We spent a super 2 day break at this lovely hotel.
The room was excellent, restfully decorated in sea and beach colours and comfortably furnished with a good bed and settee. It provided super sea views. The hotel was very clean and well appointed.
The restaurant was delightful with good views from every table. All the staff have good customer care skills and enjoy providing a professional service to meet the guests individual needs.
The cocktail bar had a good repertoire of interesting drinks.

The breakfasts were first class and freshly cooked to order. The dinners were good in all aspects; good varied range of dishes, good portions and well presented.

Thank you for an excellent break. We look forward to returning in the future.

Our 3-night autumn break this week at the Brudenell Hotel was a sheer delight. The old style building exterior has a stylish modern interior and our de-luxe rooms overlooking the North Sea were large and well equipped in every way including comfortable sette, separate double width separate shower and a large bath. The daily replenishment of a large bottle of still and sparkling water was much appreciated as well as complimentary newspapers. By the time we returned from breakfast the room had been serviced but I guess this level of service could not be expected.

All the staff were really friendly, intelligent and relaxed and certainly not from the "have a nice day" mould.

The 2 AA Rosette restaurant provided excellent food with a balanced selection of choices in all courses. Breakfast was equally enjoyable so full marks to James-Head Chef and his team. One minor suggestion - Could the cooked breakfast menu include both porridge and a main breakfast dish?

We enjoyed half a dozen different wines which were all value for money including some from the new wine list and bin ends.

It would be good to experience this hotel in different seasons and maybe we shall have the opportunity in the future as Aldeburgh is a lovely town with interesting shops and outlets.

Thanks for a most enjoyable visit to everyone at the Brudenell

Room Tip: Clearly a sea view if you can afford it and a de luxe room if you want to enjoy a pampered stay

Thank you for your lovely comprehensive review of your experiences with us it is great to hear that you had a good time. I have addressed that the porridge appears on the from the kitchen selection as I agree this does seem silly and it seems that it has been moved since we re imaged the restaurant menus.

I really loved this hotel, with amazing sea views from almost every vista.

We splashed out on a suite that was great to sip bubbles and watch the world go by in the bay window. It was a little pricey for what it was but it was well appointed, sofa, white gowns, tea and coffee etc. Modern and clean.

The position of the Hotel is tucked a way on a quiet spot on the beach. The reception staff were great and gave a good service. Food at the restaurant was of a good quality (but not outstanding) but great for seafood lovers like me. The service could be a little better for this level of restaurant though (If I was being picky).

Would also suggest the afternoon teas in the lounge overlooking the sea if you are up this end of the Aldeburgh beach and want to relax out of the wind :)

I would go again.

The Brudenell is such a beautiful hotel, in location and luxury. We have stayed twice when meeting up with family from London. Whatever the weather you are guaranteed an amazing stay. Luxurious comfy bedrooms and delicious locally sourced food will ensure value for money. Suffolk is such a beautiful county and this area is my favourite . A stay at The Brudenell is such a treat!

I stayed for 4 nights in room 104. Large bay window overlooking the sea and a huge, very comfortable bed. My mobility is limited so I was happy to spend a lot of time watching the sea, which was very calm when I arrived but had completely changed to crashing waves by the time I left. Lovely to watch it during all it's moods. My room was large and very well appointed with tea and coffee making facilities which were always kept well stocked. Hotel staff are all very friendly and welcoming, attentive but not intrusive. The standard of cleanliness is excellent and the food is of a really high standard. I'm really looking forward to returning next year and have already booked same room same week!

Room Tip: The sea views are wonderful and well worth the extra price, as long as you enjoy the sound of the waves.
