We have just returned from a lovely break here. The hotel is very well placed for both the pebble beach & the shops. We had no problem parking on any of our 3 days after we had been out sightseeing. There are beautiful gardens & outside seating areas too.
We had a sea facing room (2) which was on the 1st floor & had a lovely big sash window at the front & a smaller window at the side which made the bedroom very light. There was a blind & lovely heavy curtains. The bathroom was well appointed with a powerful shower over the bath, & lovely toiletries.
Floorboards were creaky, but that was to be expected in a property of this age.
Plenty of lounge areas with lots of interesting magazines to read. Beautiful antique furniture was mixed together with other well selected pieces making a fabulous look. Lovely colour schemes as well!
The food was very good, with plenty of choice (although some items were on the menu for the whole 3 days so presume they were popular?) and excellent quality. Fabulous breakfasts as well & the staff were very attentive without bothering you. Good idea for the sweet course to leave your menu turned down until you were ready to order...nice touch!
As a previous reviewer said the clientele is mainly 70+ but unless you are after discos & noisy entertainment don't let that put you off.
It is ideal for a relaxing break, in lovely surroundings, with good food & excellent staff.
There are some excellent small shops in Aldeburgh, which is a short stroll away either along the Crag Path so you can see the sea & fish huts, or on the parallel road away from the front.
We bought some dressed crab to take home from one of the huts & it was delicious.
We would certainly return if we visited Suffolk again.
