We couldn't fault this lovely little hotel. Great location in the middle of the picturesque Hastings Old Town. Sarah and John were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spotlessly clean and very well appointed, with nice little extras such as freshly ground coffee, fresh milk and even a safe in the room (which is unusual... More

My family booked 3 rooms for 2 nights. All the rooms were tasteful, spotless and spacious and the beds comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and our hosts were welcoming and attentive. Location is good in the Old Town. Breakfasts were also first class. We are not surprised that other reviews are so good.

I am writing this review on the premise that when word gets out and it is always fully booked - I can still go back!! Those who read my reviews will know I can be "a little critical" - after 35 years in this industry its takes a great deal to impress! The venue is in a quite street in... More

This is a first class place to stay for a number of reasons: Firstly, excellent hosts - John and Sarah strike an excellent balance between friendly informality and highly attentive service. Second, the breakfasts are delicious! Thirdly, the décor is really classy, clean and relaxing. Fourth, it's a really good location - just far enough from the sea front to... More

A small and calming haven in the heart of Hastings old town. The hosts are friendly, knowledgeable and keen to help, and the personal touches, such as home made cakes, and their own roasted coffee, add to the experience. The rooms are spacious, with a minimal seaside influenced look, and are equipped with everything you may need, including ironing board,... More

Being a sucker for room service, I've never been a big fan of B&Bs - but The Laindons is one of the nicest, chicest, friendliest, most comfortable places I've stayed. I especially appreciated the Tunnocks tea cake, which hit the spot after a long day (and evening). I really didn't want to leave...

The Laindons, and it's delightful new owners, was an real find. It is a beautifully calm, spotlessly clean and generously designed space full of light and uncluttered personal touches. My only regret was not to able to stay longer this time. '

Absolutely cannot fault it. The hotel is furnished to a high standard and Sarah and John make excellent hosts. The Breakfast spread was lovely and Sarah gave us great tips on what to do and where to eat- Michala's Cute Cakes in Saint Leonards was a great shout. We had the largest room, which is very spacious and has a... More
