Reviewed 30 January 2012

We've had a pretty stressful time recently (job-front, moving house, kids), so my wife and I decided to treat ourselves to a weekend away. We have tried other places of late, but none have left a strong impression - they were neither good nor bad - just bland. The type of establishments you forget in 5 minutes. So off we went to Hastings House, the rationale being its not let us down in the past and has always been memorable.
What a splendid decision! Everything is as we remembered it - great rooms, fab views, charming and attentive hosts, scrumptious breakfasts. Even the weather favoured us, it being sunny with a fresh, bracing nip in the air. Lovely strolls to Hastings Town, all that sea air sets up the appetite a treat!
Seng and Elizabeth certainly know about hospitality, and they have been consistently excellent over the years. This was our first time this year, I daresay it won't be our last. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Enjoy this locale, stressed out city person, because you deserve it!

Room Tip: If available, pay a little extra for the sea view rooms. If you like baths, definitely book room 6...

I stayed at Hastings House in September 2011 and couldn't fault it. I arrived very late on a Sunday night without being able to confirm my booking, was met by Seng who helped me to park, carrried my bags upstairs and offered me a complimentary wine. The room was beautiful as were the delightful breakfasts that followed. The place is spotless and the atsmosphere very relaxed. I had travelled from Australia to Italy, and then on to Hastings and can say that this was the most pleasant stay of the journey. Regards to Seng, Elizabeth and the gorgeous Dusty

We arrived at 4pm and were welcomed with coffee and biscuits, before going up to our room, room 5. The room is stunningly decorated and has lovely views out to sea; the bed is large and comfortable, and the shower room immaculate. What more can I say!

Breakfast was also pretty good; we are vegetarian and they catered very well for us. My only slight criticism is that the breakfast is a little small, but it does not stop me from giving them 5 stars.

Room Tip: There are three sea facing rooms; 3, 5 and 7. I think these are probably the best.

My husband and i have just returned from staying the night at Hastings House and will be looking at booking up again and taking our daughter. We stayed in room 6 which had the biggest bath i have ever seen in it. The room was lovely and couldn't find any faults at all. We would certainly recommend staying there and we can't wait to go back. The breakfast was fantastic and cooked to perfection with lots to choose from. Seng and Elizabeth were fantastic hosts and really made you feel welcome, their passion shines through. A very big thank you to them and not forgetting Dusty who is adorable and superbly behaved.

Room Tip: We had room 6 which is at the top of the house, lots of stairs but well worth it, lovely room and no...

When two of us arrived at the Hastings hotel we were impressed with the wonderful decor and warm welcome. We were offered a complimentary drink of our choice during the helpful informative talk about the surroundings and where to park. The bedroom was well contained, neat and very inviting. The shower was powerful and the breakfast superb. Well done to the owners.

Room Tip: Higher floors if you are light sleepers

We had a lovely time at Hastings House for our anniversary. We arrived late on Friday and we're welcomed heartily by Seng and Dusty with a glass of wine (very welcome). Our room was lovely - compact but perfect with an amazing freestanding bath. The breakfasts both days were delicious. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return for a little bit of old-school seaside glamour.

Room Tip: We were at the top of the house with a brilliant free standing bath.
