Stayed for a long bank holiday weekend at the end of May and was thrilled to bits with everything. Check in was friendly, quick and easy with a complimentary drink and lots of info provided on the local area and where to eat etc. We pre-booked a parking space at an extra charge and this was well worth doing. Our room (No. 7 - top floor) was just stunning, huge and spotlessly clean (and I am VERY fussy about cleanliness). The bathroom was gorgeous and provided everything you needed, loads of towels and toiletries (we found bathrobes and slippers in the wardrobe too) and the rainfall shower was lovely. The room has stunning views over the sea and the gardens - fabulous!! Breakfast was so, so good. Mr B had the full English and I enjoyed the French toast and don't miss the toast and marmalade - yummy!! Overall, we were hugely impressed by Hastings House and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, in fact we already have to various family members. We will definitely book again, hopefully soon!

Room Tip: Room 7 has a fabulous sea view, lots of stairs up to it but worth every single one!

We very much enjoyed our stay at Hastings House. We were so well-treated, we would have liked to stay longer! I have a wheel chair and when I indicated that fact, Seng actually called me at home (Canada) to dioscuss how we could manage easily at his hotel. He even served breakfast in our room, so that I would not need to negotiate the stairs more than absolutely necessary. We appreciated the lovely room and the spectacular view of the sea. We also liked Dusty. We intend to return, when next we are in England.

Room Tip: We loved our view of the sea. The room was very quiet.

Absolutely stunning both decor wise and from the fantastic welcome you get from Seng, Elisabeth and Dusty!
The Room was so tastefully decorated and fabulously clean ( yes I did run my finger over the slats on the blinds and not a speck of dust to be found! )
Loved the little touches - the disposable slippers and the robes ( although my Partner is a beefy builder and he could only just get his arms in leaving the robe wide open at the front!!!)
Breakfast was delicious and so beautifully presented with the freshest of meat and fresh crusty bread.
Just one criticism - We were in Room 0ne and the open - plan en suite is rather a strange phenomenon - i.e no door to separate from your sleeping accommodation - not very pleasant as we had both had an Indian Feast in the Evening! Also, the way the picture on the wall is positioned the other person can see your reflection in the glass as you "finish your ablutions"!!!! Not a room for anyone private about being on the toilet! I am sure I am not the first person to comment on this. My Partner used the toilet on the landing as a consequence!

Room Tip: Don`t Book Room One if you like your privacy whilst using the toilet ( see above )

Hastings House is right on the sea-front. For someone like me, from the middle of the UK, it was a real treat to be so close to the sea. Seng and Elisabeth are a really inviting couple and made us feel very welcome without being intrusive at all. The bed was really comfortable and the blackout blinds were a great idea. I slept like a log! Breakfast was fantastic. A good choice for a B and B, more like a hotel really. The place was spotlessly clean. Couldn't find any fault and can't wait to find an excuse to go back sometime soon.
