We were looking forward to our visit after reading all the glowing Tripadvisor reviews. When we arrived at the train station in Hastings, my husband had a voicemail waiting saying that our reservation was cancelled due to water damage to our room from the rain. We went to the hotel and were told the same thing. We felt stranded given... More

Dear Shannon, I totally understand your frustration and anger due to what happened with the room. I have checked the room that morning and there was no problem at all, until I came up in the afternoon to put water in the room and found that some water came through the ceiling. I tried to contact you immediately, but there... More

Really lovely boutique B & B. The place is beautiful and very tastefully decorated. The bed was really comfy - my husband had a few allergy issues as something in the bedding must have been feather but that was our fault as we never checked. Staff all very friendly and more than accommodating. Delish breakfast. Convenient location - 5 minute... More

Wonderful Boutique B&B. The Turret room was immaculately furnished, superb John Lewis Harrison mattress, best nights sleep EVER in a B&B! The en suite bathroom was HUGE!! The fridge was conveniently tucked away in a wardrobe, bathrobes, safety deposit box, luxury toiletries, only thing missing was a bottle of water that I could chill in the fridge. Some lovely choice... More

This is a really smashing find! It's one of the nicest hotels I have stayed at in a very long time. I'm only sad that I live locally and can't think that I'll be able to justify staying here very often. It was clean, comfortable, stylish, in a great location (5 minute walk to town so close to the shops,... More

My wife and I had a lovely stay at the Black Rock House. We were welcomed by the staff on arrival and made to feel very welcome. The room was very comfortable and we had a refill of biscotti every day. The location is good and only about 7-10 minutes walk to the seafront at Hastings where we spent a... More

Unfortunately our experience was not as good as expected. It was a stuffy room as one sash window did not open at all but we managed to prop open the other one with our wastepaper bin as it kept falling down until a solution of a door stop was found to prop it open more securely. Also our shower water... More

Everything was first rate, from the post booking email offering advice about restaurants , to the beautifully designed room, the luxury linens and the most delicious of breakfasts. It really is an ideal small boutique B&B in the real sense, not in the put a throw on the bed and call it a boutique sense! I loved everything about it... More

I was very sceptical about Black Rock House before staying there because I wasn't really sure it was possible to cross a seaside B&B with a boutique hotel but I have to say they manage the trick with some style. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful without being intrusive and our whole stay had a distinctly unrushed feel which... More

Good location; very helpful but unobtrusive staff; things happened without you knowing. Excellent breakfasts. Super clean rooms with great facilities. Good parking & help with permits. Very quiet and private. What's not to like?

I stayed here for two nights and it really couldn't have been more charming. Staff were welcoming when we arrived. The quality and decoration throughout made it a real pleasure to spend time in the hotel and our bathroom was excellent. The staff go out of their way to include little touches to make your stay charming, such as a... More
