The Brudenell is in a wonderful location - at the end of Aldenburgh, right on the seafront. The common areas of the hotel were lovely - there is a lounge to relax or have drinks or even snacks. A terrace overlooking the sea. However, the bedroom we had was disappointing. We had a rear facing room overlooking the alley at the back. Although it was clean and bed comfortable, the room was very small and very stuffy, in the heat of the Summer quite unbearable. We were provided with a small fan, which did help a little. But I am not sure that the room was good value at £190/night. Robes were £5 extra, upon request. Complimentary bottled water was provided in the room - but placed directly in the path of the sun streaming into the room. The wifi (complimentary) was intermittent at best throughout the hotel.
The service was excellent - in both reception and in the restaurant - we could not find fault. It was a shame that the room we had was such a disappointment - even the wonderful location could not justify the price.
