I'm local to St Leonards and my husband was working a very long shift at the local hospital on his birthday. I really wanted him to feel special so I looked and found a room here. Because we could only arrive late and I knew how stressed he was I asked for some of his favorite foods to be put... More

I always like to read other reviews before I submit mine to see if there's something I may miss. Well our experience was great. We stayed in the Manhattan Suite, pictures attached. We arrived earlier than expected and sat in the back garden and had a drink while we waited, well needless to say, that we then decided to have... More

My partner and i stayed at this hotel a few months back, in the Japan room, and it was great. Complimentery drinks on arrival, polite staff, clean room and really lovely breakfast. The spa bath was rather small for 2 people, but just fine for 1 :)

Stayed in the Bali room,possibly one of the smaller rooms but still worth booking-The hotel owners were smart enough to add special features like the spa shower in the corner and the sky light-you could star gaze at night even in cloudy weather!It didn't bother us at all that this room had no sea view as the garden view was...

We first visited this hotel when it first opened and it was brilliant. Second visit was a disaster. stains on the room ceiling, broken spa shower, nearly boiled myself to death in it, nozzles missing off the spa jets. Ripped and stained chaise, blind in the bathroom fell off the wall. The manager came and fixed it back up with... More

A second visit did not disappoint, a cancellation meant we had the option of upgrading so we ended up in manhattan which was amazing. Fab bed, bath, aquarium, shower and Buddha, and perfect for a 6 year old to sleep in the lounge area. Even the iron was fantastic.I hope to return to work my way through all the rooms.... More

We stayed in the Indian and Japan rooms which were decorated to a very high standard . we ate evening meal and breakfast at the hotel which were both delicious.Would highly... More

Stayed at the Zanzibar for my partners birthday on a Sunday night in July. We had the Antartica room which looked exactly like it did in the photos - very clean, elegant with superb sea views. We had a breakfast and dinner deal. Loved the restaurant and outside terrace. Food was very good and service excellent. Overall 10/10
