The Sea Spirit is set in one of the large Victoria semidetached properties which abound in the St. Leonards area of Hastings. The owner was very welcoming on arrival and friendly throughout our stay. The guest house has large common areas, and a pleasant garden, which would be nice in the summer and for longer stays. it also looked as... More

I had a lovely quiet room away from the bustle of the city. It was very comfortable and spacious and spotlessly clean. Lots of nice little extras in the room like cotton wool, tissues and herbal teas which were much appreciated. The very kind hosts had taken me in rather late at night as I'd booked into an unpleasant noisy... More

Can't fault the welcome or the cleanleness of this guest house but be aware it's a stroll to get to any where on a night time,also found the breakfast to be on the average side .id say a place to stay for no more than a night if your using it just as a stop over point.

Sea Spirit good location with ample parking available on the road outside or if you are fortunate on the owners forcourt which will take 2 cars. Best value for money are twin rooms without bathroom, as facilities are immediately opposite and large, each room has a private bathroom which is just a matter of going across a small corridor.

We stayed here for a long weekend (3 nights) in July, we regularly go to Hastings visit friends and this is by far the best place we have stayed so far. The Sea Spirit Guesthouse is located a few minutes drive, or 10-15 mins from the seafront in a nice area of Hatings, surrounded by lots of lovely Victorian houses.... More

Lovely place. Hosts very helpful when we arrived early and our two rooms were perfect for our family of four. Beautiful back garden and good breakfast with friendly staff. Only a shame we couldn't stay longer!

Found this little guest house at the last minute using trip advisor. Another find! Although a little way from the front it is situated on a reasonably quiet road with free roadside parking! The walk down to the sea is not the most pleasant if you walk down London Road (which is a bit run down) but if you can... More

Sea Spirit Guesthouse is one of those places you stay that you will always remember. The room was first class; it was so spotless, I thought it had just been renovated and the mattress was incredibly comfortable (I wish my own bed was as good). There is a wonderful garden filled with flowers at the back, in which you can... More

If you are looking for a friendly, welcoming and very comfortable relaxed place to stay in St Leonards/Hastings for a few days this is the place to be! Lorraine and Tony are really welcoming, flexible and kind and really good cooks. We can heartily recommend the cooked breakfast in the morning especially the veggie sausages, fresh coffee and poached eggs.... More

I was on the internet a few weeks ago looking for accommodation in Hastings. I didn't realize the time frame covered "Half Term Hols" in Britain's schools, thus many visitors were planning a trip to the southern coast of England. By chance, I happened upon Sea Spirit Guesthouse. A room for two includes a delicious breakfast cooked by Tony. He... More
