We stayed here for one night whilst on a cycle trip. It is absolutely wonderful! Right in the heart of the historic town, a house of immense character that has been decorated with great taste and style. We were given a very friendly welcome by a female worker (sorry can't remember your name!) and met the owner Brendan at breakfast... More

We so enjoyed our stay at Swan House. Lovely welcome from Brendan, beautifully decorated and comfortable room and bathroom. Beth and Harriet gave us an excellent breakfast which really set us up for the day. Hasting Old Town is fascinating and very pretty. We will definitely be back!

We found ourselves staying the night in Hastings at Swan House on the recommendation of a shop owner on the High Street, who advised us, with great enthusiasm, that it was the best place around. Her plaudits were fully justified. The cottage, which dates from the 15th century if I recall correctly, is very homely. Brendan, was a charming host,... More

Swann House is an absolute gem of a place - so easily reached from London, and in a wonderful position in Hastings Old Town. The décor is very understated, contemporary and elegant, the room super comfortable and breakfast was delicious. Our host, Brendan, could not have been more charming and helpful. We will be back. Highly recommended.

This was our third visit to Swan House, and each time we can't wait to come back again. The house itself is charming and full of character and artistic flair. We have stayed in three of the rooms so far and each has been perfect with the most wonderful bed linen and quirky shell decorated baths. Brendan is the perfect... More

My wife and I arrived at Swan House late in the afternoon on a very wet and windy day having spent the afternoon at the wonderful Jerwood Art Gallery. There was a very warm welcome from Brendan who showed us to our very cosy room where everything was immaculate. We came down to a roaring open fire, tea and delicious... More

Swan House is a beautifully decorated and comfortable place to stay. Greeting was very welcoming and service is very good. Breakfast was lovely too. A breakfast in bed continental option would have been great for New Years Day as we read this was possible but the day we left!

Brendan and his team will take exceptional care of you at this amazing B&B which combines contemporary style within a fascinating, somewhat creaky Old Town House from the 1400's. Without doubt our favourite feature is the huge guest living room with two squishy sofas around a roaring fire, where you can browse through the house library of art books and... More

We've stayed in Hastings old town on a number of occasions. The Swan is the best of a small number of high end B&Bs there. Everything about it is classy. Lovely lounge. Gorgeous rooms. Nice ensuite with organic toiletries. The owner, Brendan, could not be more helpful when it comes to checking in, arranging parking, advice on area, and just... More
