If somebody had a good business head this Hotel would make a fortune. The staff are A1 but the decor seriously needs sorting out. 3star is being kind. There is nothing terribly wrong it just needs to be properly cleaned & decorated. Perhaps also replace the bedding. The whites were not ! Having said that our room was spacious &... More

The Hatfield is absolutely fantastic. The food is gorgeous no matter what you choose. The presentation is great. All the staff are polite, cheerful and always happy to help. The restaurant and the terrace are a pleasure to dine in, you can look across the road at the sea and imagine you are anywhere in the world!!! I would recommend... More

Whilst stopping in the area we made two visits to Lowestoft -once with friends and then just we two. On each occasion we called into the Hatfield for lunch. First we enjoyed our meal outside in the sunshine on the terrace when we had to have fish and chips -these were very good - we then moved into 'easy chairs'... More

I recently visited Lowestoft to meet up with family I hadn't seen in sometime, on the first day my family took me to The Hatfield Hotel for lunch I must say I was very impressed by the staff/management who are working here, very helpful and very well presented. The general manager seemed very helpful and seemed to look after his... More

A comfy room and friendly staff spoiled by an inadequate breakfast. A full English breakfast consists of; 1 rasher, 1 small sausage, 1 hash brown, an egg, a slice of black pudding, half a mushroom and half a tomato!

In May we stayed at the Hatfield for two nights as a birthday treat. We had a big double room with an absolutely fabulous sea view so much so we were reluctant to close the blinds when we went to sleep!!! I woke at 5am to see the amazing sunrise and was impressed to see two people swimming in the... More

Lovely & clean with a sea view, TV worked fine.Went for breakfast, no water, loose sugar for cereals or glasses for juice, we had to ask for those! It came,looked like a smiley face with all the empty spaces,... More

Popped in for a bit of late lunch and experienced the worst service ever! Only one guy behind the bar who had two speeds - stop and slow. No other staff in sight anywhere. I waited 15 minutes to be served and would still be standing there if a waiter hadn't come past. After he had told me he wasn't... More

To start with there was no parking and the receptionist advised me to go down the road where there was a paying park. I had specifically asked about parking before making the journey. The hotel room was the Ryan Suite at £95 per night. The main door had the internal lock missing and the door framework was all split around... More

James R, General Manager at The Hatfield Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments I would however like to make some things clear. We do have restricted parking at the hotel which is rarely full, however, on this occasion it was. The receptionist was attempting to solve this issue by informing you of alternative parking in the area. As far as the locks are concerned. The internal lock has... More
