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,

Excellent location, very attentive staff, slightly costly but overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Did not try the restaurant although the menu did look appetising. Good location for places like Minsmere Nature reserve and others close by.

A delightful clean, relaxing hotel full of character. Excellent food with staff who go beyond the call of duty. Had all meals at the hotel and each meal a joy. Ideally situated alongside the pebble beach which is great for a stroll either along the beach or Aldeburgh.

We loved the position of The White Lion. It was particularly nice walking back in the dark...really atmospheric as no light pollution! Breakfast great...we were really impressed with the huge pot of coffee and friendly service. Room was clean and cosy...would like to try a sea view next time. Definitely one of the friendliest hotels I've been to. We are... More

You have to be lucky to get it, but Room 14 has one window looking over the beach and the fishing boats (you can watch them being launched at the crack of dawn without getting out of bed!) and the other looking along the coast towards Thorpeness. Very comfortable bed and a large bathroom (could have done with a big... More

Situated right on the pebble beach of Aldeburgh the hotel is an old building with historic value. The food is excellent, nice relaxing bar and the service is brilliant... More

A bulbous time spent at White Lion Aldburgh. The staff are extremely pleasant & helpful & a credit to the management. This was our second visit & will look forward to another time. Excellent food cooked by an excellent chef & served by excellent staff. Can you tell yet that we had a good time?

Had a really good experience when we spent last night at the hotel. The staff, without exception, were excellent. Bedroom spotless - slightly small but that did not matter to us. Excellent dinner in the restaurant with good bottle of wine - all very reasonably priced.
