We took a short Spring Brreak on the Suffolk coast for a 'get a way from it all' few days. Great hotel, room with a sea view. All the staff were both friendly and competent. The room was of a good standard and furnished well, my only negative would be it was a little small. Very clean hotel. Will be...

We stayed at the Brudenell for our birthday celebration the second time in two years and will definitely be back. It's so beautiful throughout and the staff are an absolute credit to the hotel. They are welcoming, friendly and really know how to look after the guests. Special mention to the chap who works behind the bar some nights (when...

My husband and I wanted a one night break in Aldeburgh after a wonderful stay with friends in Southwold. The Brudenell was the perfect choice, sea view suite gave us the opportunity to relax in between lovely walks along the seafront and through the high street. Staff very friendly and helpful.

The Brudenell offered a relaxing family stay to our party which consisted of adults, teenagers, grandparents and a dog. The hotel is literally on the promenade of the beach. The staff were brilliant - proactive, friendly, great service and nothing was ever too much trouble. Rooms were clean and well decorated. Beautiful views. Great breakfast and really good quality dining...

Stayed here with my daughter last week - Everything was just lovely: our room, our sea view, our comfy beds, roll top bath, great breakfast & evening meal. Lots of attention to detail, like the reading lights, fizzy & plain bottled water, slippers etc. It was a bit more expensive than other rooms & some hotels, but worth it. Can't...

We were unlucky with the weather and can imagine that on a warm summer's day, sat on the terrace with a cold beer looking at waves and shingle it's very nice. But not quite as nice as Barcelona or Cannes and more expensive.

I visited with my mum and 2 daughters sharing two rooms. We had deluxe sea view rooms which were lovely and spacious, good shower, tea, coffee, cookies and water all complimentary. The view is great, you are almost on top of the beach. We ate here in the evening and what a delicious meal!! My mum and I had the...

I have been staying at the Wentworth Hotel 'down the road' for decades, except when it's been fully booked, when we've stayed at the Brudenell. I would say that the Wentworth is a little more 'period', but this week, the Brudenell has tempted me to go there in future. It is under new ownership, and there is a lot going...
