I continue to return and love the place! Every time I go I have a wonderful time. Fantastic staff and the rooms are very spacious. I recommend the Thomas Paine hotel to all my friends who need a place to stay in the area.

one of the cleanest hotels you will find. The staff is very welcoming, the rooms are comfortable and the decoration is very elegant. I would give them 10000 stars!! My husband and I slept like babies because it was peaceful night every night. I have no complaints

We stayed two nights. Not a bad price and comfortable beds with standard things like tv, coffee and tea etc and a clean and updated shower and loo. But we stayed in room 2 and there was no hot water in the shower (after 20 mins running it just got slightly above tepid). Scalding hot water in the basin though.... More

The hotel provides warm rest and relax after a stressful working day. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are space full and comfortable. Breakfast was tasty. The only surprise for me was when we could not get warm food in the bar mid afternoon...
