We have stayed at this hotel now at least four times. We always stay in the Ryan Suite. It is a beautiful room, with a four poster bed. Amazing sea views. The carvery is lovely and reasonable. The staff are all friendly and helpful, and all seem to enjoy working there, and get on well together. There is a gorgeous... More

Visited the area 26th March, had to find somewhere quick, been to the Hatfield before and with the bargain price of £55 for a double room for 1, with breakfast BARGAIN! Classed as a budget room, it had everything I required for the night, clean and comfortable, and a good choice for breakfast. I had a drink in the bar,... More

Had a decent reasonably priced breakfast on the terrace overlooking a calm sea. Unfortunately as a lover of good coffee the experience was spoilt for our party of 3 as the americano was insipid and weak despite coming from a machine that promised a good cuppa. We went to the nearby coconut loft cafe after to get our caffeine fix.

I've been once before to the Hatfield and thought it was worth another visit. Unfortunately the service really let it down this time round. We had to complain to the supervisor about one team member, and her mardy attitude. They were very apologetic. But when it came to the second and third issue we just gave up. My nan who... More

The Hatfield Hotel is well located on the edge of the town of Lowestoft. The rear of the hotel faces the promenade and there is a gorgeous sea view from the restaurant and bar which both lead out to a large glass-screened terrace. For anybody with mobility problems, the steps up to the entrance may prove difficult but it is... More

Five of us visited our local hotel, the Hatfield in Lowestoft yesterday for the carvery. Posters everywhere stated that the carvery was £5.99 Monday to Saturday. On Sundays this rises to £8.99, roughly a 50% increase. Unfortunately this increase could not be justified. The meat selection was dry, the vegetables were also dry and covered with plastic lids, these were... More
