FABULOUS! STUNNING! LUXURIOUS!
We booked and stayed on their Romantic Break overnight on June 28, 2023 for our 20th wedding anniversary and nothing but admiration for the grounds food service, staff, room etc. Fabulous dinner and breakfast, first class staff, lovely Superior Double room complete with flowers, chocolates and Prosecco, all included. Lovely break and highly recommended 10/10.
classy afternoon tea
Afternoon Tea. Relaxed atmosphere, delicious food and cakes. Wide choice of teas, and coffees! 2 hours soaking in the roomy comfortable lounge, looked after by attentive though unobtrusive staff. Lovely experience for Suffolk Day 2023.
Superb day out
Wonderful day out. Perfect for adults. Superb gardens with hundreds of interesting sculptures dotted amongst the beautiful flowers - everything about this day out was glorious. Excellent value for money. You can now visit the cafe and shops without paying to go into the gardens.
Hintlesham Hall did not disappoint. We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a wonderfully furnished and large room. The food was first class, service excellent and staff very friendly. We enjoyed very good weather and so we’re able to take advantage of the grounds. Would definitely recommend.
We had a wonderful overnight stay, celebrating our 20th Anniversary. Afternoon tea on the lawn was lovely and the evening meal superb. The staff were always available, despite there also being a wedding on the same day. Would totally recommend and definitely visit again.
Wonderful afternoon tea in impressive setting
Visited Hintlesham hall for the first time with my mother this afternoon. The tea itself was delicious and very generous, the surroundings were impressive and the service was top class. Thank you to all the staff for a super afternoon!
Fabulous hotel and wedding venue
Zoe and the team at Hintlesham hall are just brilliant. Our wedding went without a hitch (other than the one we planned 😉) we had the most brilliant day! We stayed for 2 nights, the food is excellent, the rooms are lovely, and service second to none. We can’t wait to come back and highly recommend Zoe and Hintlesham if you are looking for a wedding venue.
Wedding 💒💍 weekend
I don't even know where to start. My son and daughter in law wedding 💍💒 here on Saturday 15th April. The whole weekend was absolutely amazing. Just faultless from start to finish. Amazing time was had by everyone and a very happy married couple Rooms were beautiful as well as the food, surroundings. Just everything. The staff worked tirelessly and were so friendly. Big thanks to everyone there for making such a wonderful weekend full of so many memories. Hope to come back soon. Our best wishes from Jill and Steve Avery (parents of the groom)
Wonderful from start to finish – we’ve just returned from a two night stay with friends. And our rooms – in the courtyard – were spacious with super king-size beds, and bathrooms with large, walk-in shower and bath tub. Food and service couldn’t be faulted with the venison main course in particular. getting lots of praise. Breakfast was equally as good in terms of food and service and tge choices were impressive, including kippers and eggs Florentine. Particularly good toast too.
Best of 4 star hotels
It is rare, that I will place a review unless an establishment has met all expectations that were sort. This hotel has achieved everything that was expected in terms of atmosphere, quality, friendliness, and professionalism, and also food worthy of stars gained. Based on the service received, I can wholeheartedly recommend it.
A wonderful experience
Attention to detail was evident everywhere. Staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Choice and quality of meals was first class. Extensive range of wines. Room was very comfortable. Beautiful surroundings.
Hintlesham Hall great for out Valentine dinners
Our club has it's Valentine dinners every year, it always seems to be sunny here which makes people happy, the meal was excellent but could be larger, these minimal meals need a plate of veg for people to top up, apart from that everything good apart from another bottle of wine exorbitant.
Nice chilled stay
Nice room and the bed was so comfortable, slept for 9hours solid lol , food was nice too.lovely building with great character,staff was friendly too.Would highly recommend , and looking forward to another stay.
Perfect Family Celebration
Absolute perfection from the time of booking to the time of our departure. We had a total of five rooms,all beautifully appointed, in a well preserved and decorated building-no "shabby chic"here. Without exception, the staff were brilliant,friendly,helpful and efficient. We had a private room for breakfast and dinner and the service at both was exceptional as was the case in our regular visits to the bar. Excellent value for money,given that it cost about £100 for B&B in a pub. This really is our sort of country house hotel. We must think of an excuse to return as soon as possible
A Wonderful Experience
We stayed at Hintlesham Hall for a couple of days to explore Suffolk and do some walking. Everything about the hotel, the room, the staff, the service and dining was as it should be. Can recommend a visit. If you look out for off peak mid week deals it's also very good value for money.
We held our Christmas party and I have no complaints at all, beautiful setting, food was great and nothing was too much trouble. I stayed the night and the room was amazing. Breakfast was excellent too, thank you my whole team loved it! Tracy the events manager was really helpful too
An absolute gem
Beautiful rooms, super friendly and helpful staff. The food was delicious and the atmosphere brilliant. We were staying for a big event, a ball and the hotel absolutely shone. Fantastic food and service. D So Helpful also when I had left something in my room. An absolute gem of a place, beautifully appointed too. I can't wait to come back and experience another stay. Thank you 🙂
A hotel that has it all !
We recently held our wedding at this wonderful hotel. It exceeded our expectations and dreams. Our wedding planner Zoe has the most amazing talents to make any wedding day truly magical. Thank you everyone at Hintlesham Hall for our special day. Bridal suite already booked for our anniversary ! Not enough stars to tick for this exceptional gem of a hotel.
Perfect Family Christmas at Hintlesham
We booked into Hintlesham for the 3-day Christmas break, with my children and their families joining us for a family Christmas Day. It lived up to every expectation we had and more so. We had a beautiful, warm, clean and luxurious room. The service was excellent and the staff were welcoming, attentive and professional. There was plenty of space in our rooms to open presents together and share a glass of champagne and canapés. We had a lovely walk after lunch around the beautiful grounds and kitchen gardens. Perfect!
Hintlesham Hall is an exquisite place to spend time. I have spent Christmas there this year and can only say it was wonderful. On arrival the reception staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious, warm and clean with fruit, tea and coffee waiting. The service in the restaurant was excellent as was the food and wine. The carol singers on Christmas Eve made the evening, before dinner, magical. It set the scene for a Christmas full of enjoyment. Walking in the grounds, when it was not raining was a delight. Looking at the very old trees and imagining the beauty of the grounds in summer has made me determined to return later in the year. Thank you to all the staff who made our Christmas so marvellous
Great hotel for a special occasion
We stayed one night on a bed breakfast and evening meal package. Very spacious room, huge bathroom with separate bath and walk in shower. Super king sized bed, very comfortable. Proper tea and coffee making, and complementary bubbles and chocs. Great meal, attentive but not over fussy service. Excellent breakfast. We’ll be back.
A fantastic weekend at Hintlesham Hall. Our room was superb; spacious and oozing character (we stayed in Ian's Clock Room). Dinner at the restaurant was a full evening affair, delicious food of various courses and post-dinner drinks. Overall, we felt as though we were personal guests in someone's historic home, rather than standard hotel guests, and would highly recommend an overnight stay and dinner.
Absolutely brilliant, couldn't be faulted. Bedroom, great size, in fact every room in the hotel were great sizes. Restaurant superb, service brilliant. Would not hesitate to recommend anyone to go there.
We stayed here for our ‘mini moon’ and we were not disappointed with anything! Beautiful hotel and grounds. Stunning bedroom which was so very kindly and much appreciated upgraded for us. It was spotless!
Great wedding venue
Stayed at the hotel for one night whilst attending a wedding. Did not to set the grounds but wedding facilities were first class and our room, below the clock tower was excellent, very large, and all in excellent condition, as though all recently refurbished. I have seen good deals on the hotel being offered and would say that they are good value and should definitely be taken up
A very Happy Birthday
I booked Hintlesham Hall for my partners Birthday and she was stunned by it. The place is fabulous and our meal was wonderful, however, the portions are nouveau cuisine so you wont feel stuffed after dining here.
Above and beyond service ..
We stayed at Hintlesham Hall for two nights in September, when we went for a wedding in a nearby village. The service we received was excellent .. friendly, professional and enthusiastic. We would like to single out Fiona, who stepped in to offer us a lift in her own car, when we realised we'd left ours at the wedding venue the night before! Without her we would have missed our flight and we will be forever grateful to her.
My 91 year old Mum and her friends, have just had lunch at Hintlesham Hall, the lunch was served in the smaller restaurant with lots of room to enjoy energetic conversation without being over heard. The food was wonderful, served by a lady with endless patience, who was thoughtful and very considerate. Coffee was served in comfortable surroundings where we were able to relax. I thoroughly recommend lunch and having noticed afternoon tea being served as we left, I can recommend that as well.
This is an excellent hotel I would whole heartedly recommend. The surroundings are beautiful and the staff are first class. The hotel was very clean with all amenities you could want. All in all a great place to stay.
We had a great stay here. All the staff were helpful and their service was first class. The restaurant has a great reputation and didn't disappoint, although it it is pricey. We had an excellent spacious room too.
Lovely mid week break
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here at Hintlesham Hall for a quiet few days in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. We were looked after very well and the breakfast was a real treat. The weather was kind and rather warm for the most part. We would really like to return sometime.
Have just come back from a second visit to the wonderful hotel Hintlesham Hall. It was exactly a year since we'd visited and like before the weather was hot and sunny. It's a handsome hotel steeped in history. The grounds are beautiful. Lovely walks including a deer trail. Sally is the wonderful gardener in charge of it all. She's there with a friendly welcome and her husband Graham is the manager. He works in every department managing as well as mucking in with everyone. We sat in the garden enjoying a bottle of chilled white wine. Very nice friendly service from Matt.
This is a superb hotel. Fabulous rooms, glorious food and friendly and efficient staff. We love it, this was our third visit and we're going back in November.
Relaxing and wonderful
Wonderful building and rooms. The food was excellent and the wine really nice. The staff were helpful and smiling and very efficient. It was quiet and comfortable. The gardens were lovely to walk in and it was extremely easy to find. Good safe parking
This is such an amazing hotel and has a real feel of luxury without it feeling uncomfortable.
Upon arrival the reception staff were very accommodating and unbelievably helpful. Apparently we had been booked into a large principle room on the top floor but when they saw my mum had mobility issues they immediately relocated us to a room on the first floor (this was an upgrade to the room too with no additional cost which was an added bonus) However, I believe whatever room you stayed in would have been fantastic.
Perfect stay again
2nd stay and just as good if not better than the first - we had an upgraded room this time (thanks to our son) and it was beautiful - massive! Yes the hotel is old so do not expect modern day decor - but it is extremely clean and well presented. The staff are friendly, polite and attentive. The meal was lovely and my husband still says the breakfast is one of the best he has ever tasted. No doubt we will return again for a special getaway
Old world charm and Suffolk calm
Perfectly located for exploring east Suffolk, Hintlesham Hall has quite a history and the building's venerable age shows in its creaks and angles; a taste of "country house" living. We stayed in a large, comfortable and beautiful room with lovely views of the gardens to the rear of the main house. The staff were always helpful. The house's daily rhythm focused on the restaurant, which we didn't get to try - but the bar menu was very good. Looking forward to our next visit.
Excellent location for a wedding and stay
An amazing venue which has great grounds to wander around as well as everything you would want for your stay in one place. The staff went above and beyond to provide the most incredible wedding day and meet our needs as well as the wedded couple.
Lovely two night satay at this beautiful hotel. We stayed in one of the courtyard rooms which was called Josephine.
Josephine was a lovely large room with a huge bed and windows on three sides , also a nice little outdoor area which would be nice in good weather. The hotel staff were all very friendly and efficient especially the restaurant staff. We went when it was very cold so did not have a look round at the grounds but are hoping to return in better weather. Highly recommend it for comfort , great food and very nice staff
A most enjoyable 2 days away
We very much enjoyed our stay at this beautiful , old palatial hotel. The bedroom was large and very comfortable. Breakfast was beautifully served. We chose to eat supper in the bar , preferring just one course . Both the fish and chips and fish pie were excellent. The staff are very helpful and hotel grounds well kept. A very peaceful area. The hotel is full of character and there's alot of history attached to it.
Booked a 2 night stay for my partners birthday. From the moment we arrived the service from the staff was excellent. The room was lovely and the food, WOW, we are already planning booking a meal in the restaurant it was so nice.
We had the spa booked and this was my first time again excellent and I’m now a convert after over 50 years. So with the lack of holidays abroad for a while we are looking at spa weekends.
Thank you for such a hassle free perfect weekend
My daughter booked us in for afternoon tea as a treat,and it truly was a treat. Our tea was served in the most beautiful room sitting on a comfortable chair. The china and table linen was very nice,and the food delicious. The waiter who served us was attentive and efficient,but never hovering round us. Ideal.A very happy afternoon.
A great hotel. Old but with feeling. We stayed in the Rialto room and it was so quaint and comfortable. The restaurant was classy and the service was first class. A very relaxing atmosphere all round.
I would go as far as to say that this was the BEST meal out that I have EVER had. We came for Afternoon Tea in the garden and we both agreed that it was a 10/10 experience. We were greeted with joy and warmth by the reception team, and looked after impeccably well by the restaurant team. Big shoutout to Shannon who was looking after us- we agreed she would be an amazing manager due to her faultless interpersonal skills. We had everything we needed for the entire time; cocktails that were clearly made with love and enthusiasm constantly in-front of us. Flawless experience. The food was absolutely divine, with sandwich flavours that had been planned carefully and cakes executed with extreme precision. Set up picture perfect.
One night break
Really enjoyed the stay at Hintlesham Hall. We had a lovely superior room that was very spacious and a fabulous meal in the evening. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. The setting is lovely although were were unable to access some of the gardens due to the wedding taking place at the same time along with the rather exciting weather conditions! Thank you
Wedding couldn't have been any better
We got married on Monday 31st May 2021 (feels like a lifetime away now!) and the whole entire day from start to finish was absolutely brilliant (as well as of course, the night before and the breakfast the day after the wedding!)
The day ran like clockwork, Rosanna on reception was so helpful and was there to lend a hand when required. Zoe Bell (event manager) was superb and she oversaw the wedding from 8am in the morning till fairly late that day. Yuriy (restaurant manager) was exceptional as was his staff (Holly and co) and Grahame (hotel manager) were here there and everywhere, making sure we all had a brilliant day. I also have to say, the breakfast the following morning was also very, very good.
The food, service and everything in between was amazing, I honestly could not fault a thing. I highly recommend Hintlesham Hall as a Wedding venue.
Don’t hesitate to book.
"Superb and charming hotel, merely 32 bedrooms so one has a feel of personal attention. Breakfasts were plentiful with good quality ingredients. The chefs are evidently highly skilled as the fine dinning was indeed just that. Some of the ingredients are picked from the gardens, which are beautifully colourful. In the vegetable garden, I found so many different crops, yellow courgette, tree spinach, purple potatoes, onions, artichoke, cabbage, black currants, strawberries, raspberries, runner beans, peas and many more that I didn’t recognise. There’s a charming lake surrounded by beautiful flowers and it was here we had afternoon tea, which could easily rival the Dorchester or the Ritz with its charming miniature homemade cakes. I can’t recommend this well managed and groomed…"
"We stayed at Hintlesham Hall on Saturday 19 June. The hotel and grounds were outstanding. Our room was more like a beautifully adorned apartment. The staff were amazing, so helpful and friendly. We had breakfast and dinner there. The food was A1 ( excellent). The hotel was completely Covid safe and there were some very nice extra touches such as the piano player at dinner and the splendid array of refreshments in our room. We had a wonderful stay - best hotel we've been to in a long while. We can't wait to go back. Thank you for making our stay wonderful."
Don’t hesitate to book.
We have been going to Hintlesham Hall for many years now, mainly just before Christmas when the decorations are up.
We had arranged to visit again with friends last year before the pandemic forced us to cancel the booking.
We got around to re-booking and visited last Sunday (13th) for lunch, overnight stay and breakfast.
It was great to be back and despite having to wear masks when moving around indoors and a couple of other minor changes it was back to being the first class service, accommodation and food we have have come to enjoy.
We were fortunate to enjoy excellent warm weather during our stay which enabled us to have coffee outside after lunch, overlooking part of the gardens.
Hintlesham Hall is always a pleasure to visit and we look forward to going back soon.
It is rare that we can find nothing negative to comment on. Hintelsham is outstanding and we will come back as soon as we can."
Karen and Steve x ( and of course little Peanut and Biscuit) x"
All in all a wonderful evening/stay and we very much look forward to returning."
So Hintlesham Hall a breath of fresh air.
Rossana and Molly on reception are so lovely and welcoming.
Oliver in the restaurant is so efficient and nice, smiling and helpful. A credit to the establishment.
The Chef served superb salmon not too cooked and fillet beef with accompaniments awakening the senses.
We have stayed here a lot of times and will be back.
Unfortunately no Yuri who was greatly missed. Merry Christmas"
Overall the deal was brilliant value and we would definitely go again"

Thank you for making my wife’s birthday so special, despite Covid restrictions. I know we will return again and again as a special place in our memories.”
We have stayed here around 6yrs ago and have walked around the grounds since but returning us always a delight for us and we always feel such at home. We were greeted by Yuri and although I was wearing a fave mask and it being many years since we saw him - he knew who we were and our names - a true professional 👍🏻
We stayed for lunch which was very tasteful - served to the top order and well presented.
We will always return to this delightful venue even if it were only to see the staff Thank you all at Hintlesham 😄”
