We were very impressed with our room - very spacious with doors onto a patio. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was second to none. The breakfasts were amazing with a very good choice from both the buffet and the cooked menu. The surroundings were lovely and we only wish we'd had more time to explore them. We wouldn't... More

Thorpeness is a nice little coastal resort, and the Golf Club is in a pretty pocket of it. It worked very well for us; no need to get in the car again if you didn't want to, although Aldeburgh was only a few minutes' drive if you chose to go. Food and service were good, and there were lots of... More

I take a group of 20-30 golfers every year and we are always amazed by the phenomenal value for money. The golf course aside, the hotel is great, the restaurants are brilliant, the bar is always busy and the staff friendly and helpful. Not much more can be asked!

This was the 6th or 7th time we have had short breaks at the hotel both in the summer and at New Year. The packages are very competitive with other venues The rooms-particularly the superior bed rooms- are well appointed. The food is excellent and the welcome and service from all the staff is outstanding. The golf course is in... More

Footnote before we begin - I actually married at Thorpeness Country Club as apposed to the hotel, but stayed there for the nights before and after. We stayed in July, marrying on a Monday and it was spectacular. The country club is located right next to the sea and made for a beautiful setting, but an added bonus for us... More

I'm writing a review not to be unkind, but in the hope that the feedback might jog the management on to look into the obvious issues that need addressing at this hotel. On the 2nd morning I went to reception with a long list of discrepancies. The list is too long to write but the the main issues were the... More

Spent two nights here as joined family holidaying in the area. very friendly staff, nice comfortable room but very hot due to large French Windows facing South West. Would be nice to have air conditioning or at least a fan. Good parking and free Wi Fi. Only ate breakfast here, freshly cooked to order and both smoked haddock and kippers... More

I have been coming to Thorpeness for 10 years now, sometimes twice a year.The golf course remains top class and well cared for, though the pro could do with some lessons in smiling. The hotel however has really gone downhill. I can forgive the shabbiness of the rooms as they have a homely feel, but they do really need updating.On... More

I stayed here 30 July - 1 August with 10 ladies. We requested and were allocated the same rooms as last year, behind the Pro shop. Everyone was happy with their rooms and appreciated the refurbed bathroom and shower units. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Delicious food both from the bar and at dinner and scrummy breakfast, although... More

Glad you had such a great stay with us. Our aim is to make Thorpeness your favourite golf club away from your own and that special bolt hole where you can’t wait to return. The new walk in showers that were introduced as part of our refurbishment process have been very popular and our staff and golf course are a... More

Pros: beautiful surroundings, clean rooms with nice view, nice size too, friendly staff, good breakfast, good ambience. Proper travel cot provided. Kettle and tea/coffee making possibility. Quality bed. Great golf course. Contras: missing plaster here and there, damp, in need of a good deal of upholstering and carpeting. No aircon. Rubbish restaurant menu, staff started to set the untaken tables... More
