Just got back and already we are checking dates for our next visit. Quite simply the best view of any hotel we have stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot!). Gorleston beach itself is a little piece of England that time has forgot, and all the better for it. The Pier Hotel commands a view along its length... More

We had 2 nights at the Pier Hotel in room 202 which overlooked the town of Gorleston and the harbour. It was very clean, tidy and a bottle of still water each by the bedside table was a nice gesture. A lovely hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant the first night as the... More

Sunrise Suite- great! Being woken up by screaming children throughout the night- awful! Disappointed as it is the second visit of being disturbed during the night by children. Yes it is a family hotel but I don't expect a sleepless nights. Will not be staying again!

From the outside The Pier hotel isn't anything special. There is parking directly outside the hotel and on the street. Hotel reception is pretty basic. The decor in the bar and restaurant is really nice and it's obviously been done up quite recently with art deco inspired designs. There is no lift which caused us a problem with our 85... More

Visited for 2 nights in this lovely hotel in a great location nearly on the beach at Gorleston. Had a room overlooking the beach with a little balcony. Lovely room. We ate at the hotel both nights and had good food both times. The breakfasts are really good and freshly cooked to order food. Lovely friendly staff.

This is a THREE Star hotel where the staff are all FIVE star. I have stayed at many hotels all over the world, but have never met employees who are so willing to make your stay as memorable as possible. Helpful, Friendly, Efficient, and prepared to undertake the smallest task even if it isn't in their job description. The views... More

Stayed for 1 night fir my husbands birthday. The room was clean and comfy, the bed was way too soft for our liking...but that is just personal preference. We enjoyed a few drinks in the sun in outside the bar which was very busy. We booked a table for dinner, the food was pretty good - big portions and a... More
