My husband and I stayed here for a little break. We stayed in the Morocco room which was just lovely. The staff at the hotel were so welcoming and very helpful. Lots of lovely additional touches to make the stay even more special, such as a welcome drink in the bar, elemis toiletries, fluffy bath robes and a selection of... More

We phoned and asked whether they had a room for us and our daughter. For an extra £40 a night the hotel could offer us the Morocco room with a child's bed. They shouldn't have done this. The room has one wardrobe - the width of a coathanger and nowhere else to put anything - not clothing, not toiletries and... More

Offered an upgrade on arrival due to cancellation and stayed in S.America, lovely room. Dinner had been booked in restaurant and was superb. Beautifully fresh fish, delightfully presented. Breakfast in our room to make the most of the sea views. Couldn't fault anything! Staff were excellent.

We stayed at this little gem of a hotel for two nights in May the room was spacious and spotlessly clean, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, we had a meal in the restaurant the first night and it was of the same quality as a very top London restaurant we ate out on the second night and the...

Well, what a treat of a stay in Hastings. This really is a lovely place. We stayed for 2 nights in Africa which was extremely comfortable and quirkily (in a good way) furnished. The staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was excellent as was the evening food in the restaurant. Thank you Max.

Breakfast the next day was superb as well, enjoyed once again... More

Warning no lift, so if you cannot... More

We chose this hotel and hoped it would be good, it exeeded our expectations. Everything was so beautiful, our seafront room was comfortable, tasteful and classy, we stayed in the Antarctica room and it had it's own sauna. The food was also divine, champagne with breakfast was a great way to start the day. All the food is sourced locally... More

First impressions are quite important, and unfortunately when we arrived in Hastings the area around the hotel looked a bit run-down and shabby. We took a while finding a parking space - we then had to walk to the hotel to collect a card to let us into an underground car park (it's really hard to park outside the hotel... More
