The hotel is lovely. The restaurant (another review) was very good and I would recommend. The Bar Area is quaint and the choice of breakfast location (Garden weather permitting, or inside) - are all good choices. Reception was friendly and efficient. Very helpful offering to carry our bags, and excellent directions to the secure parking. All big ticks. We had... More

The booking confirmation email also noted that we could arrive at 2pm. Alas on arrival we was told that the room was not ready and... More

I booked this hotel because of all the wonderful reviews. I was extremely disappointed with it. Good Points: Breakfast (Mushrooms were fantastic) Dinner (Best Fillet Steak i have ever eaten) DVD Selection Restaurant and Reception Staff. Location Bad Points: Room: We stayed in Morocco and were disappointed from the moment we set foot in the door. It just got worse.... More

My boyfriend brought me here as a surprise. I couldn't believe it! We stayed in the Manhattan suite and I was absolutely floored as we went up the spiral staircase and saw the incredible apartment we had for the night. The bath is just incredible, and the bed is enormous. If you're looking for somewhere for a special occasion, this... More

Spent a few days here as a birthday treat courtesy of my wife and what can I say that hasn't already been said? Friendly and helpful staff, excellent room - Antarctica- overlooking the sea, (or rather in the sea as with the high winds and the window open it made a sea view more of a sea experience). On street... More

What's not to love about this place... I stumbled across this hotel on a general search for somewhere to stay in Hastings for a special weekend. I hit jack pot, my only regret is that I didn't book two nights, at least I know for next time. Great location, great staff, great restaurant (we ate in the garden which was... More

The hotel is about a 10 minutes walk from St Leonard's train station through a run down part of the town to the hotel. The locals encountered along the way didn't look very encouraging. The hotel is located along a long rows of sad looking buildings badly in need of some refurbishments with a few undergoing renovations. The hotel itself... More

I booked the Zanzibar for a romantic weekend away for me and my husband for our anniversary. I googled 'best hotels rooms UK' and the pics (as with the ones on the website) sold it to me instantly. When I called to book the lady said the 'main bedroom' was booked but they would give me the next best one,... More

We stayed in the 'Manhattan' room and it was stunning. The apartment was out of this world and we really enjoyed being able to have our breakfast in our lovely room the next morning. The staff are super friendly and it has a very relaxed atmosphere. 5* excellent!

From the very beginning we felt welcome and were looked after with a welcome drink. We had arrived a little bit early but the staff were more than helpful and surprisingly almost apologetic the room wasn't ready. We stayed in the South America room which was a beautiful, large room with a balcony and sea views. The room was spotlessly... More
