A home from home in Hastings. One of the best b an b's in the country. Functional, comfortable room with great character Breakfast made with locally sourced, real quality ingredients. My only preference would be for an upgraded mattress.

My sister held her wedding at The Old Rectory, on the last weekend of August 2014. It is a magical place, stunning decor, a beautiful environment, full of welcoming and warm staff. I will definitely go back again and would recommend that this be your only place to stay whilst in Hastings. The wedding was marvellous and magical, a weekend... More

I've stayed at The Old Rectory twice this year and will always come back when in Hastings. The second time was for a wedding and it was an amazing place to celebrate. Beautiful rooms and garden, the food is delicious, love the breakfast and everyone is very welcoming and it's just a 2 min walk from the water. Perfect, thanks... More

This is one of my favourite places to stay in Britain. It is beautifully and imaginatively decorated, comfortable, spotlessly clean, friendly and professionally run. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, there is a huge range of choice for breakfast, the gardens are extensive and well cared for and, in short, staying there is an experience. Based on my...

This really is a gem of a B and B - not cheap but packed with charm and comfort. From the moment of our arrival to departure we were made to feel entirely at home. Furnishing and decor throughout are tasteful and of high quality. The walled garden is charming and offers a great space for sitting outside. Our bedroom... More

Stayed for the weekend for an amazing wedding. The venue was top draw. The staff in both the day and night were attentive and went above and beyond to make sure the day was perfect. The food and service was quality and I would definitely come back, even if its just for a visit.

Stayed for 2 nights in the Cobourg room overlooking the garden. Fabulous place to stay and lived up to the expectations of previous reviews and true to the website. Truly a boutique B+B experience. Loved the quirky interior design and decor. Nice finishing touches in the rooms, such as the lovely smelling toiletries in the bathroom and the ground coffee... More
