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...

Excellent value for a golf break. Other courses will be shut, but rest assured it will not be the same here and its a great test of golf. Hotel rooms are comfortable, the staff pleasant and helpful. Its not the first time and won't be the last visit.

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
