Decoration, Cleanliness, attention to detail, Service and the Breakfast. Could not drink the water in the room, and the bed sagged in the middle making it quite uncomfortable and very noisy at every movement. (Chopin Room)

The Victotian decor to the rooms & hotel in general. Rooms were very comfortable No evening meal or bar. Could also do with a desk or small table in the room.
Very friendly stay. Affordable luxury with historical interest.
Lovely stay, very welcoming
The owners are really helpful and kind. They do everything they can to make you feel at home. The breakfast is also very good, with a selection of cooked and non-cooked options. Check-out was very early (10:00 to 10:30am). However, we left a bit later (around 10:50) and it wasn't a problem. Since we were leaving Lowestoft only in the evening, we were welcomed in the afternoon for tea :) . Breakfast was also quite early for me for a weekend (7:30 to 9:00).
Supremely comfortable with breakfasts to die for!
The room was very comfortable, as was the bed. amenities were excellent
the qauint and edwardian style of rooms. Impresive breakfast menu, plenty to eat and beautifully cooked which is hard to maintain when cooking on a large scale. It had the impression that it was a "family run" business with the usual nick nacks of family life - photographs etc which made the hotel feel like it was a warm and welcoming home. It had the personal touch which is absent in many hotel chains these days. The windows over the bed got a little draughty duriing the night. However there were radiators and an extra heater supplied which kept the overall room temperture constant. The matress bowed in towards the middle of the bed making it somewhat uncomfortable. However, I am being somewhat critical as the rest of our stay was excellent value of money. Unfortunately, we stayed in the middle of November so our experience of the resort of Lowestoft is marred. For a once and prosperous resort, I felt it had lost some of its finery and the buidlings further down the town looked in desperate need of repair, but this is true of many british seaside towns.
The hosts Ann & Colin made us feel very welcome. They certainly have decorated the place very well and obviously take pleasure in giving customers very good service.
The whole experience was relaxing and enjoyable. Our room, with a view of the sea, was a really nice size and very clean. My husband particularly enjoyed the 'full English' breakfast! The only thing would be more parking space.
