#3 of 4 hotels in Aldeburgh
Certificate of Excellence
The White Lion Hotel is situated close to the beachfront in Aldeburgh, a stunning Suffolk seaside town renowned for its close association with culture, the Arts and a growing number of festivals. The relaxed setting of this much loved Suffolk hotel offers peace and relaxation in stylish and cosseting surrounding, ideal for a short break in Suffolk. Our hotel accommodation is cosy and relaxing, with some rooms offering sea views across the fish huts on the shingle beach. The vibrant setting of our brasserie lends itself perfectly to morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and all day Sunday lunches or for the more adventurous, why not dine in Sea Spice choosing from an authentic Indian menu. Both our Head Chefs are passionate about their imaginative menus using the abundance of fresh, local seasonal produce so readily available around Aldeburgh and the Suffolk coast.

Two night stay and ate in restaurant on both nights. Food was well presented, good quality and reasonably priced. Staff went out their way to ensure the disabled member of our party was seated easily and without any fuss. All staff we came in contact with were friendly and

I love Aldeburgh, and even though this was a business trip, was really pleased finally to stay at the Lion having found it fully booked on two previous occasions. It's an old building, but it's well looked after and it would be a shame if anyone over-modernised the interior
