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

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
