We stayed here for one night and wish it had been longer. The place is exquisitely decorated, our room was spacious and calming. The lounge area was the perfect chill out area, the garden beautiful. The service was fantastic for the tea and cake in arrival, the dinner recommendations and the genuine interest in what we had planned. The location... More

From the wonderfully warm welcome to the scrumptious tea and fabulous room I enjoyed every minute of my stay at the Old Rectory. It was the perfect venue for the wedding I attended. Their attention to detail with nothing being too much trouble makes it ideal for either a break away or a wedding. I cannot wait to go back... More

The old rectory is a fabulous place to stay with a warm welcome to make you feel at home. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfasts are amazing. I have stayed here several times now and every time the experience is of a consistently high standard

We got married in the Old Rectory last month. Our advice if you're looking for a wedding venue in East Sussex is to look here first. You need not look any further. You will not find a better wedding organiser or venue manager than Tracey Ann who does everything she can to put you at ease on your big day.... More

The rejuvenated seaside town of Hastings is full of chic surprises and none more so than this beautiful boutique b&b a stone's throw from the arty Old Town and the beaches. The spacious individually designed room my partner and I stayed in was a world away from the cramped bedrooms found in so many modern hotels. It oozed charm and... More

The Old Rectory is a charmingly restored rectory consisting of 8 luxury rooms, tastefully and innovatively decorated and all with their own individual character. Tracey-Anne and Helen provided an excellent and personal service throughout our stay and could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The food was just delicious and the breakfast menu was the best and most varied... More

We had a lovely stay here for one night. From the moment we first entered (when Tracey-Anne gave us tea and cake!), every detail was brilliant. The building is beautiful, the garden is stunning and the location is amazing (right at the end of the High Street with an easy walk to the sea front). The room was comfortable and... More

It's as tricky to add to the praise for this place without sounding repetitive as it is to find a fault with this beautiful hotel. It is very peaceful and in a great location. The breakfast is incredible - lots of healthy options to choose from or you can go for good old fry up but with locally sourced /... More

The Old Rectory is a delightful place to stay, a warm welcome and a relaxed, homely feel. I broke my collarbone a few days before I was due to stay and they could not have been more helpful making sure that I had extra pillows and changing my room to one with a walk in shower. The breakfast is great... More
