Our stay at the Hatfield Best Western Hotel Lowestoft Suffolk on the 21st of July 2020..
Our stay in Lowestoft Suffolk.
My son, and I, drove up to Lowestoft on Tuesday the 21st of July. I had business to do there and I took my Son along for the trip. Because of it being a long day, what with the drive from Dorset and completing my business, I decided that it would be best to stay in an Hotel for the night. We stayed in the Best western Hotel Hatfield. we, actually, stayed at The lodge, which is across the road from the main Hotel. This was because we wanted a Twin room and there are none in the main Hotel. Well, I have stayed there before, in the main Hotel, but never in The Lodge, so i didn't know what to expect.But WHAT a pleasant surprise. The Room, with the two single Bed's in, was very spacious and the Bed's were very comfortable. And the Room was very clean and tidy. The bathroom was also very clean, and tidy, and the Shower was just right. after such a long journey we both had showers and dressed for our evening Meal, which was across at the main Hotel Restaurant. That's when it went a bit wrong, I'm afraid.We both had starters, a Prawn Cocktail each ,which were generous portions and VERY nice. For our main course: my Son ordered Hunters Chicken and I ordered Battered Cod. Mine was delicious, and a generous size, about the best Fish that I have had for a very long time I MUST say. And I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. But my son couldn't eat His as He was put off by how it was piled up and he didn't like the taste of it. So, he told the Waitress and She knocked it off the bill and provided Him with a drink courtesy of the Hotel and expressed Her apologies to my Son for the meal not being up to the standard that He expected. That was the ONLY blot on our stay at The Best Western Hotel Hatfield. Because everything else was superb. The Hotel has a nice Bar and ,next morning, when we had Breakfast, we were served in a very friendly manner and the Breakfast was lovely. This was the first time, since Lock down, that I have travelled anywhere, let alone to stay in an Hotel and dine in their Restaurant, but it was, generally, a very nice experience and I cant wait to go somewhere else soon.I can strongly recommend that if you are intending to travel, and stay, in Lowestoft, that you stay at The Hatfield Best Western Hotel. less
