Just got back from a couple of days at Thorpeness. Nice golf course, nice hotel, lovely food and great staff. The course was in good condition considering the time of year, wind was blowing which made it tricky, and the rain didn't help on Monday, but great couple of days. Food and Bar area are very well staffed, Food was...

Arrived at the course a few hours early on the first day so stopped in the bar for a breakfast bap & tea. Indications were good, the food was excellent, service good and very reasonably priced. Then first bit of bad news, our tee time had been booked following a society of 30 and we were a two ball. We...

It's hard to imagine a more stunning setting - lakes, islands, mist, sun, sunsets, sunrise, the Meare - what an incredible location. Parking was easy and very close to accomodation. The rooms are a tiny bit tired BUT this may be because I had my dog with me. The room size was huge - king size bed, shared balcony, overlooking...

Great weekend for golf with friends, food was fantastic as was the wide selection of drinks. Great staff, always helpful and informative. Only slight criticism is that the rooms are a little dated, however, you don't spend too much time in them and I believe the price paid reflected that well. Not yet been disappointed at Thorpeness, I look forward...

Visited the hotel with my family and I was not impressed. Rates are not cheap at all for what the hotel offers. Rooms are basic and need refurbishment (especially bathrooms). Breakfast just basic and staff at breakfast not very friendly. Staff at the reception were better though and helpful.

The bar is open to non-residents so we thought we'd pop in to see what was on offer. Ordered at the bar (£14.95 per person for full afternoon tea) and a while later our 3 tier tea platter arrived. Varied choice of sandwiches, chocolate eclairs, brownies, small pannacotta and coulis, warm scones, cream and jam and a lemon mousse with...

A great choice for our one night away. Room was surprisingly large and light, bathroom well-fitted and had recently been refurbished. Food was great, both when we ordered from the bar menu on arrival and also breakfast brought to our room the next morning. The staff were ALL incredibly polite and welcoming and made us feel genuinely welcome. Gardens/grounds lead...

Having been to thorpeness a couple of times for day trips when holidaying in the area my wife and I thought we'd take the opportunity to stay here for a short break with our puppy. The hotel itself is lovely, the staff attentive and the food good. The beer selection is excellent and the bar area I will assume can...

My husband and I were invited to a friends 50th birthday celebration in Thorpeness and decided to stay over somewhere to avoid having to drive back to Colchester in the evening. We were recommended this hotel by the friend concerned and so I made some enquiries. I was amazed to be offered an excellent 'off peak' deal for two nights...
