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."

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 😄”
