I treated my 2 daughters (circa 40!) to a childfree night in this utterly charming B&B - boutique hotel more like. I stayed in Tackleway room & daughters in large All saints suite which they loved but all rooms are lovely & the terraced garden is sublime. The location is perfect, within a few minutes walk of old town. The... More

I stayed at the Old Rectory for 2 nights for my little sister's wedding. After a 7 hour car journey arriving at the hotel was like coming home. I have never felt so relaxed in a hotel before. The 2 ladies who run it are wonderful. Each room is beautifully designed, comfortable and spacious. The gardens are a joy. Food... More

5 stars are not enough for this beautiful and sublimely run hotel! We had our wedding here last weekend, Tracey-Anne helped us plan everything to the last detail and her wonderful staff made our dream become reality. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was fantastic, service outstanding and whole experience amazing! We stayed in the Crown suite but all... More

At the risk of sounding repetitive, I can only concur with previous reviewers. Little things make this venue at the top of its game. To be welcomed with a chilled glass of wine after being in the car for many hours is one of them. The property itself is in the quaint old town area of Hastings and the building... More

It's difficult to find adequate superlatives to describe this magnificent B&B. A daily rate of £150 for a B&B may appear on the slightly more expensive side but we thought more than once during our two night stay what we would have to pay for such quality accommodation in a hotel? And not many 5 star hotels could not even... More

There's really nothing I can add to all the glowing reviews you can see here of this lovely place. What I can say is that they are all true and that this is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in anywhere. Tracy Anne and Helen have made their B&B an example to hoteliers everywhere and they have... More

We spent two lovely nights in early June at The Old Rectory and felt totally immersed in English luxury. Tracey Anne and Helen were such amazing hosts, not to mention their precious Boston Terrier, Pachino, who we fell in love with! Our room was Ebenezer. If you like to people watch, you will love this or Crown. The bay windows... More

I booked late but managed to get a room in this very popular b and b in Hasting. It's located in the Old Town, definitely the nicest part of Hastings, and is run by the winning team of Helen and Tracy Ann. You couldn't ask for a more personable and friendly welcoming. They were so helpful and keen to check... More

My first ever visit to Hastings and i was very lucky to have stayed in this wonderful hotel situated in the old town. Our delightful hosts Helen and Tracey-Ann made both me and my partner very welcome, they were both helpful and informative on local sights and good venues to eat. The hotel itself is beautiful, large airy rooms and... More

Stayed here for two nights over the Whitsun Bank Holiday. Lovely place, really pretty rooms and beautiful garden in a quiet spot at the top of Hastings Old Town. Tracey and Helen the managers were lovely - really welcoming. Breakfast was faultless.
