The Hotel Folk Limited is a group of six distinctive and privately-owned hotels, situated on the coast and in the countryside of the beautiful county of Suffolk. Our portfolio comprises of:
The White Lion Hotel
Situated opposite Aldeburgh’s shingle beach, The White Lion Hotel combines traditional values with contemporary comfort and style. With its log fires, glorious sea views, fabulous food and warm Suffolk welcome, The White Lion Hotel provides the perfect base from which to discover Aldeburgh and the surrounding area.
The Brudenell Hotel
Our 44 bedrooms are all decorated to a very high standard in calming colours, where you can watch the sun rise from our beautiful sea view rooms or watch it set across the marshes of the River Alde.
Dine alfresco in the warmer months on the sea-facing terrace, unique to Aldeburgh, or in the relaxed and informal two rosette restaurant with panoramic views out to sea.
Simply sit back and relax in the comfy sofas of the newly refurbished sea-facing lounge.
The Crown at Woodbridge
The Crown at Woodbridge offers all that is great about escaping to the country, with all that is good about staying in a wonderful market town. With old fashioned inn keeping in a modern setting, the former 16th Century coaching house boasts ten magnificent boutique bedrooms, a bustling bar and a real Suffolk food experience.
Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, head chef Luke Bailey showcases all that is great about the county’s local produce, reflected in a food offering which includes a mix of rustic and refined dishes, with simple, high-quality ingredients coming alive on the plate. Their bustling cocktail bar serves everything from local beers and ciders to the latest trend cocktails, all alongside an extensive and well-balanced wine list.
Thorpeness Golf Club & Hotel
Situated in a peaceful location next to the Meare, our Thorpeness Hotel has one of the most picturesque and enjoyable golf courses in Suffolk. Set amongst the Suffolk coastal heathland, the golf course offers a tough challenge for all levels of player. Designed by James Braid in 1922, this mature Suffolk golf course winds through silver birch, pine trees, gorse and heather.
Crown and Castle
Situated in the tranquil village of Orford on the Suffolk Coast (just south of Aldeburgh), the Crown & Castle is perfect for leisure guests wanting to relax and recharge.
With wonderful walking by the river and through nearby forests, we are a stone’s throw from the magnificent C12th castle.
The extraordinary Orford Ness (NT) is just across the river Ore. Awarded Editor’s Choice by the 2018 Good Hotel Guide and chosen by the Sunday Times as one of the Best 100 hotels for 2019, authentic British and Italian food is at our heart and we were recently honoured by Sawday’s Guide for Fabulous Food.
