I was going to try to put into context some of the observations I am about to make. The context being that Aldeburgh as a place is a hipper than thou, former fishing village (a few boats left mind) where its easier to buy a Jack Wills shirt than a pint of milk. Generally everything is a tad pricey, as...

Lovely warm welcome and really friendly staff who were more than happy to help us. Room itself was lovely, we chose a 'sea view' room which was great, bathroom was dated but fully functional and clean (although could have been a bit better..). Breakfast was very tasty. Overall a pleasant stay.

Having visited there 2 years ago and been very impressed, this was rather a letdown. The food was plentiful, well cooked and served {the staff were brilliant} but neither of our starters or main course had any taste. The sardines only tasted of garlic and the sea bream of nothing. We did not bother with a dessert.

Stayed here overnight in February. We paid a premium for a sea view and our room did have a good view over the gravelly beach to a stormy sea. Breakfast was also lovely, as many other reviewers describe. However while the room was warm and reasonably equipped it was in serious need of updating. For the price we paid I...

We had been given some vouchers, so visited for lunch. Easy free parking on the street outside, but does get busy. Fresh clean decor and friendly welcome. The food is pub grub with a French twist - goes with the boule courts just outside! Service was good, food very tasty, reasonable helpings.

We often go out for a meal to various places and often we come away wishing we hadn't bothered. Tonight, we went to the White Lion Hotel in Aldeburgh for a meal. I must say it was the best meal we have both had for as long as we can remember. We had starters, mains and a dessert, each course...

The White Loin Hotel is perfectly positioned in Aldeburgh by the beach, and in walking distance to the town centre and reasonably close to possibley the very best fish and chip shop in the East coast. The rooms and great, the staff are very accommodating and the food out of this world.

From arriving to departing my wife and I were treated very professionally by a very friendly and courteous staff from reception,restaraunt staff, housekeeping etc. whilst we did not meet any of the backroom staff ie chefs etc we are sure they were also the same. The food was very good and presentation excellent. A bit pricey but well worth it....

Stayed here for a break in February. Great location on the beach, with easy parking, wonderful breakfasts, lovely bar, friendly staff and spotlessly clean throughout. Highly recommended for accommodation though our room,7, was a touch small, and food.

A very pleasant stay...very comfortable hotel. Staff friendly and efficient...very good service. The double room was comfotrable but on the small size along with the very small ensuite bathroom. Not very much room to move around....we did expect a decent size room considering the price ! We ate in the restaurant. A varied menu and we had an excellent meal...very...
