Great location looking on to shingle beach with fishing boats, fishermen and their sheds, Hotel rooms were well decorated but smaller rather than larger. Food was very good. Staff were well informed and friendly. Rooms were clean and well equipped. Charming old building so plenty of old fittings and variety of levels. We were happy during our stay

Even the chef came out personally to apologise that they had run out of mussels which my wife had ordered. This was not an issue as in fact what... More

Well-placed for fresh-air and walks along to Thorpeness, perfect cure for the tail end of a New Year cold, on the way there, take lunch at the Crown in Framlingham and tea and cakes at Snape Maltings. Excellent tasting evening meal, good wine list, cocktails (Mojito is a speciality) and night cap - service always with a smile. A sound... More

We were a group of 8 that were spending the New Year in a rented cottage in Aldeburgh for the New Year. We had two meals at the White Lion, one evening dinner and a Sunday lunch. Both were superb. The menus were imaginative without being OTT and the food was beautifully cooked and presented. Service was great with friendly... More
