Make no mistake, this is a B & B with dining room attached. I stayed for one night whilst traveling on business. I got Room 8 - not their best, I'm sure, from the other reviews I've read. The room consisted of two single beds. No phone in room, so complaints about having no hot water from tap; no hairdryer;... More

Fantastic hotel in a great location, great welcome on arrival. Traditional rooms with all the services required by a business traveller. Good access and parking. Would recommend a visit from either business or leisure travellers. Great little traditional restaurant, good value and great food.

Sat. Nav. an advantage in locating but well worth it. Excellent welcome, spacious room and en-suite and windows that can be opened whilst also secure. Only stayed for one night to attend a local birthday party so did not eat in but the menu looked interesting and reasonably priced.

Very friendly staff and good quality food. Made to feel very much at home, even though we only stayed one night. Difficult to regulate the shower but a minor issue. The beeps from the pelican crossing outside our room became annoying after a while, but did not spoil our enjoyment of our stay.

We chose this hotel for it's location near Snetterton circuit. The room was excellent, clean and had good facilities. The bar was friendly with interesting local ales/cider. Dinner and breakfast in the restaurant was most enjoyable with generous portions. Overall this made for a very good overnight stay.

We stayed at the Thomas Paine hotel recently for 1 night as we had tickets for the Dads Army tour. When we arrived the young man at the bar was very friendly and welcoming and chatted with us about the town. We had dinner there that evening which was very nice but very large portions. Our room was decorated nicely... More

Had a fantastic night hosted by Gez & Rosie with the whole family. My wife and I both had the Peruvian chicken whichwas perfectly spiced and followed a mixed starter platter that had the most perfectly grilled aubergine and bell peppers we've had in years. Both of the kids devoured their mains as well (mushroom risotto and rack of bbq... More
