From the minute we walked in the door to reception, we were treated fabulously. The room was spotless, the staff were polite, caring and very friendly. Food superb. Breakfast such a choice, and the views, what can I say, such a relaxing break, really didn't want to leave. Will certainly be back. Loved the honesty box (we were honest). Thank... More

Things I liked: + location - on the cliff edge overlooking The Pier + the food + my room (I didn't have a sea view but the rates reflected this) + the honesty box in the room - it contained a huge bar of Aero, Kettle crisps, wine... and other things to tempt + onsite car parking restricted to residents...

We were heading to Cromer for the weekend for a wedding and a room was booked for me without my choosing so I didn't know what to expect when we got there. When we arrived we were checked in quickly with information given about the hotel and meal times and a table was booked for us that evening in the... More

On 'Street View' this hotel looks like an old factory or worse, but that's because it only shows you the rear entrance to the car park. Go round the front (another beware - that's where your Sat-Nav will take you and it's a dead end) and you find a nice Victorian facade right on the sea front overlooking the pier.... More

This was a last minute booking (at an excellent price), at 7.30pm on a sunday evening, we stumbled across this Victorian Hotel. Having ventured in to enquire if any rooms were available, my partner returned with a sea view room booked. We parked in the small car park at the back of the hotel. Once inside the Victorian elegance was... More

Our first visit to Cromer and The Red Lion and what a lovely hotel! A lovely welcome at reception and the room didn't disappoint. We stayed in room 14 which over looked the sea and pier so can't grumble about the view! Bathroom was really nicely finished with a bath. Breakfast was faultless, beautiful Full English and a buffet with... More
