We (Mum, Holly the English Bull Terrier and Myself) stopped at the The Bell over the May Bank holiday.
I love the Bell, the staff are fantastic, Linda is now running the breakfast buffet now, and she is doing a great job.

The breakfast buffet is lovely, a choice of cereals, fresh pastries, fruit salad, yoghurts and full English too, yummy. If your not into a full English breakfast, you have plenty of choice on the morning menu.

We had booked a twin room, to find out the day before that it had been double booked, Eeeek, Luckily for us, We got upgraded!!! WooHoo :)

We stopped in Room 10, which is more like a suite than a straight forward room. The room faces the river, and has a balcony which Holly thoroughly enjoyed. She loved watching people walk by.

We normally stay in room 20 which is a family room, which is lovely. But, I now think that when we stop next time, I do believe that we try to get room 10 again.

The room was clean, tidy, and well maintained.

The summer menu is now on and there is plenty on offer.

Love Thetford, its a dog walkers haven, and The Bell is a dog walkers hotel heaven.

Room Tip: The rooms in the newer part of the hotel have a view of the river. There is plenty of parking.

We chose Thetford as we were on our way to see relatives. It was an excellent choice to stay at the Bell as we were made welcome by all the staff who were very helpful and friendly. We had a very pleasant dinner and breakfast. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. We were able to sit in a comfortable lounge after dinner and relax. Also a good car park. Thetford is a pleasant town to visit and we had a short time for a walk before we left.

Room Tip: Our room was in a quiet part of the hotel over the restaurant with a view of the river, when we wer...
