Phil and Juliet made us feel very welcome, and the view from our room was great. Parking was an issue, and we had to move the car at 8am or pay in the display carpark. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful, and the communal breakfast table was fine because the other guests were very chatty and friendly.
The shower is hoses attached to the bath taps which didnt work that well. If you turned the tap on too hard the hoses shot off the taps. I ended up sitting down on the floor of the bath to get enough water pressure to wash my hair. I didnt bother having a shower the next day because I couldnt be bothered with the hassle. The shower gel in the shower turned out to be moisturiser, but fortunately I had brought my own.
They could make it a bit smarter with small things like matching containers for tea/coffee (like they have at breakfast for the cereals) and nicer towels. And less clutter in the room. Also putting the tea and coffee at a good height. They also had Horlicks which I am not a fan of, but fortunately had brought my own hot chocolate with me.
Also somewhere to put your bag would be good. The room is not big, so you keep tripping over your bag (if it is on the floor like we did) There is a big dressing table, but we didnt unpack our things into this as we were only there for a short time.
The bed is not very comfortable, I could feel all of the springs.
I also thought it was expensive for the standard of things in the room. We have stayed in much nicer B&B's that were cheaper than this. They have been running this business for a long time, so it was surprising that they hadnt got the little things right to make a better impression.
We also came home with lots of bites all over us, we are not sure if it is from the bed or not. We have had to disinfect all of our belongings.
We had fish and chips at the Aldeburgh fish and chip shop, which I thought was very average, but my boyfriend liked it. We had a nice meal with excellent service at the White Lion, but was more expensive.
