Had a fantastic night hosted by Gez & Rosie with the whole family. My wife and I both had the Peruvian chicken whichwas perfectly spiced and followed a mixed starter platter that had the most perfectly grilled aubergine and bell peppers we've had in years. Both of the kids devoured their mains as well (mushroom risotto and rack of bbq... More

Stayed at this hotel at the weekend and I can honestly say it was fantastic, the room was very clean and nicely decorated. We went down for breakfast and is was a very good standard, but it was the evening meal that really stood out for me cooked perfectly and presented fantastically. We will be back.

Stayed for one night as we were seeing Paloma Faith at High Lodge. The room, number 7, was generally very nice, lots of space and furnished well, the decor was also great, however in places it could do with some tlc, for instance a dent in wall by the door needs some filler and paint. The bathroom was similar in... More

We popped over to Thetford to see Sam Smith and stayed here. The hotel is easy to find and the staff were very pleasant. Rooms are comfortable and clean with everything you need for an overnight stay. Only gripe was the shower water pressure in rm 6. Not sure if whole hotel suffers but the walk in shower looks lovely... More

Stayed in the Thomas Paine again for business and it is getting better each time I come over. Room was clean, Staff was ready and present when I came in and made sure everything was arranged well. Breakfast is served in a small buffet and you can order your cooked breakfast when prefered.

I stayed here for one night based on the good Trip Advisor reviews. I was not disappointed and would happily return. Excellent location for the centre of Thetford with ample parking on site. Warm welcome and a pleasant ambience in the bar and dining room area. A good bedroom, which was well appointed and quiet. Only slight downside was a... More
