My wife and I took another couple out for dinner last Saturday night and thought we would try The Thomas Paine Hotel. We called to book a table and when asked what time would we like to dine we said 8pm but they asked us if we would sit at 8.30pm which we agreed. We arrived at 8pm to have... More

We have just spent two nights here and overall this hotel has a lot to recommend it. Our room, No. 3 was very spacious and comfortable and linen and towels very clean and bed comfortable. The loo needed looking at but apart from that, a good shower room. The reception is part of the Bar and sometimes this doesn't work... More

An excellent venue for a function, great food and a warm welcome from the owners Gez and Rosie. Our large double room was light, airy and very comfortable, with a spacious en-suite shower room, everything we could have hoped for. This was my first visit to the hotel and I look forward to going back again soon.

We stopped in at the Thomas Paine as we were arranging a function there. While there we had dinner and it totally reinforced our choice of venue. The hotel is a wonderful Eighteenth Century venue with links to the political thinker from which it derives its name. The furnishing and decor are in keeping with its period and theme and... More

Had another fantastic evening in the Thomas Paine Thetford. Good entertainment, great food, and a thoroughly enjoyable evening. This hotel is local to us and we consider it to be a great venue in town. Well done to Rosie & Gez for all your efforts.

If this place charged £85 or more ( it's website says they discounted that rate for April 30 2015 to £55 but strangely it appears however this discount remains for an indefinite continuous period)For its "deluxe" double with ensuite "" I would unfortunately have to rate it rather poor. However I paid £55 for 2 double en suite rooms (1... More

Stayed here for business in April, unfortunately the boiler broke during my stay, however this was fixed the next day and the manager was extremely apologetic. Rooms are spotlessly clean and shower was excellent. Tea and coffee making facilities are good, TV small for such a big room. Beds extremely comfortable. Restaurant food on an evening was excellent. Great Location.... More

Decided to stay here after a night in another dull b&b the night before and a long day at the zoo. We had only planned to have a late lunch here after a visit to Banham zoo but as we faced a long drive back, on arrival at the hotel we decide to see if they had a room for... More
