Love this place. The bed was so lovely to sleep in - like I was wrapped in a silky layer. Was relatively quiet with no disturbances. Loved the kitchen facilities which allowed me to cook dinner before laying on the bed to read my exciting book.

The accommodation there is clean and rooms reasonable. Not top class accommodation, nothing special, but nothing wrong either, and given 3 stars in terms of value for money. About 10 mins walk to the city centre (including options for breakfast). Close to railway track, but we only heard 1 train.

We stayed here over Easter, a family of 2 adults and 2 children. Nice & clean. The children both enjoyed the pool. As it was Easter lots of shops closed on Good Friday & Easter Sunday, but there is a petrol station very close to get supplies if you need them. It is about 5 minutes walk from shops &... More

I highly recommend staying at the Portmans if visiting Hastings. When making the booking (a last minute one) the staff were very friendly and helpful and was the same when we checked in. We had a studio for 2 nights and was perfect. It was spotless and clean. The room had a queen bed and a single bed, spa bath... More

Thanks to the owners for two very clean, modern and spacious units. We had a one bedroom unit and had reserved a studio for another family couple. Both were excellent and we would definitely book in again.
