“Great relaxing weekend away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2012

Had a really lovely weekend, we were warmly welcomed by Yuliya who served us with tea and homemade cake on our arrival. We stayed in the Turret room which had everything we needed with a beautiful spacious bathroom. Lovely cooked breakfast with great choice. Lots to do in Hastings, we visited the beautiful nearby Alexandra park where we had a lovely walk and hot chocolate watching the squirrels. We enjoyed visiting the antique and local craft shops, and there were lots of tea shops and quaint pubs nearby. It made a lovely tranquil break for a few days out of our busy lives :-)

We stayed here for our 1st Wedding Anniversary after using the B&B as our base during our wedding last year. The service and room was excellent, nothing was too much trouble and we booked again for next year!

We would happily recommend this B&B to anyone staying in the area.

This was our third visit to black rocks, first time under the new owner. Unfortunately she was unwell but we were well looked after. Stayed in the turret room nice view and great bathroom. Clean well presented with a few nice little extras eg biscuits and a fridge. Breakfast was varied and lots of choice and well prepared.
All in all a nice stay.

Black Rock House is a beautiful B&B. Our room was spacious, clean, with many added extras (we stayed in Sea View -- actually had a view of the sea). The breakfast, with many choices, was delicious. The atmosphere was relaxed and serene. Yuliya was gracious and very helpful -- suggested two restaurants -- both were exactly how she described them, and the food was delicious in each. We completely enjoyed our visit to Hastings -- the old town and the walk to Fairlight along the Saxon Shore Way -- a few miles of rolling (lots of steep paths) wooded paths with great views of the channel (and a bus to get back to town).

Room Tip: Sea View was spacious and with a good view. Quiet street.

Written on behalf of my wife.

Being an avid tripadvisor user, my husband found this hotel for myself and a good friend to spend the weekend together.

My friend and I had advised the Blackrock that we would be arriving at about 21:30 and so they stayed until that time to let us in. We were shown to our room which was lovely and we were happy to the the little touches in place such as fresh milk in the fridge and not packets of long life milk for the tea nd coffee. There was also freshly baked biscottis for us to nibble on.

Breakfast in the morning was amaaaazing. We spent they out in Hastings and arrived to find that the B&B also had a DVD library, so we settled down to watch Pretty Woman,as you do!

All in all a fantastic two night stay and highly recommended.

Black Rock House is a lovely hotel, beautifully furnished, decorated and maintained. We had the room with two bedrooms and it was very quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was superb and one of the best we have had in any hotel. The ambience during the evening in the lounge/sitting room was lovely and was a perfect place for an end of the day cocktail (the hotel offers an honesty bar). The hotel is located a little way of the town up a hill so it is a bit of a walk if you want to get around. I struggled with giving a "Very Good" rating because it really should have been and "Excellent". However, it was a little thing (well maybe not so little) that irritated me and that was the rubber seal on the bottom of the shower screen was green with mould. It is such a simple thing to rectify and I wonder why it had not been noticed before. Other than that, a lovely place and we would stay here again.

Fantastic hotel where you are greeted as friends and it was a joy to stay here. The rooms are amazing, serviceis impeccable and fabulous breakfast. I heartily recommend this jewel!!! I have stayed here many times for work and look forward to returning. I agree that its more like a luxury hotel than a b&b.
