Picturesque shabby chic atmosphere & decor. Excellent restaurant with small menu choice which however did not vary over our stay. Some household maintenance required. Windows blocked 10 cms. open maximum for children's safety. Not so good during this 2014 Indian summer.

A comfortable hotel on the front and near the centre of Aldeburgh, great location for exploring Suffolk and it's coast. Hotel is clean, tidy and well presented, our room was spacious with a good bathroom, we found the bed comfortable. Staff were friendly and professional. We did not have a problem parking but I could see this being a little... More

We found the Summer Steal away offer to be great value and stayed 2 nights. Our room was very comfortable and we had a welcome upgrade to a sea view . Dinner was excellent and we didn't exceed the nightly allowance so our only extra cost on the basic cost of the break was drinks with the evening meal and... More

Wonderful position in superb town. Hotel room facing sea was good and breakfast and evening meal faultless. Will certainly return. Parking good especially if you can park on sea front. Staff very pleasant and helpful

Arriving Thursday the 14th of August a tad early I was kept waiting by the lady on reception, no apology and I asked if the sea room I had booked was a good room as it was our anniversary. Expecting the lady to say " all our sea view rooms are of a good standard, she looked on the computer... More

My son and I stayed at the WL for 3 nights a couple of weeks ago and it was a really lovely experience. I had booked on the 'pay up front' deal and it didn't disappoint. We had a side room which was quite small but with a big bathroom and I was just so pleased that they had taken... More

We arrived for a two night stay (Monday-Wednesday). Although we were checked in swiftly, there was no real welcome, in fact barely a smile from the lady sitting at the desk. We eventually worked out how the lift worked and found our room (that was quite a challenge) and although the room was old fashioned and a little 'rough round... More

Nice clean room with comfy bed, good food in the restaurant and a decent breakfast and friendly professional staff to top it off its a very old hotel that has been refurbished to a decent standard so it has character but doesn't feel dated will definitely return here as soon as we can.

We did enjoy our stay , bar area was good and Breakfast very good, great staff, what did let our experience down was the room, and the Bath room paying £210 per night, the furnishings are dated and the quality of the bathroom and fitting really was shabby, evidence of continued leaks from the cheap looking shower divider, flaking paint...

A lovely place to chill out. The reason why I felt I had to write a review was because the food was so good. The chef must be brilliant. Thoroughly recommended. Right by Moot Hall and beach. Would I go there again? Of course.
