Stayed at Black Rock House over Easter. The place is amazing and the attention to detail is incredible. We even got a Easter egg as present in our Room. The Room was spacious with lovely view to the sea side. Water was waiting in the room for us and a bottle of wine as our anniversary gift. The room had... More

Lovely bed and breakfast. Yuliya was on hand to greet us with tea and cake. We had a sea view room which was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There was a good range of tea and coffee in the room with lovely biscotti to accompany. Breakfast was delicious and filling, with the best apple juice I've had in a long... More

Before arriving we were sent a helpful email with a list of good restaurants The house is substantial with a lovely entrance with steps up. We were greeted personally with a smile by Yuliya and taken into a library room and offered a drink. The Yuliya showed us... More

We have just returned from a lovely three night stay at the Black Rock guest house. The house was immaculately decorated, clean and the bedroom and ensuite bathroom were just lovely. Everything you could possibly need was in the room. The toiletries in the bathroom added that extra touch of luxury. The breakfasts were delicious and the bread used for... More

We stayed for one night in the Westview Suite. The suite was surprising spacious and wonderfully decorated. The bathroom was bright, clean and full of character. The bedroom was lovely, with gorgeous Egyptian cotton bedding and excellent tea and coffee facilities. The single bedroom at the end of the corridor was a very sweet, although we didn’t need this, it’s... More

A spur of the moment trip to Hastings, we picked this B&B because of all the good reviews on here and we weren't disappointed. It's very tastefully decorated and our room was stylish and comfortable. It's perfect for the train station, a 10 minute walk (up a very steep hill) but a little further from the old town which is... More

Thank you very much for such a nice review! I wish we could move the guesthouse a little closer to the sea and not have to do the walk up the hill myself :o) However, glad to hear it didn't interfere with you enjoying your stay with us. More

Black Rock Hotel is 5 minutes walk up a fairly steep hill from Hastings city centre. Inside is fresh, spotless and there are a wealth of neat features where obvious care and consideration have been lavished on every detail. The choices of breakfast go well beyond the standard "Full English" and were tasty and attractively presented.

We stayed here for three nights on September 1 and it was lovely. Yulyia, the owner, was there to greet us and made us feel very welcomed with afternoon tea and cake in the comfortable, tastefully-decorated living room. Our turret room (at the front of the house, on a quiet, tree-lined street) had a spacious ensuite bathroom with good-quality items... More

This is a lovely guest house. Our room was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. In the bathroom everything was sparkling, the towels were large and fluffy and there is also a refrigerator and safe. There is a great choice for breakfast. A very good selection of fresh fruit, cereals and cooked. The smoked haddock with poached eggs are particularly good.... More
