Thomas Paine Hotel

A privately owned hotel in the small town of Thetford.  

Owners Gez & Rosy Chetal run the property that can host conferences events and private dining in our 2 function rooms, along with our 8 en-suite bedrooms, bar and restaurant.

We are a fiercely independent business and support local, through our employment, purchasing, networking and business referral. 

We also run Prismstart, a not-for-profit that aims to help ex-offenders return to work.


The hotels' accommodation provides 8 uniquely styled Boutique Bedrooms and a well-appointed two-bedroom family room.  All have been re-furbished to a very high standard with comfortable king size beds, luxury furnishings and the attention to detail that makes a stay special. 


Set in a quiet location in the market town of Thetford, The Thomas Paine Hotel is the ideal venue to hold your conference or events.  We have two well appointed, recently refurbished, air-conditioned rooms.

When used for Conference and events they can accommodate from 4 to 50 Delegates (min numbers for Day Delegate rates are based on 8 people).
