Spent a night at the Winelodge. The hotel itself is well situated just outside the town and near to the beach and promenade.
It is really well specified, with a very modern look and feel. The receptionist was friendly and welcoming. The room was small in size - this was an Executive Room - but very well furnished, modern, smart, comfortable and clean. A similar room in many other areas would have cost twice the price.
The bar area was small but again well furnished, with a great selection of drinks. We ate in the restaurant - I suspect there aren't many other places like this in the town! - and the food and wine was reasonably priced and service was very good - the steak in particular was superb.
The rates are reasonable and included a very good breakfast - the only downside was the incredibly slow and haphazard service - almost 30 minutes for a cooked breakfast is a bit excessive (even if it was obviously cooked fresh to order!).
Overall a good place to stay and explore the Suffolk coast and whilst Lowestoft is not as picturesque, it makes a great place to see other areas of the coastline.
