The Sea Spirit Guesthouse
Ranked #17 of 47 Hastings B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2013

The rooms were lovely, and and really clean. Tony and Lorraine were fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was really nice, and a good choice of menu. The beds were really comfortable, plenty of space in the room. Also plenty of coat hangers in the wardrobe. Off street parking was a bit of a put off. But we could always get a space. So not that much of a problem.

We stayed here for two nights from the 19th July looking for some respite from looking after a parent who is not well and had a really lovely time. The house is amazing, Tony is a perfectionist which shows in the decor which is first class and in very good taste throughout. The room was spotless, the bed and pillows very comfortable, and the breakfast was the best we have ever tasted. There is plenty to do and see in hastings we found it a very interesting place to stay, the old town and fishing area are great and the walks on both the West and East side of the old town are lovely. We highly recommend the Sea Spirit Guesthouse.

We stayed here one night after a very long flight from Australia. The house was clean and beautifully decorated. Tony and Lorraine were great hosts and served a very good breakfast. We were not keen on the street parking. Maybe because we are not use to having such small streets with so many cars parked on them. With a bit of moving of the bins Tony helped us park the car in the small section in front of the house. Thanks Tony.

It soon became very clear to us that bothTony and Lorraine love the B&B business. The care they have taken to create a wonderfully welcoming house was clear from the moment we stepped inside and were greeted by Lorraine. The house is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated yet still retaining a homely feel. Our room at the back of the house was very quiet and comfortable with a view over the garden. An excellent choice of breakfast options freshly prepared by Tony and a never ending coffee pot to help ourselves to. What could be better? There is a small parking area at the front of the house which may just about hold two small cars but we left ours on the road immediately outside for the duration of our stay with no problem at all. For an added bonus there is also an excellent traditional pub called the Dripping Spring just a few minutes walk away. Well worth a visit as they serve very good food at more than reasonable prices.

Highly recommended and if we go back to this area will definitely make The Sea Spirit our first choice.

Thank you Lorraine and Tony for a brief, but very enjoyable stay.

A beautifully decorated Victorian house, very clean, comfortable and romantic even! Lorraine and Tony gave us a very warm welcome and immediately made us feel at home. Delicious breakfasts made from locally produced products - and you can really taste that! Tony gave us straightforward directions to get everywhere we wanted and Lorraine advised us on where to go.
No street noise and easy parking.
Our stay at the Sea Spirit Guest definitely enhanced our delightful four day stay in Hastings.

We stayed here one Saturday night while attending a family get-to-gether. The place was really clean, beds comfortable and road very quiet, so we all got a good nights sleep. All the rooms were large and well equipped. The couple were friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts really great with a good variety (kippers, salmon, continental, veggie or full fry-up). Would definitely recommend or re-visit when in the area. Our only concern were the stairs, as we were travelling with some elderly relatives who struggled a bit with them.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have the rising sun and at the front the setting sun.
