The Wentworth

The 'personal attention of the owner and staff' is liked by 'addicts' who return regularly to Michael Pritt's traditional hotel on a quiet road opposite a shingle beach. 'Everything is comfortable, attractive and fresh thanks to a continuous programme of renewal,' say visitors; this year the main lounges have been renovated. Another comment: 'Always reliable, long-serving staff, nothing changes.' A sea-facing bedroom on the first floor was 'bright, airy and very clean; a tiny bathroom'. A single room was 'quiet, well appointed; no unnecessary fussiness'. Seven bedrooms in Darfield House have light oak furniture, neutral colours; a modern bathroom. Saurav Kumar joined as head chef in 2013. 'Breakfast is excellent; delicious muesli, good cooked (fine black pudding), superb bread and croissants,' say visitors who were admonished for sitting at the wrong table and 'marched to another one'. The Wentworth is 'well attuned' to concerts at nearby Snape Maltings, with the 'civilised and practical' option of taking a pre-concert starter and main course, returning for a post-concert pudding. (Richard Parish, John and Margaret Speake, Simon Rodway)
  • Our room at Darfield Housewas not as large as previous rooms we had stayed in at the Wentworth but it was comfortable and bathroom very good. The hotel is well situated and staff are very pleasant. The food was good, well cooked and presented.

  • Check-in smooth if impersonal. Bedroom decor a bit tired, but good lighting, plenty of coat hangers, free wi-fi, good-sized TV. Public areas well maintained. Food good but not outstanding. Good-value wine. Clean throughout, with cosy yet formal feel. Excellent staff, attentive and polite.

  • Comfortable public rooms, well-appointed single bedrooms, quiet and bright. Breakfast very good; good service. Dinner good but we thought the wine mark-up high. They are well attuned to the concerts.
