This hotel is perfect. It's beautifully and tastefully decorated and the breakfast is to die for. But what makes it really special, is the people who run it. Brendon is just the most accommodating person I have ever met and Harriet is equally as lovely. Nothing id too much trouble, they're adorable. The chef is also so polite, but I... More

We stayed two nights in this lovely place and it really lived up to its reviews. Everything was perfect, from small delights like real filter coffee in the bedroom and (since we had said we are wheat-free) lovely gluten-free bread with breakfast plus special biscuits in the bedroom. Breakfasts delicious and a real change from the usual B&B offerings. Thanks... More

A friend and I stayed with Brendan at Swan House for two nights, and it was truly the highlight of our trip. It's beautifully designed - filled with art from local artists, a great library and sitting room. Brendan is talented, gracious, and he can cook! The breakfasts were so delicious, and Brendan, anticipating our immediate need for coffee, (having... More

Two (?) years ago I treated myself to 3 nights at this delightful place. I was glad to read the recent reviews as it means that the high standard has been maintained over time. On a recent day-trip to Hastings I went especially to look at the outside.. I feared the worst - i.e. that Swan House had changed hands... More

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...
