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.

Our two bedroom unit was spacious and clean. We were set back from the road so it was peaceful and quiet. The kids loved the pool which was warm. The staff were friendly and helpful. Motel is close to town. An easy stroll to shops and restaurants. Would stay again

this motor lodge is by far my stay of preference when travelling to Hastings to work with team members. Cheerful, clean and welcoming rooms, staff are welcoming and friendly and the food is excellent. Not expensive but great value for money

A special thing was the chilled water in the frig when we arrived hot and bothered after a day's travel. But I was worried about the windows which seemed to allow for a small person to enter without our knowledge.... More
