My partner and I have just come back from a weekend visit at St Benedics in Hastings (st Leonards on sea). I was looking for somewhere a bit different and boy did I find it. What a fantastic experience. I can only describe it as walking back in time, late Victoria to be more accurate. The time, effort and care... More

When investigating places to stay in Hastings we came across the wonderful website for St Benedict's. Being lovers of Victorian and Morris-style decoration we simply had to visit. We can happily report that it more than lived up to expectations. The decorations are simply amazing, and look totally authentic, which most of them are with a few skilfully executed modern... More

What a surprise. We arrived at 5pm and were invited for tea and cake in the beautiful garden. The rooms are fantastic. I can't imagine what it took to get them that way and what it takes to maintain this astonishing house. My deepest respect. When you have the chance to stay there, take it.

One night here was not long enough...the house is exquisitely furnished with William Morris papers, beautiful art works, real sheets and blankets on the extremely comfortable beds and fine bone china tea cups for early morning tea. Breakfast was delicious and freshly cooked. Our hosts were charming and informative about the area and we would definitely recommend this to anyone... More

Beautiful and ornate house, a one of a kind place to stay - a must for anyone interested in staying in what can only be described as a miniature Victorian stately home. Everything is kept in the period, from the beds to sleep on, to the living room, to the plates and cutlery that you have breakfast on. The toilets,... More

We stayed with Stephen and Paul for 3 nights over May bank holiday. We chose St Benedicts for it's excellent reviews and uniqueness being a Victorian B&B. Well on arrival met the lovely Cat who showed us around and took us to our room. We thought we were walking into a museum beautiful interesting things to look at everywhere. How... More

The photographs do not fully capture how amazing the interior of St Benedict is. My husband and I had wonderful weekend. The owners were away but their housekeeper Catherine couldn't have been more welcoming. Afternoon tea in the drawing room and wonderful breakfasts, and a lovely tour of the house and garden. We were very well looked after and will... More

We had a little idea of what to expect from the website but walking through the door was breathtaking to say the least. Go and enjoy the detail in every room. We stayed on the top floor and although it wasn't en-suite, we had our own bathroom so it was a real pleasure to enjoy our own space. The location... More

I have just enjoyed an exceptionally comfortable and unique night's stay in the idyllic and remarkable St Benedict's Bed & Breakfast in St Leonard's. The decor is truly something to behold and has been carried out by someone with a true artistic flair and knowledge of the period. St Benedict's is not a Victorian- themed hotel, it is going back...
