Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel's Favourite
The Pier deserves five stars. Just spent a night in a room which was perfect in every way- comfortable, good lighting, super bathroom, armchairs, tea-making facilities, air conditioning and sea view. Dinner in restaurant and breakfast were both excellent and staff in every department professional, helpful and smart. Thank you everyone for a memorable stay.

Being local my wife and I visit the Pier Hotel regularly. This year I have had a number of roast beef dinners and frankly they get better and better. Without doubt one of the best roast dinners I have ever had. Many thanks to Ian, Margaret and all the staff there. Highly recommended

The Pier Hotel was great for 80th birthday party. Everyone worked really work hard to make the event special and really enjoyable. We had a fantastic time. They provided a fantastic buffet which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone present. The wine bar was great and allowed us make it a private event. Some of the guests stayed over at the pier and were able to enjoy the party more as they had only to go up to their room at the end of the night. I had nothing but praise from those who stayed.

We can’t fault this hotel. We’ve stayed numerous times and always found it really welcoming. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The food is excellent and good value. I love the viewing bay window . You could just sit there all day watching life go by ! The rooms are comfortable and everyone we’ve stayed in has always had a good view of either the river or beach. Looking forward to our next visit !

Yet another faultless weekend at the Pier Hotel, we go twice yearly for a "truckers reunion" with partners, bit of a get away and chin wag, the service as always was outstanding, attentive and friendly, big shout out to April for putting up with 70+ truckers on Saturday night lol. Food was cooked well, tasty and fresh, our room (family room) was huge, big bath with shower, ample wardrobe and bedroom space and air conditioning, tea making facilities and big tv, views of the sandy beach and harbour mouth were stunning as the sunrise appeared, all in all another excellent stay, looking forward to September.

I cannot recommend this beach side hotel enough. It has everything in my opinion. The staff are lovely, always welcoming and helpful. The food is super in both the beautiful art deco style restaurant or from the bar. The bedrooms are gorgeous with sea /beach or river views and everything you need is provided. They are kept spotless by the lovely housekeeping team. We had stayed once before just for one night but this stay was for 6 nights, we didn't want to leave!

Another fantastic stay at The Pier Hotel. Brilliant location for Gorleston Beach. The hotel is decorated in an Art Deco style. It is clean and stylish. The restaurant has views overlooking the beach. Food is excellent and decent portion sizes.Staff are all really friendly and that’s what makes me return, rather than go to the nearest rival hotel, where I haven’t found the staff as warm or ready to engage. This time I was travelling alone for business and in the dining room, as the staff were very chatty. I didn’t feel uncomfortable dining alone at all. Rooms on 2nd floor have less obstructed views than the first. Room 204 has a balcony which is lovely, although the room is smaller than other premier rooms I have stayed in there. Note- lift only goes to 2nd floor. There are steps to 3rd floor. A lovely hotel.

Easy and quick check-in. We got a free upgrade which was a nice surprise. The room was really clean and overlooked the sea so we had a really great view. Lovey white towels in the spacious bathroom which was equipped with shampoo/bodywash and hand soap. Plenty of choice of tea/coffee/hot chocolate and a couple packets of biscuits. Ample wardrobe space too. There was a free standing radiator which we plugged in when we got up in the morning as it was a bit chilly, but it soon warmed the room for us. We had a bar meal in the afternoon and the food was well cooked and presented. In the morning we had breakfast which was also to a high standard, All the staff we encountered were friendly and happy to help with anything. This was just a one night visit but if we go back to Gorleston then we will definitely stay here again.

We visited the restaurant for an impromptu lunch. What a delight, staff really welcoming, eager to help. Varied menu, the food arrived quickly although the restaurant was busy. Lovely hot fresh food. My granddaughter had the children's meal, chicken nuggets (not my favourite). I was pleasantly surprised, they were made from whole chicken not processed mush. I must be recommend the chips, superb.
