We wanted to explore the old town in hastings but didnt want to stay in town. the tourist office recommended the Powdermills Hotel in Battle and it was good advice for what we wanted. The Powdermills is a georgian country house in an area of outstanding beauty. To reach the hotel, you have to drive over an old bridge with small lakes either side. we saw ducks and geese by the water having a splash. The reception staff were very efficient and friendly and we were shown to a 4 poster room with marbe bathroom at the back of the hotel with a country view. It was quite adequate for our needs. The downstairs public rooms are very elegant and i particularly enjoyed browsing through the many old books lining the library. This is a pet friendly hotel. The owners have two young springer spaniels and we also saw other well behaved dogs staying. This would not suit guests who have animal allergies. We dined that evening in the Orangery Restaurant which has a good reputation for its food. The restaurant is large and decorated in a georgian orangery style with marble floors, large plants and greek statues. In the centre of the room is a large fountain filled with fresh flowers. We enjoyed and excellent dinner and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Next morning, after a large freshly cooked breakfast we decided to go for a walk and explore the grounds. Unfortunately it started to rain so we postponed this until our next visit and headed to Hastings.
