Stayed here for valentines weekend in the Bali room, the room was lovely dined in the restaurant which was also lovely. Would stay again. Managed to get parked outside the hotel but had to pay but was only a tenner.

We couldn't have asked for a better venue to see in my husbands 30th. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. We had room service to our room from the Pier Nine restaurant which was just divine and just what the doctor ordered. My only comment would be the sound from the jukebox, I understand it can't be loud but I could hardly hear it. However, I am sure if I had asked the lovely Max to turn it up a notch he would have done.
The bath was incredible and the bed was so comfortable too! Hastings itself has a certain charm to it however, we didn't really leave the hotel!! We played mini golf but was straight back to have a very long lunch downstairs. It really felt like we were on holiday! We will return there soon, especially as they are restoring the pier too!

We checked in to "India" on a last minute whim for Easter. It was the only room they had left and it's one of the not-so-good ones, with no sea view. We loved the room nonetheless. It's India without being an overdone pastiche, just tastefully done. The bed was lovely, so was the bathroom. We'd have cheerfully stayed another night if they'd had a room left for us to stay in.

Breakfast, which we had in the room, was well presented and delicious. We ere overjoyed that they cater for veggies without fuss, soya milk and all, and no need to make special arrangements. Everything we asked for the previous night just arrived, precisely on time, and with a smile. Really, it was that good.

The staff are lovely and very much seem to like working there.

Room Tip: Sadly, you have to turn a blind eye to much of the rest of the seafront road, and the area in genera...

That got your attention didn't it? I could write a terrible review of the Zanzibar but it would be a great work of fiction. I can only report the facts. My wife and I stayed 3 nights in Antarctica and quite possibly had our best ever stay in a hotel.Fantastic style and furnishings, fantastic food, inc 1 dinner, fantastic service and pretty much fantastic everything.. A wonderful place to stay to chill out and be well looked after. Just got to try all the other rooms now.

Room Tip: Antarctica has a stunning sea view

We both travel regularly and get taken to some pretty swanky places but after a 1 night stay at Zanzibar we both said this was one of the best places we have ever stayed.

It's not that the hotel is particularly beautiful - it's a large townhouse effectively right on the sea- it's what they have managed to do with the space (a gorgeous little garden area at the back, a well-appointed restaurant) and the level of attention to detail. From the well stocked minibar (Sancerre & gin & tonic with a lime for slicing) to the incredible champagne breakfast which comes as part of your nightly rate- this is how hotels should be run. Jason took our booking and met us when we arrived- very funny and charming.

Free, fast wi-fi and a great big shelf of DVDs (including The Life of Brian) they really have thought of everything. We stayed in India which isn't sea facing but it didn't take away from the experience.

Nice work guys.

Wow - what a gem!

I normally would not choose Hastings as a place to stay but forget about that and visit this wonderful boutique hotel!!

From the start we were warmly welcomed, comp drink, lots of info.

The rooms are beautiful - we stayed in the Moroccan which was to die for - only criticism would be more space for using the complimentary tea/coffee area, larger sink but we are scraping the barrel here.

It is a real oasis and once inside or In the garden you could be anywhere in the world !!

The relaxed but stunningly designed restaurant was fab and the food top notch - nothing was too much trouble - This hotel should go on your bucket list !! Thank u :)

Had a fantastic overnight stay in the "Africa" room. Arrived to be greeted by genuinely friendly staff that were helpful and accommodating, we then had a superb lunch, the peppercorn sauce was to die for, the restaurant itself is very classy. The spa bath was very romantic and the bed extremely comfortable. Breakfast was a feast, the best we have experienced. Then upon departure we met the max, who was charming and very helpful, cannot recommend this highly enough, cant wait to go back

Room Tip: Africa was very comfortable and stylish
