A small market town on the A11, Thetford is very handy for Norwich and the East, and Premier Inn Hotel Thetford puts everything in easy reach. From Norman castles to Newmarket Racecourse, there's plenty to see nearby, and some key business venues too. The outdoor scenes for Dad's Army were filmed in Thetford, and the Dad's Army Museum is well worth a visit while you're here. Or if you want to see a chart-topper, there are some great gigs at High Lodge Forest nearby. After a fabulous day out, come back to the hotel for lovely food at our restaurant and a great night's sleep in a comfy bed.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good experience apart from the fact that the room which we stayed in was extremely hot even with the window open and both fans (which were already provided in our room) switched on. The shower got extremely steamy which didn’t help with the room already being very hot. Other than this, the location was good for our stay, the breakfast was nice and the staff were lovely.

I get about a bit! wrote a review Mar 2024

Premier inns have a colonial thought process. They don’t make all the rooms to a high spec. They keep a few of those for the wealthy masters but the peasants get a sub quality room with service station toilet paper dispensers that give you a tiny square of paper at a time, and not even a place to charge your shaver or an iron! Most hotels try to make all their rooms to a high standard. But what is really bad is they claim you get free wifi! That would be like claiming you get free evening meal and then you are handed half a packet of mouldy biscuits! 0.7meg!! 0.2 when it got busy. You can’t even download an email with that. How are they allowed to advertise this as free wifi? And then if you “upgrade” to useable wifi, which has the front to call itself “ultimate “ it’s the most clunky service imaginable that logs you out every few minutes. I shall be discouraging my staff to book PI in the future. The restaurant staff were pleasant enough and the food was edible but they were overworked and couldn’t cope with the number of people they had to serve. What was odd was if you wanted to sit in a quieter area, you had to order from the bar as the servers could not cope with walking 20 ft out of the zone they were allocated to watch.

John on reception was exceptional, extremely welcoming and friendly. We had a arrived a little before 3pm and dispite Premier Inns policy of a charge if you arrive early he didn’t insist on this because we had told him we needed to be somewhere else and didn’t have long and needed to drop our bags and go. It was refreshing to see someone able to give a bit of flexibility and not be a jobs-worth; we regularly stay at Premier Inns and with no loyalty schemes in place it nice to get a little back from time to time. Thank you John, your kindness was appreciated. Kind regards Lady Victoria 😀

Booked a family room to stay overnight ater a visit to Go Ape in Thetford Forest. Stay was reasonable, but there are pro-s and con's of this heotel. Pro's: very local to Thetford Forest which is a beautiful destination - room was spacey with adequate room for a family of four. Con's: this is clearly not a new Premier Inn; the hotel was in need of a lick of paint and the room itself didn't give the wow-factor (at all). There is no air conditioning (which is an expectation at Premier Inn's as far as I am concerned) and other reviews on here are testament to the fact that the warmer months make these rooms unbearably hot (just a fan stood in the corenr of the room). Equally, and this is a minor point, the shelf next to the double bed was broken meaning my glasses and mobile phone had to go on the floor while I slept (no charging sockets next to the bed either). The Whitbread pub next door (which is a seprate business) was nice, but equally dated with tables that were falling apart and chairs which were worn down to the foam inners showing through.

We stayed here the night before our wedding and it was all very lovely. The wow factor was how they put a bottle of prosecco and flowers in our rooms as they knew it was a wedding party staying. This was such a nice touch and really made us feel special

Nice accommodation with a good pub/restaurant attached to the venue. Parking was easy as well, with same level access to the reception area. The accommodation does not have a lift, so although it was not a problem for us, it's worth bearing this in mind if you have mobility problems and request a room on the ground floor.

The staff were brilliant. The room was clean and well presented. The extractor fan in the bathroom was deafening. It made having a relaxing shower impossible. The breakfast was great value with an enormous amount of choice. It was difficult to relax though as they had radio 2 blaring out like a disco at 8 am making conversation challenging and waking up an instantaneous rather gradual affair.

Just off the A11 and has a large car park and restaurant on site Quick check-in and off to the room on the ground floor quite a walk to the room but it was a nice double room with a view into the car park. The bed was very comfortable and clean as was the bathroom area. a/c was not working and it got very hot in the room. Food in the restaurant was ok and hot when it got to the table drinks were a good price. I am due back to this place in June with the family 2 nights will report my findings later

For the second year running, the 'hotel' side of Thetford Premier Inn was excellent but sadly was let down as soon as you walk into the bar/food area. Bar Service was absent for most of the time and slow when he was there. The breakfast was OK but evening meals were less than satisfactory. I was with a group of around 15 and none of us were impressed. The Thai veg curry with chicken added, looked like it had come out of the freezer on more than one occasion. Sorry to be so negative but the catering side of this establishment really does need looking at pretty seriously.

Charlie our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. Service was great. Food was ok. Music was too load but when asked it was turned down immediately. The hotel room was very clean as normal unfortunately we were in the room on the top floor and the very last room, not their fault they were fully booked.
