I was greeted at the door by the very friendly Anil, Senlac Guest House director, and his French employee, who was kind enough to carry my heavy luggage up to my room on the third floor. (And let me practice my Quebecois French with him!) I had opted for a non-ensuite but photographed the ensuite rooms during my stay, and will consider this for the next visit. My single room was spacious and immaculate, equipped with a sink, a small fridge and a lovely view of the street. They also provided me with a kettle to make tea and coffee, and delicious ginger stem cookies! The bathroom/shower located across the hall was a little cramped but sufficient. Internet was initially sketchy but they managed to improve it during my 3 night stay.
Senlac is perfectly located- a local let me know about the Brassey Steps, leading down to the Town Centre and the beach, a shortcut just to the right of the hotel and around the corner. It is under renovation and could be easily missed, but worth finding. An interesting collection of eclectic shops are at its base! Senlac was also a short 10 minute walk from the train station- a huge plus! I found a great local on the same street as the Brassey Steps- The Dripping Well, which is run by a charming ex-Londoner, Nick, and frequented by very friendly Hastings residents! Beside it is a rock bar with live music, which came recommended but I didn't have time to go. The bars are close enough to enjoy but far away enough to preserve quiet for a peaceful night's sleep!
