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...

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

My friend and I stayed earlier this week for two nights....we wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel was lovely. It has an enviable position in the town, just a little away from the main shops etc to ensure quiet but overlooking the sea with gardens and two lounges, one very cosy and the other light and sunny, facing...

I traveled with my 84 year old mother to attend the Benjamin Britten Festival. Unfortunately, she is not great at steps and we were on the second floor (which in U.S. standards, is the third floor.) As the hotel was booked solid, we were unable to change rooms. Everything else was fine. Very nice breakfast, exceedingly kind help. We were... More

Thank you for leaving a review. I do hope you stay with us again and that we are able to get you in a room on the first or ground floors. Fathers Day is a very busy time for us but the restaurant is full nearly every Sunday as it is very popular amongst residents and non-residents alike. The sitting... More

A lovely hotel in a wonderful location opposite the beach. The whole feel of the hotel is relaxed and genteel without being pretentious. Aldeburgh itself is quiet and unassuming with an air of sophistication. A good choice to celebrate my husbands birthday. Our sea facing room was on the first floor and was nicely decorated. It did however have a... More

Thank you for leaving a review I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope your husband enjoyed the night away for his birthday. The Pimms is certainly a must on the terrace at this time of year and the fresh mint and Suffolk strawberries add to the experience. We too look forward to your return visit Best... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry for the evening you experienced recently. We did have a busy peak time on this evening meaning that a lot of guests came in at once and admittedly this put pressure on the staff and mistakes were made. I gauged from speaking to you on the night that you are regular diners... More

Hotel in superb location just across the road from Aldeburgh's shingle beach and local fishermen's shacks. Staff friendly and efficient, attractively furnished and comfortable public areas, spotless table linen and faultless food. Our sea facing bedroom was very comfortable and well equipped, right down to a pair of binoculars to view the passing shipping and wildlife! We were able to... More

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you were able to use the hotel as a base to explore the local area. Our private car park is certainly a bonus and moreover the seaview can be enjoyed with the binoculars from a large amount of our seafacing bedrooms. The linen we also feel gives us a point of difference... More

I am so pleased we had a room left to welcome you to the hotel for an overnight stay. Room 10 is a standard sized bedroom but the balcony is a big bonus. It is good to read that you enjoyed your dinner and I apologise for the breakfast being slightly overcooked. That said I do hope you choose the... More

To stay at the Wentworth Hotel in Aldeburgh is to take a trip back in time to an era when life was leisurely and not measured in emails. The hotel is a road's width from the stony beach which is dotted with tarred fisherman's huts which provide daily supplies to the hotel's varied menu. If you are up before 5am... More

We made our first ever visit to the Wentworth back in May, for a 4-night stay. The rooms were lovely, as were the staff, the food and the public areas. Couldn't fault it! Aldeburgh itself is a perfect base from which to explore the local area.
