We stayed here for a last min night away and our first visit to the norfolk Coast. Everything exceeded our expectations of The Golden Lion. We had a few drinks in the bar on Sat night and the staff were friendly and professional (yet extremely busy!) Thank you all for a wonderful night-we will defiantly return soon!

We booked through late rooms and got a good deal. For the money we paid there is no complaints. Staff all very friendly. Room was large, bed comfortable, nice sea view, good shower. A little cold but soon warmed up. Breakfast was very nice. Would come again!

I popped in with a colleague for a quick lunch. I've passed this impressive looking hotel many times, but always assumed it was too posh for me. Well, it might have been at one time, but it's very ordinary now. However, they're still charging prices as though it is a posh venue. I visited the bar for a bar meal... More

Hotel clean and nicely presented. Could have been warmer. Food excellent, Staff friendly and attentive without being pushy. Entertainment up to a very high standard, singer on the last night too loud. Overall a great relaxing break and will be back.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Golden Lion. This is a charming hotel with lovely spacious public rooms, nicely decorated and pleasant floral (silk) arrangements. There are good views across the Wash and of the seafront. Our room was comfortably appointed and the bathroom had recently been refurbished and was spotlessly clean. Laundry was as you would expect... More

Stayed here in November for 3 nights. hAve visited many times before but not so recently. I feel that it has gone down a bit in the intervening time. The food was not so good. We were given a very small room, and when we complained we were moved to a larger room, why could we not have had the... More

We came for a late season mid week break, we were pleasantly surprised to see the amount of other guests at such a late time of the year, at the seaside. The reception staff made us feel most welcome and were always pleasant and obliging. The food was delicious albeit portion sizes not being too large, but we wouldn't really... More
