What a mistake to make, basically the hotel had run out of food! They could offer fish and chips but didn't even have any tomato sauce. Never again shall I eat there and I will make sure anybody I know won't either. The staff are are just useless and there are to many chiefs and not enough Indians they couldn't... More

We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is dog friendly which was very important to us and they allow dogs in the bar as well as the room (unlike other places I looked at). The staff are really friendly and attentive and the food in the bar was very good; we also chose from the... More

We stayed as a group of 4 for an overnight stay to paly golf. Excellent price for DB&B and 2 rounds of golf. Arrived around midday on Tuesday and had a light lunch in the bar. We all thought the food could have been hotter and also the coffee, however it was presented well and reasonably priced. As we were... More

Stayed Sunday night, played golf Sunday, and Monday. 8 of us booked this, fantastic price. Couldn't fault anything, dinner was exceptional, breakfast was lovely too. The hotel was packed with golfers, but when out on the course, there was no queueing, other than the first tee, everyone just seemed to glide round at a reasonable pace. Rooms very nice, and...

Hotel looks a bit "tired" on arrival but staff are all very friendly and its "old" appearance added a kind of pleasant charm to the place. I wanted to write specifically about the breakfast which was really a treat. There was a small help yourself table (cereal, fruit and lovely fresh croissants) and a cook to order main breakfast which... More

We had booked a superior double room with balcony - the balcony turned out to actually be a concrete walkway overlooking the car park with no privacy at all - cost for this £320 B & B for 2 nights. The hotel accepts dogs and due to the concrete walkway we were visited by one let loose by the owner... More

Stayed for one night, would have liked to have stayed longer. Had a superior room and it was fabulous; massive bed, large room, patio area outside. Dog friendly with plenty of walks around. The food was really good and the staff were great - very helpful. Only complaint was that the room was a bit warm in the night, with... More

We stayed at the Thorpeness towards end July and had an almost perfect two night break. We had our two small dogs with us and were given an excellent bedroom on the ground floor which meant we just had to open the french doors to let them out first thing in the morning. We have stayed at the hotel before... More
