What a lovely warm welcome we received from Phil and Michelle, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely clean room and shower, extra touches, great night sleep followed by a wonderful brekkie, we will be back.

We stayed at the Minstrel's Rest recently after walking from Rye to Hastings. We'd stayed here before a couple of years ago and I'm pleased to say our stay was as fantastic as last time. Our room was immaculate and the bed was really comfortable. The shower was hot and the towels were so fluffy. There are so many little... More

Excellent room, beautiful decor, everything you need . Hosts could not do enough for you, and you will not want anything else to eat after the delicious breakfast.i would strongly recommend to all family and friends. It's about a 5 min drive from sea front but buses stop at the end of the road.

The Minstrel's Rest is in a residential street about a mile up form the Old Town. Do't let that put you off at all. There is parking on the street so no need to worry about car parks (there is an off street space or 2 in front of the guest house too). Welcome was friendly from Phil and Michelle.... More

Michelle and Phill gave a friendly warm welcome when we arrived. The B & B is spotless throughout and the medieval theme is very unique. They have thought of everything in the rooms - hairdryer, straighteners, bath robes, fridge which contains bottled water, fruit juice, milk, plenty of tea and coffee. The basket in the bathroom offers a wide range... More

We spent one night here on Saturday and were warmly welcomed by Michelle and Phil. We were in Blondel Room which was very comfortable although a little tight for persons with a fuller figure! Excellent comfy bed and everything was spotlessly clean. Very good breakfast in the morning. The only downside is that the stairs are very steep and it... More

Phill and Michelle run a delightful B&B in Hastings. Our room was compact but had everything we needed, right down to fresh milk and bottled water in a little fridge - the big chain hotels could learn from this! We didn't stay for breakfast - no time - but it smelt delicious.

On a residential street, this medieval-themed (suits of armor, music, that kind of thing) small hotel is comfortable, spotlessly clean, and offers a variety of room sizes. Breakfast is excellent, made to order from a long list of ingredients you might want. The owners make up for the location by giving rides to and from the station, but it is... More
