We decided that we wanted a short break and managed to book a room at the Golden Lion. Have always stayed at another Hotel in the area before but as our last visit there was disappointing we wanted to try an alternative. We were really pleased with our choice. The standard room still had a sea view and breakfast was... More

Unfortunately we must have picked the coldest time to stay in this hotel, the radiator in our room did not work properly but the staff did their best they brought us electric radiators. Th food as usual for was very good and staff were very helpful. all in all a good stay.

The Golden Lion was a very good B&B experience on our road trip around the coast - the food and value for money was excellent - quirky booking in procedure that could be improved, but the whole visit was worth it as the hotel has great views over the sea and minutes walk to all that Victorian seaside experience.

My Mum and I booked last minute to stay at the Golden Lion in January for one night and enjoyed our experience. The location of the hotel was great as it's right on the sea front and easily accessible for everything in Hunstanton. In the summer I'm sure it'd be a great spot to stay for the attractions. We were... More

We have just returned from a weekend break at the Golden Lion. The hotel is an excellent location and looks out onto lovely views. We have stayed in about ten Shearings hotels and we felt this one measured to most.They sometimes get negative reviews about being old but we have always been satisfied. Our room was really lovely and well... More
