On arrival at the hotel we were shown to our room to discover that it had not been made up, this was 4 in the afternoon and very surprising, we were asked to wait in the bar and a complementary drink was supplied, staff were very apologetic and when we were shown back to the room it was very good,...

27 of us from my golf club had a 2 night break at the hotel and golf in Thorpeness. We played 3 rounds of golf. The course was interesting, well maintained and looked particularly attractive with the broom out. There was heather in the fairways. Water on one hole, the 7 th, which made for an interesting par 3.

This pleasant Hotel set in the quaint village of Thorpeness is a perfect spot for exploring the surrounding countryside and beach. This is a most relaxing place although the hotel mainly caters for golfers it is comfortable and clean. My only criticism is the reception is poorly run with limited staff trying to answer phones and deal with guests.

Booked this via booking.com website as birthday treat. On arrival the location looked great, lovely village with the lake etc as expected. Reception staff bright and friendly but room was a big disappointment. I thought I'd booked a superior room with balcony and views of the lake or golf course. What I got was a clean but tired room with... More

Visited on March 2015 was with group of ladies who had come down from coggeshall for a day of golf and walk by the beach. The reception was friendly and informative, the staff went out of their way to make our day enjoyable. Since it is a yearly trip we were pleased to see changes both at the golf course... More

Service poor, food poor and golf etiquette was a farce.Everyone on the course told the head pro there were 5 balls playing and did... More

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. Our room... More

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
