Once an old coaching inn, the hotel retains its traditional, almost ‘pub’ , style of decor and atmosphere. The rooms are average, somewhat faded, but have all facilities (wifi does not seem to work in the block at the rear of the hotel). Public areas again have that ‘pub’ type of feel to them and are nowhere near as attractive as the Brudenell.
The hotel is on the seafront, virtually opposite one of Aldeburghs main sights, the Moot Hall, and the yacht pond, and ideally located for long walks by the sea. The hotel has a good restaurant, and overall is perfectly ‘OK’. It just is nowhere as nice as the Brudenell , either in rooms, or in public areas, and unfortunately is close to the same price.
