Well, last visit was a disaster. However since that date they have a new manager Ajay and it would seem many new staff, so we traveled back this weekend. I must say, having been in business for many years, seldom can i recall any business turning around in such a short space of time !!. It is indeed a different...

Spend an over night at the Thorpeness Hotel for two days of golf. Let's start with the golf. A great course, that is a bit more than a hit and hope. The greens were fast and true. And the fairways had been looked after. Very picturesque. We all loved it. The hotel was very nice, warm and welcoming and the...

We made a list minute booking for an over night stay with a evening meal and breakfast included. Having done this over the last few years we had no hesitation in making the booking. Whilst the golf was as good as ever the accommodation and the evening meal were not! The accommodation is starting to look shabby and well past...

We stayed in the Braid Lodge, behind the pro shop, so my experience relates only to that building. I have no idea what the rest of the rooms were like, but ours was tired and basic. Worse yet, the windows and doors had a layer of black mould that was disgusting. One of our group spent a restless night unable...

Enjoyed the golf - testing and enjoyable course. Room was huge and sparsely furnished. Tea, coffee etc on a TV unit with no power nearby. Wooden window frames in poor condition. Hall way in shabby decorative order. Breakfast choice was excellent but cooked to order and very, very slow. Dinner was good.

We have stayed here many times in the past, but this last weekend was very disappointing. The golf was as good as ever, possibly a bit overcrowded, but not too bad. However, we had, as always, booked a twin superior room. The beds had very soft springy mattresses which had springs poking up, so much so, that you could get...

Great course and good value twilight rates .Good condition and some fun holes. Friendly members and all in all a good experience. We didn't use the catering so can't comment on the hotel. This is a great area to explore with golf clubs in your car.
