person found this review helpful

We stayed for a long weekend in January the weather was much warmer than anticipated and we managed to enjoy walks on th beach and the stunning view of the sunrise.

This accommodation has everything I could have wished for and more. The standard of finish was akin to a 5 star hotel and we had a wonderful time.

I would definitely recommend this stay to friends.

“Perfect pad”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Really enjoyed our all too brief stay at this apartment. The photos do not do it justice as it is beautifully done out with stylish touches all over. The kitchen was fully equipped and spacious, the living room light bright and comfortable and the beds perfect. The special touches of the welcome basket, filled with prosecco,butter, bread, chocolate etc and the spa bath and shower goodies in the bathroom just made this place even more memorable. We didn't see too much of Hastings as we were there for a wedding at Battle Abbey but after staying at Gull's View we are more likely to return just to stay there again.

“Tasteful, cosy, bright and welcoming.”
Reviewed September 16, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Gulls View is a beautifully decorated flat. Everything you can think of for a comfortable stay is provided including a welcome basket of local produce, milk and bread. Margaret is a welcoming host and we enjoyed our stay very much- thank you.

“Home from home”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This holiday apartment is immaculately decorated with the most stunning view from the living room window. The bed in the main bedroom is extremely comfortable and I had an incredible nights sleep here. Position wise it's perfect for Hastings old town where there are plenty of nice shops, restaurants and bars as well as fresh fish, cheese and wine shops if you want to cook. If not there is a fish and chip shop just next door which is perfect for a lazy dinner by the sea. The owners have thought of every detail including an amazing welcome hamper. All in all I highly recommend Gull's view for a relaxing, enjoyable few days away by the seaside.

“Wonderful tranquil retreat - highly recommended!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My first thought was was a wonderful location; perfectly located on the sea front with easy access and spectacular views!
It is ideal for St Leonards' quaint streets and sweeping beach, and also just a 20 minute walk to the charming Old Town of Hastings.
The apartment itself was immaculately presented; a perfect balance of clean practicality and homely cosiness!

“Beautifully presented apartment with attention to detail.”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My friends and I enjoyed a long weekend here and would thoroughly recommend it. An ideal location being close enough to enjoy Hastings (a lovely 15 minute stroll along the promenade). The apartment is right on the seafront with nothing interrupting your view of the sea. A convenience store and restaurants were right on the doorstep!
The apartment itself is beautifully presented. Every room is light and extremely clean (spotless in fact!) Beds are comfy too. The kitchen is well stocked and Margaret left a very generous welcome pack for us to enjoy. The whole place has a 5* feel about it and you can tell the owners have paid close attention to detail throughout. Because of this we were all able to enjoy a luxurious and relaxing break by the sea. Can't wait to return!

“Amazing”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This accommodation is just a cross the road and has wonderful sea views and is finished to the highest standard. Margaret, the owner, was warm and welcoming leaving a generous welcome package and lots of thoughtful touches like picnic equipment and beach toys.
The property itself is ideally situated for all the tourist attractions such as Battle Abbey and Pevency Castle as well as Hastings and the beach, which is just a cross the road.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone and can't wait to stay again.
