What was good about the hotel: - Friendliness: though in a rather informal manner, check in and the entire service was absolutely friendly and competent - Our room (Morocco) was as we had expected it: nicely decorated, cozy with its mezzanine. We were able to see other rooms and would recommend to opt for a sea view as it is... More

We stayed here with friends for a birthday celebration and so glad we did as it is just perfect. We stayed in 'Africa' and 'Antarctica' and both have sea views from your bed! Welcome drinks on arrival served on the rear terrace was a nice touch by the friendly staff. We had dinner in their restaurant 'Pier 9' which was... More

We were in Hastings for the Elvis Costello concert so we were always going to have a good time , but Zanzibar made the trip and far exceeded our expectations. We booked the hotel based on the excellent tripadvisor reviews but if anything they understated the charm of this unique property . In reality Max and his team are always... More

I found this hotel via TripAdvisor. It fully deserves its rating. Pleasantly surprised to be offered a complimentary drink on arrival, and a choice of where to take breakfast. Glad to take up the secure car parking (which is 2 minutes' walk away, under the prom in a marked bay.) The room which we had [Bali] was clean and well... More

My partner & I travel frequently for business and pleasure, so we stay in all kinds of hotels. However, this is the first time I've taken the time to review one. Max and his staff could not have provided better service. The sea views were stunning, and the interior design was as good as anything you would see in a... More

What a find! We were so impressed with the service, standard and attention to detail. We stayed for one night in the Moroccan room - it was superb and so authentic. We loved having a separate living room and bedroom area on the mezzanine level. After a hectic weekend, we took advantage of being in such a unique room and... More

The hotel has a great location just 30 seconds away from the sea, it is a great place to relax and unwind. From the outside you may think that the hotel will not be great, but once inside it’s a completely different story. We stayed for two nights and was a great place with room with different themes. We stayed... More

I have eaten here several times and am always more than happy with the food. The restaurant décor is outstanding and the outside area is lovely...the food is amazing! Sunday roast is by far the best I have ever had!

Myself and my boyfriend were celebrating our birthdays and decided to take a trip down to Hastings to spend a few days by the sea. When we arrived at the Zanzibar we were offered a complimentary glass of prossecco in the bar before being shown to our room. I was immediatley impressed with the friendly service. Only slight disappointment was... More
