The White Lion came recommended by friends so we decided to try it whilst on holiday in the charming Aldeburgh resort. We were seated at a nice table even though we had not booked. It was a Tuesday but the restaurant was over 75% full. We ordered a bottle of Sicilan Merlot which was delicious. I was going to order... More

If you pay £800 for three days you might expect a five star hotel. Sadly despite attempts to refurbish rooms the hotel is not more than a three star. Sea view rooms very well done but why not buy a new bed to give a good nights sleep? The staff are excellent and without exceptions were always trying to be... More

Never been to the Suffolk Coast but fell in love with the place! Spent 3 nights here and although the bedroom was facing inland and a bit tired,the food in the Brasserie and the hard working lovely staff more than made up for this. Great location,right on the sea front so plenty of opportunities for long walks.Lots of coffee shops... More

We joined a large party of friends for our first experience of eating at the White Lion Hotel's Brasserie Bleue in Aldeburgh. We knew of the hotel as one of Aldeburgh's finest and anticipated decent fare but potentially in a rather staid hotel atmosphere. How wrong were we! From walking through the door it was clear that this is no... More

Stayed for the weekend to celebrate an anniversary. This hotel has excellent staff and to me is its best asset. Every member of staff we interacted with were very professional and polite, so thanks lads and lasses. The hotel is also in a good position with handy parking. However, for me the price for the room we had did not... More

The hotel has a good location, on the sea front, and large communal areas, which I suspect is why it is so expensive. The decor is shabby in the communal areas. I had booked a twin bedded room for myself, my daughter and my dog. We arrived with my other daughter, who was booked elsewhere. Our bedroom was tastefully decorated... More

Perfectly situated on the sea front, walk for miles with the sea air. A very good old hotel with modern furnishings, excellent afternoon tea and a good restaurant for dinner. Friendly staff. Only drawback is that there is no air conditioning for summer days - but fresh air with open windows.

We had a fabulous Sunday lunch at this hotel. It was not cheap but the chef and his staff went out of their way to accommodate us and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The roast was perfectly cooked and the potatoes were delicious.

We had a great meal in this hotel and pub that is right on Aldeburgh seafront. It has obviously been refurbished recently because the restaurant is beautiful and like new! Staff were all polite and food came quickly and was high quality. All of us agreed we will be returning next time we are in Suffolk!

Purely on the hotel, it was pricey for what it is. We didnt have a sea view and the room was crazy hot. They did leave a fan which was on all night but i had a terrible nights sleep! Fan didnt cool the room much at all and window it seemed couldnt be opened much-perhaps a security issue. The... More
