On arrival I was ignored by the lady on reception while she busied herself with a cash box .then she greeted me with "yes!" not the most welcoming greeting I would have expected. sleep was almost impossible as the very small room 114 was unbearably hot and opening the windows resulted in very loud pedestrian and traffic noise. the hotel...

Family trip to Lowestoft for lunch ruined by an uncooked adult cod fillet (twice!) and unfilleted children's cod. Lasagne was great, burger very nice but if you have lunch here and want to eat together, avoid the Cod!

Overall the hotel was good, the location was great, staff friendly and it was clean. All was good, until we went to bed, the curtains were too short, so not dark enough as on the street side of the hotel. Then a buzzing started, it went on and on, we turned up the TV But still we heard the buzzing.... More

Have used the Hatfield over a number of years, but it seems to go downhill every visit. The restaurant is average and a bit over priced. It is the bar that is really bad, apart from the view might as well go to Wetherspoons. Long wait to be served, find your own seat and carry the drinks back yourself, it... More

Staff were attentive, helpful and friendly, allocated car park just across the road (also free - which in my experience is rare for a... More

My wife and I stayed here whilst visiting friends in the area. We had a sea view room which was nice but the standards of the hotel seem to have slipped a little since I last stayed here. The cleanliness was basic with poor lighting and little attention to the little things which make a place special. In breakfast it... More

I visited the Hatfield on a Friday evening (as a non resident) as their bar and restaurant is highly regarded locally. This was around 8pm and I wouldn't of said it was particularly busy but I did count at least eight staff members behind the bar so I presumed they were expecting a busy night. It took at least half... More
