We visit the Pier Hotel fairly regularly for Sunday lunches. Without doubt the Pier is the nicest place to go in Gorleston for a Sunday lunch. The food is always good and the staff are really friendly and go out of their way to look after the customers. The hotel is in a superb spot on the pier, with the... More

We had a meal at the Pier Hotel on the 5th June, 2015, and took my parents along too. The meal was absolutely delicious and the lady who served us, remembered me and my husband from a previous occasion. She recalled that I had a dairy difficulty and made sure that my meal was free from dairy (not having buttered... More

Following a recent bereavement we chose to have a 'sympathy wake' (their words not mine!) at The Pier Hotel which included a very pleasant private room with its own bar. The service was first class and attentive with guests being offered tea and coffee as they arrived. When we booked we were given a good choice of buffet food which... More

Had a nostalgic visit to the hotel today and stopped for lunch. The service was 100% and the food arrived without a long wait. I had the best Hunters chicken I've ever had anywhere and the the portion size was huge. Husband had beautiful fish and chips with lovely white flaky fish. I would recommend eating here to anyone who... More

Dropped in for an impromptu lunch over the bank holiday weekend. Ordered a light lunch of paninis, house veggie burger, and a glass of the house white wine and a larger. Food was pleasant if a little over priced and lacked any real presentation or finesse. Real bottles of sauce for example would be better rather than the greasy spoon... More

This hotel was amazing, the views around are beautiful. The staff are friendly and give great room service. The rooms are perfect for what we needed with a lovely bed and a clean modern bathroom. Would happily come back to this hotel, highly recommended.

Just had a long weekend in the sunrise suite, room 107 and it was absolutely amazing. You walk into a living, dining area with wall mounted tv and mini bar. French doors lead out to the balcony that looks over the fabulous beach. Through to the bedroom with a seating area in the bay window and another tv. There is... More
