Thank you Brendan and the delightfully chipper young lady who served us a cracking breakfast this morning. The large Rennaisance room was decorated beautifully with a tranquil little roof terrace accessed through a sash window. Gorgeous little extras like locally made bath soaps, etc and a welcome arrival drink (with huge slab of home made lemon loaf) in our little... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at this charming Tudor B&B. Everything was fantastic from the comfortable room to the deliciously perfect breakfast. Brendan was very kind and attentive to our needs and was a great host. We highly recommend this great retreat.

We stayed at the Swan House last night and I can honestly say it was completely lovely. The decor and ambiance were second to none. Brendan made us feel very much at home. Breakfast this morning was scrumptious - best breakfast in a hotel I have had.

We have just returned from a night in Hastings at the Swan House. I'm not sure I have the words to do this hotel justice. Everything about this hotel is perfect, the greeting on arrival, the room, parking instructions (review sept 2008!!!) and best of all (although that's unfair on everything else about the hotel) was the breakfast!!!! Stunning!!!! If... More

Now I know there is no such word, but it describes Swan House to a tee! Brendan the owner is delightful and absolutely nothing is too much trouble. Booked last minute, ( the night before).The place is full of character, beautifully furnished and immaculate. We had the Church room, and it's beautiful. Lovely bed, huge en suite with shower over...

You may have a reason to go to Hastings, you may not. I'm fairly sure that after you visit Swan House, it will become a place to revisit on its' own merit. The wife and I wanted a relaxing, beautiful place to stay in Hastings for 1 night, where we could enjoy the sea-side town, and yet stay in luxurious... More

Just back from a weekend stay at Swan House, and cannot recommend it highly enough. Met by Brendon with tea, coffee and biscuits served on the patio. Expertly shown to a parking space with very handy permit to use and given the best ways to head out and explore! Very helpful as the old town was beautiful and we had... More

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at Swan house. Brendan's warm and friendly personality permeates everything. The rooms are beautifully fitted out and comfortable. There is plenty of choice at breakfast to suit all tastes. Little touches like tea when we got back at 5 o'clock were the icing on the cake. Many thanks - we will return.

My husband and I stayed in Swan House for a long weekend. From the start we were given a warm welcome by Brendan, one of the owners, who brought us tea and cake in the oak-beamed lounge. We stayed in the Garden Room; it was a little on the small size, but the fact that it had it's own door... More

Last minute booking for a weekend at the seafront! Found this little gem B&B by chance so booked in. Our stay here was absolutely delightful also helped by the beautiful weather we found. It is a very characteristic and authentic townhouse B&B. Lovely located though. The owners were very welcoming. Our room was lovely and had a good sleep. The... More
