This hotel is perfect if you like walking through beautiful countryside or along a wide, shingle beach. Situated on a golf course with lovely grounds to walk around (close to "the House in the Clouds" which is interesting to see), and about 35 minutes drive from Southwold or 5 mins drive (or a nice long walk) to Aldeburgh.

This is a wonderful part of Suffolk and the hotel is perfectly situated for touring the area. The welcome was friendly and efficient and the bedroom very clean and comfortable with pleasant views. Sadly however our stay was spoiled by a chaotic level of service at breakfast where it took an hour for our order of poached eggs on a... More

We stayed here for 5 days in a suite - dog friendly and ordered room service which was nice. Plenty of parking! Not much in the form of hotel facilities -no swimming pool, sauna, or jacuzzi. This is a golfers paradise type hotel. Great for couples who want to relax and walk or play golf. Prices vary depending on when... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over the Easter weekend. Reception on arrival was very helpful and even showed us around the bar, restaurant etc. We were in room 28 adjacent to the main club and overlooking the putting green. Ample parking, the room was large with a king size bed and 32 inch flat screen TV with Freeview. There... More

The plus is the proximity to a reasonable golf-course and some attractive packages being offered for golf and board. The rooms are clean ,comfortable and quiet. The food is OK to good but one would not stay here for the food.

I have been visiting Thorpeness for a number of years and a lot of work has gone into improving the golf course. Some gorse has been removed and bunkers added to speed up play. An excellent test of golf for players of all standards. Staff in the hotel are efficient and friendly. Unfortunately the food was not so good this... More

I can't comment on the hotel because I didn't stay, and I won't go into detail about the history of the village because I live in Suffolk and know the story anyway and besides, others have adequately explained before me. What I can comment on is the golf. I've lived in Suffolk for 26 years, albeit on the far side... More

Stayed here for 1 night.....its a golf course with a few bedrooms...nothing more. If you love golf it's probably ok......otherwise don't bother. The rooms are dated and rather shabby. Beds are too soft...and bedding poor. Bathroom needed updating too. The only facilities are the clubhouse.....and that's shabby too Worst of all was the breakfast...it took an hour to get served...
