We decided on the spur of the moment to take a drive out to Aldeburgh and stay overnight, I booked the hotel on the Internet and jumped in the car, the one request I made was that parking was available as I was taking my sports car. On arrival my other half popped in to ask where the car park... More

Already have done a QM2 European cruise as well as Texas & Louisiana this year so we just wanted a quiet few days away with the dogs walking. Found the White Lion by chance searching for a dog friendly Hotel. It deserves a better star rating! Even dog treats were in the room when we arrived. First time we have... More

This is an old but nice hotel with a kind personnel. The hotel is located just in front of the sea and is near of many pubs. The breakfast and dinner was nice with a lot of choices ans good service. A little bit expensive

My husband booked this as "one of my 40 presents when I turned 40" (I know how spoilt I am) and it happened to co-inside with Mothering Sunday. This was the perfect opportunity to continue my celebrations with our lovely young daughters. We often visit Aldeburgh as this is one of the nicest coasts to our hometown of Cambridge, however...

Good location. Comfortable stay with friendly staff. Dinner in the Bistro was excellent with attentive staff. Breakfast was a delight, as not the usual disappointing self service, with a good choice of delicious fresh food and cooked options all served with a smile.....a great start to the day.

I stayed for one night having spent the day at Latitude Music Festival. The visit there was a taster and I wanted to spend the night in a comfortable bed in comfortable surroundings. I wasn't disappointed. Whenever I spoke to a member of staff on the telephone before my visit, I found them to be very friendly, welcoming and accommodating.... More

Great location, friendly staff, downstairs accomodation attractive and restaurant resonably priced. Breakfast good, good menu for dinner, however meal was warm rather than hot. Bedroom was small and average decor for the price. Car park small and double parking required with car keys having to be left in reception.

We booked the twin room with sea view for a one night stay as a treat and it was well worth it. The room was excellent, very spacious and with a perfect vista of the beach. Although we didn't eat in the restaurant that evening, the menu looked very tempting and we would certainly consider having dinner there in the... More

I stayed here for two nights with my husband, it was our first time in Aldeburgh. We thought the room was quite simply decorated, but was nice. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We loved the fact that parking around the hotel was free and relatively easy to find a space - a big plus! The breakfast was excellent.... More
