Excellent in the end
We arrived got the key card, our Feature room was to put it blunt rubbish.
Masking tape around the windows, not enough milk for drinks in the pot, noisey from the air con unit opposite, no view. Plus we were going to be charged an extra £40 for the same room the next night. So rather dissatisfied . In the morning I went to reception and explained the situation. Upon arrival back, we were given Suite 5 a bridal suite, complimentary Fruit Bowl, Free Breakfast and our bags moved to the new all for the original price. I have to say VERY IMPRESSED BY THE SERVICE given at this hotel, The food is excellent.
The Maids Head Hotel
We received very good service from all the staff, reception, cleaning staff and restaurant staff.
All were good-natured and helpful. The hotel is well placed for those wanting to see as much of Norwich as possible in a short stay.
