Located within walking distance of the seafront and Old Town this B&B is in the perfect location for exploring Hastings. The decor is incredible and I have to say it was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! The breakfast menu was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about my stay. Only downside was that the Wi-Fi... More

We spent a fantastic weekend in August at The Old Rectory celebrating my girlfriends birthday. I was looking for a quirky b&b on the south coast and that is exactly what I got! My namesake Luke was brilliant from the outset, changing our dates without even the slightest hint of annoyance in his voice (which, let's be honest, is rare... More

I have just stayed here with my sister for 3 nights and we loved it! The whole place has a New England style feel about it with pale washed paint and floors in the bedrooms and throughout. The bedrooms overlooking the garden are peaceful and comfortable with good linen and piping hot water for my evening bath! The gardens are... More

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
