We stayed for 3 nights in the Lilac Room at the rear of the property. Our room, like the rest of the house, was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated and presented. On the landing was a huge bookcase with literally many hundreds of books, fiction and non fiction. There were also DVDs to watch in your room.
Breakfast - where shall I start? There is a toaster for guests in the breakfast room so you can have your toast exactly when you want it. The white and brown bread is made by Peter and tastes delicious. Cereals - there were 5 types of Dorset Cereals, cornflakes, frosties and weetabix. Nice quality orange juice and a wonderful fresh fruit salad that changed a little each day were our choice to start. The cooked breakfast comprises excellent quality bacon, sausages and eggs plus 6 or so of the usual suspects. It is cooked to order so you have about 20 minutes to attack the "starters". There are 4 boards on the wall advertising special breakfasts, we did not try them but other reviewers have commented how nice they were. Assuming you have room for toast after your cooked breakfast, you have a choice of 5 jams, marmalade, honey, marmite, peanut butter, nutella and one other I cannot remember. A coffee maker is there for you to help yourself and tea is brought to your table.
Now the hosts, Sue and Peter. Very friendly and helpful with loads of information about Aldeburgh and further afield, plus where to eat and drink. WE highly recommend the Lighthouse restaurant and the restaurant in the White Lion.
Parking is on street, but we had no problems at all.
Summarising, this is a top of the range B&B. I haven't the faintest idea what they could do to make it better. Well done Pete and Sue, and thank you.
