I regularly visit Thetford for my work and find the Thomas Paine Hotel ideal for my use, fabulously located a few doors away from Thetford Museum and 50 metres from the main high street. Its been under new ownership since 2013 and the owners have done a great job from the service to the décor. Rooms are large, clean and... More

The service was rather slow and having asked for two meals from the "special menu" and the restaurant being virtually empty, we were told that they had... More

Didn't stay but had a meal for eighteen people to celebrate my birthday. The food was excellent and the staff were brilliant, very attentive and efficient. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable, made me feel very special! All eighteen of us will be visiting again soon. Many thanks Marilyn Norton.
