This hotel was a real gem. The location is great with the shingle beach being straight opposite the front door and being walking distance from the local high street with shops, cafes and restaurants. We stayed on a dinner bed and breakfast rate and the food was fantastic with plenty of choice for both breakfast and dinner. The hotel was... More

We had booked to stay here after being highly recommended. We had booked month's in advance and were very excited about our stay. We were allocated Room 7 as we had booked a sea view room. The room door was behind a fire door so you had to close the fire door to get into the room. A minor problem... More

My wife and I had our annual break in Aldeburgh.We stayed at the White Lion. The staff were 1st class and our stay was most enjoyable and I can recommend an out of season break here. 2 items do need attention,the pillows need an upgrade and the shower pressure is very poor. I note the management responses to comments on... More

The White Lion doesnt disappoint. This is my third visit in the last year, and I like the mix of slightly faded old and the modernity of the restaurant and the young friendly staff. The breakfast is very good - we had scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and muffin, and it was delicious. The coffee was ok, not great, but the... More

The location in Aldeburgh simply can't be beat, and the views from the three rooms on the top floor are spectacular. The staff all seem to be hand picked for helpfulness and friendliness, and the restaurant is good value for money. It is a bit overpriced for the location, but this doesn't seem to affect its popularity so you can't... More

Booked a double room with a sea view, and paid a little extra for early booking in (1pm) - well worth it. The hotel is very well located in Aldeburgh, right on the seafront, and near to the shops and restaurants. We ate in the Brasserie at the hotel and the food was excellent and so convenient, particularly as it... More

It is the third time we returned to stay at the White Lion. The first time we stayed in the top graded sea view room, the second time we stayed in the standard sea view room , both lovely. This time we stayed in a standard inland room, it was much smaller and fairly characterless although all were spotless; Pay... More

Couldn't have been happier with the White Hotel. Good rooms, we had a great view overlooking the beach with the fishing boats, which were very picturesque. Nice bar. I'm not normally one for breakfast, but I really enjoyed this one.

The location is perfect and the staff are very friendly. Clean and nice romantic environment. It is however overpriced for it's location. Restaurant is good but not excellent. Overall i think it is overrated. I saw plenty of small places to rent and B&B's that will be my first choice the next time.

We have just had another great couple of days with The White Lion, this being our fifth or sixth stay now. Made a fuss of us as returning guests with a complimentary glass of anniversary bubbly. Room was quite spacious with fresh decor, (the room that we had last time was smaller and a bit tired looking). Food as always... More
