We just spent another 3 perfect days in this incredible little haven. It's our 3rd visit in under 18 months. The atmosphere here is absolutely charming, as are the people who run it. It's all tastefully decorated for Christmas and if I could, I'd spend the whole holiday here ! It's a real find. The breakfast is amazing and it's... More

I've stayed at Swan House twice now, once in the height of summer and once in the winter. I can't praise Brandan and his team highly enough. Swan House has such a welcoming air, and amazing, restful décor with all kinds of quirky little accents. You see something different every time you walk in. Everything is geared for guests' comfort... More

Many thanks for your review, Eileen. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay so much and experienced Swan House and Hastings in Winter and Summer, both delightful in their own way. I appreciate your comments about noise carrying in our old house. I do provide earplugs if required, which are especially useful at the height of seagull nesting... More

The Swan House is a lovely place to stay, Brendan and his staff provided us with warm welcome on the first day and amazing breakfast before we left!! We went there during a quiet week and they offered to upgrade us to a beautiful spacious room, everything was perfect, highly recommended!!

Delightful place to stay in Hastings Old Town. Room very comfy and warm, marvelous breakfast and wonderful host for which nothing was too much trouble. Well situated for our needs and was well pleased with our choice. Would certainly return here again.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your visit. You stayed during a particularly cold spell, and I am especially pleased that you were warm, cosy and comfortable. "Home from home" is probably one of the best accolades we can ask for. Best wishes from all the SWan House team. More

What a delightful place to stay ! The location was excellent and close to all that the Old Town had to offer. It was our first stay in Hastings and we couldn't have hoped for a better place. The room was exceptional as was the rest of the main house where we were made to feel very welcome. The open... More

Dear Scott, many thanks for your review. It was a pleasure to have you visit. I am particularly pleased that you enjoyed our breakfasts. Our bacon and sausages are sourced from a butchers nearby called Archers, who are currently Sussex Butcher of the Year, and going by your comments, very well deserved. More

Swan House has fabulous accommodation, beautiful setting, very relaxed atmosphere, gorgeous breakfast menu and amazing food (although very slow service on one of the 2 days there), highly recommended.

We hope you come back and enjoy a smoother, enjoyable breakfast next time. More

This is a beautiful, unique and welcoming place to stay. They have treated thia historic buildong with real care and created a wonderful blend of traditional and contemporary. Location couldn't be better; in the heart of the old town but tucked away in a quite corner and a stones throw from everything. Choice of breakfast was equally fantastic with lots... More

Swan House is old, full of character and beautifully decorated with real attention to detail. Breakfast was great! We enjoyed walking along the seafront, eating out, having a cup of tea by the fire and visiting antique shops in the old town. We really re-charged our batteries with lots of rest and relaxation. I would recommend highly as an exceptional... More

Emma, thank you for such a lovely review. You've summed up a perfect visit to Swan House and Hastings. We are fortunate to be in such a central position in the heart of the Old Town, with so many shops and restaurants on our doorstep. Myself and the team really appreciate your kind, positive comments.

I use Trip Advisor frequently for research before travelling anywhere but have never written any reviews until now...... Swan House was amazing. Brendan could not have been more helpful and made me and my family feel so welcome. The building and décor is wonderful and the location is superb. The beds are extremely comfortable, rooms spotlessly clean and breakfast delicious.... More

We had a simply awesome experience at the Swan House in Hasting, England. Brandon offers a first class experience in this magnificent 1490 structure. Our accommodation and bath were immaculate, comfortable and offered all the amenities we required.
