We stayed at Minstrel’s Rest which added to the flavour of the medieval theme as we were visiting Hastings to attend the re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings. The medieval theme ran throughout the house which has been lovingly decorated. The couple who run the B&B have a mine full of information of medieval fairs and historical re-enactments. Very friendly... More

A lovely couple run this themed bed and breakfast in a residential area of Hastings. It is slightly off the beaten track but fine if you have a car. Parking is available in the road but could be a bit tight - however, we were lucky and parking was not an issue for us. The rooms were really comfortable and... More

An absolutely spotless, comfortable b&b. The medieval theme is brilliant, the rooms though small have everything necessary and more! So many thoughtful touches and a warm welcome. Hope to return one day. Breakfast was superb and good choice available.

Apart from a very small en-suite in our bedroom Minstrel's Rest is a very good bed and breakfast establishment. The owners are very friendly,breakfast was excellent and the rooms were very clean. Parking in the road can be difficult as you will be competing with the neighbours and as you are a fair distance from the sea front a car... More

The hosts really know how to make you feel welcome. They have created a wonderful place , comfortable , the attention to detail is delightful. It is a short drive from the seafront and if you are not familiar with Hastings , a sat nav makes finding Mintrels Nest easy.

We booked our one night at Minstrel's Rest using good reviews from TA. We were getting a little anxious as everywhere we tried was fully booked and we had visions of sleeping in the car. When we rang to enquire we were very lucky that a last minute cancellation had just been received, so we booked, with great relief. We... More

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
