Reviewed January 18, 2014

It advertises as in a residential area but it was all flats and very run-down. No where to park either and we honestly did not feel safe in this area. We walked to the sea-front (about 15 minute walk) and were hassled first by some drunks then passing Warrior Square by a gang of kids. Got a taxi back and driver told us its not the kind of place to walk about after dark but this was in the day!! Check out was very early we thought, rooms dated and chintzy, bar poorly stocked. We thought we were going to a nice Victorian country house type place but SO disappointed. Wont go back.

Room Tip: Research area and parking before you go.

Lovely clean room.

Relaxed about check-out times.

Honesty bar.

Decent all round.

I note that the hotel is up for sale - I hope that the next owner keeps the present inucmbents relaxed and welcoming style.

Room Tip: The four poster bed room was cool!

This privately owned hotel is in St Leonards a shortish walk from the centre
Of town in a quiet street.
It is a lovely quiet hotel, complete with garden views and a beautiful cat.
Louise went out of her way to ensure my stay was relaxed and my breakfast was just lovely.
A welcome break from the hustle and bustle of larger, noisy hotels

Room Tip: Any room but probably facing back.

Stayed last weekend with my husband. Will most definitely return again. We left feeling totally chilled and looked after. We found Louse and staff to be really friendly and accommodating. Room was clean and well equipped. We really enjoyed the breakfast, hubby enjoyed having biker chats with the chef.

Cheers everyone at the Tower

Stayed for one night. Partner is from St Leonards and for various reasons we needed a room for one night. Location ok - 10-15 min walk from St Leonards Warrior Square station, short car ride into Hastings centre.

'Enjoy England' gives the B&B a 4* rating. As we were concerned it deserved three stars - there is nothing special enough to give it four.

Rung buzzer twice for woman to come and open door (no idea who she was). She opened reception and checked us in. Had she taken us to a room up the staircase which is next to reception, maybe our stay would have been better. Instead, she gave us a ring with four (yes, four) keys on it, and took us through the house, through the conservatory, through the garden and into what had obviously been a garage previously - with an unexplained catflap!

Every time we went out or came in, we had to look and unlock three or four doors and walk through the garden!

Room was bog-standard, bed was comfortable. Cobwebs very obvious, carpets and accessories functional but tired & worn.

Breakfast room and conservatory looked nice - nowhere to get a drink of water though, and no glass in the room. No staff presence at all. Garden itself very pretty.

Overall acceptable but wouldn't stay again.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 12 - it's the old garage at the side of the house! (You have to go outside to get to...

I read lots of good reviews on this 4 star rated hotel before booking. Although there was nothing really very wrong with this place I did not think that it deserved a 4 star. I have stayed in other hotels that are only rated 3 stars which I found better.
When we arrived there was no one to great us, infact our keys had been left in an enveloped pinned to the front door. We were only staying for 2 nights and only saw the owner on the last morning for breakfast as we needed to pay the bill.
The hotel was also advertised as having a bar but this was what was classed as an honesty bar, help your self and make a note of what you had pay later. Definitley not the social experience I was expecting.
The two other things that let it down for us was the breakfast room felt very cramped and we had the 4 poster and the mattres was so hard I did not get much sleep for the 2 nights so left feeling like I needed another holiday. If you like a hard mattress great if not pick another room.

Room Tip: front rooms can be noisy if you need to sleep with the window open as the road is used as a cut thro...
