Everything about Swan House is excellent, without exception. The location (in the old town) is perfect for wandering around; the breakfasts are brilliant, the rooms are very comfortable and beautifully appointed and best of all, the staff are really friendly and cheerful. They'll do anything to make your stay great - advice on local attractions, providing refreshments or just having... More

We read a review of Swan House and on the back of it booked up a weekend away in Hastings old town, staying 2 nights in the Artisan Room. It was a joy and a delight. Everything the other reviewers have said is exactly the case: the decor; comfort; quality; breakfasts; location. And the welcome and hospitality from Brendan and... More

The Swan House was a truly pleasurable experience. It's location is central to old town and the castle. The decor was very well done and comfortable, not too fussy as many B&B establishments are. The street was quiet and there were many non- tourist places to eat. But most notably was the warm welcome we received from the outset. Brendan... More

Stayed for a week while in Hastings on business and the staff there was great. Even on a rainy English day the staff was full of sunshine. Everything about my stay worked out very well. Internet was good and if the weather permits breakfast on the patio is very nice.

I’ve been coming to Hastings for years and it’s the first time I’ve discovered the gem that is the Swan House. We were there for our wedding anniversary and warmly welcomed by Brendan on arrival. He and his staff couldn’t do enough for you. We were in the Garden Room which led onto a little courtyard where we were brought... More

We had the most magical stay at Swan House, it's the most beautiful property and Brendan was the ultimate host, I honestly can't fault it one bit, my only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer! Breakfast in the garden courtyard was superb, we have raved about it daily since! Can't wait to visit again!

We were welcomed with refreshments by Brendan's super friendly staff and immediately felt we were on holiday. Carnival week concluded during our stay and was great fun ending with fireworks. Parking and restaurants/pubs etc. were under considerable pressure at this time. We stayed in the Garden Room which was light and airy when the double doors leading on to the... More

A great stay. Incredibly comfortable room and a very friendly welcome. The breakfast was delicious with high quality ingredients and very nice extras. Swan House is in such a good position in the old town with lots of things in easy walking distance. Brendan, the owner, has good recommendations for places to visit and where to eat.

My brand new husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding. The room was beautiful and all the little touches in the room made it feel extra special. Brendan was a wonderful host and we had a lovely morning with a fabulous breakfast - the perfect morning to start our new life together! Everything about our stay was... More

Absolute gem. Everything about this place was stunning. The building itself, being a several hundred year old house was fantastic. The location is excellent with a short walk taking you into the heart of Hastings Old Town. A large comfortable lounge with an ever burning open fire is available for guests. The rooms are very comfortable and provided with luxury... More
