I'm trying not to reiterate all the positive comments from previous reviews but just to say ditto and thrice ditto! Please be assured this is not some cheaply themed homage to the Victorian era but a loved and lovingly curated home which Stephen and Paul generously choose to share with their guests. Needless to say we found our stay to... More

Amazing B&B. I don't normally do long reviews, but I'm about to make an exception, because this place deserves it. Met Stephen on arrival, was greeted with a warm welcome, tea and probably the best jam on toast I have ever tasted. On a side note Stephen has a natural talent / personality of making you feel welcome and wanted.... More

A delightfully restored Victorian family dwelling-house, creating a living-museum but without the stuffiness or restraint one might experience in a period property. The charming hosts compliment the accommodation perfectly, making us feel completely at home from the moment we arrived, to parlour music and home-made sponge for afternoon tea. A night to remember in congenial settings, and a delicious cooked... More

We were recommended to stay here by friends and we were certainly not disappointed. The house is just beautiful but a little hard to find! It is full of art work and antiques. Every surface is covered by an interesting trinket or plants. Attention to detail made our stay really enjoyable. Our bedroom was very pretty and our only disappointment... More

Steven and Paul were great hosts - we could tell it would be a special place as soon as we walked in and were given a tray of tea, complete with silver teapot and homemade cake, in front of the fire, in a meticulously put together Victorian dreamworld!

Loved my night at St Benedict B&B for the Victoriana and attentive care of owners. It was a rush visit and last minute reservation, and the place is a bit off the beaten track, but well worth the effort to get there. A real experience.

When investigating places to stay in Hastings we came across the wonderful website for St Benedict's. Being lovers of Victorian and Morris-style decoration we simply had to visit. We can happily report that it more than lived up to expectations. The decorations are simply amazing, and look totally authentic, which most of them are with a few skilfully executed modern... More

What a surprise. We arrived at 5pm and were invited for tea and cake in the beautiful garden. The rooms are fantastic. I can't imagine what it took to get them that way and what it takes to maintain this astonishing house. My deepest respect. When you have the chance to stay there, take it.

We live in a fully restored late Victorian family house, and delight in welcoming guests to the period atmosphere we have created. We pride ourselves on a meticulous attention to detail, and have tried to recreate the style of living of the 1880s. You will find this a very distinctive and characterful place to stay. ... more   less
