I chose this hotel as I was going to a concert at the White Rock Theatre - next door. Very convenient transport-wise! It's a way from the rail station and also from the town centre of Hastings (but you can walk along the promenade) - opposite the old pier which burned down a year or so ago. As I wanted to visit Battle also, it was easier to catch a bus from the hotel door which went right into the market place at Battle. One down side, as with all old hotels, are the creaking floorboards - everywhere. Sounded like a herd of elephants was on the move till late at night. The corridors were narrow and dark - sometimes you couldn't see well enough to find the keyhole in the door - during the day! Once inside, the rooms however were large, the bed comfy, extras like biscuits and hot chocolate offered - and the view from the window at the front of the hotel looked immediately onto the (pebble) beach. Was happy with my 2 night stay and used the restaurant twice. The first night I couldn't eat all I'd ordered and was permitted to take a tray to my room, which was nice. I would recommend the hotel but keep in mind the creaks.
