We booked the hotel at the last minute to spend a weekend away from London. We saw some photos and found quite nice so we just decided as it s close to Hastings.
It is located on a normal street surrounded by houses. However, once we stepped in the house, it was another era with loads of antiques and interior carefully chosen and decorated by owners. We were offered a top floor with private bathroom outside the bedroom. Both bedroom and bathroom are finely furnished with Victorian motive and details are so much so that we got confused n a good way.
In the bathroom there was no shower as it was in Victorian era and we had to take bath instead. Even toilette was from the era and it requires to pull the flash code twice instead of once.
We were also offered nice afternoon tea with home made sponge cake. Breakfast was also based on Victorian style except that we can drink coffee. Silverware and China were also carefully chosen to reflect Victorian style even if they were not.
Great experience and discovery such a B&B and definitely recommend this place to those who like history and are interested n Victorian style!
