    Superb

    The location of the hotel is exceptional for the beach and shopping. The carvery was outstanding and very good value for money. The staff were all very friendly. Will be looking to book again in the near future.

    Apart from the Hotel undergoing refurbishmen there has been nothing negative that we can comment on.

    Superb

    There were no negatives about the hotel or staff, who were all very pleasent, polite, and helpful. The view of, and access to the sea and beaches without road traffic made our stay even more enjoyable.All meals were well presented and well cooked. Now we've found this hotel we will definately stay again.

    The wife thought the receiption carpet was unwelcoming.

    Hotel Hatfield was a great hotel and would be staying there again as location was ten in a very good location for beach and shops.The hotel was very clean and food was very good .

    The only thing that we can complain about was the price of drinks was a bit off putting as for the beer price was about 20p up on pub prices and I would like to Know why hotels and holiday camps charge these high prices.

    Exceptional

    Sea view rooms have an excellent view of beach used by surfers (in windy weather). No traffic on sea side of hotel. Mattress comfortable, towels fluffy. Private car park opposite is valuable because of limited on street parking.

    Even though there is a lift, there are still half a dozen stairs to negotiate. Minor problem with window was poorly dealt with (the "repair" made it worse!).

    Fabulous

    My daughter has returned from Florida to live in Lowestoft and I wanted to spend some time with her and the Hatfield is very convenient and as we have stayed there before we were happy to return. It is also very near the shopping centre and all amenities. The beach is stunning and with good weather as good as going abroad only with less hassle.

    as above

    Exceptional

    Having a sea view room is just great, the Hotel is near everything. Staff very friendly, esp. The young man who was so helpful. I recommend very much.

    Not modern, not a very important issue for me tho!

    Excellent quality food in the restaurant

    Room a little small, asked for a change but they were fully booked. They are refurbishing though so maybe the room will be changed.

    Exceptional

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The position of the Hatfield was perfect.Hotel staff friendly and obliging. Our room could have done with a little updating but was clean and comfy. We ate far too much of the delicious food and wouldn,t hesitate to stay there again if we were in East Anglia.

    Food was very good and room was clean

    Our bedroom was right next to a nightclub with loud music police cars and people fighting until 4.00 am in the morning so we got no sleep. We left the hotel a day early because of it, The room was not fit for purpose because of the noise. ..

    I booked this hotel on the premise from another travellers comments that the hotel has undergone a full renovation, unfortunately this information proved to be incorrect, the hotel is under renovation but is being done as and when they have time, so if you should recieve a renovated room all well and good but if you should stay in one of the older rooms be prepared for a shower with no pressure, a very uncomfortable bed and tatty and old decor from the 1960 s most likely!, great location but avoid at all costs if they offer you an old room.

    Superb

    Late booking,given suite on arrival,room 212,huge, 4 poster bed with all the trimmings, vintage, this room not yet upgraded but we loved it. Bathroom vintage fittings with matching tiles and sanitary ware. Does need upgrading (painting etc) but it is almost modern with it's flower wallpaper and matching swags.Hotel staff very friendly and helpful as was everyone in Lowestoft. Comfy chairs for relaxing. Great location just across promenade from beach and short walk into town Breakfast excellant with range of continental,full english,kippers, etc. Took all our meals in hotel with great view over sea from restaurant and great value

    Bed was as hard as nails

    Exceptional

    Everyone was friendly and helpful. The hotel was in an ideal location for all the amenities and sight-seeing in the area. Our room was very comfortable and clean as were other parts of the hotel. Although refurbishment was taking place, in no way did this detract from the experience as all effort was made to keep any disruption to an absolute minimum. Free parking was a bonus. The menu in the restaurant was varied- and the sweets were free! In all excellent value for money!

    Our room hadn't been updated/renovated so a little 'worn' and TV only had 4 channels !!
