We stayed in July during the hottest week of the year. This probably meant the hotel only had Very Good. The room was overlooking the sea and it was lovely to,wake up and drawer the curtains and sit up in bed and watch the sea. The bathroom had a shower and separate shower and the whole room was decorated in... More

Only the lack of air-conditioning (or even fans) in the rooms causes me to give this excellent hotel 4 stars instead of 5. We spent a hot weekend there unable to leave the windows open due to an invasion of marsh flies in Aldeburgh. Otherwise, excellent and above average for a UK seafront hotel. Rooms are lovely, service is efficient... More

Great place. The bar staff are very friendly and helpful. The bar manager William was very professional. The wines are excellent and Sunday lunch was superb. We go to Aldeburgh every year and always spend time at the Brudenell4

I've been to Aldeburgh 3 times now and have visited The Brudenell every time. Myself and my father always pop in for an early evening glass of wine. We have always been looked after and feel very welcome. The food was fantastic as it has been every time. I would like to say a special thank you to William who... More

Room was quite small and overlooked the road at the rear of the hotel, but the staff and position of the hotel more than made up for the disappointing room. Didn't eat in the hotel in the evening but breakfast was great. Enjoyed a nice Sauvignon blanch overlooking the sea, kept warm with some free blankets provided by the hotel... More

I had lunch with my 35 year old son on the terrasse at this hotel on Monday last. The sun was hot but we were quickly and courteously shown to a table in the shade, given menus and our drinks arrived promptly from the bar. After that the service just went downhill, We had decided to make this the 'special'... More

Had a comfortable overnight stay in late may. Weather was awful but the Brudenell softened the blow with a great evening meal in the restaurant and a quiet sunday night stay. Location is good, staff were polite and although the rooms were a tad tired in terms of interior, they were decent value.

I booked a table at the Brudenell for 12.45 today and arrived at 12.50 and shown to a table for the two of us.It was clear almost immediately that the restaurant was not only very busy they were well understaffed for the purpose. It took them around 20-25 minutes to take an order and I had to go to the... More

The location of the hotel couldn't be better at the end of the beach, and the staff are incredibly kind and helpful. But that's about where the positives end. The room hadn't been properly cleaned, the shower broke on the first night of our stay, and the restaurant is a disaster. For a much lower price point, this could have... More

Stayed here for two nights and only wish it was longer. There were four of us so we had two rooms. Rooms were very clean with all the facilities you need. Superb choice of food at breakfast. Ate in the hotel the first night and it was so good we decided to eat there again on the second night. What... More
