Went to the hotel for a wake and stayed over as we had driven a long way. The wake was handled very well, the staff worked constantly bringing food out and seeing that everyone had coffee or tea. The buffet was excellent, plenty of good food for all. The hotel is located on the harbour, and our room looked out... More

Room 205, shower only. very clean, view south along the beach and to sea. The only fault we could find was the weak coffee at breakfast. Attentive staff, good meals and breakfast. Had the room and meal deal. A minutes walk from the beach. 15 min drive into Great Yarmouth. 20 min walk to Gorleston.

I was asked to organise a wake for my mother-in-law so i looked at the major hotels in Gorleston-on-Sea. I went to the first not impressed with their attitude, cost and menu. I then went to The Pier Hotel. I met the owner and the staff showed me the Wine Bar room which had a bar and a view of... More

My husband, myself and my son stayed in the 'Sunrise suite' between Christmas and New Year 2014. The room was exceptional; beautifully and immaculately decorated in an 'Art-Deco' style. It had an enormous lounge, two televisions, temperature control (x 2), a balcony overlooking the sea, bathrobes, slippers, armchairs, complimentary toiletries and good quality linen. There was also a fridge, thick,... More

My wife and I stayed there last Friday and Saturday and were given a free up-grade on the second floor over looking the beach and sea. The room was very comfortable with two arm chairs and a dressing table chair. There was plenty of hanging and storage space. The TV was set back into the wall and could be viewed... More

Very well located, great views and very nice helpful staff. Unfortunately however the restaurant diner was not so good, and the breakfast was a disaster. Room was lovely except for the door which let a lot of light and more importantly noise in.
