As a child staying on a farm in nearby Leiston I had often gazed up at the terrace of this beachfront hotel wondering if I would ever get to stay there. Sixty years later I can afford to do so! I love the blonde wood, mixtures of blues and greens in carpets and upholstery and stylish but casual chic of... More

We stayed in room 208 for a Friday and Saturday night. The room was well appointed, comfortable and had a nice sea view. However the room did not have air conditioning which was a disappointment (would not wish to occupy it during warmer weather). Parking was an issue and it was sometimes difficult to find a spot. Shortly after we... More

For my 18th birthday my boyfriend took me away to Aldeburgh and we stayed at the Brudnell, this was my first proper trip to a hotel and I was amazed by the welcoming atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff and the beautiful views. We had a lovely stay, the food was top notch, cocktails were also tasty! Room was tidy, super clean... More

Very nice hotel all staff really good & friendly, I was struggling with a heavy bag & gentleman who I later learnt was a maintenance man helped me. Room & food good. But tv reception let's them down badly no excuse in these modern times with technology available, considering the cost of rooms.

The staff without exception were friendly, attentive and accommodating The restaurant and menu is extremely well and attractively promoted and I was looking forward to dinner. Sadly I was disappointed with the meal falling... More

Had a great weekend at the Brudenell Hotel. The service was excellent and the room looking over the sea quite exceptional. The restaurant service was first class and food first rate. Not the cheapest place but worth every penny. Perfect to mooch round Aldeburgh or pop up the Road to Southwold. The sun shining was a bonus!

Two years ago we dined at The Brudenell, once outside where our ordered meal arrived before our drinks resulting in visiting the bar requesting I serve myself! We had already been told twice "just coming" In addition I remember the meal being dreadful. Later on in the summer we decided to give the hotel another chance - sadly - so... More

We only stayed 1 night but what an excellent stay we had. The room (303) was good, both dinner & breakfast were excellent & the staff were so friendly we could not fault anything. The only sad part was that we didn't stay longer!!

We stayed at the Brudenell on Friday for one night, the hotel is in a great location next to the sea and 2 mins from the town, but parking situation is not great with approx. 10 spaces in car park and then some more in very tight spaces in their open garages, otherwise is road parking. We stayed on the... More

We much enjoyed our stay. The hotel still has the style of an old-fashioned English seaside hotel, but all the comfort and convenience the modern traveller expects. The sea views are magnificent. Service was excellent: efficient and friendly. If I could have asked for one thing more, it would have been natural (rather than synthetic) pillows, but that's a personal... More
