We booked one night on late rooms. I decided to pay a little more to book a room with a sea view. We checked in around 3.30 pm and were informed that we had been given a free upgrade. The room was fantastic. Very spacious and well equipped. With a small balcony. The bathroom was spectacular, bath robes, double sink... More

Staying for 3 nights starting tonight (wed). Leaving straight after work so should get there around 8ish for our sea view room. Check in, shower, change and into the bar........... You can guess the rest for next 2 days! Have stayed before and just great to be going back. Counting down the hours now.

Have stayed here several times. Sometimes with my husband, sometimes a girlie few days with my daughter and grand-daughter. Every time our rooms have been spotless, the food has been great, the beer excellent, and the staff brilliant. We love it here. Thank you Red Lion.

Always great to visit the Red Lion. Great rooms and the dog loves it. Food excellent and staff second to none. OK not the lap of luxury but you don't expect that from Cromer ! Perfectly in keeping with the town. Only reservation as age creeps on is lack of lift.

Yes I like this place. You can tell that they have really thought through every aspect of the customer experience. Room 20 really nice and large-almost a suite. Very quiet given its location in Cromer on a Saturday night. Bar and restaurant very both busy for a winter's evening.
