          The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and although I had to cut short my stay I was made very welcome

          Not too happy about the renovations which were going on during my stay. I suppose that I was just unlucky to go at the wrong time. Also I was a bit unhappy about finding out that breakfast was not included in the price until the final screen of the Booked.net website when it was too late to cancel.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          Bar shut at 11pm , outdated rooms could do with modern look, bathroom straight out of dark ages but clean

          Very good value for money, excellent breakfast choice.

        • Older travelers

          The situation of the bell was excellent and the staff very helpful. ideally situated to explore the town that featured in the Dads Army series.

          Toilet would not flush propertly, no soap in the bedroom, tilles coming away from wall in shower.

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          Very good breakfast but i am afraid the evening meal was very poorly managed. With only two staff covering we had to wait in excess of one and a half hours for our meal. Other customers went and got their own drink from the bar at the other end of nthe hotel due to no members of staff able to help.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          The room and corridors etc are in need of re-decoration. The bathroom sink was partly blocked.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Loved the size of the room.

          Left the booking until the day before travelling as they have a no refund policy on Booked.net. I'm guessing that they'll lose a lot of custom by not having a refund policy in place.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          The staff were polite and helpful. Very good value for money although I appreciate the price was less for a Sunday. Good location. Breakfast was excellent.

          Room we had was one of the older and smaller ones and was in bad need of repainting and updating

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Excellent feature room overlooking the river. Good value with helpful staff. Good breakfast.

          It would be fair to say that the decor is a little 'tired'. However, it is still a very pleasant place to stay and it is good value.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The location and the local history. The walks along the canal. The cost of the food and drink at the bar was reasonable. Altogether a very pleasant over night stay.

          The allowing of dogs to into the hotel outside seating area till late into the evening.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Convenience for local attractions.

          Not enough restaurant staff to cope with number of guests at breakfast on the Saturday morning. An unacceptable wait of 45 mins for breakfast to arrive,

          There was sweets left from previous occupier these were behind the bedside table.... Not good enough for most expensive hotel in thetford

          friendly and attentive staff clean and tidy rooms good menu and well stocked bar

        • Single
          6.2

          very good location in the town centre with car parking.

          The chef seemed to be unable to keep up with the demand even though the restuarant and bar were only half full, locals say this is a regular feature so just accept it.
