We recently got married at the registry office in Thetford and decided to have the reception at the Thomas Paine (a two-minute walk away), and our decision was completely vindicated. Everyone, from the bar staff through to Chris (the chef/manager) to Gez (the owner) made a great effort and we had a really great wedding party. Lovely food (even for... More

Enjoyed my one night stay at this hotel which has a lot of character and is right in the centre of Thetford close to the station. Very spacious clean room and bathroom. Excellent value at £70 for the night. I am told the restaurant is good but did not eat there in the evening or for breakfast. I shall certainly... More

We loved this hotel and the warm reception and excellent service that we received throughout our visit. The room was large and comfortable and reasonably quiet, if you closed the secondary glazing. Unfortunately the menu was very limited on the night of our stay which was a great shame as the small restaurant looked so cozy with low lighting and... More

Stayed here for two nights and felt incredibly welcome. Very friendly and attentive staff from start to finish. Check-in was a breeze and the room was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable beds. The food was very nice, however it was a little surprise that the full menu wasn't available when the menu is supplied in the room. So it would... More

Lovely room and friendly staff, a real treasure. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We found the food really tasty and not too fancy. The room was fine, the bed really comfortable and the pillows were great - something you don't always get. Cant wait to visit again!! Thank you for the service.
