Fantastic Hospitality
Fantastic hospitality! Gez and Rosie made me feel like I was family in my hometown. The meals were lovingly prepared from scratch and locally sourced beef! They were absolutely delicious! My room was a large corner suite with a newly renovated bathroom…quiet, comfortable and stocked with tea, coffee, milk and lovely biscuits. The gin selection is fantastic along with great wines at the very warm and friendly bar…staff and family were always on hand to take great care of you. I would highly recommend a weekend stay if you’re passing through town as a solo traveler. Then what’s more is the history of Thomas Paine himself…if you don’t know about Thetford’s famous son…then take a trip to the Thomas Paine Hotel for walk through history on inspirational American Independence. Will definitely be back for a visit!

6/10 Good

Lovely historical building, however I feel the resident information books need updating or a temporary notice in them to advise, there is no cooked breakfast and meal times don’t follow what is shown in the information. I finished working at 7pm and was looking forward to ordering room service which was shown to finish at 10pm only to be told that the kitchen was closed at 6pm. As I was there for business a cooked breakfast and evening meal would have been nice considering what I paid for the room. On a plus, the staff were friendly.

4/10 Fair

Hotel wasn't open until someone turned up!
Started with great communication about check in as there was no-one on the reception, in which when i arrived the hotel looked closed. No lights on, no doors open, to which i had to wait for somebody to arrive to check me and another party in. Literally the hotel was closed. This wasn't stated in the booking apart from the restaurant not being open, which is fine. I dont normally give reviews but this was just an odd experience. After the nice enough chap booked us in, after turning on some lights he left, leaving what i assume no staff in the hotel. The stay other than that was ok, bit dated but comfy enough.
