Fantastic friendly service, clean beautifully stylish rooms, very generous breakfast that consisted of fruit platter, coffee, freshly squeezed fruit juice, toast etc but that's just to start with, there was then choice of cooked breakfast as well, we felt thoroughly spoilt and looked after. Highly recommended. Parking in the quiet street was no problem and free.

We stayed for one night in the 4 poster room and can honestly say there was nothing that could of been done better. The host was friendly, generous and eager to please without being invasive. The breakfast was top class (I'd highly recommend the bacon, mushroom, cheese and fig omlette!), from the freshly squeezed orange juice to the selection of... More

My husband and I stayed at the Cloudesley guest house for 2 nights and we're very impressed with the high standard of service, breakfast and super decor. It was lovely to stay in a place with so much individual character- an antidote to all things mass produced and homogenized. I would highly recommend this guest house. Thank you!

Beautiful B&B. The staff was very warm and welcoming. The English Breakfast was delicious each morning. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the shower was awesome. My wife and I stayed for four nights and very much enjoyed it. We would recommend anyone traveling to Hastings to check it out!

The place is in a nice residential road. We received a very warm welcome, you feel a real interest in the well being of the guests. The design is a bit quirky. Everything is spotless. We had a very nice and large room, the bathroom was a bit small but well appointed. The breakfast is excellent, delicious fresh fruit plates,... More

If you are looking for something a little bit different try the Cloudesley. We absolutely loved it. It's more than a beautiful place to stay, it's the whole experience that sets it apart. Shahriar, the owner, is wonderful. The house is stunning and the breakfast is exceptionally good. Thank you, we smiled all the way home. Look forward to coming... More

A warm friendly welcoming stay from start to finish. Beautiful and stylish rooms and a host who genuinely showed interest in his guests. Breakfast was inventive with a selection of exotic fruits and impromptu menu options. We will be coming back. Thank you!

This was our second visit to the Cloudesley this year, having visited in March for just one night we were keen to return for a weekend. It's a beautifully interior designed property with great attention to detail and both rooms we stayed in were special, from the carefully curated books and photographic prints to a choice of flavoured coffees.
