A 1 night stopover as our own holiday house was booked up. Staff very friendly and helpful. Evening bar meal nice and adequate sitting on the balcony. Breakfast was lovely and good choice but did have to ask for milk for coffee. I would definately reccommend staying here, bedrooms clean and tidy, floor in bathroom a bit slippy even with... More

Yet again we held our annual corporate golf tournament at Thorpeness golf Club (I think that makes 15 years in a row now) and yet again it was a massive success. The staff as always are incredibly efficient and friendly and nothing is ever too much trouble. Every year we have in the region of 70 guests staying and the... More

The Hotel is lovely and set in wonderful grounds. It is in need of a refurbishment as the whole hotel is very tired looking. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. We had a meal in the restaurant which I am afraid was very disappointing. The fish was bland and the vegetables hard and tasteless, but when we complained... More

Stayed there quite a few times in the past and all the staff really do care and serve with a smile. Nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to be helpful and pleasant which is really unusual these days. The dinner menu is wide and varied and if there something you really want which is... More

Not far from the beach, alongside the Meare surrounded by the golf course, a very pretty landscaped garden, this is a lovely place to stay. Fab walks from the hotel door and dog friendly. My ultimate test of comfy beds, and cleanliness was more than satisfied. Personally I wouldn't have my dinner here. The breakfast was substantial with lots of... More

Thanks for your feedback. I always appreciate our visitors telling us of their experience. The Suffolk Heritage coast is full of long walks whether heathland or beaches and with the hotel sandwiched between the Meare, Golf Course and with the beach close by we think it’s a beautiful location. I’m delighted you had such a good stay and that we... More

My husband and friends played golf in the afternoon and 10 of us booked a table in the restaurant.we were just about on our own until a party of 30 gentlemen arrived for their dinner. Our starters were ok, our main courses... More

We had looked forward to this break for a long time and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were made to feel very welcome.

We spent an amazing day at Thorpeness Country Club on the 31st May. The venue was just fantastic for an all in one location for our wedding. The setting so close to the beach was the reason we fell in love with this place and why we booked such a special day here. We really couldn't have asked for more.... More

Sounds like the perfect Wedding. If I were writing a testimonial of what I would hope for from a guest, here it is. The Country Club is the only wedding venue in Suffolk by the sea and sets us apart. However, it still relies on delivering what our customers seek and it seems like we were spot on! Thanks for... More

Our team of 20 Senior Golfers from Essex thoroughly enjoyed an over4night stay with 2 rounds of golf. Excellent service by all staff whose aim was definitely "to please". The Course was very challenging & not for the faint hearted who couldn't "hit straight". Never seen so much gorse. Menu could be a bit more enterprising but was fine. Rooms... More

Delighted you and your group had such a enjoyable stay with us. The James Braid designed golf course as you found, is a test but hopefully one that you will master next time you visit. Either that or the pro shop do a fine line in golf balls – just joking! Our staff are the cornerstone of what we have... More
