Dont be put off by the lacklustre reception area. The rest is fine! Surprisingly pleasant hotel - Fantastic room, large, comfy, high ceilings, freshly painted walls. Awful flowered carpet though! Plenty of sockets, modern TV. Bathroom huge, but bath needed replacing as rusty in places. It was being done the next day. Whole hotel is gradually being refurbed. Yes it...

Wasn't really too sure what to expect from here, however it has been a pleasant surprise. The parking is very limited and the reception compact, however the Hotel itself is lovely. Right on the seafront and very much a grand hotel complete with wooden features & carpeted (v slow) lift. It's clear the hotel has had some investment, and also...

The hotel is in a great position on the sea front, though bear in mind it is in St Leonards, so not far from Warrior Square train station but about a mile from the centre of modern Hastings and further still from the old town. There is a very limited number of hotel parking spaces, but most of us managed...

Excellent value , the staff delightful & most charming at all times. Room was huge , but interior design stuck in about 1978 with mis matching floral soft furnishings. But comfortable and clean, please can you have iron in the room. Breakfast and evening meals of good standard, nice room overlooking the bay. All good we would go again

We loved room 211 with its sea view and spacious layout with comfortable furniture. Hotel itself offers character, Victorian period details in the Piano Bar and is in a good location on the seafront. I hate 'brand' hotels where every one you stay in looks the same: modern and soulless. This one was a refreshing contrast. Tea and coffee facilities...

welcoming hotel with lovely staff who go the extra mile to help. Sea facing rooms were lovely and huge! Had taken a group of 34 people there and everyone was happy. The chef unfortunately let the hotel down badly but gather he is leaving! Slightly dated but it is an older building. Beds very comfortable. Bus stops within a few...

OK so there may be some seagull pooh on a window or two, hard to avoid when you so close to the Beach. The floors may be a bit creaky and there may be a few chips in the paintwork but this is a Hotel with wonderful soul and character. Lovely friendly greeting from helpful guy at reception when checking...
