Just stayed at The Pier Hotel again, probably my fifth visit. Once again my room was spotless and was generously supplied with toiletries, tea and coffee. I overlooked the beach and sea and had plenty of room. The bed was comfortable and there were no slamming doors to disturb me. The evening meal in the restaurant was excellent, as was... More

Came here in july for a meal with a few of the girls from work. The food was great, could not fault it! But the service wasn't brilliant. The waitress didn't warn us that the plates were hot when she passed them to us over the table, and just gave the impression that she wasnt bothered about being at work.... More

Waited over an hour for our mains, in the mean time all we had was one starter, a bowl of soup! terrible time, dirty plates and lack of attentive staff. Very disappointed indeed. took over three hours for a simple two... More

We stayed for one night in August but would have stayed two if the room was available and will visit again. Upgraded room free of charge, great food, staff and management very friendly, a nice comfortable atmosphere and fantastic position overlooking beach and sea view.

bit of a ghost town on arrival, not as expected, hotel looked a bit tacky, not like on the website, could do with loosing the neon signage. Free parking though, booked in, room was ok smaller than expected for £90! But newly decorated, nice bathroom ,flat screen TV, comfy bed. Not really anywhere else to go in the area, good... More

Great welcome from the staff, then shown to a great comfortable room. Burgers from the menu were fantastic and the service was very quick and polite. I have stayed here a couple of times and the rooms are of a high quality. Bar staff very friendly and helpful especially Laura, Charlotte,Albert and Bob the night porter. I would recommend anyone...

We stayed for just a night passing through, on spec, in late July. We would have stayed 2 if we could but the room we liked was booked. First , service was excellent. We emailed whilst on the road to ask about rooms, price etc, and the Pier was the only hotel to respond within 12 hours (!!). In fact... More

Hotel is fine, we only ate for breakfast and that was good. We had the family room which was ok and most of the rooms have been refurbished and look... More

Cannot review the hotel but the restaurant was terrible. Food was poor, service was average. I had lasgne which tasted like a frozen value pack from a cheap supermarket. The 'bread basket' consisted of 2 slices of plain white bread

We stayed here on a Friday & Saturday to celebrate my husband's birthday in early June. The Hotel is in an excellent position overlooking the wonderful Gorleston Beach on one side and the River Yare on the other. It's quite a small hotel with an even smaller car park, I think there is 1 space per room but this doesn't... More
