St Leonards Conquest Hospital

hi

we need to go to this hospital in Oct, we are planning to go to Hastings from London via train.

May I ask whether there are taxi easily available near the train station or public transport ( perhaps bus) for us to go to the hospital?

also we are planning to stay @ Travelodge Hastings, can we walk to the hotel from the train station? is this hotel within walking distance to the town centre as we do not have car. thanks

Hastings, United...

1. Re: St Leonards Conquest Hospital

There are several buses that run to the conquest hospital from either Hastings or St Leonards Warrior Square Station - two that i know of are the 26 and the 100 (wave). If you are travelling to the hospital straght from the station i would recommend getting off at Hastings rather than St Leonards as the bus stop is right outside the station (there is a mini bus station at Hastings station) whereas the stops are slightly harder to find from St Leonards.

The 26 is more frequent (approx 6 buses an hour - though not sure whether it runs on sundays) but the 100 is slightly quicker (but there is only one bus an hour).

The travelodge is located approxiamtely half way between Hastings and St Leonards WS Station, the walk is only about 10 minutes but as in much of Hastings the walk is steeply uphill. The quickest routes are also slightly through a labyrinth of back streets so you might get lost (the quickest way from Hastings station involves walking through some woodland!). Both stations have taxis out front and the taxi fare to the travelodge would be fairly cheap from either station (£3-4 max) with probably no difference in price between Hastings and WS (there will be more taxis at Hastings station as it is the main station).

If you are travelling to the hospital from the travelodge the 100 passes just outside so it should be straightforward to go from there to the conquest (but you would need to check the timetable as there is only one bus an hour).

Thank you SanLeonardoDelMar for such quick reply

one of our travel companion has to be there for work, so I cannot decide whether we should stay near the hospital - Premier Inn Hastings or Travelodge Hastings ( this one has got terrible review!, but perhaps its better to stay near the to the stations?)

Good to hear that we can get taxis, we most likely will do that

if we stay @ Premier Inn Hastings, do you think its easy to walk to the hospital or we can get taxis, perhaps the hotel is able to arrange for us?

how much do you think the taxi from station to the premier inn hastings or nearby the hospital? there are 3 of us with luggages?

Thank you so much for your help

The Premier Inn is much closer to the hospital but quite far to walk - 20mins+ on what is effectively a busy ring road). A taxi from the premier inn to the hospital would be cheaper than from travelodge, but set against that, the premier inn is on the on the edge of the town and a long way from either of the two main stations (probably nearer to Battle station) so it would be an expensive taxi ride from the station. It is also in a bit of a public transport blackspot with no regular bus services passing close by. For that reason i would probably not choose to stay there if i didnt have a car.

re: the reviews: Both premier inn and travelodge are fairly no frills budget hotels and pretty much similar wherever you go, there are far nicer places to stay in Hastings but you can generally get much cheaper deals at the travelodges/premier inns and if you are not staying for a holiday and dont mind some dated decour they are probably fine (They are both set back off main roads and away from nightclubs etc. so will probably be fairly quiet).

If you want to stay close to either of the stations there are lots of options close to both Hastings and St Leonards WS station (see trip advisor reviews for more details - but ones with good reviews... near St leonards WS station include the Cloudesley, Zanzibar, Hastings house, and near Hastings station... Black Rock House, White Rock hotel, Senlac Guest House, Phoenix Guest House)
