The food was amazing, can not recommend the steak highly enough. Cooked to perfection and a lovely cut of meat. Staff friendly and helpful. The owner gave us a tour of the hotel and the rooms look amazing.

Recently been down there with a friend for two steaks at a cracking deal, I would have been happy paying double the price due to the steaks being amazing, well cooked rich in flavor and it was complemented well by the sides, anyone who doesn't see this as great value for money is simply a lunatic :)

Whilst on a business trip, had the chance to sample dinner here at this hotel after being recommended by a friend of mine who had stayed here in the past. I was not disappointed. The staff were very attentive but also very unobtrusive. Food was superb!!!! Will be recommending this to all my business contacts. Will definately visit again.

Once again, I had the chance to stay here for a quiet romantic night away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. I was not disappointed. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, every aspect of our stay was 100% perfect. Absolutely love visiting this hotel!!!

After hearing good reports about the Thomas Paine Hotel I decided to call in with my wife after a days visit in Bury St Edmunds. On entry to the Hotel you are greeted by very courteous staff and a lovely old fashioned fire roaring away. The décor is so well thought out and is complimentary to a lovely old building... More

Had dinner at the hotel it was fantastic. My friend had the new mixed grill. I tried some of it and it was great! Seemed reasonably priced as well at £18 I had an amazing steak! Always great food and great people. The staff is also very friendly.

Excellent all round service. Had a great evening, we were looked after Well by the staff who were helpful and friendly. The food was scrumptious and plentiful. Would definitely recommend Thomas Paine as a first class venue for anyone thinking of holding a function.

Booked in for 2 nights. Great welcome, extremely friendly service, great food and a wonderful nights sleep. The afternoon tea was a nice touch and the rooms were clean and really spacious. Free WIFI was a bonus. Usually costs me a fortune. Wouldn't hesitate in booking again next time I'm in the area.
