The hotel as a building is fantastic within a quiet setting. However golf club members always get served fist, even if your next to be served at the bar. Very Noisy in the bar when club members celebrate the days playing. Then driving home or piling into one room for the night. We had tweenty drunken golfers staying a few... More

If your looking for a great Suffolk golf getaway than look no further than Thorpeness Golf & Country Club ! Our team joined several local businesses to celebrate the Christmas period at the country club with a Michael Jackson themed evening and dancing till midnight ! Great hospitality, service and mixed freindly crowd. The country club is a 10 minute... More

I love Thorpeness Hotel & Country Club 😍 the golf course is immaculate and a perfect challenge for any golfer. The hotel is charming, a little dated in places but that all adds to it's appeal. The staff are warm, welcoming and happy to go the extra mile. The food is delicious with plenty of choice. I've put off doing... More

My wife and I wanted to spend a quiet night away by the coast - this place hit every requirement. Our room overlooked the golf course, which was a wonderful view and it was great watching golfers tee off, despite the weather. We didn't spend too much time in the room as we wanted to see the surrounding area. When... More

The hotel is an excellent alternative to paying Aldeburgh prices (and there's no parking problem). We have used the hotel twice and both rooms have been very good - this time we stayed in the 'lodge' that is separate from the main building but only by about 40 metres. Golfers tend to start out at dawn and the area around... More

Thanks for your feedback and delighted you had such an enjoyable time with us. As the home of Thorpeness Golf Club there are always golfers around the course and clubhouse and they are just as keen to be good hosts to all, golfer or not. Our staff are crucial to our success and we try to offer that home away... More

Really nice relaxing homely hotel. Would definitely stay there again. Not the best food, but so comfortable and quiet can overlook the food. If you like plain food it will be fine. Really appreciated how helpful the staff were. Loved being able to walk down to the Meare at the bottom of the garden.

Have been at the hotel for some weeks now and have to say the bar area is very much golf themed with all of the past captains names on the wood panelling. If you are a golfer you would be in the ideal place to play and socialise. The restaurant is nicely positioned with views across the golf course. For... More

Thanks for your feedback and am delighted you have been enjoying your stay. The free Wi-Fi has just been upgraded so disturbed to hear that it has dropped out occasionally. Braid Lodge block that is located behind the pro shop is ideal for groups as they are slightly away from the hotel. We try to create that “favourite golf club... More

My husband and I got married at Thorpeness Country Club (which is linked to the hotel) in November (2014). We held both our ceremony and reception at the club, the venue was easily decorated but did not require much to add to it as it is already lovely. We had several meetings with the venue coordinators prior to the day... More

When you book a deal with a golf club, your expectations of food and service are not high. Fish and chips, steak pie - that kind of thing. Thorpeness offers a three-course menu of fine dining in a spacious room beautifully laid out with superior table settings. We had grilled sardines and bruschetta to start, followed by a succulent confit... More
