  • 45 Guest Rooms
  • Classic Coaching Inn
This historic coaching inn is Thetford's most comfortable place to stay
This historic coaching inn has been much expanded over the years and remains Thetford's most comfortable place to stay, with 45 rooms of all shapes and sizes in both the original Tudor period building and a slightly uninspired 1960s extension. The best rooms are the ones overlooking the river in the modern wing, while those with the most character are the ones facing onto King Street, a couple of which are said to be haunted by the ex-landlady of the hotel – indeed one member of staff admitted she would never spend a night in either! If after hearing that, you need a drink, you can take the weight off off in the very comfy bar or restaurant downstairs.  As well as being handy for Thetford's modest array of sights, including the Dad's Army Museum (the iconic comedy was famously filmed in the town), the dog friendly hotel is also perfectly placed for the delights of nearby Thetford Forest, and a welcoming place to come back to after a day's cycling and hiking in the woods. 



Open all year.


Double rooms with breakfast from £90 a night.
