My husband and I spent two nights at Le Chateau Japonais last December 2007.
The hot spa in the Japanese garden makes it a worthwille trip! The wind was blowing but I still went to enjoy the spa, it was wonderful! My back ache was gone! We relaxed there as long as we wanted. In fact, the nice lady told us we could use it day or night!
The reception was very friendly, we even got some explanation on how to use the jacuzzi in our bathroom. We had fruits, cookies, coffee, hot chocolate and even green tea in our room. So no need to have breakfast outside. Then they had sky TV, where I got the French news we even enjoyed a French movie.
The room was decorated with good taste, and we even were shown the new upstairs luxury rooms with the Japanese toilet! But we prefered the downstairs room as we had direct access to the garden. The upstairs rooms are more suitable for young people!
For the parking, no problem. The owner has some parking vouchers in case we stay more than one night and there is plenty of parking in the street.
We wanted to have a Japanese dinner but no reservation was made, we have to ask in advance to allow the Japanese lady Kayoko to go to the fish market early in the morning. So we ordered dinner for the next evening. Kayoko is a wonderful cook, she specializes in sushi and together with all kind of fishes, it was delicious!
The town center is at 10 mn walk, as well as the beach of Hastings and the railway station.
We will most certainly go back there as soon as possible to enjoy a relaxing week-end far away from the noises of the big city.
