We stayed here again this March and as we've come to expect from this hotel it was excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the sea view room was very good with a comfortable bed and a view of the fishing boats on the beach, The breakfasts were all you could ask for with a really good selection of...

Stayed here with a group if golfing friends in May. The rooms were good and spacious. Dinner and breakfast were excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A slight hiccup with the booking was sorted out in a very efficient and proffessional manner. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Excellent from the first day to the last. Super staff, always welcoming; good restaurant with a good range of food; choose room 5 for a good sized room and a sea view - then you can watch the crab and lobster boats come in early in the morning.

Wifey bought us a stay at the White Lion knowing how much I love Aldeburgh, seaside walks with our Cavvie, food, wine, beer, real shops, the music of Benjamin Britten and a good lunch of fish and chips. We were not disappointed and the White Lion provided us with the perfect base from which to enjoy a weekend in Aldeburgh.... More

this is a great hotel in a fantastic location right on the seafront, I can't think of anything negative to say, the rooms are well proportioned and comfortable, the restaurant and bar is first class. Can't really comment on the WI FI as I didn't use it as too much to see in the town. Lovely walks along the front... More

We have stayed at The White Lion on several occasions and keep coming back, which probably says it all. This time we had a very comfortable sea-facing room and enjoyed two breakfasts, Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch. As before, the food was delicious, with plenty of choice, and there is a good wine list. One of the best features of... More

We had a lovely stay for one night at the hotel with afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast. The staff were exceptionally welcoming and attentive and all wished him happy birthday. It was my husband's 70th birthday and we had a free room upgrade with a lovely view of the sea. We also had a another surprise as the chef made... More

Overall the room was fine, breakfast excellent and staff very helpful. Continual "background" jazz music was pretty irritating as was the all day reservation of a parking space for a "celebrity" when there was so little on site parking.
