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.

We stayed here for one night in a premier room overlooking the beach. We received a friendly welcome and were offered help with our bags. The room was huge and spacious and had an impressive large wetroom with a robe and slippers provided. The beach view might have been better on a higher floor than the first floor but the... More

My parents stayed here at the end of the summer and had a fabulous weekend. They said the food was lovely, the room was great with a lovely view of the beach and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. They really enjoyed their stay and the staff added some nice touches to make it a memorable weekend. Thank you... More
