Having stayed at the Wentworth previously we decided on a one night stay so that we could be present in Aldeburgh for the carnival. The room again was in the Darfield House part of the hotel and was of very high standard and extremely comfortable. It had a pleasant view out over the small private garden at the rear. The... More

We stayed at the Wentworth Hotel during the Aldeburgh Festival and had a very pleasant stay. The staff were very polite, helpful and friendly and welcomed our little dog as a guest too. We booked directly with the hotel and were given the summer break rate, which included our room, afternoon tea and a Pimms on arrival and dinner, and... More

A really comfy hotel in an excellent location. Wonderfully clean and comfortable, great staff and really good value and delicious food. We have had a few trips now and it never fails us.

We only stayed one night while passing through but found everything very good. We had a back room which was very nice with a large comfy bed and crisp white sheets. The bathroom was very large and airy with 2 windows. The evening meal was very good and served very efficiently. I would certainly stay here again.

Stopped at the wentworth today for lunch on 'the terrace' very reasonably priced burger, clearly homemade, still pink in the middle with excellent hand cut chips. Along with the view of the sunny aldeburgh beach it was a very good lunchtime choice!

Thank you for your review. It is nice to hear you enjoyed the burger. The chefs spend good time in the kitchen mincing and seasoning the beef and making our burgers. The homemade chips certainly compliment it well. We even make our mayonnaise! We hope to have you back for lunch on the terrace or in one of our lounges... More

Our room ( 34) directly faced the sea, across the promenade via the beached fishing boats and 'fish shacks'. The thoughtfully provided binoculars and wide open windows were a treat in themselves. I have to say this is clearly a Hotel with clientele to match the demographics of the town: not young! The food choice matched or defined that also:... More

We stayed in a room with a sea view & a small tv/sitting room off it . The staff were professional, helpful, polite and cheerful. The rooms were very comfortable and well maintained. The food was good. Three things that seem increasingly difficult to find in one place. It is at the quiet end of Aldeburgh and just a 23... More

Thank you for your review I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and were able to book one of our rooms with the separate lounge area. I completely agree that the service, cuisine and comfortable rooms are three elements that we must get right. It is pleasing therefore that you found all to be of a good standard. The gardens...

Pleasant genteel place to stay for a relaxing few days....300 yards from the main action in Aldeburgh...but far enough to retain its tranquility... Quintessential English....large comfy open lounge areas...good but unpretentious dining ....even down to the somewhat mixed service varying from brusque on occasion at reception....to non existent....20 mins to get a drink at the bar....we called 3 times....to excellent...

My wife and I spent two nights at the Wentworth Hotel recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We decided to stay in Aldeburgh as we had tickets for the final concert in this year's Aldeburgh Festival at the Snape Maltings, just a few miles away, and we wanted to see a little of the town that is so closely associated...

Thank you for your review. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel. Unfortunately we do not have a lift but the five ground floor rooms are spacious and well appointed and two of them still have a sea view. I'm sorry you did not find the binoculars. I asked the housekeeping staff to check... More

One of my long term rules of thumb is never, ever go back to a place; it is never as good as you think it is. I break it for restaurants where I get superb service and food and as often as I am impressed by a return visit I am disappointed. Mrs B thinks I am just a little... More
