Discover Hunstanton – A Traditional Resort on the Beautiful Norfolk Coast 

If you’re looking for a rewarding hotel stay on the stunning coast of Norfolk, The Golden Lion Hotel 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, the hotel occupies an unrivalled position, and from it you can enjoy panoramic views over the pleasant green and sandy beach to the sea beyond. 

The Golden Lion features a lovely, welcoming bar, ideal for relaxing with a drink in hand. 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. With a fantastic restaurant offering delicious home-cooked food and blissful sea views, The Golden Lion is the ideal place to celebrate a special occasion. The hotel also offers a spacious function room – ideal for weddings and corporate events.

You’re assured a relaxing stay on the Norfolk Coast, just 10 minutes from the Sandringham Royal Estate and within easy reach of some of the county’s most interesting walking trails and famous cliffs. The town also boasts a huge array of nearby attractions, from the Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary to Houghton Hall, Peckover House and the majestic Grimsthorpe Castle.

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