Good Hotel Guide Review

Comfortingly timeless and traditional, this ‘individual’ family-run hotel in a Victorian building stands across the road from the shingle beach. It appeals to guests who enjoy its ‘relaxed country-house feel’ and the ‘helpful, friendly, long-serving staff’. Michael Pritt, the owner, has been welcoming visitors, many of whom become regulars, for more than 40 years. ‘What’s their secret? The ability to make people feel rested and at ease, with no demands or rules,’ says an admirer this year. Take things slowly, in ‘large, comfy’ public rooms; in fine weather, order tea on the terrace (don’t miss the cake of the day). In the main hotel and Darfield House, across the road, ‘the bedrooms vary, and suit one’s needs exactly’. Many have sea views over Aldeburgh beach; pick a large room with a seating area. The tables are set with white linens and silverware at the candlelit dinner (open to, and sometimes ‘extremely busy’ with, non-residents), where the daily-changing menu of straightforward dishes has an ‘excellent choice’ of ‘delicious’ fish. ‘Our vegetarian friend was very happy with the variety of food he could have.’ (Simon Rodway, John and Margaret Speake, and others)

Guest comments

'A warm welcome at this delightful family-run hotel right on the beach in the lovely town of Aldeburgh. Just 35 elegant bedrooms, coffee tea facilities, flat TVs brand new power showers. Local produce, some from fishing boats right outside, beautifully presented. the complimentary welcoming Pimm's was a bonus so was the cream tea for two on the terrace. We felt well cared for. ' - Ashley Walton - August, 2016
'We visit once or twice a year. The staff remember us and are always very friendly, and always welcome our dogs. Our room facing the sea is comfortable, well furnished, with plenty of storage space. The food is always good though service is sometimes slow when there are large parties. Michael Pratt is full of local knowledge ' - Simon Rodway - May, 2016
'We regularly stay at the Wentworth, and also had our wedding anniversary family dinner there two years ago. As always the rooms are comfortable, the food excellent and the staff efficient and friendly. It maintains its relaxed country hotel feel. ' - John & Margaret Speake - October, 2015
