The setting of the hotel is right next to a big sandy beach strip with an inside/outside pub area and a restaurant part. No busy roads around and no significant traffic noise. There is ample free parking at the house. Rooms on the second floor have a nice view onto the sea, the first floor view towards the sea is... More

Enjoyed a warm welcome - the staff bending over backwards to give us a fish and chip supper despite us turning up late! The hotel backs onto a beautiful beach although only the best suites seem to have the sea view. Also it doubles as a lively pub so if you like a quiet corner to chat in this is... More

We have stayed at The Pier Hotel on several occasions now and have always enjoyed a warm welcome from the very obliging staff. You are always made to feel valued and any requests are dealt with promptly. The hotel is to a very high standard and each room enjoys a slightly different view either over the beach and seashore, or... More

We had a family party for 12 here. None of us had eaten here before but we had eaten at the sister venue in Gt Yarmouth which has always been very pleasant. All the staff were very helpful (when booking and visiting ahead of meal) John, Karen,Louisa and our servers on the night. The whole party was pleased with the... More

The owners of this hotel are pulling out all the stops to make it the top hotel in the area. Its in a quiet beach location but plenty of buses to Great Yarmouth if that's your thing. We ate at the hotel and the food presentation and quality was top notch. We had an upgraded bedroom with a balcony facing... More

We have had lunch here on two recent trips to Gorleston. Pleasant location near the pier. Good value food and drinks with pleasing and efficient service. My battered cod was excellent with pretty good chips.

Good hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Food is very good with an enormous breakfast very well presented. The bar area is very lively & Bar meals are very good. Good car parking & location for beach. Stayed on business but will make a good holiday hotel. Will stay again.

We had our work Christmas night out here & it was awful! We arrived & went into the dining area where everyone else was sitting only to be shown through to a small bar area where ours was the only table, when we asked why we were sitting in there we where told by a very unfriendly member of staff...
