My wife and I spent two nights at the Wentworth Hotel recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We decided to stay in Aldeburgh as we had tickets for the final concert in this year's Aldeburgh Festival at the Snape Maltings, just a few miles away, and we wanted to see a little of the town that is so closely associated with the great composer and founder of the festival, Benjamin Britten. The Wentworth, a hotel owned and run by the same family since 1920, was an obvious choice, and it turned out to be a good one! Our room, which overlooked Aldeburgh's shingle beach, was quiet and comfortable and the bathroom was spotlessly clean. We dined both nights in the hotel and the quality of the food and the service was excellent. There is no lift in the hotel, but there are five rooms on the ground floor. I discovered that too late so it was a laborious climb up to our room on the second floor. There are binoculars for use by guests in some of the sea view rooms. Not in ours, or if there was I didn't find them. No matter, I could gaze at the grey dawn breaking over sea and shingle, hearing Britten's haunting Sea Interlude from Peter Grimes in my head. But didn't as I was fast asleep in a very comfortable bed. We struggled down eventually for the full Suffolk breakfast. The Wentworth is a great hotel. We'll be back.
