I did not check in as I was not arriving until later but my partner praised the lovely service at check in and all the help he was given with regards to the parking, and even kindly offering an extended check out as they would not need to access the room. Although I did not meet the owners we have conversed by email to confirm check in time and they were very polite and helpful.
When I arrived at the room late (my travel options had been delayed arriving) we did find that the carpark where we had the permit until the next morning had closed (this was after 11pm so I do not know what time), however there were spaces along park of the road that only needed pay and display 9-6 so we were able to park and moved the car to the car park in the morning. Minor annoyance but certainly not the owners fault, just something to bare in mind for others planning to arrive back late by car.
Once inside however I was pleasently surprised for considering the price of £50 for an en-suite room in a very central location I was expecting to pay for the location and not the room. The room was beautifully and flawlessly designed with a lot of storage space and room to move about for two people. The only thing we didn't think to do was ask for the wi-fi password but there does seem to be the wi-fi there and next time I will remember to ask.
The bathroom was tiny, just a shower and a toilet with the sink in the main room, however I prefered the privacy of a tiny bathroom to shared facilities so have no complaints.
Regarding the cleanliness I could not complain at all, the whole place was spotless and there were the extras that you expect (spare toilet roll, enough towels, hand wash, hangers etc). The bedding was clean and felt almost new, the duvet was very comfortable (one complaint here was that it was so nice I was struggling to get out of bed), and the pillows were perfect for me.
Only two things to mention would be that we were not offered breakfast (we did not find this a problem as there are lots of cheap/good places in Hastings to go but if you are looking for a breakfast included this may not suit you) and that there was only a very small face mirror in the room. I would have appreciated a full length mirror if I was going out for a night but I say this only as a comment and definately not to put anyone off this lovely guest house.
Over all I think this is a lovely lovely place to stay and will be using it again.
