I usually stay here on business, but this week I was joined by my wife and daughter. We had a great time and it was made all the better because we stayed in the Old Rectory. As usual, the room was perfect. We stayed in the All Saints suite which comprises of two self contained double rooms, a bathroom and... More

Just returned from a two night stay with my mum to celebrate her birthday. The Old Rectory is the perfect retreat . From the moment we arrived it was clear that this hotel was a cut above the rest . The owners and manager Tracey Ann have thought of everything to ensure you have a relaxing stay. Over the years,... More

The Old Rectory B&B was a fantastic find in Hastings Old town, where we were met with a hugely warm welcome. The house is beautifully designed and decorated and feels very homely. The rooms are gorgeous and very comfortable. We sat by the roaring open fire in the lounge, which was perfect for a cold January evening. There is also... More

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay over New Year with my partner and close friends. The stay began with a warm welcome. A roaring real fire, an honesty bar and friends awaited us ….what more could you want on the last day of the year? The staff were attentive, laid back, friendly and helpful bringing up to the...

I and some friends stayed at The Old Rectory for the New a Year. The hotel is an excellent venue in which to relax with friends. The staff are excellent and cater extremely well to individual needs including making a later start and end time for breakfast on New Year's morning to help both staff and guests to accommodate the...

We were given a very friendly welcome when we arrived and this approach was to carry on for the whole of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was at the top of the house and warm and comfortable. The decor was of a high standard throughout with great attention to detail. The Old Rectory is close to... More

I recently spent two nights at The Old Rectory while on a retreat in Hastings and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Service was hospitable without being overbearing, the rooms, lounge and garden were lovely and harmoniously laid out and the breakfast menu well conceived and served. Little extras from a DVD library to organic shampoo and bath... More

We held our Wedding here on 11th Nov 2014 and from our first visit to the day of the wedding we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Tracey-Anne was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The venue is amazing, the rooms all have their own character and the food is second to none. The atmosphere is very... More

A stunning B & B - we couldn't have been made more welcome. Beautiful decor and wonderful ambience. You mustn't miss breakfast under ANY circumstances: delicious home-smoked meats cooked to perfection. We'll definitely be returning to be looked after by Lionel and his team.

We chose The Old Rectory for our wedding venue. The decor is beautiful as is the garden. We were lucky enough to get married in the garden. The staff were efficient and very accommodating and the food was delicious. All of the rooms are individually and lovingly decorated. It was the perfect setting for our wedding. Can't wait to visit... More
