“Excellent guest house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I can't think of any way to improve this guest house, it is immaculately clean and light, centrally located with extremely friendly and helpful owners.
My work brings me to Hastings regularly and I couldn't stay anywhere else.

Beautifully restored Victorian house in centre of town. 5 minutes from railway station, beach, and Old Town. Received warm welcome from Eddie our host. He was keen to to provide us with maps and suggestions for spending our time there. The rooms are are very tastefully decorated, warm and spotlessly clean. There is even free parking nearby. We will definitely be returning.

Stayed two nights and very impressed. Victoria couldn't do enough to help me out with my awkward travel plans and even let me check in early, but it didn't feel at all like the owners were on top of you as you get in some guest houses. Rooms lovely, very nicely fitted out and everything you could need. Location great and free local parking was a bonus - excellent value for £47/night (booked last minute as well), will be back!

Despite (or may because of) the blustery November weather in the seaside town of Hastngs, we had a delightful stay at the Phoenix Guest House there. Eddie, the ebullient and very gracious owner and host, made my girlfriend and I feel very welcome for a weekend getaway after a grueling week of business activities in London. Overnight parking is included if you're driving and most everything is in walking distance. Highly recommended!

A different concept, offering bed but no breakfast, but it worked, We had a pleasant greeting, told where to park the car and show to our room. Excellent facilities, tea/coffee and a DVD playing TV. We were also given suggestions where to have an evening meal and breakfast. Would stay there again.

The Phoenix should be the bench mark for guest houses.
We booked two rooms over a weekend and both couples were very pleased.
The place is spotlessly clean, with modern stylist decor and fittings.
The rooms have tea/coffee facilities and a fridge to keep stuff in.
The place is owned by a nice couple who were very helpful.
All in all a very clean, modern centrally located place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms that we saw were excellent.

Eddie was just great! So helpful - especially after Hotels.com (Expedia) mistakenly cancelled our reservation when we tried to change the dates. Eddie contacted us directly and took care of us. The guest house is clean, VERY nice, and right next to downtown Hastings. In a few minutes walk we could be at the beach, any restaurant and it is very close to the bus/train station. It was the perfect place to stay to see things in Hastings or anywhere on the southern coast. It's on a quiet street and we always felt safe. We would DEFINITLY stay there again!

Room Tip: They have one room (maybe more, but I don't think so) on the 2nd floor that has a queen size bed...
