“A weekend stay at the White Lion Aldeburgh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

The Staff very friendly and helpful. The room clean and amply equiped. The food good and the service excellent.. Would definitely recommend this hotel. You also have the opportunity for some lovely sea walks in a safe environment.

Room Tip: Park your car where the seagulls dont use it for target practice

Our room was clean and charming with a pleasant view overlooking the high street. The service seemed inconsistent, for example, we would sometimes get a call that our room service was on its way and at other times we didn't. We were told this was due to staff shortage. The beds were comfortable which were unfortunately let down by pillows that were rock hard. A call to reception remedied this when we were supplied with two soft feather pillows. On the breakfast order card I asked for chives and chilli as an addition to my breakfast but none was supplied. The brasserie food was delicious although a bit limited for my vegetarian partner as both options contained strong cheeses. Overall a good hotel which would have scored higher on rooms and service if softer pillows or feather pillows were standard and if the the service had been more consistent.

Another wonderful stay. Room very comfortable with a view over the beach. The food was very good and reasonably priced. All the staff were friendly and keen to make the stay in the hotel as comfortable as possible. We shall return!

Room Tip: It is worth paying extra for a sea view.

Hadn't been here for a very long time and found it totally refurbisherd and remodelled. 10/10 for this. Marvellously situated for walking into town or into the sea.
All our bedrooms were up to 4 star standard as was the service from all members of staff that we encountered. The only downside was there was no smoked fish on the bank holiday Monday breakfast despite the fact that there was a number of outlets not 50 yards away all open. This aside our stay was excellent, totally suitable for our disabled mother/mother-in-law and we would most certainly stay there again. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Been here several times. Always enjoyed our stay. Hotel is clean,comfortable and friendly. Hotel food is excellent. We had a room with a sea view. Lovely. Just a couple of minor gripes. No bran flakes or brown sauce at breakfast. Could have popped down to the local store. Don't be put of though,great hotel.

Room Tip: Sea view Room 24

Lovely hotel, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Very good breakfast and dinner and even left an Easter egg in every room. All very good and would recommend to friends. Easy parking opposite hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the hotel but was seagull noise free!

The White Lion is a great place to stay with children and dogs. A stones throw from the beach and a short walk into town. The food was very good, staff very welcoming and the decor bright and up to date. We'll definitely be back!
