Everything is very nearby in Aldeburgh but the Brudenell I think has the nicest location. It's right opposite the beach and there is a lovely terrace to sit outside which will be lovely in summer. We went on a blustery, rainy weekend but there was still a super view from the bar and lounge.
We had a sea view room which is worth paying the extra for. Price included a substantial breakfast which is served in the bar area overlooking the beach. Room very nicely decorated, large bathroom although the shower had little water pressure which was a bit disappointing.
We didn't have dinner at the hotel, but the breakfast was delicious and a good choice of continental as well as cooked choices, and not just the usual 'full English', there were some nice fish options too.
Would stay there again on another trip. The town is lovely, has a nice high street with some real shops (not just places pandering to tourists) and a good choice of restaurants. Be aware that the prices are quite high as there are a number of people who work in London and have a second home in the area.
We also did a quick trip down the coast to Orford which looks worth another visit with a lovely castle.
