We decided on spur of moment to stay in Lowersoft and as we had previously stayed at the Hatfield booked over the phone an executive sea view room, we arrived and were given our room key, we went up to the room and talk about disappointed the room was so small it felt like a prison cell, and smelt of...

I have stayed here for 5 weeks on a training course and I have loved it! The staff are so friendly and always willing to go that extra mile for the customer. The food is delicious, I have tried almost everything on the menu and never been disappointed, I would really recommend staying over at the Hatfield if you are... More

Be very aware of their fake website and unethical approach towards offering a fair room rate! An absolutely appalling time at the hotel, the staff were rude, inadequate information available and no management available to assist with the issues, absolutely disgraceful. There were several drinks that were unavailable, the atmosphere was awful and the staff rude and uninformitive. We made... More

We stayed here overnight to attend a function elsewhere in the town. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Our sea-view room was on the second floor but we were a bit disappointed to find the the view was through a rather small window which was steamed up between the panes of the double glazing though it was nice to hear...

We stop here for a carvery meal every now and again when we need to attend an early evening meeting in town. The staff are always very professional and attentive, the views wonderful and the food is reasonable and extremely good value. You can also obtain Lacons Legacy at the bar, a real ale treat.

Booked this hotel at last minute and had a very peasant stay. Great location with a nice deck overlooking the sea where you can watch surfers in the morning. Best thing about the hotel is the friendly staff. I forgot to pack a shirt I left in a wardrobe and within minutes of leaving they called me to say I... More

This was a sentimental visit to Lowestoft to recall childhood memories which included the Hatfield Hotel. On arrival we were worried about the appearance of the Hotel and the run down area behind it. Rooms were also on the basic side (although clean) and the view from our room turned out not to be of the sea but of KFC!... More

We had a lovey lunch two days running, the first day we went for burgers which were good quality and had the best chips we have ever eaten. On the second day we had club sandwiches which were triple decked and full of chicken, accompanied by a portion of the chips of course. Also had a cream tea which was... More

My wife and I were looking for a seafront hotel for an overnight stay in Lowestoft and booked the Hatfield as it looked like pretty good value. However, we were somewhat disappointed by the time we left. Although we had a good sea view, the room was quite dated and basic - much of the furniture looked a bit worn,... More

Ive stayed at the hatfield many a time, but this time i feel i need to say something! We had a room (no203) overlooked the sea, this was brilliant, nice big room, but the bed must have been the smallest double ive ever known. If the room was small then maybe i could understand it. Get some bigger beds in.... More
