The Laindons is a fantastic B&B. Sara has created a warm, homely place, that has a calm and comforting vibe. The decor is Scandi inspired by her time living in Stockholm (soft blankets, low level lighting, comfy furniture) and it makes you feel relaxed as soon as you walk in. The little touches, such as a well stocked honesty bar... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Laindons. Sara and Jon are excellent hosts and made us feel welcome straight away. The lovely Scandi/sea decoration makes the place feel very relaxing, everything seems to have been thoroughly thought of. Breakfast was delicious and we really loved the atmosphere overall. Proof that airbnb is not always the way forward! Thanks again... More

Had a relaxing two-night stay at the Laindons, which is in the perfect location in the Old Town. Sara was a great host - quick to reply via email and met us on arrival even though we were late on a Friday. Really clean, spacious rooms - the recycled bed frames are fab! So many lovely touches too - from... More

Sara and Jon have created a welcoming experience through their careful attention to detail from start to finish. It was easy to book, with great communication before and on the day of arrival. Our room (number 1) was light, spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed along with a great view. The small touches of the freshly ground coffee and... More

Located in Hastings High St, this boutique B&B offers clean and comfortable accommodation with some very nice touches, such as a home baked sponge left in your room for your afternoon return. A jar of sweets, fresh coffee, and an honesty box for alcoholic drinks and snacks. Wonderful range of breakfast available from blueberry pancakes to full English. Well worth... More

Beautifully themed and appointed room - very comfortable bed, good amenities, loved the bath tub. Such a quiet and relaxing place, but very close to all the hustle and bustle of Hastings. Breakfasts are great and the coffee is fantastic. Sarah is a wonderful host - happy to help with restaurant accommodations, taxi bookings, etc. Thanks so much for the... More

We booked the Laindons after finding it on the internet and it completely exceeded our expectations. Sara is a charming host who really makes you feel welcome. The Laindons is so stylish with lots of Scandi touches, the breakfast and coffee is superlative and the location is brilliant. I would thoroughly recommend this place and want to go back soon.

I have stayed at the Laindons my last two visits to Hastings and I will stay here whenever I return. The location in the old town is fabulous and as a coffee-loving Melburnian I could not be happier staying above No. 23 - where Jon serves up a couple of beautiful roasts. The rooms are tastefully decorated and beautifully light,... More
