Not an easy place to find ...... Staff greeted us well and showed us to room one.... We were taken on a tour of the hotel ...... Interesting place but really could do with a very good clean.......
Room one had a japanese toilet and plunge bath ..... Good fun ..... But again could have been cleaner :( ..... The room had no mirror, a wardrobe you couldn't open and a throw you to the middle mattress ......
We had been asked what we wanted for breakfast and what time we would like it .... Sadly breakfast turned into something from a faulty towers episode ...... We came down at the appointed hour to find a bemused looking chap setting a couple of tables .... 10 minutes he says ... That's fine we say ....... 15 minutes later a loaf of frozen bread is rushed out and put by the toaster ......
Ummm toast but no butter ...... We wait another 10 minutes ....... Hot water pump thingy is brought out ..... We ask for butter ..... Make tea ...... No milk!!! ........Butter arrives ... We ask for milk ..... Told again breakfast will be ten minutes ...... Milk arrives in little uht pots :( together with 2 very flat eggs with broken yokes !!! ...... A while later a very reasonable full English arrives ... My partner and I decide to share whats been presented ...... The foods fine if 45 minutes late .....
The other couple who arrived 20 minutes after us then received two full English breakfasts which surprised them as one of them was a vegetarian ....... If you go here take your sense of adventure and humour .....

This B&B is excellent. The staff are lovely, breakfast is very tasty and they even asked us if we wanted more! Some of the details are on the verge of needing an upgrade, but the jacuzzi and Japanese toilet make up for it as does the heated outdoor pool. We had a lovely time and would recommend this to anyone who loves quirky little B&B's.

I stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting Hastings, not the easiest hotel to find,but we were greeted by a nice French man who spoke good English and showed us our room,and then took us for a tour of the hotel and the outside spa.The rooms were good sizes with giant baths and Japanese electric toilets! The bathrooms are big and finished very nicely,all in all a good night,and recommended if you fancy something a touch different..

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room,which was very nice and had a back door too from the bathroom.

I dont usually leave reviewsbut I think a lot of the reviews on here are unjustified.Me and my partner stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Honestly, there were some down sides, the room was quite small but we did only stay in a standard room. The breakfast was not the best but was sufficient, with the choice of full english, cereals and toast, and I get the impression that if i had asked for something specific, the staff wpuld have happily obliged.

Regardless of the size of the room, it was a lovely room. The jacuzzi bath was lovely and big, hence the reason it takes a while to fill, but so worth the wait! And the tv was able to turn to face the jacuzzi, a lovely touch. The mattress was lovely, and I had three fantastic nights sleep.

The pool was gorgeous, very warm and relaxing. The staff were also lovely, and very helpful and the hotel was very close to the seafront ans town centre, 10 mins walk max. Overall, I would strongly recommend this b&b, lovely, relaxing, really couldn't have asked for much more. The rest of the reviews on here are very niggly, and after staying I dont find any of them to hold much truth. Do not be put off!

We don't regret choosing this B&B, but we were a bit surprised about how below our expectations the experience was.

But I will approach the good first: The staff seemed friendly and approachable. The concept behind the B&B is very unique, and there are few places in the UK you will be able to try out a Japanese washlet (toilet) or deep whirlpool bath. It was cute and fun, and for those of us who do not have a car or do not take them on holiday, it was reasonably well situated to reach the beach and Old Town (a ten minute walk or so).

The standard amenities (coffee, tea, kettle) included hot chocolate and instant lattes, a fridge, and bottled water. The whirlpool bath was fun, and didn't take as long as some reviewers say to fill. Ours took maybe 20 minutes and had no problems keeping the water in. Toiletries were provided, but they were cheap large bottles of supermarket products, so be sure to bring your own. The hotel itself was cute, although it looks to be a regular house from the outside.

The bad:

The place is in need of serious maintenance and some of the fixtures really needed cleaning. The furniture near the pool didn't seem safe to sit on as the wicker looked old and rotted. The breakfast wasn't horrible, but it wasn't good, and the coffee was really just light brown water. We would have opted for a cold breakfast instead of the "full English", which we were planning on anyway, but there didn't seem much of a selection other than cereal, toast and juice.

I've seen it advertised as having Tempurpedic beds, and that was probably what drew us to it as my husband has back problems and we normally sleep on a bed that is a memory foam/latex mix. We always have problems travelling adjusting to a sprung mattress. The bed (which was very creaky) was a sprung mattress with memory foam layers. This might be a positive for people who don't like sleeping on pure foam, but for us, we were looking forward to actually having a decent night's sleep away from home.

The only other thing was that we were in the front, ground floor room (1), and the noise disturbed my husband. You do hear people coming in and out. It didn't bother me, but lighter sleepers might opt for one of the rooms towards the back or higher up.
