Dear susan F, Thank you for such a glowing review! It pleases me to hear you have visited us on a few occasions and have enjoyed the Terrace, along with the views it has to offer and more importantly the food. Thank you for recommending our fish and chips I would certainly agree it is a great dish and extremely popular. I would also have to agree with on the glass screening, it certainly does offers some relief from the elements, particularly on windy days and is a fantastic place to spend an evening. Thank you for all your kind comments I will be sure to pass them on to the rest of the team. It is always lovely to hear that our guests have enjoyed their time with us and fingers crossed the next time you visit the sun is shining and the weather has improved. We hope to see you again soon Kindest Regards Steven Cordory General Manager

Dear biscuit_tin123, Thank you for taking the time to review Best Western The Hatfield Hotel. It is so pleasing to hear you enjoyed your stay at the hotel and experienced our Elizabeth Suite. I am so glad you found the room to be lovely, accompanied by a comfortable bed. I would certainly agree with you the big windows in this room do lend itself to providing amazing sea views. With regards to the squeaky floorboards it is an old building and they do tend to creak from time to time, some might say this adds character to the building, however more importantly I am pleased to hear this did not spoil your stay with us and that you would certainly return to stay again. I am glad you had the opportunity to dine with us at lunch and found the portions to be ample and good value for money with breakfast being equally enjoyable. Thank you for your constructive comments regarding the toaster at breakfast we will certainly investigate into this further as would not want this to impact on other guests in the future. It is always great to hear such positive feedback and it is so satisfying to hear you found the staff to be really helpful, we will be sure to pass your kind comments on to the rest of the team including Nicola who assisted you on reception. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel again soon. Kindest Regards Steven Cordory General Manager

Dear Sharon G, Thank you for your recent review of Best Western The Hatfield Hotel. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and found the hotel to be clean with the staff being friendly and helpful. I am sorry to hear about the hairdryer and I will certainly get our maintenance team to look into this further, if you could be so kind as to message me the room number you stayed in so we can alter this, so as to not affect future guests staying with us, that would be greatly appreciated. I am so pleased to hear reception where also able to assist you by providing further tea and coffee supplies and the team are very happy to do so with all guest amenities when asked for. I am glad you found the room to be of good value, online there is an option for those booking a room only rate to add Full English breakfast for £9.95, however on check in we do offer this at a reduced rate of £7.50 at time of check in and can only apologise if this was offered to you at the time. Regarding the views of the beach from the Terrace I would certainly have to agree with you they are lovely and I personally find this to be the case throughout the year no matter the season or the weather. Your feedback is important to us in order to grow and improve our business and we will be sure to take your comments on board. We hope to welcome you back to the hotel again soon. Kindest Regards Steven Cordory General Manager
