After much searching came across Minstrel's Rest. What a great place to stay. Travelling with friends who stayed here also. Comfortable rooms with great amenities, so thoughtful about what little extras you may need or things you may have forgotten to pack. Superb breakfast served exactly as you want with so much choice. Quiet surroundings, taxi ride to the centre... More

Stayed there for the week-end. 10 minutes drive to the beach, which was very good as we were away from the noisy seagulls. Michelle and Phil are great and you can see their touch all over the place. Comfortable bed, divine towels, toiletries and bathrobes are a nice surprise. Medieval atmosphere everywhere. Well done to the hosts who put a... More

My partner and I had a superb time at this quirky Medieval themed guesthouse. Phill and Michelle were both extremely welcoming and helpful. Located on a quiet suburban road in the hills behind Hastings, the guesthouse was a hidden gem. The room and, more broadly, the whole house is superbly decorated, really living up to it's theme. There are many... More

Unaware when booking that this is a medieval themed guesthouse and so it turned out to be a great pleasant surprise. It was extremely well decorated, extremely clean, comfortable bed and a great breakfast. Easy to find car parking space.

My first ever stay in a B&B. Phill and Michelle are great hosts who take the time to speak to you and find out how best to help you. Michelle's directions ensured I was able to get around easily when I usually get lost between the front door and the footpath. Make sure you use the map she gives you.... More

Unusual and quirky but extremely enjoyable stay. The room was lovely, the bed comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Friendly hosts and a delicious breakfast. The taxi firm recommended provided a friendly, efficient and reasonably priced service too.

From the time we arrived to the time we left, nothing was too much trouble for mine hosts Michelle and Phill. The room was very comfortable with a lovely bed and exceptional quality of bedding and towels. The range of complimentary toiletries was extensive and it was easy to see that much thought had gone into them. Everything was so... More
