“Loved it”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Aldeburgh i sa smal town with lots of charm and a pebbled beach which is certainly worth a visit.

I stayed at the White Lion for noe night. I found the hotel charming and the staff friendly and helpful.

My room was nice and clean, with everything i needed for my stay.
I had chosen a room with a sea view, so I could enjoy the morning sunrise.

The breakfast was server by the table and you can choose between continental or traditional English breakfasts. A good start of the day. I also had an evening metal at the restaurant. The food was nicely cooked and to my taste. The price was reasonable.

I recommend a visit to Aldeburgh, and White Lion is a good choiice for accomodation.

Excellent location, very attentive staff, slightly costly but overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Did not try the restaurant although the menu did look appetising. Good location for places like Minsmere Nature reserve and others close by.

A delightful clean, relaxing hotel full of character. Excellent food with staff who go beyond the call of duty. Had all meals at the hotel and each meal a joy.
Ideally situated alongside the pebble beach which is great for a stroll either along the beach or Aldeburgh.

Room Tip: Sea view room. Wonderful

We loved the position of The White Lion. It was particularly nice walking back in the dark...really atmospheric as no light pollution! Breakfast great...we were really impressed with the huge pot of coffee and friendly service. Room was clean and cosy...would like to try a sea view next time. Definitely one of the friendliest hotels I've been to. We are already planning our next break!

Room Tip: Sea view recommended

You have to be lucky to get it, but Room 14 has one window looking over the beach and the fishing boats (you can watch them being launched at the crack of dawn without getting out of bed!) and the other looking along the coast towards Thorpeness.
Very comfortable bed and a large bathroom (could have done with a big shelf or small table to put your things on, with so much space to spare). Didn't have a main meal here, but breakfast was very good - big mushrooms! It's also a nice change to have your breakfast brought to you, rather than self-service - everything was freshly cooked and hot. I was a bit disappointed that we could not have a bar-snack menu at lunch time in the brasserie; only the full lunch menu.
Reception staff very pleasant and efficient, and chambermaids all said "hello", which doesn't always happen.

Room Tip: Room 14 - double aspect sea views (as long as you don't mind being woken up by the fishing boats...

This is an idyllic quaint seaside hotel in the picturesque village/town of Aldeburgh,
Stayed here fore two days for work purposes and was pleasantly surprised and very happy with the choice.
Situated right on the pebble beach of Aldeburgh the hotel is an old building with historic value.
The food is excellent, nice relaxing bar and the service is brilliant and friendly.

Certainly recommend this hotel for any reason, business or pleasure whatever age group and agenda.

Room Tip: ask for a seaview

A bulbous time spent at White Lion Aldburgh. The staff are extremely pleasant & helpful & a credit to the management. This was our second visit & will look forward to another time. Excellent food cooked by an excellent chef & served by excellent staff.
Can you tell yet that we had a good time?

Room Tip: Go for the sea view, we'll worth the few pounds extra.
