A great hotel, staff were excellent; very friendly and helpful. Food was good, plenty of it, especially after a round of golf. Service in the dining room was outstanding. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. Course was very enjoyable and provided a challenging weekends golf.

Unfortunately only stayed here for 2 days. Very friendly. The rooms were comfortable, clean and bright. Only problem was cleaners dumping the dirty linen across corridors and door ways. Ate there once in the evening which was ok but not the standard you would expect. Wide choice for breakfast although one day they were short staffed and you had to... More

Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for the positive comments about our hotel. I will be sure to pass your comments on to our house keeping team and we will look in to the laundry being left in the corridors, this is not standard practice. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. More

Smashing hotel and very comfortable room. Sadly let down by the restaurant which was quite frankly awful. Fantastic views over the golf course and a beautiful area to stay. Aldeburgh well worth a visit.

Been there on more than six times and in the past I didn't have any issues. This time though, I noticed a number of changes. The bar has had some new furniture which while being very comfortable, are not in keeping with the rest of the decor. The restaurant hasn't changed but the chef clearly has changed as the dinner...

Me and my husband came here last Sunday to eat in the golf club bar as my Mum and Dad had previously stayed at the hotel and recommended it. We both had the Burger and home made chips (as recommended by my Mum as the best burger she has had in her life) and I have to agree got it... More

Unfortunately if you're not, there is not much to recommended it. Rooms need a paint though very clean. Basic facilities in rooms, large very comfortable bed. Large walk in shower but they have placed hot towel rail next to toilet, so you have to be careful you don't burn your leg. Walls very thin and could hear other people running... More

We have stayed and played at Thorpeness for a number of years. It is a fair and challenging course maintained to a high standard, and importantly is playable throughout the year. Unfortunately the hotel continues to be in decline. In previous years standards were high whether you were arriving as individuals or part of a golfing group. The hotel has... More

We really enjoyed our weekend away here with the family. Ok it's not perfect and could do with a revamp but the staff were all really nice, food good, and our rooms were made up early. The bathroom was good and rooms spacious. Everything was clean. Thin walls and a few springs in the mattress but overall a good trip... More

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,...
