Popped in , not members, we were holidaying in Thorpeness. Probably not seen by visitors as somewhere to go as golf club, but highly recommended. Great views over the lake from terrace. We Went for fish and chips , a local Adnams beer and also G&T. Great service, beautifully fresh fish and chips and quite reasonable too.

We needed a room for the night after a concert at Snape Maltings, just a few miles away and chose Thorpeness Hotel. I knew that it was primarily a golfing hotel and the golfers certainly do have a huge presence there but it is still a hotel with rooms, bar and restaurant. If you don't know Thorpeness, it was a...

Recently enjoyed a short stay as part of a golf coaching package. Staff were welcoming and we were provided with a large,clean, comfortable room. Dinner and breakfast menus were good. The restaurant was light with pleasant outlooks and the service was very good indeed. Lunch available in the bar and patio area and menu good. Forgot my phone charger ,... More

We stayed at this hotel as we were attending a wedding at the country club and certainly wouldn't have chosen to stay there ourselves but it is where we were recommended to stay as it was local and could accommodate a lot of us. Initial impressions were poor, it was dark, run down and quite dreary. We were greeted by... More

Great two day stay. The course proved difficult as it was so dry being August but I have never hit the ball so far! Bunkers are a problem but that is golf. Accommodation is good although I had a problem with the shower head, it did not stay on the pole and I got soaked but at least it was... More

I have been to better hotels, played better golf courses and been served by more attentive staff - BUT - take all three together and this place is hard to beat. The hotel is, mainly, two arms of accommodation sitting either side of the main hotel building. The rooms are large, comfortable and reasonably well appointed with the caveat that... More

Slightly overpriced but this is a nice old-fashioned hotel in a nice position. Good golf course on site. Rooms are large and are being updated but the hotel needs a coat of paint on the outside. Service was OK but flexibility is needed on check-in so that rooms that are ready can be allocated on arrival rather than reception sticking... More

Thank you for your recent review and feedback. Our check in time at 2pm is when all rooms will be ready but we do aim to have as many rooms as possible ready for guests who arrive earlier. I was pleased to hear you enjoyed the golf course and the food and we are continuously striving to improve our service... More

Played in the mixed couples competition in July which included a three night stay. The meals were very good except for the dessert on the last night when knowingly sub standard food was allowed to leave the kitchen. Disappointing. The rooms were of good size and the bed was comfortable. My party of golfers all agreed that the course was... More

A family reunion (of sorts) brought us to the hotel for two nights. We stayed in two king/en suite rooms in the outer building next to the parking lot. We were not there for golf, but there were few places available at short notice in town. Celebrations: servers are Johnny on the spot. Bar tenders, dinner, and breakfast service was... More
