“Great Place to Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

I can't really add anything extra to what's already been said & can confirm that the spa bath, Japanese toilet & outdoor pool really make this a great place to stay.

We stayed in April, but something to consider if you are booking in the Summer is that some of the rooms have no windows (we were on the ground floor rear room) and although the en-suite had it's own seperate entrance - which was great when we came back from the old town late at night - there is no way to ventilate the room so it would probably be unberarable in the summer.

The management/staff were not too visible, which suited us.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms without windows - room 3

I stayed two nights with my girlfriend and it was the most perfect base for a weekend break/escape. The rooms are beautifully decorated in Japanese furniture and the Japanese Jacuzzi (one in every room) is the height of luxury. The crown jewel in this b n b though is the outdoor heated pool; extremely private, perfect temperature and with a clear sky you can float on your back and star gaze while the steam wafts over you.

Breakfast is very simple but satisfying and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Highly recommend.

My partner and myself dicided to come to Hastings on sper of the moment and hadn't looked at places to stay, however with my interest in Japan drew me to this unusual B&B, gave them a call while parked out side to see if they had a room free, which they did. We had room number 3 was clean and pleasent. We we're shown around the place which has been maintained to a good standard, I even had to have a go of the Japanese loo, staff were polite and quite. if we'd had known about the hot pool We would have brought swim wear...will come again....only downside is its not very well sign posted

Was a weekend away for wifes birthday, booked it so she could experience a japanese bath and wash away some of the stress. Everything went to plan and was fantastic. The bed really comfy, the bath deep and luxuriant. The room was hot (as mentioned in previous review) but opening skylight and turning off radiator fixed that. The breakfast is also pretty poor. But soaking a few minutes in the rotenburo and the great nights sleep mean I would highly recommend this B&B; especially as it was child friendly with a welcoming smile and kindly eye kept on our ever inquisitive wandering 2 year old meaning we felt free to actually sit and enjoy our tea. If you don't mind quirky you will not be disappointed and the morning we spent with steam coming off the water surrounded by bamboo was simply magical! WIsh we'd stayed a second night and will definitely return.

I LOVE this place. I can't fault it at all. It was spotless and luxurious without the price tag, I would have happily pay more than the £53 we paid. The heated pool was lovely as was the Jacuzzi bath and the Japanese toilet was a fun twist. Our room (number 3) was a perfect size with everything we needed, even the biscuits were great!

Pauline was very efficient with showing us to our room and showing us the facilities.

We would definitely return!

Room Tip: Number 3 was perfect

The on suite bathroom was great and the jacuzzi was lovely and deep. The bed was comfy and we slept like babies! There was a fridge in the room to keep our wine chilled, great! There is a lovely looking heated pool at the rear and massage facilities. Breakfast was continental which was adequate. And the jananese toilet..... You'll have to discover that one for yourself ;-)

This B & B is lovely quality, clean, comfortable and we loved the jacuzzi and Japanese loo with the finishing touches of bathrobes etc.

Lack of interaction from the staff after paying on arrival, was disappointing. The 'continental' breakfast really let this quality B&B down.

Room Tip: Go for the superior room for a great jacuzzi.
