The hotel located on the edge of this unusual and quirky seaside village is only a few minutes from the beach and adjacent to the famous Thorpeness Meare. Built in the 1920's as part of an Edwardian holiday village the hotel offers recently refurbished facilities incorporating 36 en-suite rooms, two bars and a restaurant, drawing room, library and snooker room. The atmosphere is in keeping with the traditonal and original concept but with modern facilities and 3 star standards. Some bedrooms overlook the well known and challenging 18 holes golf course, and several the Meare and gardens. The terrace is ideal for al fresco dining or a pre dinner drink during the warmer months. Menus feature fresh local produce either for full dining in the restaurant or for a lighter menu in the Patio Bar. Wines and beers are supplied by Adnams of Southwold who are well know for quality, including local Suffolk cider, Broadside Beer and award winning wines. The hotel offers excellent golf, and cycle hire all year round and in the Summer rowing boats. The fashionable seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold are well worth a visit, or browse the home and gardens shops at Snape Maltings, home of the Aldeburgh Music Festival.
