Swan House is outstanding situated in the old part of Hastings town surrounding by centuries old buildings and narrow streets. Anyone who is a fan of the TV series Foyle will recognise the location. Brendan who is the host and owner of Swan House is one of the nicest people I have met and nothing is to much trouble for... More

I chose this beautiful 'treasure' because of reviews I read and can vouch that it is all true. I will make it a point to be back because we were truly pampered. The family room upstairs was gorgeous, spotless and elegantly quaint, the staff is incredibly friendly, warm and helpful. And the breakfast was perfectly fabulous! Loved this place!

We spent 3 wonderful days at the Swan House in the end of July. We had read the very good reviews of this B&B in Hastings and could conclude that they were true. The Swan House had everything needed when you want to relax and Brendan was tremendous helpful with the various issues and questions that we had. The location... More

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.
