Rosemary Cottage
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Aldeburgh
Reviewed September 23, 2010

One of the oldest buildings in Aldeburgh and ideally located at the quiet end of the High Street. Originally part of the cottage next door Rosemary Cottage is very small with one bedroom, living area, shower and kitchen. This cottage, although quaint, was rather uncomfortable. The shower room was tiny, the sink was blocked and, because there was no shower tray, the floor was always wet. There was virtually nowhere to store clothing apart from a few hangers in an alcove. Many windows did not have blinds or curtains so privacy was difficult when getting dressed. There was a supply of films on DVD but the built-in DVD player on the small TV did not work. The front door had swollen in it's frame which made it difficult to enter or exit the cottage. The Rayburn was a nice touch but impractical if you were out a lot and needed a method of preparing food quickly.

We stayed at Rosemary Cottage at the recommendation of friends and are happy to pass that on. The cottage is billed as b&b though feels much more like a rental. It is old, has character and is completely self contained with its own kitchen, the ingredients for breakfast (all very high quality) are left for you to cook yourself.

Location is superb being at the end of the main street and two roads, say two-three minutes from the beach. Its also pretty much opposite a renowned fish and chip shop, the queues for this speaks for itself though I found them somewhat underwhelming.

Its certainly not the cheapest b&b but does have the feel of a 'premium' product. I also imagine Aldeburgh is a relatively expensive place to stay, there were lots of middle class holidaymakers around with wine bars and wine merchants (sometimes only selling wine by the case) appearing to outnumber the pubs.

Close to Snape Maltings and Orford - if you do nothing else spend half a day or so at Orford.
