We arrived late in the evening; the receptionist clocking off and the night porter taking over were fantastic! They were very kind and very considerate to two weary travellers. They could not have been more welcoming or have done more for us. The room was great, good shower, very comfortable bed, nice view, wifi was excellent. Breakfast was included and... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant couple of nights at this friendly hotel on the Suffolk coast. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the sea view room was absolutely excellent. We were fortunate with the weather and visited Snape Maltings, Southwold and other spots. Breakfasts were very good as was dinner, with the exception of the Fillet steak which was... More

Spent three days here in August. We had a lovely room overlooking the sea and dined here two evenings. The food was very good and the staff were friendly but there seemed to be a lack of proper management. My original reservation for the room was filed under another name. My booking for dinner was not transferred from reception to... More

We attended the hotel for 2 nights to celebrate my daughters wedding. The town is really lovely and the hotel is in a great location although car parking is at a premium. The hotel is in good condition and looks like it was refurbished fairly recently. We booked a standard double room on the first floor and here there are... More

I stayed with my partner last weekend for 3 night for the carnival, the hotel is a 4 star for a reason, the positives are the staff who were incredibly helpful and very friendly, they really couldn't do enough for us. We had lunch on the terrace when we arrived as our room wasn't quite ready the waiter was really... More

We stayed in The Brudenell about 10 years ago and it was looking a little tired and neglected. Coming back, it was great to see the place had completely been revamped and was excellent. Plus there were plans to improve it further, so they don't let the quality slip. The main purpose of the trip was the Aldebugh carnival, which... More

My favourite chill out place is Aldeburgh. There's nothing like a bracing walk along the beach to clear your head followed by a spot of lunch at The Brudenall Hotel. The hotel has a lovely terrace restaurant overlooking the sea and on a sunny afternoon, it's great for people watching. The food is beautifully prepared the serving staff though young,... More

My husband and I were recommended the restaurant stop we arrived with our small dog and we were immediately met by friendly and helpful staff who were only too happy to accommodate us and our dog. We sat on the terrace overlooking the beach and had an amazing three course lunch - the food and service were outstanding! Cannot recommend... More

Following a most enjoyable short stay here last year we returned for more of the same - but a longer one (5 nights) - and were not disappointed. We were warmly welcomed back and were glad of the help offered with our bags. Our DeLuxe Sea-View Room on the First Floor (lift available) was all we could have hoped for... More
