Stayed here for 2 nights, last time we stayed here was just before the first lockdown, and we were so pleased to see how well Cromer has survived and how the Red Lion has got even better. We had room 6, don't let the word 'room' make you think of a room - it was a superb suite, with a gorgeous sitting room overlooking the sea. Loads of space and worked really well for us as I'm an really early bird, so it was nice to get up and 'potter' without waking the other half. Everything about it was the BEST! Really cosy, even if you sat by the open sitting room window to listen to the sea, and a great view of the staircase stained glass window from the bedroom. And I've not mentioned the food yet ........ I'm actually quite pleased to come home and cut back on the portion sizes! Just amazing and very tasty, I wish I could have eaten more (but I'm pleased I didn't). Veggie linguine with garlic bread was lovely, as was fish & chips on the second night . Husband had the latter 2 nights running but had to ask for a smaller fish. Would have loved to try the desserts which sounded amazing, but no chance of that happening. Breakfast too, well just wow! Tomorrow I'll be back to my toasted crumpet, but I loved the Eggs Royal (?) with the smoked salmon, but couldn't face a full breakfast today before the drive home, so *just* had coffee, juice, Danish, fruit salad and toast. We've had a few hotel breaks this year (catching up on 2020 bookings) but the Red Lion was by far the best, and the best value for money. Everything was spot on, the staff were lovely, the room was very clean and the food excellent. We'll be back. THANK YOU! Show less…
We had a very good dinner at the Red Lion, Reasonable prices and friendly staff. Worth a visit. The pub has a great atmosphere. Comfortable seating and well spaced.The menu has something for everyone. The Pub doesn’t have parking so you need to use the car parks close by.
Had a wonderful three night stay at the Red Lion. The service and friendliness of the staff were top-class, fabulous breakfasts with homemade granola, fruit salad, quality full-cooked and lovely coffee. All produce used is of high quality. Great location on the sea front, lovely bar area. Unfortunately car parking currently not available as being used for a marquee, so be aware that parking adds another £7 a night in local car parks.
£160 is a lot to pay for 1 night in a pub. OK if you get value for that. Car park shut for a tent for drinks. Why? Not Covid related now. Only Earl Grey tea in the room and hardly any milk in the fridge on the landing. And that was off. No lift. Chaotic breakfast with rude reception and eternal wait. Not a lot of competition in Cromer so it does well.
A designated 4* hotel which has replaced its entire car park with a very tired looking marquee which appeared to be very little used. Parking is difficult in the vicinity so a walk to/from hotel - + luggage - may be expected. There is no lift so the elderly/infirm would also find this difficult. A bit of a tussle to get supplies in room replenished each day which was irritating. Previous bar tables and chairs replaced with uncomfortable high stools. All in all not so appealing as previously. Breakfast good.
