“Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Accommodation, views, communication and welcome pack all outstanding. A 50th birthday weekend with some friends started with our arrival to find Margaret (the owner) had decorated the accommodation and bought in some birthday cupcakes plus a bottle of bubbles.

I cannot express how fabulous gull's view was...it needs to be revisited!

“Lovely views of the sea”

person found this review helpful

This was a lovely get away break right on the sea front. I couldn't get enough of the amazing sea view from the living room it was so relaxing! I liked that it was quiet but still has lovely cafes and handy shops nearby. The apartment has everything you need and the decor and maintenance was great. Margaret and Steve were thoughtful and so welcoming. The lovely complimentary extras were also a nice touch. I would love to go back again one day. I'd recommend for couples or small families.

“Wonderfull”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

What a lovely flat, beautifully clean and tastefully furnished and with a view to die for! We were met by the owners who could not have been more helpful, even bagged us a parking spot to unload. Loved our week at Gulls View even on the days when the weather was bad the flat made up for it. Thank you!

I want to move in permanently! Felt at home from the minute I walked into Gull's View. Mesmerised by the ever changing sea. Bathed by the light in every room, and cocooned in a safe peaceful haven.
Great location, helpful caring owners Margaret and Steve and everything you could want for a holiday rental.

“All you could possibly need”
Reviewed May 13, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Gull's View. The flat is quiet, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with a wonderful view of the sea, made even more spectacular by the fact that it was very windy on a couple of days while I was there. Everything you could possibly need is provided, plus lovely little extras like the welcome basket. It is perfectly situated to enable you to reach all places of interest in the area by public transport - there are bus stops close by and the train station is just a 5-10 minute walk away (although you might like to take the bus if you have a heavy case as the first part of the walk to the station is uphill!). In particular, I would recommend the wonderful shower, very comfortable bed and free wi-fi. I can't believe I've lived so long and never visited Hastings before - I loved the old town and the Jack-in-the-Green celebrations, but there are also all sorts of other interesting towns, gardens and historical sites to visit within easy striking distance. At the risk of making it unavailable when I next want to book, I would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Liked best: The shower, comfortable bed and wi-fi. And, of course, the view.
Liked least: It would be nice if the little convenience store next door was better quality, but that's me being really picky and not in the control of the owners of Gull's View!

“Wonderful Sea View.......”
Reviewed April 18, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We enjoyed a lovely stay here over Easter Weekend, the reservation was quick and easy with immediate email responses from Margaret. We were met by Margaret and her husband who were very helpful and had kindly left us a lovely welcome hamper, thank you, we especially enjoyed the wine and Easter Eggs. The apartment is lovely, spotless, large with high ceilings and picture windows looking out to sea, in fact you think you are at sea. Great shower, comfy beds, wifi and a huge well kitted out kitchen. It's a good base for visiting the surrounding area, Rye, Camber Sands, Hastings Old Town has some amazing shops also Norman Road with its vintage and retro shops along with St Clements Restaurant is just around the corner, a visit to Webbes Rock a Nore is a must too. I wondered why there was a copy of a Banksy in one of the bedrooms, turn right along the seafront until you get to the Church and it's right there on the beach steps!!! We had a great stay thank you.
