Attended as a group of 56 for a weekend golfing package. Welcoming hotel with an excellent golf course. Service, organisation,, and food not up to previous or expected standard. The lunch menu was limited, quantity of fillings in sandwiches was poor for the price charged, and desserts on the first evening had to be returned. There are a number of... More

I visited here due to location of the golf course-which was amazing! And that it was for a relaxing break away. From the first footstep into the hotel to leaving the staff made myself very welcoming and couldn't do enough for me and my family. Food was top class and the speed and standards were very good. The room over... More

Booked this hotel as a convenient location for a trip to Minsmere with my sister (around 6.5 miles away and an easy drive). We loved the character of Thorpeness and the hotel was only a short walk to the centre of the village and the beach. Reception staff were excellent. Room was good, clean and well equipped, breakfasts were great... More

Fantastic food, great location - actually proposed here and have to say we had a great weekend ( she said yes so I guess that helped!) but honestly clean, good staff, very good place to stay. Can't comment on the golf but the bar has a great selection from Adnams well worth a visit

Very comfortable beds. A really beautiful setting and if you are a golfer a superb course which can be very tricky. The breakfasts are nice, the people friendly and overall you cannot go wrong really. Nice boating lake near by and interesting villages and the town of Aldeburgh to explore.

Everyone who worked at the venue did everything they possibly could to make sure the day ran smoothly and it really did. My husband and I felt no stress at all for the entire day which was... More

The hotel as a building is fantastic within a quiet setting. However golf club members always get served fist, even if your next to be served at the bar. Very Noisy in the bar when club members celebrate the days playing. Then driving home or piling into one room for the night. We had tweenty drunken golfers staying a few... More
