The rooms are modern and the staff extremely accommodating, nothing is too much trouble, children are welcome, The rooms are... More

I've visited Aldeburgh several times and the location of the hotel is indeed fabulous. If it were any closer to the sea, it would be in it! Quite an old building, the interior is quite modern, although like other comments the hotel would benefit from air conditioning - surely a pre-requisite for this type of establishment. I had a room... More

A fabulous hotel with helpful and courteous staff. The whole experience was just fabulous and it was lovely to see the care they showed to even their most elderly guests. The quality of the food was second to none and the plaice I had in the restaurant was divine. Eating with a full moon reflecting on the sea what more... More

Nice hotel, probably the best in Aldeburgh, however the bedroom was so hot, we hardly slept (weather was very hot at the time of the stay - hotel did provide a fan in the room, but air conditioning would have been far better). The Hungarian bar man deserves a special mention as he was fantastic - he served us some... More

This hotel has a wonderful location, right on the seafront with only a narrow barely used road between the spacious veranda and the beach. Perfect for bar snacks or drinks, hot or cold facing the warm autumn sun. A great spot. Our room on the third floor front was very spacious, modern and with a wonderful large en suite. Large...

Very warm welcome on arrival, clean very pleasant room, and a fantastic location right on the sea front. I wasn't very impressed with the food however and the restaurant lacks ambience. I probably wouldn't eat there again when there are so many lovely places in the rest of Aldeburgh. However, it is a nice hotel and we had a lovely... More
