A great 2 nights in every way. Lots of useful & enthusiastic advice on local sights. Room was very tidy and comfortable. While on a main road, it wasn't in a noisy area and I didn't hear a noise all night even though it was the labour weekend. If I ever return to Hastings I'd be very happy to return... More

Loved the friendly welcome and proximity to the CBD - easy walking distance. Comfortable bed with an electric blanket which was very welcome on a cold night. The only downside was a noisy fridge but otherwise we were very comfortable and would stay there again.

I stayed for three nights, the hospitality of the vendors could not have been better. The breakfasts we unbelievable. The rooms were of good size, warm as the vendors had turned on the heaters prior to arrival (thanks guys) and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in, and I have spent many a night...

Welcoming motel with beautiful english garden like grounds. The hosts bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable. They noticed any special needs or tastes and took care of them. We requested restaurant recommendations and were very happy with the choices given to us. We were here for business. All of our special requests for office help were received with... More

Quiet, clean and good value for the money. Older style motel, well maintained with very comfortable beds. The pool being unheated didn't matter with the high temperatures we experienced. Although near the railway trains are rare, or we didn't hear them. A short drive to the city, helpful owners when you need to know something local.

We stayed at the Clansman on our Honeymoon and the ambience of everything was superb. Exceedingly clean rooms and facilities plus a very comfortable bed and pillows which is a must when you are away from home. Presentation of our unit was excellent and very welcoming.
