As locals we so want this place to do well, the investment in the terrace lends it a spectacular view, and a very nice vibe. We have always enjoyed out days and evenings here, but the food is not up to the expectations you have when you walk in. It would be fine with the old hotel, but I suppose... More

We stayed here on a rainy September day. The staff are exceptionally friendly. The room was reasonable and clean. The best thing about this hotel is their ground floor bar and restaurant. The food was great and so eye the see views. It's a nice place to sit with a drink, spot boats in the see and watch the sunset.

Had a superb lunch with majestic views of The North Sea. Quality of food and speed of service was very good. Tables were regularly cleaned. Plenty of tables for dinners to eat at. Prices for drinks and food were acceptable

Have not stopped at this Hotel for a good few years mainly due to it being poor in every sense and it being managed by an incompetent idiot which was then passed down to all the other members of staff making them all incompetent. After spending two nights at the Hotel a couple of weeks ago I have to say... More

Stayed in one of the large sea view rooms. The view was amazing! The room was a mismash of dated furniture with some new decoration which didn't really work. That being said, the bed was very comfy, the food surprisingly good and the staff really friendly and attentive. This hotel clearly wants to look after its guests and with a... More

We held our wedding reception at the Hatfield 10 years ago and I wanted to surprise my husband. I contacted the hotel a couple of months before my anniversary to enquire about any packages. They contacted me back and we're able to offer the Elizabeth Suite with champagne and chocs on arrival for my budget. I contacted the hotel half... More

We stayed one night on 7th August had a fabulous double room with a sea view. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We had an evening meal with three other family members and it was first class. Comfortable bed slept like a log and came down to an excellent breakfast. We'll definitely be back.

Quite a few glitches, but the positives far outweigh the negatives. Although this hotel comes up on booking sites when selecting hotel with disabled facilities, the disabled facilities are limited to the restaurant only. This hotel is not suitable for disabled people. There are no disabled rooms, and although there is ramp access to the hotel, the only means of... More
