We had eaten in the Red Lion quite a few times, but this was our first stay. Being out of season, the room was exceptional for the reduced price - very comfortable bed with high quality furnishings and plenty of wardrobe space, side tables, drawers etc. We stayed in a 'superior' bedroom with sea views from one side of the...

Good location for the beach and town, easy walk to shops/pubs and a nice coast walk up to the lighthouse. The reception staff were very friendly and changed our room from a normal double to the 'Billiard room suite' - Rm 5, apparently just because it was free and better than our booking which apparently did not have a sea...

Just got back from a 2 night stay. Room 16 with a sea view was perfect, we ate both nights in the Red Lion and the service and the food was fab. All the staff are friendly and cater for your every need. The breakfast is amazing. We have been going to Cromer for years and will certainly be staying... More

We booked for one night 18 months ago to celebrate my big 50. We were well advised on the room which lived up to all expectations. We had a balcony with excellent sea views. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We had an evening meal which was very good and served by very polite young man. Breakfast lived up... More

We had eaten here before and decided that although we only lived 45 mins away we would stay so that we could really appreciate the fantastic Atmosphere. From the moment we checked in we were treated with such genuine hospitality not the heart on sleeve stuff that often is so false. The room was perfect with such attention to detail... More

Booked over the phone last Friday as a "spur of the moment" following a sudden desire to see the dogs running on a beach. The room was excellent and perfect with the dogs. Local beers and really very good food - so much so that the Red Lion was recommended by locals as a place to eat when we went... More

If you want to chill out, eat well, not be too posh, just be comfy and cosy, be treated wonderfully by extremely pleasant staff, sleep in lovely clean rooms with big fluffy towels and robes in the en suite, enjoy sea views, bring your dog, who will be made as welcome as you - The Red Lion Cromer ticks all...
