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

My boyfriend and I stayed in Minstrel's Rest last night and can't believe how great the whole experience was! From the minute we arrived, Paul and Michelle were so welcoming. They showed us to our room and showed us lovely bathroom with spa bath - heaven! The room was fully stocked with tea/coffee, even a fridge with milk and fruit... More

Stayed here while visiting family in Ore.. For us, great location, walking distance from our daughter's home. Might be seen as a little out of town for folk wanting to explore Hastings without using the car. Free parking but very tight (we lost our mudflap despite crawling down from the steep hill of off road parking - parked on the... More

We stayed just one night,as we were going on a local vineyard tour. A really good touch was transport to and from the vineyard. The medieval theme is carried throughout, pottery mugs and drinking vessels, medieval music at breakfast, the food was fantastic, with all fresh produce freshly prepared by Michelle and served by Phill. The bed was very comfortable... More

Stopped for one night on my Birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Had a room with a four poster bed in it and although a little cramped it was very comfortable. Was unfortunately woken early by a baby crying in another room but this was all the noise we heard during our stay. Breakfast was excellent in the medieval... More

Enjoyed our overnight stop at this bed and breakfast. The owners work hard to make you feel welcome. The room was comfortable with a generous range of coffee and teas as well as fresh juice and milk in the mini fridge. They also supplied a large range of homemade toiletries which were lovely. The breakfast choice was fab, the homemade... More
