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.

Is there a lift and a single room with a walk in shower?
Yes there is a lift, but I am not sure about a single room, I am sure you can have single occupancy of a double/twin room and I expect the rate would be adjusted but I don't know that for sure.
