We have just returned from a three-night break over Easter (Friday- Monday) in Hunstanton, Norfolk at the Golden Lion hotel. Hotel is owned/run by Coast and Country Hotels. It is in a fantastic spot right in the Centre of Hunstanton overlooking the Wash. On many levels would recommend this hotel and indeed I think we fell in love with Hunstanton... More

The hotel is in a good location and could potentially represent good value for money, but several things spoiled the stay. First impression there was only enough milk and coffee for one each in the rooms. I did leave a note asking for more and did get it but you shouldn't have to ask. The room was quite nice but... More

Our room was 201.Very quiet but for the Pigeons cooing from 6am. Good sea views. Long delays in Bathroom for light to come on which did cause problems in the night. Food good and Staff good although a bit thin on the ground. Never saw any Management. Adequate room for the price.

I stayed at this hotel with my elderly mother in 2008,when we both very much enjoyed the experience. I have some good friends who enjoy bird watching, 2 who live in Lancashire and my partner who lives in Chichester so we booked this hotel for 5 days and 4 nights half board from my previous holidays' experience. We arrived on... More

We stayed for one night, a Sunday, in this old fashioned hotel with a view over the green and the sea. The first room we were given was very spacious, but there was a loud humming coming up the wall. Reception was very helpful, indicating it was a known issue with equipment in the kitchens below, and changed our room... More

A newspaper offer of "third night for £20" made this a £35 pppn break for half-board. Last room on the first floor, so no-one stumbling past at 1 a.m. Comfortable, large, and warm, but no light at the writing desk :-(. Food very good (scrambled egg excepted), portions modest, but very adequate. Expected litle variety at dinner for the price,... More

This was the first building to be completed in the Victorian development of "New Hunstanton". It still stands in pride of place overlooking the green, the war memorial and the formal flowerbeds. It caters, these days, for coach parties and clients of a certain age looking for a comfortable, mid-market getaway. A little faded, perhaps, but clean and spacious. The... More

Thank you for your review. I am so sorry that the fire alarms went off during the night; this is not a normal occurrence. It does indeed appear that it was the exceptionally high winds that caused them to go off. I have passed your comments onto the kitchen regarding your thoughts about our menu. Once again I am sorry... More

Booked last minute and got good rate. Needed short break not too far from home - this was ideal. Hotel in good location and easy to access at this time of year.

We have just returned from a 3 night break at the Golden Lion. We spotted the hotel on a previous visit to Norfolk but the mediocre reviews and it being a Shearings hotel put us off a bit however now with good reviews the outstanding location seemed perfect for a winter break in Norfolk.
