    Was good value for a sea front hotel

    It was showing a few signs of age

    Very helpful staff

    Scaffolding blocked seaview, but staff agreed to change our room for one with no scaffolding.

  • Group of friends

    Good location, decent size room and novelty of having the bathroom on a different floor...that was quite funny.

    Being rudely awoken on Saturday morning at 8 o'clock by builders banging scaffolding and shouting outside my bedroom window. It is a hotel, not a building site...Jesus wept! I did call down to reception after my initial request to the workmen was met with a mixture of indifference and scorn. Oh yeah, and your lift is rubbish.

    Perfect location and lovely rooms

    Everything was just fine with the hotel until we came back to the bar after being out celebrating a 50th birthday. We were keen to have a few nightcaps back at the hotel bar, but had to find someone to serve us for one round of drinks and then couldn't find anyone else after that. There were about 10 of us and the bar could have made quite a bit that night if we'd had the opportunity to buy a few rounds.

    All rooms different, and generally large. Retains it's original Victorian grandeur.

  • Family with children

    The rooms we stayed in were 1 family and 1 twin and both were very spacious and comfortable and very clean. Both rooms had a sea view which was very special.

    The only problem 1 of the rooms was like a sauna it was so hot.

    Pleasant and good sized rooms.

    We did not enjoy the cooked breakfast. The baked beans were soggy, mushrooms unpleasant, bacon too salty.

  • Older travelers

    Very comfortable, ideally placed, view. Staff pleasant and helpful. Location, etc, etc. good value

    I can't comment on the restaurant since I didn't eat there. Breakfast was good An evening meal in the Piano Bar was poor and poor value.

    Good location, huge room for what we paid so excellent value for money.

    Bathroom needed a good clean and updating lots of mismatched furniture just starting to look a bit tired.

    Informal atmosphere spacious room good facilities helpful staff

    Lack of reading material- no books, newspapers or magazines lift extremely slow to arrive and operate breakfast not included in room price

  • Older travelers

    We were really overwhelmed by the room when we first went in. It was a Deluxe Double Room with Sea View and consisted of 2 rooms, the lounge when you went in the door and through an arch the bedroom with onsuite bathroom. The location was lovely. Really easy to get to Hastings town centre but far enough away to be quiet and relaxed.

    The room didnt quite live up to first impressions - the sofa was not comfortable to watch TV on which was a shame as it was a lovely room to sit in and would have been lovely to have been able to sit back and relax. The bed was only 4ft 6 which for a deluxe room was very disappointing. We unfortunately picked a time when the hotel had work going on so the hotel front had scaffolding up and there was a huge skip full of mucky mattresses outside at the front. I understand the scaffolding had to be there, but the skip would have been better emptied as it didnt give a good expectation of the beds. We didnt have breakfast at the hotel as the cafe right opposite (and on the sea front) offered a great plateful for a third of the price with a lovely view to add.
