    Without a doubt the friendliness of the staff, despite all the problems I encountered staying there was the best thing about this hotel. It was clear the staff was under a lot of pressure, the restaurant staff was short staffed (It took for ever to get served) but the friendliness of the waitress made up for it in my eyes. There was a prom night on the Saturday where drunk people behaved,well like drunk people and kept me awake til 1:30. Speaking to the maintenance man the day after, it was clear the people had created a lot of problems for the staff (broken glass etc). I was going to complain about it too but when I realized the effect it had on the staff, decided not to. There was problem with hot water too to top it all off (none on one of the nights). When I highlighted the problems to the reception lady, she had no problems with taking off one night (the most pricey one) off my bill, I really appreciated it. The chambermaid staff was also very nice. So the hotel might have felt less than satisfactory because of temporary problems, but the staff more than made up for it! And I loved sitting in their courtyard.

    All the problems I experienced were temporary one.

    We where able to book in the whole family into good rooms even though we booked late, the service within the hotel was excellent. We where having a 50th Wedding Anniversary party at the hotel, the staff help us whenever we requested thier assisitance.

    Handy Hotel for the area

    The hotel itself was lovely, our room was very nice and the food - both bar menu and breakfast were excellent, and we felt very good value indeed. The parking was good and the distance to nearby shops was good, it is close to local attractions but still a quaint hotel. The history of the hotel interested us a great deal.

    The town of Thetford itself is a let down, not the fault of the hotel obviously, but the local council let Thetford down by not investing in it, and this lets The Bell down as the local area is important.The limited TV channels is a shame, but not a big enough problem to stop us staying there again.

    In the right location and reasonably priced for a break with my mum. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was good.

    The shower in the room took a long long time to start running hot and when it did was not much above body temperature. The pressure was extremely low and water not hot enought to want to add cold water to it. Complained the first day and it was look at - improved but still not up to standard of rest of the Hotel Services.

    Staff were exceptionally helpful. Our double bed was very comfortable with good cotton bedding and two pillows each. Lots of parking made it easy.

    We have stayed in room 48 twice and the windows do not shut despite complaining on our previous stay, you have to wedge the hotel info mag in the window to keep it closed, have also stayed in the ro below which has the same problem, big let down needs sorting its freezing.

    Room 11 - We loved everything about it. Restaurant for dinner and breakfast - suited us perfectly.

    The bar is not a very comforable place for a drink. We moved to the'lounge area' with the log fire,
