My wife and I stayed for 2 nights with some friends. Good Points: - The standard of service from all members of staff was outstanding. A special mention for the waitress Ellie (I think this is her name) who always had a smile on her face and went out of her way to 'go the extra mile'. - The location... More

Have been to Aldeburgh a few times and it really is a peaceful and relaxing place although it can be very busy when it comes to car parking, have also stayed at the Brudenell which was very good, but I am afraid that my two nights stay at the White Lion was not so enjoyable. We booked a tuck into... More

As usual we had a very good stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Evening meal was excellent and the breakfast was up to the very high standard that we have come to expect from the White Lion. All in all we would highly recommend the hotel to anybody wanting a relaxing stay in Aldeburgh.

Aldeburgh is a delightful town, nice shops and lots of fresh fish, Thorpeness just near is worth a visit tea rooms, boating lake, house in the clouds, very old post windmill and antique centre, the theatre and shops at Snape Maltings are a must as well, And in Aldeburgh its is worth queuing for the fish & chips, and the...

34 years after our first visit we returned! The location is directly opposite the beach with its fishing boats and fresh fish sheds. The hotel is no longer a B&B pub, but a proper small hotel. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the food excellent. We stayed one night on a dinner inclusive basis. Dinner was superb. Our last... More

Love this place, great location, helpful staff, wonderful food, clean well kept hotel. Made my Birthday stay special. Will return. The one night breaks are great value for money. A full afternoon tea would have been nice as this was in the price a year ago.

My wife and I have just returned from a 2-day break in Aldeburgh and chose the White Lion because of their offer of breakfast and evening meal with the room for a very nice price. This is the third hotel we have visited with this kind of offer and the other two occasions were really not very good, so we... More

We booked lunch in Aldeburgh as we were exploring the area last weekend. The White Lion has been on my list to visit for a while, probably because of it's location. I think the hotel portrays mixed messages - entering the bar and brasserie through a glass door into the bar area all looks very modern. The brasserie, although a... More

Just enjoyed a one night stay at The White Lion. We have stayed there numerous times over the last 30 years or so but in recent years it has gone from strength to strength. We have usually occupied the same superior room and love the facilities, space and sea view. The staff were all just brilliant and although we only... More
