Hotel is clean, staff are really nice and helpful. Food is good including the carvery but be careful as carvery vegetables can dry up if they are left under the hot plate for too long. There is currently work on the sea defences underway which can be noisy, Hardly the fault of the hotel. Strongly recommended

We visited on the 20th August for an impromptu birthday lunch. Service was poor, very slow, disinterested staff. the girls were more intent on talking about other things, rather than serving us. Table was sticky, decor was very tired and I felt as though I had made a poor choice even before the food arrived. We all had a starter... More

Called here for afternoon tea this week, the scones were lovely, service very slow though, very nice terrace overlooking the sea but staff very thin on the ground and a lot of the tables had not been cleared from lunch - hence the very large and quite scary seagulls which frequent this area were having a field day finishing off...

My husband and I decided to stop on our walk to have lunch at the Hatfield. It was a hot sunny day and never having eaten there before decided we would try it. We were really pleased with the service and the food was great. We stayed about two hours in total and had an excellent experience.

We were dubious about staying at this hotel as we had booked before reading some of the reviews but I have to say we had a lovely break. The room was clean and the bathroom seemed to have been recently upgraded and was spotless. We had a room on the sea front but the view was spoilt somewhat with the... More

Another great stay at the Hatfield, this time we had the Elizabeth Suite which is a stunning room! Breakfast was great and the addition of Danish Pastries was a hit with the kids. We had an amusing meal in the restaurant, there is a new waiter (i think) and he was really struggling with some dessert orders, he was Spanish... More

Stayed here for one night for a family event where we had a private room for an evening meal. I can't fault the hotel with regards to food - not one complaint with a group of 15 is pretty damn good! The room was set up beautifully and the staff were ever so helpful, friendly and polite - I hope... More

We stayed here due to price and convenience of distance to function that we were attending. Stayed in one of the sea view suites. The room itself although clean enough needs a major update! The curtains were lacking hooks so when closed would just hang down. The bathroom was like a step back in time with floral patterns on the... More
