Hospitality and service are key features at this imposing Grade I listed country house hotel, situated in 175 acres of grounds and landscaped gardens. Originally a manor house dating from the Elizabethan era, the building was extended in the 17th and 18th centuries. It was a Red Cross hospital in World War II, and has been a hotel for nearly 40 years. Individually decorated bedrooms offer a high degree of comfort; each is tastefully furnished and equipped with many thoughtful touches. The Hintlesham Spa has three treatment rooms (including one for couples), a sumptuous relaxation area, nail bar, and enclosed outdoor area with hot tub. The spacious public rooms include a series of comfortable lounges, and an elegant restaurant which serves fine classical cuisine based on top-notch and, where practical, local ingredients. WiFi is offered throughout. A helicopter landing area is also available.
