The Lord Kitchener Memorial Holiday Centre http://www.lordkitchenersmemorialholidaycentre.co.uk is a unique Suffolk charity overlooking the sea in South Lowestoft, offering hotel style holiday accommodation to ex-service men and woman, their spouses or partners, non service widows and widowers of ex service men and women.
The Hotel is open from April through to October and offers accommodation consisting of ten twin-bedded rooms with en-suite bathrooms two of which have walk-in showers. The remainder have all the usual bathroom facilities with an over-bath shower and all the rooms are on the first or second floor. There are two television lounges and one quieter reading lounge which has a small library. A compact lift serves the ground, first and second floors and it will accept a folded wheelchair but it is too narrow for a wheelchair in use.
There are several steps up to the front door of the building and also some up to the dining room. Guests should be reasonably mobile and able to cope with a few steps but there is ramped access at the rear of the building. Two mobility scooters are available to hire and a folding wheelchair is available free of charge but all must be pre-booked.
Half board is provided with a full English breakfast and a three course evening meal in our air-conditioned dining room. There are tea and coffee facilities in all rooms and free WiFi.
