This is a great friendly boutique hotel with attention to detail. We had a very warm welcome on arrival and had a welcome drink whilst our bags were taken to the room. We were then shown to the room and were told everything you would ever need about the hotel and local area. Our bedroom was the Japanese room (all... More

Another lovely stay at Zanzibar. Africa is the best room for the views and big jacuzzi bath. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Max, the owner and his staff. Dinner in the restaurant is a must too with delicious food and beautiful surroundings. We also go down to Hastings for some much needed time alone and peace & quiet.... More

Believe the hype, this boutique hotel is mad, querky and very cool. First and very importantly Do Not be put off by the surrodunding buildings, yes they're scruffy but then all of Hastings is a mixture of rough and smooth. We paid extra for underground parking and to be honest there was the odd second or two when I thought... More

We stayed in the Morocco room. Clever design used all the space in the room to great effect. The room has a high ceiling and the bed is on a snug mezzanine level up a small spiral stair case, this creates space for a living area in the main body of the room. Nice selection of art both in the... More

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
