When it finally arrived it was shameful. The meat was gray and appeared to be pre-sliced and re heated. The Yorkshires were... More

Ordered a seafood linguine dish. Absolutely no mention of cream on the menu but the pasta arrived swimming in cream. It was like eating a dessert and they were so busy there were no staff free to rectify.

Lovely comfortable rooms, but best was the staff from all areas of the hotel who were friendly, efficient and welcoming, always smiling. Food was varied and tasty. Rooms have pleasant views over either river or sea views.

We stayed with family for a birthday weekend. I love Gorleston. The hotel was spotlessly clean, it looks like it has had a refurbishment recently the staff were above & beyond helpful and friendly food served & breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended and I shall most definitely be returning.
