We have just returned after a two night stay for Hastings Pirates Day. We wanted somewhere close to everything including my sister's house in the old town. She had more family staying so couldn't accommodate us. Tracey made us feel very welcome from the initial booking email and throughout our stay. Accommodation was clean with good facilities and competitively priced....

brilliant handy location in the old town,despite the accomodation being in a lively spot,once the window was shut we got an excellent nights sleep.the room was spotless,bright and airy.you would be hard pressed to find a more varied breakfast menu(all cooked to perfection),and with those extra nice little touches,such as the freshly brewed coffee and home made rostis.would highly recommend!

Centraly situated with friendly helpful staff. Our room was a bit small but spotlessly clean and bright. The location could not be better. Excellent breakfast menu. We had the best tasting locally sourced Kippers. Very good value for money. Definitely worth a return visit.
