We stayed at the hotel on Friday night, and also attended an Indian night, there - and as usual everything was superb. Lovely evening, great food, and most of all a lovely room with a really comfortable bed, and a yummy breakfast in the morning. Also must mention the lovely friendly staff, who can not do enough for you. All... More

If you like a nice hot shower then the Thomas Paine Hotel is not for you! The water pressure leaves you trying to shower under a dripping tap! Apart from that the hotel was acceptable, and the staff friendly.

Yes the food, accommodation and the staff are all very good. But the toilets !!! The disabled toilet looks neglected to the point of looking it needs complete refurbishment. The gents toilet was devoid of hand washing soap in the dispenser and hot air hand drier didn't work at all. I assume the ladies rest room matched. Too little parking... More

Beautiful hotel with amazing wait staff. The owner is very welcoming. I have spent many nights just in the bar area meeting great people and hearing fantastic stories. The food is cooked extremely well. I plan on going back!

The Thomas Paine Hotel is unique not least because the rear of the building almost certainly forms part of the birthplace of Thomas Paine. The hotel also displays some interesting pictures and artefacts relating to his life. The room we occupied was of a high standard - comfortable, clean, spacious and well furnished. The food was also excellent and the... More

Location and parking is excellent as the Hotel is located on the old London road in the middle of Thetford. Rooms are spacious and well equipped many traditional features... More
