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

This is a long overdue review! We held our wedding at the Old Rectory last Juy, it was the most perfect day thanks to Tracey-Anne and the team who ensured that the whole day went smoothly. The house is a beautiful venue and the gardens were a stunning backdrop to the wedding ceremony. We cannot thank them enough for creating... More

Stayed here one night during last half term. Booked two rooms, both of them were utterly superb; elegant bathrooms, huge shower, homemade biscuits, beautiful bed linen, really comfy bed and glorious periods windows that filled the spacious rooms with light and views of a lovely english rectory garden. The welcome we received was the best ever. Dropped my son at... More

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
