This was our third trip to the Brudenell, its location right on the beach is amazing, come rain or shine to be able to sit in your room and see the sea is awesome. We had a deluxe sea view room and they are worth every penny, with large bay windows and a sofa for you to sit and look... More

We just had a weekend at the Brudenell to celebrate my Husbands birthday. I had brought a birthday cake as surprise and asked them to put it in the room before we had the room key. We went for a walk and on our return went to our allotted room. They had not only put the cake on a table... More

We were given good reports on the hotel but came away disappointed - it was just OK. The room we had was clean and pleasant and the hotel overall was tidy. The staff were friendly but not welcoming. The restaurant was unimpressive - the menu was uninteresting and the service was poor. After being called from the bar for our... More

Wonderful setting right by the sea in attractive aldeburgh. Good place to sit in the lounge and stare out to sea - before exploring surprisingly vibrant aldeburgh with its good shops and restaurants and then go for a walk to the Martello tower. Dinner and breakfast food very good. Check in staff charming. Restaurant staff nearly all charming with the... More

I recently returned from a one-night stay at the Brudenell, and have been inspired to do my first tripadvisor review based on the experience! First, the (very) good part. My single room was very well appointed, and with a surprisingly large bathroom with full sized bath and lovely toiletries provided. Having expected a land-facing room, it was a great surprise...

I recently stayed in room 109 at this hotel. We had a lovely meal. We retired to bed and unfortunately heard lots of noise from the kitchen below. We could also see the kitchen from our window. There was normal kitchen noise and banter until after midnight and then again in the morning. On checking out we told the receptionist... More

We had a short break planned and decided to try the Brudenell. It not only met our expectations but exceeded them in every way. Very friendly and attentive staff, excellent food (we had a dinner B&B package) very clean and well appointed room, excellent nights sleep in a most comfortable bed with the sound of the sea to lull us...

The restaurant food, although expensive was well presented and very tatsy. All the staff we met were so helpful and friendly. It's a lovely hotel for a weekend at the beach or just a... More
