I very rarely write reviews but just got home from a one night stay and play at Thorpeness Golf Club and had to do this straight away in case I forgot. I've been to quite a few courses around the UK and never had such a good complete experience. Couldn't fault anything. Excellent and friendly service at reception, resturant and... More

Glad you had such a great time with us. Our aim is to give everyone this experience, offer outstanding value for money and with this hopefully golfers will return. We are a golf resort but strive to give you that personal experience that the bigger venues simply can’t offer. Come again soon More

We stayed here one night on a quick visit to Suffolk. The rooms are well equipped. My room had a wet room style shower, good toiletries and very comfortable bed. I wished I was staying longer than one night! We were late arriving after a long queue at the Dartford Tunnel, but we were welcomed into the restaurant. We had... More

It sounds like the only thing I can say apart from thank you for your positive review is come again soon, try to avoid the busy times at the Dartford Crossing (if it’s possible) and please stay longer! More

Part of out annual golf retreat we went to Thorpness golf club for a couple of rounds of golf and a night stay in the hotel. Firstly the golf course, all I can say is it's a tough but beautiful course with super greens. The hotel was very nice and we stayed in a twin room above the restaurant which... More

Thanks for your thoughts. We have spoken to you since your visit and apologised for an over exuberant green keeper so early on a Saturday morning. It’s not the normal timings and being a golfer you will know that sometimes conditions/competitions, etc. cause us to vary our routine and we apologise for that. We could have chosen a better time...

A great location in Thorpeness, not far to walk to the beach or mere. It made a good base from which to explore this part of Suffolk. Hotel Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Loved our rooms overlooking the golf course, perfect for a quiet break. Restaurant was quite formal and menu was disappointing, we selected from the bar... More

Thanks for your feedback about your stay. As you say we are perfectly positioned to explore the Suffolk Heritage Coast and don’t have to be a golfer to stay at the hotel. The restaurant is slightly more formal than the patio bar area and are always happy for our guests to choose from either menu which is why they are... More

Stayed here for work. Couldn't fault friendliness of staff. Room was a good size but felt slightly damp. Had meal in restaurant but wish I chose bar when I saw the limited options in menu. Food was good though.

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us when you were so far away from home. We always rely on our friendly staff to give you a good Suffolk welcome. I hope someone told you that we could have served anything from the bar menu for you even if you were in the restaurant? More

I am a regular visitor to this Hotel and had another enjoyable stay. The course has really improved we were very impressed with the greens. Staff as helpful as ever. The food was not quite as good as I have previously experienced - portions small if you have a worked up an appetite. The lounge has become a little tired.... More

Always good to welcome back our golfing guests for yet another visit. Our plan is to make Thorpeness your favourite course after your own. Just planning a bit of TLC for the lounge area to keep that comfortable friendly environment for which we pride ourselves. The new 9th green looks as if it’s always been there and the green keepers... More

As you approach the hotel, the frontage rises up to great you like some majestic liner. The common spaces are welcoming, though the reception is a little small ! Most of the rooms are in a seperate block, mainly twin beds, with plenty of room, but poor wireless ( and this part of the coast does not have good reception)... More

Thanks for taking the time to tell us about your experience at Thorpeness. We believe that the course is a great test but as you say, hitting the ball straight is a must for good scoring. The wireless access at the hotel is being upgraded in September as part of our constant process of improving what we offer on or... More

We had our wedding reception at Thorpeness Country Club, and it was the perfect venue. It's in a lovely location, which our friends and family loved visiting. The food was delicious, which we were able to taste beforehand. The day itself went very smoothly with no hiccups; the staff were very helpful and friendly. Thank you!
