Top stuff. Excellent reception, fantastic rooms and restaurant. The food is top quality and your'e right on the beach. The locals are friendly if a little mad, but the whole experience is fantastic. Plus if you book direct with the hotel you save dollar.

After about 5 minutes, i started sipping my coffee as it was going cold. I finished my coffe after 10 minutes and my partner was still waiting... More

The Pier Hotel was recommended to me by an old friend so maybe my expectations were high. But I just didn't like it! The staff were very good, the room was fine but it just wasn't my idea of a hotel. It is located opposite a bingo hall and other garishly illuminated food outlets (including a 'carvery by the sea'.... More

Having had a meal recently at this establishment, me and my partner thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The staff couldn't do enough for us and were very friendly and welcoming. The food was very good quality and had good sized portions. The location was also fantastic as it was on the beautiful beach of Gorleston which we walked... More

Warm welcoming friendly staff. No elevator and no assistance, so beware if your room is on the third floor like ours was. Large recently refurbished and well appointed room with a good sea view. Nice bathroom with excellent shower and facilities. Busy bar serving a varied and very well priced menu with good seafood specials too. Properly served English Breakfast... More

My partner and I stayed for 3 nights and some family and friends stopped for a couple of nights from the 29th June 2014. We had gathered together from across the country for my Mother's funeral. The sympathy wake was also at the Pier. On every level out stay was made very comfortable under sad circumstances. Excellent food available all... More

We had a lovely stay on the weekend of 22/23 June 2014. Hotel staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Hotel has a lovely art deco feel to it and the re-furbished rooms are very comfy and nicely decorated. The shower was fab! We were in a side room on the 3rd floor, so didn't have the... More

My husband took me here for a couple of days as a birthday present. Our view overlooked the sea and you could hear the waves at night softly lapping which was lovely. The room had been refurbished and was really pleasant. All the staff were extremely helpful and we were impressed by all of them. We ate in the hotel... More
