I don't know where to start here the warm welcome with marmalade cake, the fantastic room, the ideal location for everything local, the breakfast, the service. Everything was perfect ... then we found the garden .... I believed this place was magical before we stayed at the old rectory This excelled our expectations and confirmed that hastings is for us...

Lovely place, we were made extremely welcome on arrival. As for the wedding and reception, what can I say, brilliantly organised and top food, would like to thank Tracy-Ann for looking after everyone so well.

We attended a wedding in June and was just amazing. The location was great, the gardens were spectacular and the food was out of this world. Would highly recommend this venue for an intimate wedding. A great day was had by all.

Very friendly and warm welcome. Love the way this beautiful house is decorated and the garden is just perfect to relax. Bedroom was so lovely and nicely decorated. Bathroom was grand. I just love the whole place and wish I could have stayed few extra nights. The breakfast was devine :)

Where to begin.....our whole experience was completely flawless! We wanted a small intimate garden wedding and felt that The Old Rectory would be perfect, particularly as we are local to Hastings. We were not wrong, right from the first contact with Tracey-Anne our experience was enjoyable. From the moment we were welcomed through the front door on our first meeting... More

The Old Rectory is simply stunning inside and out. Every detail has been finished to perfection and the rooms and interiors are to die for. I would happily have stayed forever and didn't want to leave. The staff are so friendly and the food was beautiful. I can't give a single negative comment and would be back in a heartbeat.

I recently stayed in the Old Rectory for the 2nd time, having also attended as a wedding guest. It's the most beautifully laid out establishment, much more than a classic bed and breakfast. Impeccable design and furnishings, most of most of which I'd have happily packed in my bag if allowed; perfectly charming service and a wonderful breakfast....

My husband and I married at the Old Rectory last July, (see my profile for a review - if you are looking to get married in Hastings, there is nowhere else quite like it!) and stayed in Crown room for our Anniversary last month. Tracey-Anne and the team, as always, run a very tight ship and the care they take... More

We stayed at the Old Rectory for our wedding night this July 2016. Even before we arrived the staff were helpful and charming to deal with. After some very busy weeks wedding planning and with our main wedding party planned for two days later, the Old Rectory was for us both a treat and an oasis of tranquility. In the... More
