2.23km from Cypress AutoservicesHad a long weekend staying at Hotel Katherine to explore Suffolk. From the moment that we walked in the door, absolutely everything was superb. COVID-19 measures are very good, our reception was warm & welcoming & check in simple & speedy. We had a first floor bay window room on the front which was well equipped and furnished, and very spacious. Bed was very comfortable and unusually for me when staying away, I slept well. Plenty of well placed plug sockets. During the day, as you would expect, being on the front there was some traffic noise but became very quiet at night so no disturbance from that. Well situated in Lowestoft with a small park across the road so views out to sea through the trees. Parking is on street but we never had any problems finding a space pretty close to/outside of the hotel. It is situated on a one way street but again, not a problem as “the loop” is only a very small one and being one way provides the parking capacity. One way streets seemed pretty common across town. COVID-19 Procedures prevent routine “in room” servicing during stays but our hosts made sure mid stay that we had sufficient supplies. The included breakfast is continental but substantial & more that sufficient to set one up for the day with a mixture of cereals, toast, fresh fruits, pasties & pancakes but cooked breakfast options are available at additional cost for those wanting one. Unusually for a bed & breakfast location, Hotel Katherine offers a guest lounge with an honesty bar carrying a wide range of spirits, beer, soft drinks and wines at very reasonable prices. Another nice touch which differentiates from many similar hotels. All in all, we felt that Hotel Katherine offered tremendous value - if anything, possibly a little underpriced - we’ve certainly paid more per night for comparable/less highly rated packages but in saying that, I have no particular knowledge of local competition so it may be that the charge is competitive against that. The hotel, and town, are well placed for wide exploration of both Suffolk and Norfolk. Weather wasn’t too good over our weekend, so no long beach walks, but we got to Southwold in a little over half an hour; Aldeburgh in under an hour and even one location close to Norwich in about the same.
