My Husband found this homey B & B on the 1066 website and we were not disappointed. We arrived in Hastings on my birthday last friday afternoon and as soon as we came in we were greeted by Michelle & Phill with a smile. They were very kind and politely told us they were upgrading us to a bigger room... More

We had never been to Hastings before, so took Trip Advisor's recommendation and stayed at this B&B. Without question, it is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. The owners are wonderfully accommodating people, the theming has been done with such consistency that it is quite appealing, and the breakfasts have to be seen to be believed. We were... More

Having read trip advisor reviews of this establishment from Australia when planning our UK driving trip, we booked for a night. At the 11th hour our trip had to be postponed due to family illness. While our other pre-bookings proved to be difficult to transfer, Phil was so understanding even though we had originally booked peak season; he took the... More

My partner and I stayed at Minstrels Rest just for one night however it was a great place to stay. Michelle and I think it was Phil ( sorry if that is incorrect ) were the perfect hosts they could not do enough for us, the medieval theme runs right through the inside of the building which is fun, this...

We needed somewhere as close as possible to a wedding party we were attending to avoid driving or hiring taxis and up popped the Minstrel's Rest. We hit the jackpot! One can usually find at least one minor fault even in the best of household name hotels but it turned out to be so much more than somewhere to put... More

Stayed here for two days on my own in September 2013. It was booked as it had good ratings for the money. I didn't realise that I was entering something different from the norm. Met by Phill on arrival who is very friendly, as is Michelle who I met later. The place is decked out with a medevil style. I... More

We stayed in July and would recommend this hotel to anyone. From the outside we were a little apprehensive that we were at the wrong location, but once we stepped inside the front door we were pleasantly suprised. The owners were so friendly and helpful and the room was perfect in every way, even down to the home made toiletries... More

You could google 21 Greville Road, see the outside and belive you were just looking at another Guest house but you would be wrong. This is no ordenry guest house. It is said never judge a book by its cover, inside you experience a medieval display in every room depicting seans of times gone by in Hastings shown with passion... More

Extremely helpful owners, particularly Phill, and eager to please. The entire B&B has a mediaeval theme, which some might find overdone but was not too bad. The bed was supersoft, the room was tiny with barely enough room for the bag but the little extras of juice and chilled water were well-appreciated. Ensuite small but very well equipped. The absolute... More
