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...

Ive stayed at a lot of B&B's in my time but this bespoke B&B is in a class of its own. The xmas shrine led us like a star in the night sky in early jan. On arrival Stephen met us at the entrance and Both of us were overwhelmed by the quality, design and atmosphere of their home. The... More

The nice surprise for me was that the decor was in part Victorian but also many hints of Baroque Catholic religious interiors...so really up my street. Time travel with some divine fervour thrown in! We stayed for New Year's Eve and whilst Hastings was a great place to go out this B&B enticed us to stay in and just lap... More

Anyone who wants a break from unrelenting modern life should come here (Also anyone who loves old houses, Victorian social history, Victorian architecture/interior design or Downton abbey). This house is a time travelling experience and a unique labour of love by the proprietors. Every bit of Victoriana makes sense when you see it in its natural setting and given the... More
