The Red Lion is certainly somewhere we would not hesitate to stay at again, in fact the sooner the better in my opinion. We arrived with our two large dogs to a lovely friendly welcome, the rooms we had were spotless and restful in décor with ample, coffee, tea and biscuit beverages, hairdryer, dressing gowns and even a bowl of...

I am part of a small group of friends who visit Cromer annually in early February. We enjoy a night ‘on the town’ to celebrate/remember the life of a close friend who died 5 years ago and to visit his grave the next day. For the past 4 years we have stayed at the Red Lion for our ‘remembrance’ night... More

I booked two rooms for myself and my wife and her parents as part of a birthday weekend. Cromer was somewhere that we had always wanted to visit and trip Advisor narrowed down the potential places at which to stay. Red Lion was at the top of the list when we first looked with plenty of rooms to spare. However... More

At last ...the people that run this hotel have obviously stayed at hotels themselves, the little touches like the 'honesty box' for the snacks in the room and real tea & coffee made all the difference . Very clean and great décor . The staff were extremely friendly yet courteous and very efficient with nothing being too much trouble, and... More

Stayed for a long weekend in winter (Feb) which is the best time to go. The pub area was always very busy which, for me, is a good sign if the 'locals' go there. There are only 17 rooms and ours was very clean,warm and nicely decorated. We had a pier and sea view with a swivel two seater armchair... More

My partner and I really enjoyed the Red Lion experience in the cold winter, BUT we were very comfortable - snug and warm in our lovely suite overlooking the grey sea with a view too of the pier. The pub area was so inviting with a lovely log fire and obviously popular with the locals - always a good sign... More

We drove up to Cromer one Sunday as a bit of a "run out" and ate here for lunch. Considering it was busy and there were only 2 waiting staff we were served quite quickly and the service was friendly. In many places in Norfolk you seem to get "Norfolk Portions" ie. a plate piled high to make up for... More
