We loved our stay here in October. I wanted a sea view for my partner's birthday and the room we had was exactly that. The staff were energetic and really wanted to please. We would definitely go back

We recently stayed at the Brudenell and had a thoroughly relaxing weekend. It was about 25 years since I last visited the town and have to say that it still has a lovely old fashioned quality that you don't find in many seaside towns. The Brudenell itself is a lovely hotel, just the right size for a weekend break, not... More

This is an old grande dame of a building doing very well to keep up to date while still retaining some individuality and charm. As ephemeral and unpretentious as the seascape of Aldeburgh itself, the Brudenell would be worth a stay even if it wasn't the only serious player in town. Highlights: - Unbeatable location right on the pebbles -... More

The Bru, as it is called by its friends, is right on the seafront of this pretty, elegant seaside town. The hotel is light and airy, decorated in seaside colours of sand and blue. If the weather is good or you're feeling hardy, you can have your breakfast/ dinner outside on the patio. I got my husband out there once,... More

My wife and I were here for a short stay in October. Room was adequate (no sea view), food ditto. Rather lackadaisical service, Superb position but that's why you pay top dollar prices. Personally we prefer the White Lion or the Wentworth at the other end of town, with equally attractive views over the sea, despite also being horrendously priced... More

The Brudenell has been on my wish list for many years and how disappointing the realisation was when we stayed there for two nights in September. Willing to pay an inflated price for a superior sea view room we were of the opinion that this hotel must be top notch. Quite how the Brudenell is able to command these outrageous... More

We stayed for a night at the very end of the school holidays as a last minute seaside treat. The hotel is right on the sea front with only a narrow lane and the sea wall separating us from the beach. There is no through traffic on the lane so it was safe for our daughter to pop to the... More

Strong points: Comfortable room with sofa in bay sea-view window, nice linen and robes, good standard of housekeeping, wifi in room worked well, filtered water in room was a nice touch. Room was spacious with plenty of room for our dog crate - fido enjoyed his welcome biscuit! Could do better: Lethargic lift, low pressure shower, breakfast & dinner were... More

Beautiful décor, wonderful views, great food, very well run hotel. Only two nights and we were so sad to leave our stunning first floor sea view room which had a great bathroom! Public areas of the hotel are comfortable and elegant. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Lots to do in Aldeburgh including marvellous marsh walks, good shopping... More

I've been to the Brudenell many times for lunches, light bites & coffee. The hotel is in a wonderful location over looking the sea in Aldeburgh, which makes it a great place to relax with friends or family. You can eat in the restaurant or dine on the outside terrace, there is also a separate lounge where you can have... More
