Best Western Brook Hotel Norwich

The Best Western Brook Hotel in Norwich resides just 3 miles away from the city centre. Whilst staying here - nestled in the capital of East Anglia - you can enjoy a rare blend of history and modern sophistication, with lots of nearby attractions to wow you away from the hotel. The Best Western is in fact ideal if youre looking for a hotel near Norwich castle. You'll be less than 20 minutes from the 900-year-old Normal Palace turned prison, which has recently been reimagined as a museum and art gallery. The castle offers talks and workshops for adults, and plenty of family activities during school holidays for an exciting insight into Norwich's history.

A 15-minute drive from the hotel will take you to the vibrant Norwich market. The market is open 6 days a week and boasts almost 200 stalls, so you'll be met by fabulous food, flowers, crafts and oh so much more. BeWILDerwood, a forest jam-packed with adventure, is only 30-minutes from the hotel. It includes everything from zip wires and jungle bridges, to boat trips for limitless family-fun.

Style and flair can be observed as soon as you enter the hotel, as our contemporary dcor is frequently complimented by guests. For business folk, we have free Wi-Fi and plenty of desk space in all 80 cosy en-suite bedrooms, so you can enjoy both a peaceful working environment and a rejuvenating rest. We also recommend keeping an eye out for our Murder Mystery nights, as guests are invited to piece together a murder whilst indulging in a welcome glass of bubbly and divine 3 course meal.

You'll find our friendly staff as charming as our accommodation, as we'll always make you feel welcome - whether it's your first or one hundredth time here. For further amenities, Carrefour Health Club is nearby and is available to our guests for £5.
