My husband and I have just returned from our first stay at the Wentworth Hotel in Aldeburgh. We go often to Aldeburgh and have been lucky enough to have stayed at all three main hotels over the years. So this review is very much based on a comparison of the hotels.
The room we had was very large, sea facing, clean and contemporary. Unfortunately the TV that should have been there was out of order and the replacement was inferior and not really in keeping with the room or standard of hotel. However saying that you don't go to such a nice place in order to watch the TV.
As we were only there one night we decided to book in for dinner. This is where the hotel fell down a little for us. We booked in for 7, but when we got there I felt that they didn't really have room for us. They sat us at a table that was meant for 4 which was not exactly intimate. The waitress was harrassed and busy and we felt that we were an imposition not a valued customer. We were not offered the wine list or a drink. We noticed that 'regular' customers were recieving more customer care, but regulars have to start somewhere. The food was lovely, well cooked and presented, three courses for £19.95 or there abouts. However we felt irritated by then which spoilt the ambience of the evening which was a shame as it was our wedding anniversary.
Now that I have had my rant, which is what people do, I feel a little better. Go to Aldeburgh it really is a special place, stay at The Wentworth Hotel as the room was lovely, as is their terrace, but eat somewhere else if you want something a little more intimate and laid back.
