Reviewed 9 July 2014

Hotel in superb location just across the road from Aldeburgh's shingle beach and local fishermen's shacks. Staff friendly and efficient, attractively furnished and comfortable public areas, spotless table linen and faultless food. Our sea facing bedroom was very comfortable and well equipped, right down to a pair of binoculars to view the passing shipping and wildlife! We were able to park the car in the hotel car park on arrival, and forgot it for the next two days as we explored the area on foot. Well worth a repeat visit to this lovely unspoiled area of Suffolk.

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you were able to use the hotel as a base to explore the local area. Our private car park is certainly a bonus and moreover the seaview can be enjoyed with the binoculars from a large amount of our seafacing bedrooms.

The linen we also feel gives us a point of difference and it is pleasing to read your comments about the staff and food

I hope we can welcome you back to the hotel next time you are in the area

Thank you again

We visited Aldeburgh for the first time and we were not disappointed we liked the place so much we thought we would stay for the night, the festival was on so we had real trouble getting anywhere to stay so on the verge of giving up we called in to the Wentworth hotel for a drink before heading home, we asked at reception did they have any rooms and much to our surprise they did !! ( we had rung the hotel earlier ) The room we given was on the small side but, we had a lovely sea view and a balcony which was a nice surprise and it was a real sun trap. We booked a table for dinner which was included in the price and all the food was enjoyable and no faults could be found, the dining room had a lovely pleasant atmosphere and the staff were very attentive. We had a really nice evening after dinner sitting in the lounge reading and talking to other guests. The breakfast next morning was ok but a little over cooked just a very minor moan. We intend to go back soon ( especially if we could have the same room !!! ) and visit the hotel, I must say that the gentleman who booked us in ( and gave us a glass of wine each for dinner ) also helped make the stay a bit special, overall a very enjoyable stay and we would certainly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

I am so pleased we had a room left to welcome you to the hotel for an overnight stay. Room 10 is a standard sized bedroom but the balcony is a big bonus.

It is good to read that you enjoyed your dinner and I apologise for the breakfast being slightly overcooked.

That said I do hope you choose the Wentworth when you visit the area again

Thank you again for taking the time to write a review

To stay at the Wentworth Hotel in Aldeburgh is to take a trip back in time to an era when life was leisurely and not measured in emails. The hotel is a road's width from the stony beach which is dotted with tarred fisherman's huts which provide daily supplies to the hotel's varied menu. If you are up before 5am you see vessels chugging out to sea for the day's catch. The hotel boasts 2 rosettes(why only 2?) and the menu daily reflects the hotel's seaside location. Dinner bookings are elastic to cope with poor time keepers. Meat eaters are well catered for - ribeye steaks are a speciality. Service is professional and courteous leavened with Suffolk humour. The public rooms are numerous and spacious providing a sense of freedom. Altogether, an experience to be repeated.

Room Tip: First floor with seaview.

We made our first ever visit to the Wentworth back in May, for a 4-night stay.
The rooms were lovely, as were the staff, the food and the public areas.
Couldn't fault it!
Aldeburgh itself is a perfect base from which to explore the local area.

We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend for a relaxing break. Lovely location. We had a second floor suite with sea view which was very quiet with great views. Room was very nicely appointed and spacious. Restaurant very nice with good view and good value. Breakfast very good.
Welcome was very nice and friendly and service generally was excellent.
The only gripe was we felt the B and B costs are too high. We did not benefit from a special rate which made it very expensive compared to other hotels we have stayed in of similar standard.

Room Tip: Sea View is a must - not worth the extra for a suite unless you are going to spend a lot of time in...

Thank you for leaving a review and I hope you enjoyed the lovely sea views from your bedroom

I'm sorry you found the bed and breakfast rate to be high. It is well worth taking advantage of our dinner, bed and breakfast rate which is only £15.00 more per person and allows you each to take a three course meal in the restaurant each evening. Also please do add yourself to our mailing list on our website for news of special deals and breaks

Thank you again for your comments and we hope to see you soon

We love visiting the Wentworth. It has an old fashioned 'cosy' feel about it that suits Aldeburgh so well. The staff are always cheerful and efficient. The food is good, the rooms clean and well furnished with excellent bathrooms and the lounges are varied in character but all very pleasant and comfortable. We'll be going again soon!
