Had a brilliant stay, as always, and many thanks for your hospitality. Breakfast was fantastic as usual, and the room easily accommodated a family of 4. Everything perfectly clean, and always plenty to watch in the street. Good to see George too!

This lovely B&B is in the perfect location in the heart of the Old Town. It is very comfortable, and the owners are delightful: friendly and helpful without being at all intrusive. Breakfast was also excellent. Sadly I didn't see nearly enough of George who is extremely handsome and possibly the friendliest cat I've ever met!

If you want class and hospitality, comfort and something quite unique right in the coolest part of Hastings - the old town, look no further. Our hosts were exceptional and the breakfast was perfectly cooked. The red bedroom was exquisite with its own bathroom, the bath with feet and a shower that has so much pressure was invigorating.

My wife and I spent a couple of days over Easter in Hastings. We booked Gallery 53 because my wife had stayed there before and rated it highly. I'm not a big one for B&B, but this experience has helped change my mind. As the name would suggest, the accommodation is set above a (private) gallery (www.gallery53.co.uk) and the room... More

We spent two nights in the 'red room'. The room was beautifully furnished, and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was luxurious. We had breakfast in our room, with a good choice of breakfast types. The porridge was excellent. The B and B is very well located in the Old Town of Hastings, just a couple of minutes from the seafront. The... More

We stayed 2 nights in the front room with the bay window, rented out by a very lovely couple. First of all, this is a large room in their place of residence, but feels very separate and private. Bathroom has a large tub and a separate shower stall. There are several breakfast choices, and they are delivered to your room.... More

situated in the heart of Hastings old town, this B&B is ideally situated next to the many antiques and collect-able shops. Several excellent restaurants and pubs two minutes walk away. The accommodation is of the highest standard. We stayed in the room with the bay window overlooking The High Street. A very large room with a very comfortable bed, TV... More

Just had a lovely relaxing night at Gallery 53. Very comfortable bed in an amazing room topped off with a delicious breakfast this morning sat looking over Hastings Old Town. Perfect for couples and lovely hosts. Will definitely be returning!
