A lovely quiet stay in Victorian splendour.
Positives - Reception staff greeted us very warmly. The restaurant staff were very helpful and service was very good. The bedroom was massive with a comfortable large double. The evening meal was cooked and served well plus was not over priced. Breakfast choice good, plenty of it and not rushed. Not having to book out of the room until 11a.m. meant a nice lie in.
Negatives - although a bit picky still worth a mention; Some of the furniture had seen better days. Padding on the tables at mealtimes meant an uneven surface and we had to be careful where we put our glasses and cups. Some of the walls in the bedroom had very bad patches of stains/damp/marks (not really sure what they were). The curtains were very hard to pull and didn't keep all the light out of the room. Would suggest although quiet, booking a room away from the promenade due to traffic noise early in the morning.
Out of season, I personally would not take babies/toddlers/young children as very quiet and most of the guests were mature & senior citizens.
Overall a very nice hotel with some splendid ornaments and decorations inside, especially the open staircase between the ground floor and first floor. Excellent sea views and would book in again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back away from the promenade would be quieter

A lovely find, not at all what I was expecting. Large Victorian imposing with loads of nice internal features. Very quiet, very comfortable and a very good value breakfast. They also accept dogs. I'd highly recommend this hotel for visitors to Hastings.

Lovely hotel and very clean. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms a little dated but well sized. Hopefully staying here next year again with the family. An added bonus to have the dogs with us in the room too.

This hotel is right on the waterfront at Hastings and in its heyday would have been one of the best hotels in town. It is showing its age now, but it has a number of strong attributes. Firstly, the hotel staff make it their mission to please the guests and to provide service- such a refreshing approach these days. The bedroom we had was large, with creeky floors! It was clean as was the bathroom. There was a table with a kettle for tea/coffee (it could have been taller and wider to accommodate tea making) and the bathroom lacked a space to put toiletries for two people (there was enough space for one). Breakfast gave a choice of hot/cold food and the view from the windows in the dining room was beautiful. We could walk into town along the promenade and enjoy the sea breeze. Parking was problematic - OK if you secured a spot in front of the hotel, but if you were in parking across the street, you had to move the car early in the morning or pay for parking which is at a premium in Hastings.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea.

Stopped one night here with the dogs to try it out before a summer stay.
Lovely hotel and great staff.
Ended up having both evening meal and breakfast in it as well.
Will be back longer in the summer for sure.

Room Tip: nice big rooms, pet friendly, good food and service
