We have just returned from this hotel after a 3 night break for my husbands birthday. It is in a beautiful location with great nearby walks and views. We had a superior room which I thought was lovely and all the staff were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was excellent. My only slight criticism is that they say... More

I had thought about staying here for years, but finally the opportunity arose. I booked a 2 day golf break at a great price with a friend of mine. The Rooms overlooked the golf course and exceeded my expectations. We were in the main building. All the staff were extremely welcoming, the public rooms were comfortable and meals in the... More

I’m really pleased that once you had finally visited Thorpeness that we didn’t disappoint. We welcome back golfers time and again to this magnificent part of Suffolk and always try to leave our customers wanting more. Perhaps you won’t leave it quite as long next time to visit us? More

Lovely golf course in great condition considering the bad weather we've had this year, very friendly staff, nice rooms, very clean, great food lots of choice for breakfast and evening meal, nice atmosphere perfect for a golf break, we couldn't praise it enough. Superb value with their special offers.

Can you write our marketing literature for us next time please as I am struggling to think of anything else we would want to say about what we offer our customers! Thank you for being so kind. Perhaps I would add that we are trying to be everyone’s favourite club after their own. We look forward to welcoming you back... More

Room was spacious with a nice view but very very hot. We turned off all radiators but still very warm and as French windows didn't open that didn't help. Great breakfast and lovely bar lunch but evening meals selection was only just acceptable. The reception area is tired and in need of freshening up. This hotel offers golf packages and... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. I’m glad you had such an enjoyable stay with us. I have noted your constructive comments about food selection and we have extended our menu choices. The majority of golfing groups act in an appropriate manner but we can get the occasional group that enjoy ‘Adnams finest’ a little too much... More

We stayed for 3 nights, and completed 3 rounds of golf as part of a 58 person golfing group. It is an excellent hotel, clean throughout, comfortable lounge and restaurant, good food, and attentive service in both bar and restaurant. The course is challenging and in excellent condition. The only point that I would make is that the choice of... More
