I stayed here on business on a Sunday night. The suite was spacious and the bathroom was ok. The room had a large wall-mounted tv and a nice view of the sea. The food was good and the breakfast was amusingly good. The menu reads "toast with a choice of preservatives" when it should read "preserves"!

Stayed here for 5 weeks while working in Lowestoft. Couldn't as for a better hotel to stay in, food was spot on every night. The rooms are a decent size and clean. Bar area was excellent and the staff are top Couldn't ask for better staff members. They do the hotel justice! 100% will be going back.

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
