Hunstanton is a traditional family resort on the Norfolk coastline

If you are looking for a rewarding break in this charming part of England, The Golden Lion is the perfect choice.

The Golden Lion is a small hotel but a true icon of the town.  It is the oldest building in what was originally called “New Hunstanton,” as settlements in Hunstanton actually date back to prehistoric times. Built in 1846, it occupies an unrivalled position and from the hotel you can enjoy panoramic views over the pleasant green and sandy beach to the sea beyond. 

The Golden Lion features a popular public bar, in summer you can sit out in our lovely gardens overlooking the seafront, as you sip a glass of wine or a pint of local ale.

The Golden Lion has a great restaurant where you can enjoy the sea views as you dine, and a modern function room which is perfect for special occasions.

You’re assured a relaxing stay on the Norfolk Coast, just ten minutes from the Sandringham Royal Estate and within easy reach of some of the county’s most interesting walking trails and famous cliffs. 

Premier Rooms are popular at The Golden Lion, with the option to upgrade to a sumptuous four-poster bed, large flat-screen TV and a spacious en-suite bathroom.
