We just got back from a pre-Christmas weekend in Hastings, first time to visit the town and it was fantastic. Swan House was the perfect place to stay, Brendan was a very accommodating host and the house itself is great -- it's very much like a boutique hotel experience except with the personal touch of a B&B. We loved meeting his adorable dogs Matilda and Daisy (but if you are not a dog person don't worry you don't have to meet them). Bed extremely comfy and had top-notch linens; loved little touches like the chocolate treats on offer and the fire, plus morning papers. Breakfast is wonderful -- on our second morning we opted to go off menu and just get some bacon sandwiches, they were the best bacon sandwiches I've ever eaten! The location is absolutely perfect for exploring old town Hastings and Brendan has great recommendations for everything from restaurants to pubs to takeaway fish & chips. Definitely want to return to Hastings and to Swan House one day.
