We stayed at the hotel as a family group of five adults (3 rooms) over the weekend of 28th and 29th May 2016. The hotel is situated in a residential area of St. Leonards (Hastings), fairly close to St. Leonards Warrior Square mainline station. There are approximately ten car parking spaces off-road at the hotel, and if these are full, there are usually free spaces in Pevensey Road outside. This is not a particularly busy road during the day, and is relatively quiet at night. You are within easy walking distance of the Sea Front, but Hastings district is quite a hilly area if a person has limited mobility. Buses regularly run from the Sea Front to a bus stop over the road from the Hotel.
This AA rated 3 Star hotel is recognisable by the two eagle statues over the entranceway, and is a small (estimate under 20 rooms) hotel with it’s own restaurant, and bar area. Reception, Bar and restaurant areas are pleasant, clean and well maintained. We had two rooms on the second floor, and both of these had been recently re-decorated, and re-carpeted. Our third room was on the first floor, and this was due for refurbishment with decor and paint needing a refresh. The carpet looked fairly new, and all rooms were warm and clean. The rooms had a variety of furniture from different eras, and although functional, a more uniform look would have enhanced the overall impression. All our rooms had en-suites comprising wc, wash hand basin, and shower compartment. These too were clean and functional.
Our room faced the front of the building, and although we left our windows open slightly at night, we were not disturbed by outside noise. I found the bed to my liking, not too hard compared to some places I have stayed, and all our rooms had a flat screen tv, and tea / coffee making facilities. The rooms were serviced once a day during our stay.
The Apple Tree restaurant area is pleasant and service was brisk for the two breakfast meals we had. There are a variety of cereals, and a full English breakfast on offer, as well as other items. The food was of good quality and well cooked. The restaurant floor is split level, and do mind the step as both myself and another guest nearly came to grief because the change in level is not clearly marked and tends to blend in.
If you are a disabled guest the hotel staff will try to accommodate you I’m sure, but please be advised that there is no lift or step free access to the upper floors. All the hotel staff we saw were friendly and helpful. All in all we had a pleasant weekend stay, and would return if we visit the area in the future.

Room Tip: If accessability is an issue, then ground floor rooms would be best.

Although the hotel has undergone a make over realistically it only papers over the cracks, areas of damp around the Windows, wall paper coming away from the walls.
New modern bathrooms that do not have anywhere for you to place your toiletries in the shower or around the wash hand basin is not practical
Over a very busy bank holiday weekend the Manager although very good at his job was mostly MIA as he had far too much to do
Our superior double room at £100 per not is definitely not value for money
The cleaners need a wake up call, hairs around the toilet, in the shower, carpets very tired & dirty. Not sure they know how to dust
Overall not a hotel I would revisit, however the area is beautiful and lovely staff.

We stayed 1 night as visiting Hastings for the opening of the pier!,so wanted a hotel within walking distance and parking. It was clean and comfortable apart from creaking head board and no hairdryer!! But otherwise quiet hotel and friendly staff.

We stayed 2 nights at this delightful hotel, the staff were very helpful and had good knowledge of the area, on site carparking is A plus for me. breakfast was more than adequate, plenty to choose from.
Our room was clean and tidy and new towels everyday.

Clean, normal sized room with shower. Breakfast uninspiring. Hotel building pretty and clean but still has a long way to go to give you a stay to remember. I would return probably hoping that they had employed someone to act front of house.

Room Tip: Some superior rooms(I didn't understand why) are under the restaurant so very noisy in the early morning, and are in the basement.
