Reviewed 23 January 2014

Always a pleasure to stay at the White Lion, and the special offer breaks are always exceptional value. Staff are always friendly and welcoming, food is excellent (including legendary Eggs Benedict for breakfast), and of course the location is stunning.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms are of course amazing, especially in the summer, but don't worry about upgradi...

We stayed at The White Lion for 3 nights in January for a post-Christmas rest. We had stayed there once before the hotel was refurbished and loved its atmosphere. Our second stay was equally good and we liked the new interior design and decor. As before we had a sea view room - in our opinion essential when staying there. We had delicious meals served by a friendly, helpful and efficient young team, and generally felt welcome and well looked after by all staff. We look forward to our third visit in the near future.

We had a lovely weekend at the White Lion, our third visit, and our first with our children (aged 4 and 2) - the staff were so friendly and put sandwiches in our room for the children when we arrived. The food was amazing and there was a really relaxed atmosphere. Very very clean, and no extra charge for the children even though they provided a camp bed, cot and breakfast for them. Very impressed, we will be back.

Room Tip: We had a sea view which was really amazing, as the hotel is opposite the beach.

Having frequented the Restaurant at The White Lion Hotel on numerous occasions, I was relly looking forward to my winter weekend break. From the moment that we arrived in Reception I knew that I was not going to be disappointed. The staff were very friendly and efficient whilst remaining extremely professional. The food in the Restaurant was superb and once again the service impeccable. Not forgetting the Rioja which was also excellent. All in all a fantastic hotel in an enviable position with extremely well trained staff. Cant wait for my next visit.

Room Tip: The Sea View is superb.

We were in Aldeburgh for a wedding so staying at The White Lion. The room was clean and bright, the staff were incredibly friendly and the breakfast was amazing! We only stayed 2 nights but had a great stay. I would definitely recommend it for a break. Lovely town too. Lovely beach.

We had a wonderful stay in the white lion in November. It was a perfect base for a refreshing break on the coast and away from London. The beach is right outside the front door and the town immediately to your right, the white lion couldn't be better situated.


Treat yourself to fish and chips and walk along the shingle beach, if this doesn't get your 2014 feeling great, nothing will.
