Very welcoming hotel with decent staff, comfortable rooms, and some nice touches (particularly the bloody marys at breakfast and reserved and free parking). We were upgraded to a sea view room on arrival, which although small was well appointed, and afforded us a lovely view (and the sights and crashing sounds of the storm surge which arrived on the Friday...

We stayed at the Red Lion & also had an evening meal. The room was lovely with a great sea view. However the first night we experienced a lot of noise from the room above (furniture moving/draws opening & closing), until quite late into the night. The bar meal the following evening was very expensive for the quality of food...

Lovely ambience. Could have stayed in there all evening. First evening we were in there, there was a raging fire. Lovely. Second evening it wasn't lit but we had dinner there. My husband had the sea food platter which he enjoyed immensely. I had the burger which was a little on the dry side. But I lived my time there....

Made a spur of the moment decision to stay at the Red Lion in Cromer to guarantee a parking space, in order to watch/photograph the New Year Eve firework display which had earlier been postponed on 31st December. Turned out to be an excellent decision in the end. The car park was clearly laid out with reservation bollards for each...

I stayed for an evening in December and loved staying here. Rooms were lovely, even had fresh milk for guests to have in their room. Staff were also very friendly. We had dinner which was also lovely and also couldn't fault the breakfast - they even had a Bloody Mary making station for those who needed it - although we...

Extremely pleasant place with a very good vibe. Spacious bright room with a high ceiling and good views. Located right near the water and the town center. Breakfast was superb and of very high quality. Morning vodka was available at breakfast, which we found amusing, and have certainly never seen elsewhere. Will definitely be back.

We were doing a 25 mile sponsored walk for Local Charity - Super Sight Hounds - and stopped over here.

We are regular visitors to Cromer - and have enjoyed many meals in this pub thru the years; this - along with a truly memorable New Year 2012/13 break at The Red Lion gave us confidence to book again. Our NYE evening meal did not live up to expectation - we were a party of 6 and two of our...
