We came upon this place by chance, and what a good find it was! A lovely friendly welcome at the bar, and very pleasant and helpful staff. The food can be chosen from a very extensive menu, and it delicious, and quite reasonably priced. Altogether a very enjoyable experience. Thoroughly recommended.

Staying in Gorleston but not at the Pier Hotel it was recommended to us for the food. Superb, I had the Skate Wing which was superb and my wife had the Sea Bass fillet which she said was equally as good. Washed down with a couple of very nice House Reds and a few Gin and Tonics made a great... More

This is our third time to Gorleston-on-sea and the first to The Pier, we wish we had stayed before as it is far better than the one we have stayed in which I thought was supposed to be the best in Gorleston. The reason I found it surprising is that the exterior, I feel, doesn't showcase the lovely interior. The... More

Yes, a really wonderful location. Step out of this glorious hotel and the walk way along the pier is wonderful. On walking back the view is quite splendid. I was staying there on business. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Trips aways always eat up your spending money so take the opportunity to get a discount off all your... More

We have added this hotel to our favourite list and will definitely be back in the summer! We were kindly upgraded to a sea view room. The scene from our window was spectacular. The room was modern, clean and comfy. The food was excellent and well presented and the staff were friendly and made it a birthday to remember with... More

Paid extra for a seaview but the fire escape was somewhat distracting!!! Room was too hot and we did tell them on checkout so hopefully they will do something about it. Nightclub nextdoor empties @ 2.30 so either close the windows to cut out the noise or open them to get rid of the heat!!! Staff were lovely and food... More

I stayed here for a week during a business trip from Aberdeen & was greatly impressed. Upon checking in, I was immediately told that I had been upgraded. My room was on the second floor and when entering I was greeted with an extremely spacious room with a large bay window, giving great views of the sea front. The room... More

As a child, my parents used to make their annual pilgrimage to Great Yarmouth where we stayed for a week in a humble b & b. Occasionally, we would venture across the river to Gorleston and it was there where I first clapped eyes of The Pier Hotel. I remember thinking how grandiose it looked compared to our lodgings back... More
