We came here for afternoon tea as a family of 8. We booked in advance and was expecting to be sat in the dining area but we were sat in a small seating area to the side of reception on sofas. It was ok but the table was a bit small for all of the afternoon tea and the chairs... More

We were planning to eat in Thorpeness or Aldeburgh. Places and villages were looking busy with no where to park. We drove down the lane to Thorpeness Hotel and golf club, where we parked. The gentleman at the bar was polite, helpful and made us feel welcome. Tables were moved so we had lots of room. The meals we had... More

The golf course and car park were packed but amid four or five family parties there was plenty of tables available in the restaurtant. The linen was dazzling. Fresh iced water was put on... More

Dinner here was last minute. Romeo attended to us and he gave us fantastic service. Food was delicious and plentiful. Would eat here again without hesitation. Breakfast was varied and very tasty.

Comfortable rooms if quite dear. Food in evening very good from small menu. Breakfast ok but spoiled by vinegary poached eggs. Avoided a second evening meal as the menu was small and we felt we had had what we fancied already. Went for Thai in Aldeburgh which we can recommend. See separate review.

We ordered the fish plater for two, which included mackeral, smoked salmon, tempura battered squid, potted shrimps, anchovies and a salad, when it arrived there was no salmon and bread was not included. We asked... More

We discovered the Hotel/Golf club at the end of a private road and wandered into their immaculately kept gardens. We decided on their Afternoon Tea and although the service was not the quickest we were pleasantly surprised with the quality and quantity of the food. The waitress brought it out to us in the garden and the finger sandwiches (some... More
