We went to the Zanzibar for our Mini-moon and had a fantastic time. We stayed in the lovely 'India' room, after moving from the 'Bali' - a bit small. The food was delicious and the staf couldn't have been nicer - nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely go back. I highly recommend a visit.

Just returned from another night in the lively Zanzibar Hotel! I can't praise this hotel and it's owners and staff highly enough! so much so that we have booked another night there next month! From the moment you arrive until it's time to leave you are treated with courtesy and owners and staff are so attentive! I am already looking... More

'From arrival to departure we could not have wished for a more welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is exactly as described on the website. Our room, India, was perfect and has made us want to return and try a different room with a different theme. We ended our day with drinks and a little something from the restaurant... More

This is a boutique hotel and the rooms, particularly the bathrooms are small, so small that the shower was actually in the bedroom. In the Bali room this meant a glass door spa shower, which meant my husband got the full display when I showered, not that he hadn't seen it before but it was still a little odd. However... More

This hotel is such a jewel in Hastings crown!! Each room is individually decorated to a theme, this is the third time we have stayed and it definitely will not be the last. We state in Room Africa, the view from our room was breathtaking. Definitely worth a visit - Highly recommended.

Stayed here one night during our Foyles War visit. (We found the house which is about all there is). Checkin was a little slow but not really a problem. We took a walk to old town were there was a festival going on got to see a "Sea Boots" race. Decided after walking around that the best option for dinner... More

We only stayed one night at Zanzibar, but it was very pleasant. The hotel is deceptive from the outside, where the ocean front row of buildings looks tired and dated. Inside, though, is quite nice! Our room was well outfitted and comfortable. The staff was quite helpful and friendly. We decided to dine at the hotel and we're not disappointed.... More

Lovely, attentive service. Our Japan room was spotlessly clean & quiet. Bathrobes, slippers & good selection of free water, tea & coffee are supplied. Ren products in our rather cool shower/jacuzzi in the room which made me very happy. Great location & the restaurant clearly popular with the residents of Hastings. A good breakfast was served in the delightful garden.... More

I booked a twin sea view room as a birthday present for my mother, at a cost of £180 B&B. The owner has obviously spent a lot of money on the hotel, but I think it is starting to look a little tired. We had lunch in the restaurant, which was okay, nothing special. In the morning I only had... More
