“Easter break at fabulous newly renovated hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2011

Stayed over easter at this newly renovated hotel. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful from the general manager to the chambermaids. The hotel was light and bright and the rooms very tastefully decorated. The food was excellent and being one of the first guests to stay since the renovation we were treated to a free champagne afternoon tea which was wonderful. Another nice and thoughtful touch was the easter egg we found on returning to our room on Saturday evening! We will definitely stay here again when returning to Aldeburgh in the future and would have no hesitatation in recommending it.

I stayed on the first night after the hotel had been closed for renovation. The hotel is in a lovely position and has been very tastefully designed and decorated to give a light, modern and relaxing feel without losing traditional values - a very friendly welcome and a super staff team - very professional, helpful and obviously happy in their jobs. Any queries we had were dealt with quickly and efficiently. We enjoyed a fantastic 3 course evening dinner and an excellent breakfast with a great view. The rooms are lovely - it is worth paying a bit extra for a sea view. It was my first visit to Aldeburgh - a very unspoilt seaside town - from the many fish shacks on the shingle beach to the small shops, cafes and restaurants in the main street - a great base for visiting this part of Suffolk!

My wife & myself attended the opening night of the refurbished White Lion hotel. I had experienced the old White Lion & it was getting a tired feel about it. But now "WOW" what a difference. The white Lion has a very trendy buzz about it.
The restaurant is has moved to the upper level which is now joined to the long bar. This gives the place a great feeling of space. The staff are friendly & helpful from the booking in to taking your food/drink orders.
The rooms have been turned into modern personal space, that are a pleasure to stay in. I think that the White Lion might turn into a regular event for us from now on.
