Great place to stay, great food and good golf course.Rooms are clean and well maintained. Staff are always helpful and pleasant. Sometimes could do with more staff behind the bar when busy,, other than that no complaints.

Stayed here for a two night three day golf break in early September It's a decent golf course and the hotel is just a few yards from the first tee. The hotel has a nice large sized bar and the breakfast and evening meals are of a very good standard. The rooms we had (in the building near the main... More

Visited for a golf break. Everything was as expected having been here several times before. All the staff were friendly and helpful, food was really good, with one minor exception (a bacon roll that appeared to use bacon left over from breakfast and was rather too dark and crispy, I chose not to send it back, but I am happy...

We stayed at the Thorpeness Golf Club for 2 nights and were delighted with our stay. Celebrating an anniversary we were welcomed by a bottle of wine and chocolates in our room, kindly given by the hotel! Amazing location, great service and delicious food! A mile or so walk to the coast and a great river nearby which you can... More

A group of us were looked after by the Thorpeness Hotel for three days golfing. They did very well to accommodate 24 different individuals who all wanted breakfast / lunch /dinner at the same time. My room was great, overlooking the golf course. The food was very good, not quite excellent, hence the overall rating, again I put this down... More

Played golf here last week and have to say it's in great condition considering it's September. Fairways are lush and green rolled true. It's a heathland course so if you're not straight bring some extra golf balls as once you end up in the Heather you never see your ball again! Great finishing hole with view of the house in... More

Whilst staying in this area my husband and I popped in for an evening meal. Pleasant staff, great location and the fish and chips was better than the well known establishment in Aldeburgh. We we pleasantly surprised and great value.

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
