Stayed here one night while in Thetford on business. It's a nice hotel, well appointed and comfortable. I had a large family room to myself and it was a good size, comfortable bed and reasonable choice of channels on TV. I have read a couple of comments on the showers and mine was one of the worst I have ever... More

Our second visit to the Thomas Payne. Wanted to take advantage of the spacious bedrooms but only had time for Rememberance Sunday lunch. As before great food, well presented and the friendliest of service. They get it right with their blend of professionalism and warmth, something the big chains could learn from. Wines sensibly priced and well sourced local ingredients,... More

I stayed here with my son after a day out in the forest. It is a nice building and well decorated. The room we stayed in (5) was at ground level and next to the street so the traffic noise was evident. Being on a Saturday night there was the occasional noise of people on their way home. If you...

Stayed here for one night prior to a conference at .CentreParcs. Lovely room but at the back of the hotel so very noisy with morning traffic as it overlooks a main road. Would be a nightmare in the summer if you had the windows open. Shower was very weak. Breakfast was excellent - everything you could want an plenty of... More

Front of house staff impeccable manners, and very keen to please - thank you. Room good size and layout, comfortable bed. Bathroom Not spotless. General impression is that needs some cleaning attention on the landing to the rooms. No hot water from shower or sink 2nd day despite letting it run for some time. Unfortunately well-done steak was a little... More
