Every room is themed after a country - we had India. Up four flights of stairs in a charming seafront house, under the roof, the noises from plumbing, or birds, or the building itself, made sleep difficult. But everything was delightful in the room and loads of facilities were crammed in, including a Jacuzzi bath, and it was rather fun.... More

Great location for visiting Hastings. Potential issues with parking avoided by leaving the car around the corner & up the hill slightly, where there are not parking restrictions. The rooms are quirky, fantastically thoughtfully designed and furnished, and fun! The public areas are again ingeniously designed and furnished to create a relaxing, easy atmosphere. Very comfortable night and excellent dinner... More

I booked this hotel for a romantic retreat for my wife and I and it didn't disappoint. Set on the seafront in St. Leonard's our Antarctica room afforded beautiful sea views and a glimpse of Hastings' pier. The room is large, light and airy with its own private steamer and sauna. We were met by the hotel manager who organised... More

Wife treated me to a surprise short break for my 60th. On arrival , area looked average and so did the hotel, however on entering I was very surprised. Staff were very welcoming. There was a guaranteed parking place (for a small surcharge) at a nearby, gated, underground car park. After being shown to our room there was a complimentary... More

Stayed here for one night as a treat away, and what a treat! Complimentary welcome drink on arrival, and little touches like luxury chocolates in the room make this hotel stand out and worth every penny. Quality fixtures and fittings throughout, rooms are well maintained and have lovely decor. We stayed in the Japan room - the lovely shower and... More

We stayed in 'South America', a gorgeous, spacious room. Lovely big bed with quality linen. Bathrobes, Rose oil for the huge bath, fantastic sea view! We wandered down to the old town for our evening meal so I can't comment on Pier Nine, the Hotel's restaurant, however it does look lovely with a very appealing menu. Staff are very welcoming...

Wonderful stay in Manhattan - the top floor penthouse suite at this hotel. Fabulously spacious and well-decorated suite, very nice service, great dinner and to top it all, probably the best in-room breakfast I have ever had. All for a very reasonable price. Although Hastings itself is really quite rough, we will come back for a whole weekend. Just because... More

We stayed in the South America room and had a fabulous time. The room was quite large, well equipped and had a bath overlooking the sea. (Although there is no stand-alone shower, only a 'bath shower'.) The food was delicious and breakfast a delight. There was some road noise from cars passing in the night, but nothing to complain about... More
