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

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
