Nice hotel right on the front. Staff are nice and friendly. Room was good, with a sea view. Good supply of tea and coffee. Air con unit came in handy because the room was quite warm because the sun was shining. Although the room was basic, it was clean and tidy. Perfect for our needs. We had a lunch there... More

Great boutique hotel right on the seafront overlooking the rather sad burnt out pier. It will be even nicer to sit out on one of two decking areas, enjoying a drink as the sun goes down when it has been rebuilt. We stayed here for just one night and had a nice, clean room with good bathroom. Our room was... More

After getting caught up in traffic I arrived at the hotel quite stressed. We were immediately given a warm greeting and shown to our room. Even though we didn't arrive until late in the hotel we still managed to acquire a parking space. We upgraded to a sea view room and it was certainly worth it . The room was... More

The location of this hotel is great - being right on the front in Hastings. There is car parking available, but this is limited. However, there's plenty of free parking immediately around the hotel (from 18.00 to 09.00 each night). Accessibility from the reception area is fine, with a lift going to all floors, but if you use the hotel... More

Wonderful location and very friendly and helpful staff. Sea-facing room and ensuite bathroom were clean with a generous offering of coffee, tea, hot chocolate and biscuit. The mini fridge was really useful for us to put cool drinks and snacks in. However, in spite of advertising free Wi-Fi (apparently it has also just been updated), we could not get an... More

We came here just for a day trip but decided to stay over the night before rather than driving up on the Saturday morning. We arrived just after 9pm on a Friday night, and were promptly shown to our room. We went for the budget double bed room (at £64 a night). At first I was a bit worried about... More

My wife and I had a pleasant stay at this hotel. Our bedroom was roomy and the bed comfortable. Nice shower, bath, wardrobe etc. We had a sea view including a view of the burnt out pier (being restored). The road was a busy, noisy road. Parking was available. There was a lift but it was very small. Staff helpful... More

We stayed for five days July 2014. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean spacious room (family room), good food. Pet friendly hotel, so we met a few dogs daily (all on leash and behaved well, I was a bit concerned in advance because of our 3 year old child ). There's a house cat also. My husband is allergic to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The White Rock Hotel is not your average hotel. As well as its fantastic location on Hastings seafront, it has a laid back, individual character that is popular with business and leisure travelers alike. We have a friendly cafe-bar; free wifi broad band access; are completely no smoking; and welcome well behaved pets. Minutes from the town centre, opposite the pier and next door to the White Rock Theatre. ... more   less
