About the hotel

The Bell Hotel Thetford sites in the heart of the historic market town of Thetford in the heart of Suffolk with easy access from Bury St Edmunds and Norwich via the A11. A thriving inn since the 15th century, the Bell Hotel retains much of its original character and is even said to be haunted. The Bell Hotel is famous as the home of the cast & crew of the television series "Dad's Army".

Thetford features throughout the "Dad's Army" series providing backdrops to many of the programme's scenes. The Bell Inn is a well known and busy wedding venue, so please be aware that if you are visiting the Bell on a Friday or Saturday it maybe noisy with a disco going on. The 12th century Thetford Priory is within walking distance of the hotel. Thetford Forest is just 5 miles away, Oxburgh Hall and the nearby Water Gardens about 20. Also worth visiting is Bressingham Steam Museum and Garden. Enjoy a warm and welcoming atmosphere and great hospitality. Large car park.

tired and dated

nice food at the hotel, although for the price the rooms are very dated and tired, the tap in the bath dripped all night and the noise from the street cleaners at 5 in the morning is horrible, better windows or secondary glazing might help.

Stayed for a night

Straight forward value for money.

Ask them for a different post code if using Sat Nav - Thetford is one way heaven!
