Fantastic location but the size and quality of the room did not reflect the price. Really disappointed as we booked a night for a special occasion and expected more from the website's description. Bathroom tiles needed re grouting, furniture very corporate and average. Downstairs communal areas are more luxurious with a lovely bar area. Will not choose this hotel again.

The staff at this hotel are excellent - they can't do enough to make you welcome. A group of us stayed here for 2 nights in twin rooms which were really not up to the standard that the price dictated. Pokey bathroom and rooms not really big enough to acommodate two individual beds - but would be ok for a... More

Really made to feel welcome. Every member of staff we encountered were friendly, and got the notion of "service". Good food and drink, nice buzz in the modern restaurant, comfortable bed and a great shower.

Stayed here for a weekend visit and was very impressed with the hotel The main areas were nicely decorated and the staff were very attentive Breakfast was a nice experience and was served at your table rather than the buffet style which was a nice touch The only downside was our room - no2 which whilst being clean and tidy...

Great location on the sea front. Room quite small but very clean & comfortable. Superb breakfasts. Good restaurant, but with a limited menu for longer stays. Small car park, but free parking opposite.

this is a comfortable hotel,the service was friendly and obliging,the lift to upper floors was inadequate only going to the first floor and then accompanied by a staff member, The main adverse comment is about the bathrooms which should be updated,this was good location and the hotel had a good restaurant particularly for breakfast

Booked at The White Lion after reading Trip Adviser reviews. My wife and I took our dog and were delighted with the location right facing the beach. All Hotel staff smartly attired in uniforms and most efficient and friendly. Rooms rather small but typical of a Hotel of this age. All public rooms very well furnished and tastefully decorated. Plenty... More

As a previous reviewer has mentioned, there is not a lot of hotel accommodation in Aldeburgh, hence the pretty high rates I suppose. Having said that, although this looks from the outside like a traditional seaside hotel, it is more modern and seems to have been refurbished in a nice contemporary style. The room was comfortable and modern with all... More
