly somewhere i would recommend staying again.

    the people staying here obviously had a lot of money and they looked at us funny when we walked through the hotel. parking was expensive but we were able to park out the front of the hotel. prices in the bar were expensive.

    Very good

    The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room was beautifully decorated and spacious with comfortable beds. There is a great health club (although only a small pool) and a lovely beauty salon next door. Good choice at breakfast.

    The rooms at the front of the hotel can be very noisy, especially during the night of a weekend. As it is in the centre, there are a lot of bars around and the shouting and fighting went on all night, in the street outside. I would stay here again, but only if I could be guaranteed a room at the back of the hotel.
