    Historical Traveler Reviews Hintlesham Hall

    A real treat

    from

    Just staid one night and already want to go back, the hotel location is a heaven of peace within a beautiful park.

    We were in the " tisane" room (where dogs are welcome) and loved it (airy,very spacious,comfy bed) just sorry we could not enjoy the private enclosed patio with sunloungers due to the weather.

    The restaurant requires a dress code but both a la carte and set menus can be served in room if prefered.

    Had some much enjoyed treatments in the beauty rooms, I was a bit disappointed by the "spa" : one building with fitness rooms + fairly small swimming pool and beauty rooms and another building housing the golf club + sauna & jaccuzi but apparently they are working on that so that will improve and the spa won't feel like an afterthoughtas it does now.

    To make it even better we found the staff to be professional and really keen to make our stay a pleasant one.

    Hintlesham Hall Hotel - it makes you feel special

    from

    I have today enjoyed another lunch at Hintlesham Hall Hotel. I am fortunate to be able to visit Hintlesham Hall regularly and to my mind the service, standard of cuisine and value for money are without equal in Mid Suffolk. Indeed, I have recently had dinner at Claridges which was pleasant but very expensive. I much prefer and enjoy my times at Hintlesham Hall Hotel.

    The hotel is set in its own grounds in the lovely Mid Suffolk countryside and can cater for your arrival by helicopter or motor car.

    The style is formal but one is relaxed and comfortable. The hotel staff have a pleasant and courteous demeanour and are attentive to one's needs. Any one of the principal dining rooms is gracious or indeed a room for a private function. I always enjoy my coffee in one of the lounges - all beautifully decorated and with flower displays.

    The meals are always enjoyable and cater for all tastes. What marvellous value for a top class hotel - lunch at 28.50 and that included my drinks before and with lunch and coffee following.

    I am a Solicitor and would reocmmend the hotel to anyone and from any walk of life since it always makes one feel special; do leave a table for me!

    A really excellent venue

    from

    I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel in May this year. My aim was for a week of rest and relaxation and the hotel and its staff certainly provided me with both. The room was wonderful, clean and kept to a very high standard. Room service provided me with regular drinks and afternoon tea, all of which arrived promptly and beautifully presented. The grounds of the hotel are wonderful and provided me with relaxing walks and superb areas in which to sit. The staff provided one of the highest services that I have received at any hotel, from the moment you were greeted at the front door to the moment they loaded by luggage into my car on the day I left. The main section of the hotel has been maintained to a high standard and this makes dining the most wonderful experience. There was a choice of menu at each meal, from a full English or continental breakfast, to one of the most stunning evening menus I have seen for some time. At each meal I felt well cared for and doted upon, while dining on beautifully prepared and presented cuisine. I would have no problem recommending this hotel to others.

    Horrible Hotel

    from

    My wife & I visited this hotel for a wedding reception. We found faded, dirty furniture, torn curtains & an overall feeling of maintainance long over-due. The gent's toilet was smelly & not regularly tidied & cleaned. The hotel appears not to have a coherent policy on smoking. As non-smokers, there was no escape indoors. We would NEVER return as residents.

    Excellent Friendly Professional Staff!

    from

    From the start of my visit all my needs were anticipated and I was able to leave all my arrangements in the capable hands of the Hall's staff.

    The food in the restaurant is excellent and the midweek lunch menu was particularly good value, you get an aperitif with your canapes, 3 courses with plenty of choices, a glass of wine and coffee - all for under 30.

    I was particularly lucky to be staying when the new bar opened and spent many an hour relaxing whilst enjoying a good pint of ale!

    I also found it a pleasant surprise to have wireless broadband available at no cost, in fact I'm submitting this review from the hotel at this moment. Even though this stay is mainly leisure it's always nice to keep in contact with e-mails etc while away from home.

    The decor in the public areas is very grand but not imposing and it's easy to feel welcome and at home.

    If you're a golf fanatic like me then the golf course offers a few challenges for even the most accomplished golfer and preferential green fees make it very attractive.

    My room was in the main building and very spacious with all the normal amenities and the bed was nice and firm so a good night's sleep was never a problem.

    All in all a great short break!

    Wonderful Service!

    from

    I was greeted at the front door of this beautiful hotel by name and invited to leave my car keys which was parked for me. I was shown with my husband to the reception desk and my bags transported to my room - a nice change to the usual struggle that one experiences at most hotels at check in.

    I suffer a gluten food allergy and the hotel had made fantastic preparations for my stay including ordering special bread and directing me through the menu at dinner. Every care had been taken.

    The room was large and filled with home comforts such as interesting magazines, books and dressing gowns to wear. The grounds are beautiful and the hotel even offers a selection of wellingtons to explore further!

    The staff were truly amazing and I received service that compared well with Claridges in London. The relaxed atmosphere even produced a friendly chat with other guests across the relaxing and stately lounge after dinner when enjoying coffee and chocolates.

    The room was lovely and quiet so a good nights sleep followed a gorgeous dinner.

    Like staying in a stately home where you are in charge! I wish I had booked for longer and will definately return!

    Terrible value for money

    from

    Hintlesham Hall advertises itself as one of the best small luxury hotels in the world. The reality is very different! At an overall cost of 300 for one night I would not have expected, taps that fall off, luke warm breakfast, my wife and I being offered seats at seperate tables at breakfast! and a bar that is essentialy a trestle table covered in a blanket. The mini bar offers corked wines but no bottle opener and a bottle of wine that was brought to our room on Friday night had still not been removed when we left on Sunday. The levels of service are in general very poor and come nowhere near the price you are expected to pay.

    Don't Even Think About It!

    from

    What a disappointment for our Mothers Day weekend. It all begins with not being able to open the front door as the place is so poorly maintained it makes one weep. It was once very grand I'm sure. We had the Queen Anne Suite which was a whooping 295 pounds per night! For that we had a mattress that leaned considerably, thread bare furniture in the lounge, dusty public areas, walls and doors that hadn't seen a coat of paint and to top it off, were charged for the newspaper that we were asked if we wanted!!!

    Beautiful country hotel

    from

    Excellent hotel set in beautiful grounds. Within 15 miles of Constable country & under 10 miles from Ipswich. Good sized double four poster bedroom in the main hall. Room was upgraded without request. Very good value is the lunch which seems poular with non hotel residents & is priced around 27.50 inc drink + glass of wine + coffee.

    No hesitation in returning to this hotel where the staff are very friendly & helpful.

    Look no further!

    from

    Ideal for a special occasion or just a few nights away. The food is excellent, the staff are brilliant and the hotel is just wonderful.

Roger was a marine engineer with Ken on the British Energy, the BP oil tanker on which I sailed with Ken for 5 months and so also got to know Roger. Friday we went on a very interesting tour of the local brewery the Greene King. This is a very large brewery producing an assortment of different ...

    Wheathampstead is another really quaint village with little shops, narrow walkways, lots of pubs and a few churches. Wheathampstead is situated on the river Lee and has history dating back to before history started..... stuff here is really old, as are the people! We had a great time at Pete & Gill's, a beautiful piano recital from Claire, tea and cake (soooooo British!) before heading back to North Weald for another ...
