“Delightful”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We had a lovely (but short) break in Aldeburgh recently and stayed in the White Lion Hotel which is right on the seafront. The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming and our lovely comfortable room overlooked the sea. The breakfast was excellent with a lot of choice and as much as you could possibly want of everything. Altogether a very enjoyable experience and we would definitely stay there again and recommend to family and friends.
Monica T. Tendring Green

Room Tip: Room 5 overlooks the seafront and was also very quiet and peaceful

Had a weekend at the White Lion and would recommend the hotel for visiting Aldeburgh and the Suffolk coast. The Staff were very good, Reception very helpful and freindly, and its a long time since I have been wished a good morning by every one who served my breakfast! Restaurant food good and reasonably priced. One slight warning, I was phoned by the hotel 4 times after making the booking warning there was a wedding on that Saturday night, I enquired if that would really impact on us and they suggested not. I take ear plugs whenever I travel and was pretty glad I did, if you book and they warn you there is a wedding on my strong advice is to either stay out till after midnight or take ear plugs!

Thank you for your feedback. We are very cautious when weddings are in house in regards to possible disruption. As all music stops at 11pm this does not always cause an issue for our guests, However this particular wedding was a larger group than we normally have. I do hope this aside that you enjoyed your stay and will visit us again soon. Best Wishes

We spent 3 nights at the hotel last week, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were polite, friendly and professional. The food was high quality and well presented. There was also a good wine list. We had a sea front room which we requested, which was quite small, but with a wonderful view. We have had a stressful time in recent months and just needed a good rest and change of scenery and this break fitted our goal perfectly.

Fantastic time with staff being very attentive without being overwhelming. Restaurant really good and very good value for money. Good wine list and Good selection of ales from Southwold.
Only problem was the room was very hot and even with the windows open, we could not get the room cooler.
Would we recommend this hotel? Absolutely yes.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view.

Best value hotel in Aldeburgh I think. I could see the sea whilst lying in bed! My room (8) was not very big and would have been cramped for 2. Very good food. I really don't like the way the reception desk is situated at the bottom of the stairs-it feels like the staff are checking up on your bedtime! But overall I recommend this place and will stay again.

A year ago we had an exceptional wedding at the White Lion. A year on we returned to celebrate our first anniversary with our 8 month old son and were welcomed as if we were old friends. This is what makes the White Lion such a brilliant place to stay, Peter and his team are so welcoming, nothing is to much trouble and we were well looked after for the duration of our stay. In our room was a pack of baby toiletries which was a nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening dinner... delicious and chef served up an anniversary treat for afters. Thank you White Lion see you next year if not before.

Room Tip: Book a room facing the sea, the view is worth it
