Brendan is a very friendly host. He was there to welcome us when we arrived and make sure all our needs and questions were answered. There is a lovely sitting / dining room with 2 large sofas and a splendid fire to relax by. The bedroom was very comfortable but does have some quirks of a period house including WC...

A lovely property with a very welcoming host! Room was large and warm during a very cold period. Breakfast was lovely. Location for the work being done was ideal and a short walk to other amenities. Would stay again

Lovely! Stupendous location and service. Some fantastic attention to detail and customer service here. Amazing building, redefines a B&B, very pleased we stayed. This is an old historic building so not good if you have mobility issues, otherwise go there! Thanks!

An absolute gem of a place; from start to finish, Swan House B+B was simply perfect. Incredible location, beautiful interior, really friendly and helpful staff, gorgeous food including the most divine caramel and chocolate shortbread, comfy bed....the list goes on. Without a doubt I will be returning with my family for another Swan House experience.

Our wonderful south coast bolt hole. Swan House aims for excellence and then surpasses it, on every level. We are veteran 'weekenders' with our rule of thumb being, never revisit, as there are so many other establishments waiting to be discovered! Then we discovered Swan House and our philosophy was blown out of the water. We simply cannot stay away!...

We loved our visit to the Swan House and to Hastings in September-- a great jumping-off point for the southern England area. The B&B is charming, clean, cozy, and in a great location for being able to walk around the town. We stayed in the Renaissance room and wished the weather was a bit better to enjoy the terrace in...

Many thanks for your glowing review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. The Renaissance room is very special, having it's own private outside terrace. A perfect setting when the weather is fair for enjoying breakfast al fresco.

We couldn't have asked for more, lovely accommodation, location, host and breakfast. We would go back anytime and didn't want to leave. Great welcome with open fire, and gorgeous room. Such a great location and lots to explore in old town.

Brendan's B&B is exactly what I hope for: friendly, old building full of charm, beautifully appointed, great breakfast, familiar atmosphere. All the people there were helpful and friendly. We would definitely visit again.

My son booked this for us as a shared Christmas gift. What a pleasant surprise! The place is lovely. Older building restored with style and tastefully populated with an eclectic mix of artwork. The beds were comfortable with cloud-like comforters. Brendan and his business partner Lionel were helpful without being intrusive in any way. Breakfast was very good - good...

Swan House never disappoints. The house itself is gorgeous - so comfortable and stylish and Brendan is the most charming and friendly of hosts.
