The Railway Inn is a great place to stay. We were made very welcome and were pleased to be asked if we wanted veggie sausages for our breakfast, as we are vegetarians. Nice pub, decent room, excellent beer from Adnams and a very thoughtful host, Aldeburgh is a very good place to visit and we hope when we come back... More

We have just spent a lovely weekend at The Railway Inn, Aldeburgh. Shown to our room by the very friendly landlady who was able to give her recommendations of where to eat in town (just 10 minutes walk from the B&B) we had a lovely double room, extremely clean and well presented with everything we needed, including a fabulous shower....

This is my second visit to The Railway and I was as pleased as the first time I visited. I had to stay in the twin room as the single was booked which was completely fine. The room was spacious, tidy and very clean, and so was the bathroom. You could hear some noise from downstairs which is what you... More

We arrived and were shown to our room, it was a twin bedded room right at the front of the pub which meant we were pretty much over the bar, the room was small and the toilet/shower room was absolutely tiny and dirty, you could only open the door just over halfway because it hit the bed. After going out... More

Hello Alan I have only just been alerted to the review you put on Tripadvisor last week. Suffice to say my husband and I are very upset and also baffled as to why you didn't tell us there was a problem at the time. The twin room measures 4x4.4 metres with an added reasonable size ensuite. The room is not... More

Popped into this pub one evening and found it a pleasant and inviting place. Have to say the staff were very good even though it was reasonably busy. I have not stayed or eaten here but if I were looking for a no-frills B&B in the area it would have to be considered. Note it is slightly out of town,... More

We were greeted pleasant landlady who showed us our room. We enjoyed our stay. The location was nice, the people were nice, the food was nice, the room was roomy, clean and provided tea/coffee making facilities. If we visit the area again we will definitely stay there again unless we are unlucky and they are fully booked.

My partner and I had a family engagement in Aldeburgh and booked a twin room at The Railway Inn for £70/room/night. On checking in to the Railway on a wednesday lunchtime we noticed the bar was full of friendly locals enjoying a pub quiz. We were met by Shirl who was extremely helpful in sourcing some toiletry items as I... More

Stayed in the single room. Very small but quite adequate for one person. Everything I needed...excellent shower in the little en suite, hospitality tray, hairdryer, tv and towels with shower gel and soap provided. Extremely comfortable bed. Generous breakfast with quality sausages and friendly hosts who cared about their service. Clean and comfortable bargain priced stay just ten minutes walk... More

My husband and I have just got back home from a great weekend in Aldeburgh. The railway inn was brilliant! We had the double room which was lovely, clean and spacious. About 10 min walk to town/beach. Couple of good pubs in town and several nice places to eat. Will be back!
