My wife and I enjoyed a bank holiday weekend at this hotel but did find it a bit expensive for the facilities and the quality of the room. The room was comfortable but a bit dated and the view out of the bedroom window was not great as we were at the back of the hotel. The windows are not... More

Because of a weird mix up, we were given a EADT two for one offer - maybe it might have been okay if it weren't for that? I booked for three - but rather than bring tea for three and charge for two, they brought tea for two. Initially I was disappointed in this but it turned out to be... More

Fabulous seafront location with free parking, there the positives end! Small hot overpriced, dated sea view room. Virtually no drawer space. Poorly cleaned bathroom. Tasteless food at dinner and breakfast. Big disappointment. Never again!

Midweek stay for couple plus dog. Booked room with sea view, well equipped (no minibar, but we don't use them). Comfortable and spacious. Breakfast lots of choice and big servings. Staff extremely helpful - ladies at reception, waiters cleaners - could not have been nicer and more helpful, eg offered porter for bags, but not an issue when we refused.... More

The White Lion Hotel is the perfect place for a relaxing get away. We booked a sea view room and asked for the window to be opened fully as the weather was so good. We had dinner in the hotel both evenings and for breakfast for both mornings. The breakfast is fresh cooked, plenty of toast and tea or coffee,... More

Decided to take my Mother and Son to Aldeburgh and eat at a nice restaurant instead of fish and chips on a bench... Wish I'd done the latter!!! Ordered Fish & Chips for myself and my mother and a burger for my son. Chips and peas were really overdone & chucked everywhere on the plate and neither of us ate... More

A great stay. Wonderful food, service - staff friendly and attentive. Our room was lovely, linen good, comfortable sleep a little compact. The town is a step back in time. Lovely. Recommend and definitely will be back. Well done to all.

Offered the use of a porter though.Nice bar and restaurant area. Very friendly and efficient staff. Traditional Hotel - first impressions GOOD. Had a meal... More

Nice hotel with very friendly staff. However for the price the room was small and hot. Breakfast ok but we had to remind re our toast and strangely my partner got scrambled eggs but no toast. Lots of staff and very friendly reception staff.
