Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Aldeburgh is such a delightful place, made perfect by having the Wentworth.’ Praise from a trusted reader for Michael Pritt’s Victorian hotel across the road from the shingle beach. ‘We return every year, always to the same welcome, and many of the staff have been there for years.’ The late Joyce Grenfell, a summer visitor, would no doubt have said the same. The ethos is self-professedly ‘old-fashioned’. Mr Pritt (whose grandfather took over the then Wentworth Castle in 1920) ‘makes sure standards never drop, and people feel at ease’. Manager Chris Holden is also of long standing. Interiors are a smart blend of the traditional and the contemporary. There are sea views from the lounges, the front terrace, and many of the individually designed bedrooms, while rooms in Darfield House, behind, have use of a courtyard garden. Four rooms were recently refurbished. Light lunches (Suffolk sausages, Wentworth fishcakes) are served in the bar, while in the restaurant, at dinner, Tim Keeble’s ‘consistently good’ cooking includes such dishes as herb-crusted hake fillet; braised lamb shank, tomato ragout, rosemary polenta.

Guest comments

'It always delights. Many of the staff have been there for years, and greet us like friends. The food is good but not outstanding, breakfasts especially so. A lot of older people come - so what? I am old myself. It's in such a lovely area. ' - Simon Rodway - Jun, 2018
'We return every year. Same welcome; many staff have been here for years. Michael Pritt makes sure that standards do not drop. Lovely large lounge, comfy bedrooms overlooking the sea . The food remains consistently good without being outstanding. ' - Simon Rodway - May, 2017
'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 - Aug, 2016
