It's the hotel to stay at (home away from home). Accommodation exceeds expectation and the food is amazing especially the tenderloin. Try the restaurant you won't be disappointed. Bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious, clean and neat. Great ambience and a courteous staff!

Everything a small private hotel should be. A good, large room (although I believe some rooms are smaller and overlook a busy road); good food; friendly and efficient staff; and a town centre position.

I stayed with my partner in the 'superior room', (room number 1) which was very spacious and the bathroom was great! We received great service throughout. We had both dinner and breakfast which again, was lovely, an absolute pleasure to stay. The only bad thing I could say, was that the showers water pressure is quite low, so keep this... More

Had afternoon tea 🍵 at the Thomas pain whilst away on a business trip! Why the Thomas? Because last time I was there I loved it and I wasn't let down this time, the service was first class, the scones melted in my mouth and I can't speak highly enough about how immaculate the toilet facilities are! All in all... More

We booked this hotel as a nearby stop over for a Spa Day at Center Parcs, Elveden. The hotel was very clean, food was great and the staff could not do enough for you. We'll be returning again soon. Thanks!

Scones looked just like the cheap value ones from the supermarket, and were stale. Sorry but serving them warm did nothing to disguise their synthetic taste. Chocolate fudge cake also stale and served cold. On the upside the coffee was nice.

We decided to have our annual works party at The Thomas Paine Hotel this year, and I'm glad to say that we made an excellent choice! We had 72 people in our party. We were met as we came in by the excellent owner Gez Chetal, who greeted all of us and took care of us throughout the evening. All... More
