Lovely hotel, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Very good breakfast and dinner and even left an Easter egg in every room. All very good and would recommend to friends. Easy parking opposite hotel. Sally

The White Lion is a great place to stay with children and dogs. A stones throw from the beach and a short walk into town. The food was very good, staff very welcoming and the decor bright and up to date. We'll definitely be back!

Stayed for 1 night over Easter weekend in April 2014. When we arrived our room was ready before check in time, which was great. We stayed in an inland room which was very clean and tidy and more than suited our needs. Lunch in the hotel brasserie was very tasty and reasonably priced. The staff were very welcoming and helpful.... More

Just returned home from our second lovely stay at the white lion hotel, couldn't have asked for more! Lovely location and the sea view from the room is beautiful. Clean room and staff couldn't have been more welcoming. Evening meal and breakfast were very nice and it was good not to be rushed out once finished. Defiantly will be returning,... More

Having been for a wedding about 18 months ago we had promised ourselves a return visit and we weren't disappointed. The food was of a good standard and well presented. The staff were helpful and friendly. The dining room is nicely decorated. The hotel is well situated for a walk along the sea front afterwards. The meal was reasonably priced.... More

Very nice hotel, with friendly staff and very comfortable rooms. A little bit pricey for b&b but in a very nice area of Suffolk. We were told when we arrived that the hotel restaurant was full for that night and the following night but whilst buying a drink at the bar later was then offered a table !! Food a... More

We spent 4 nights at the hotel and really enjoyed our time there. The staff were very attentive and helpful. We had a sea view room which was very comfortable and clean. The bed was a good size. The choice of breakfast was excellent, cooked or continental. We also had a delicious evening meal there. It was our first visit... More

This was our third visit to The White Lion and certainly won't be the last. We had brilliant service - staff very cheerful and keen that all should be just right for us. The sea view room was lovely (the window does need a bit of attention both regarding paintwork and ease of opening) and the food terrific (barring the... More

Although the restaurant and bar have been updated in the last few years the rooms could do with a refurbishment, especially the bathroom fittings. For the price I would expect more attention to detail in the bedrooms and bathrooms. Staff friendly and attentive,
