Me and my partner visited this hotel for my birthday meal. I have visited several 5 star establishments both hotels and resturants and this was up there with the best of them. We only ate there but the atmosphere was extremely relaxed so you can actually focus on the fact that you are eating amazing tasting food. From the decor to the lighting and music I would highly reccommend this resturant.

Well we wanted a few days in Hastings in a boutique hotel, The Zanzibar is just that, I think it's got 8 rooms all with different names, and each very individual. We were in Manhatten it was an apartment, with a lovely Buddha sat in the hall, a lovely bath and the water to fill it came from the ceiling, a huge very comfortable bed, a juke box, and a coffee table with goldfish swimming in it. There is a huge choice for breakfast you fill a form out the night before saying what you want at what time, if you want it in the dining room or your room, and what newspaper you would like this is under your door at 8.00am with a printout of that days weather, and ideas as to what to do for the day. Max the owner is so young but a very clever business man, and very nice with it, helpful, and knows his stuff, I can't recommend the Zanzibar strongly enough, you have to go, the restaurant is Piernine I will review that under restaurants all very impressive.

Room Tip: Manhattan, Something Else.

Nothing but praise. Staff lovely, we were offered DVDs and books to borrow apron arrival, along with a nice glass of cava. Room was awesome! Food was impeccable and there is a lovely garden area. Breakfast in bed was the best experience I've had in a hotel it is brought right to your room on huge trays to eat in bed, the room is such a high standard could not find any fault. I am going to go back there soon...and I live 10 minutes from the hotel. Its not about the location it's all about the experience. Incredible. Truly.

Room Tip: Each room is themed....check which ones to your fancy. We stayed in Morocco room which had a mezzanine. Amazing.

We stayed in the Japan room for our anniversary and the whole experience was amazing! We were personally greeted by the owner, Max, and he and all his staff could not do enough for us. We ate in their restaurant, Pier Nine and again the food was fantastic. The personal touch of the staff fully compliment the boutique style of the hotel. We will definitely be back and advising all our friends to go.
