If you need to stay in the Hastings area, look no further than the Old Rectory. It is tasteful, friendly and spotless. The rooms are decorated beautifully, the bathrooms are stylish with lovely thick white towels, the beds are super-comfortable with top quality bedding and the breakfast is unbeatable. I can think of nothing that I did not enjoy about... More

Have reviewed The Old Rectory before - it has not changed - still perfect. There is absolutely nothing that can be criticised about this wonderful B & B. Wonderful hosts, lovely ambience, fantastic rooms and a great breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble for Tracey-Ann - you really are welcomed as a friend. If you are planning a trip to... More

We were lucky enough to have our wedding at The Old Rectory, Hastings. Throughout the whole wedding planning process Tracey-Anne was efficient, professional and approachable. During the day of our wedding the team worked hard to give us and our guests a day we won't ever forget. We would definitely recommend The Old Rectory to other couples planning their wedding....

Tracey-Anne and Helen are particularly good hosts - attentive but not intrusive. The Old Rectory is but a short stroll through Hastings' atmospheric Old Town from the many bars and restaurants near the front, but far enough out to provide a quiet haven, with a wonderfully warm and welcoming garden on many levels, with expansive views down towards the sea....

This place is amazing Tracey-Anne & her partner Helen are the most perfect hosts although the place was full we were made to feel like we're only ones there & everything & everybody was there for our pleasure & convenience!!!! Breakfast was to die for.& at one point we contemplated squatting in our room as we not want to leave!!!!... More

“From the moment we were greeted on arrival, until we left 6 days later we could not fault the comfort, food, service and the staff at this establishment. Top marks. It is located in Old Hastings and set in a beautiful terraced garden. Breakfasts were superb and although we were there for 6 nights we were able to have something... More

It's always a delight to visit here. The rooms, garden and comfy sitting room are beautifully designed - it has the feel of a country house retreat with the friendliest of hosts. The breakfasts are great. And delicious welcoming tea and cake too!

I am sure you will not find better. 6 rooms. All wonderfiullyand individually designe. Lovely terrace garden. Breakfast superb. They cure their own bacon, make their own sausages, bake their own bread. Try the omelette. And the people who run it and work there are so nice.

I stayed here for one night and very much enjoyed my stay. Great location right by the old town and lovely rooms. The garden was great for a pre dinner drink and the homecooked breakfast was very tasty. Helen was really friendly and helpful with some great recommendations for places to go and eat. We even got a complimentary upgrade... More

This Guest House is fantastic. Perfectly positioned just behind the old Town of Hastings in a quiet road but within walking distance of the Town. The building oozes charm and character and the gardens are beautiful. Having stayed here twice in June the gardens were in full bloom. They really are worth a visit. Tracey- Anne and Helen are great... More
