Good Hotel Guide Review

Across a quiet road from the shingle beach, this ‘delightful, warmly welcoming’ Victorian hotel has been in Michael Pritt’s family since 1920. It has built up a loyal following that appreciates its comfort, traditional values and ‘accommodating staff’. ‘A bonus: the welcome Pimm’s and, later, cream tea on the terrace.’ ‘It has become a real friend,’ says a Guide reader this year, a returnee who visits ‘once or twice (sometimes thrice!) a year’. ‘The owner always shows concern for the guests.’ The hotel is popular with older visitors in the off-season and families in the summer months; all year long, dogs are made ‘very welcome’ (‘our mutt loved the beach in February and many nice walks’). Many of the ‘elegant, well-appointed’ bedrooms in the main house have a sea view; four have their own lounge. Rooms in Darfield House, behind, have access to a courtyard garden. ‘We liked the electronic controls in the shower that let us choose the precise temperature and pressure.’ In the sea-facing restaurant, chef Tim Keeble’s ‘beautifully presented’ dishes use much local produce, ‘some from the fishing boats right outside’. ‘We felt well cared for.’ (Ashley Walton, Simon Rodway, and others)

Guest comments

'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 - August, 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
