Without exception the most comfortable bed I’ve slept in for a decade. This may appear slightly trite - but it is after all 50% of a ‘bed and breakfast’. And the other 50% - the breakfast - was excellent too. We had one very small problem on arrival with the bath hot water not being hot, which was quickly sorted and a late check out offered by way of an apology. Location is great, Karen and Ian very friendly. Highly recommended. And get yourselves down to Maggie’s fish and chips while you’re here.

Thank you Jamie for a great review, what with brexit and winter it was quite a comfort reading it. Hope to see you again in the spring and summer months when Karen has implemented a new menu and fresh bits for the rooms. Kindest regards Malcolm

I loved our stay here. The rooms are nicely decorated and the staff is wonderful and friendly. Hastings is a wonderful seaside town to walk around in. The Laindons is a charming B&B. I highly recommend you get the blueberry pancakes at breakfast.

Room tip: Don't stay anywhere else. They have a large selection of DVDs to borrow to watch in the evening if you want a quiet night.

We stayed in the Yellow Room which was beautifully furnished and decorated. It had a big bay window facing the hillside sloping up to East Hill Country Park. The bed was large, very comfortable and with high quality linen. There was a lovely bathroom with a corner bath and shower. Lots of luxury toiletries including bubble bath which you don't often get and which I really appreciated. The room and bathroom were spacious, light and airy. As the sun went down all the houses on the hillside and the top of the hill went a red colour. A lovely sight.

Everything had been thought of - there were snacks on the landings and in the lounge for guests to help themselves on an honour system. There was a fridge with fresh milk and cold drinks. Also lots of board games, books and DVDs to borrow.

In the room we had delicious home made cookies, very good quality real coffee and Simon Coll chocolate sardines. Simon Coll is an little known but excellent chocolatier. A very nice touch!

We ate dinner at a very nice local fish restaurant on the recommendation of Karen, one of the owners.

Breakfast was in a light, garden type room on the side of the house with windows all around. We had the homemade granola with fruit and bacon, avocado and poached egg on toast. It was all delicious and was really fresh, high quality ingredients perfectly cooked.

OMG, what a wonderful review I have just read it five times and to this date the explanation of the view from the window has never been put in writing such an eloquent way. Please, please come and stay in Spring or Summer with an extra 10% off for being such lovely people.Kindest regards Malcolm

This review is the simplest we've ever submitted. Previous reviewers have not exaggerated the lovely rooms, the marvelous welcome or the care and interest of the hosts. We were greeted by Ian who took our bags to our room and set us up with parking permits. In the mornings Karen welcomed us to breakfast and nothing was too much trouble. Simply the best B&B we could have chosen.

The Laindons is a true gem: wonderfully quaint, fabulously comfortable, exceptionally welcoming - and with delicious breakfast. A treat for a significant birthday, the weekend surpassed all our expectations including our three teenagers’, who loved all the little touches (movies, sweets on the bed, quality toiletries). The owners have put heart and soul into this beautiful Georgian house and it shows; the common areas were straight out of a design magazine, the rooms lovingly and individually decorated, and the tables laid with luxury linen. Tips for local activities (cliff walk with funicular ride, art gallery, crazy golf, old town walk) were spot on and the dinner recommendation just perfect. We were even given beach towels to borrow after we’d already checked out, and some prosecco (and soft drinks for the kids), served on a tray, to celebrate the big birthday! Special mention to Ian and Amanda who could not have been more helpful if they’d tried (despite our late arrival). We will most certainly be returning!
