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

When not so happy with the sea view room but kindly upgraded it to a fabulous one, with friendly professionalism. Food great and drinks prices more economical than expected. Enjoyed it so much that we stayed an extra... More

We stayed at the Pier Hotel for only one night (6/7/2015) and found the hotel to be well below standard. After reading some of the reviews we expected the rooms to be of a high standard. How wrong we were, the bathroom was so filthy and in desperate need of updating and cleaning. The corner of the broken bath panel... More

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
