16th century, Grade 1 listed manor house hotel set within 175 acres of Suffolk countryside with 32 luxury bedrooms and an award-winning restaurant

Dating back to the 1400s, Hintlesham Hall is an impressive building with traditional decor, which is steeped in history.


Hintlesham Hall is used today as a plush four red star hotel serving award-winning cuisine. Extremely popular for weddings – large and small, and an excellent venue for corporate hire, the Hall is an impressive and versatile grade l listed building nestled in the tranquil Suffolk countryside. A little spot of luxury in beautiful surroundings, only an hour away from Stansted airport and a short drive from Ipswich town centre, the Hall offers a fine dining experience, one-of-a-kind stately bedrooms, stunning views and our own small, but perfectly formed, spa for a little more added luxury.

Hintlesham Hall is extremely well placed for exploring Suffolk’s delightfully unspoilt 16th century wool merchants’ villages, its pretty river estuaries and ‘Constable Country’. Newmarket racecourse and the coastal town of Aldeburgh, famous for its music and food festivals, are within easy reach, as are Lavenham, Long Melford and Woodbridge, with their numerous antique shops. Cambridge, with its magnificent university architecture, and the cathedral city of Norwich are a comfortable drive away. Ipswich’s vibrant waterfront area is just four miles away, making it an idyllic area for guests to visit for afternoon or evening drinks. Hintlesham Hall also offers a variety of local walks, and is also is a perfect retreat for those who wish to go nowhere at all.
