Passed through Cromer on an East Anglian tour and stopped off at The Red Lion. We arrived mid-afternoon and the Reception desk appeared deserted. We later noticed the adjacent bell, which to be fair was answered immediately by someone sitting behind the closed hatch. This seems a bit ridiculous. If you are work inside the screened hatch why not open... More

We were visiting Cromer with elderly parents and one drawback is that the hotel has no lift. Rooms were on the second floor and so access is difficult if you have mobility problems, The rooms were of good size, clean and well appointed with a comfortable bed. Free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee and bottled water. Breakfast was excellent although service... More

Stopped at this hotel for 2 nights, the staff was very friendly and welcoming the room we had was on second floor and was very spacious and clean, there are rooms with a sea view. The food was excellent but a touch pricey. A good choice of real ales in bar. The only downside was no air conditioning in rooms... More

We spent two nights here and were very happy with the room (quiet, clean, complementary spring water) and the food (Eggs Benedict at breakfast to die for!) Great location right on the front and guest parking which is very welcome. Would definitely recommend the Red Lion (oh, and kudos to the cheerful and friendly bargirl who knows her gins...)

The Red lion is deceptive - approach from the car park it doesn't look much, especially if you haven't been to Cromer before. However round the front it has magnificent sea views, a great bar and a number of excellent rooms. We stayed as a family in mid- early July and had a great break. The rooms are good, unfortunately...
