4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff were all very friendly. The golf course tough but fair. The standard of food and accommodation is 'on a par' with the AA 3 star rating. If you order lunch at the bar it can take quite a long time if the hotel has a few guests as one would expect in summer!

I really like this place, not because we play golf, but for the fact it's dog friendly and there are rooms that open onto a patio area. That's where it ends really. The staff are pleasant, but the food is not up to scratch anymore. The toiletries are smaller than they used to be and the towels aren't great sometimes.... More

After a twenty-eight year hiatus I suggested a few of us did a 'play & stay' at Thorpeness GC in July. The course itself is an excellent test especially as it was very firm with fast running conditions (lots of irons off the tees for the longer hitters). Greens are first class and on the two occasions (in 36 holes)... More

My husband and I stayed at the Thorpeness for one night. When we first arrived and went into the reception/lounge I must say I felt a bit disappointed as these areas were a bit shabby and looked in need of a bit of TLC. However, when we checked into our room my disappointment subsided as the room was clean and... More

Visited with my partner. We upgraded to a room with balcony which was nice but it was shared with all other rooms which meant no privacy. Corridors needed upgrade but room did not disappoint. Room was good large bed clean room. Bathroom little disappointing grouting missing and a little mould. However staff very friendly. Breakfast was very good a little... More

I had read mixed reviews of here so did wonder. Glad to say it was all good. Our room was a basic one but it was lovely and spacious . The beds were great and the bathroom excellent. We were cycling and thus casually dressed but we were made very welcome in the bar at night The breakfast was lovely.... More

Stayed for a night whilst exploring the area. Our room (35) overlooked the golf course. It was very peaceful with a large comfortable bed however several issues let the place down. The floorboards creaked terribly in the bedroom. The bathroom was poorly designed with the shower placed under a sloping part of the roof being anyone over 5'10" would be... More

I had a night here away on business. The good bits: it's very quiet, on the edge of beautiful lakeside scenery and the rooms - if mine was typical - are spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was distinctly acceptable and cheerfully delivered. On the downside, England lost to Iceland, but that was hardly down to the hotel! They could look at... More

I had played the course before and wanted to revisit with friends for an overnight trip. We stayed for two nights and had dinner b&b included. The value for money was excellent, service good and a top golf course. A trip to southwold on the saturday was a great night out. I would plan for taxis well ahead tho. Thanks... More
