Brilliant interior decor. Very good room with exceptional facilities. The best full English breakfast I have ever had (that I have not cooked myself) and I write about food! The staff were excellant. The Old Rectory is almost 10 out of 10 and getting close to perfection.
An earlier breakfast would have been good. But we enjoyed the place so much it perhaps did not matter as much as usual.
Loved the quirky lounge and general interior. The staff were fantastic and attentive, the breakfast was delicious. The little touches like homemade biscuits were fantastic.
Our room was a little chilly (though it was the coldest day of the year - so maybe to be expected).
I always enjoy staying in the Old Rectory. Close to fine Bars and Restaurants and the comfort and facilities are excellent.
The staff are great. The rooms are lovely. Breakfast is superb. It's located in an area of the old town that gives easy access to the local pubs and restaurants.
There's nothing I didn't like.
perfectly positioned to explore the old town. Warm and friendly welcome and service. Interesting building next to a lovely church. Excellent breakfast. Bread, jams etc home made even the sausages & baked beans were made on the premises.
excellent and helpful staff honesty bar
The welcome, comfort and ambience. Large and attractive common rooms, decorated and furnished with thought and style. Bedroom spacious and stylish, comfortable bed nice linen, and bathroom with lovely full sized bath. Good breakfast with locally sourced produce, home made sausages and bread for example.
Unfortunately only able to stay one night rather than two as booked due to double booking, but manager Luke managed to relocate us to the Laindons two minutes away, which was also excellent. As there are so many booking sites these days, it would be prudent to ring where you are intending to stay as soon as booked to ensure you truly have secured your booking, I think that this is an increasing problem as this is the second time in the last year this has happened to us. We were fortunate to have such welcoming and helpful hosts, who did their best to ameliorate the problems on this occasion, but might not always be so lucky.
Wonderful welcome and delightful staff with lots of local knowledge. Tea and cakes on arrival with a beautiful view over the garden. Quiet location in the old town and only minutes from seafront.
Very warm welcome with delicious cake and tea. An extremely beautiful house with lovely rooms, some of which have garden view. For breakfast there is a good choice of different meals that are all prepared fresh. The town centre is within walking distance.
The car park is quite small.
The building, the staff and the location!!!
Location near the old town, lovely suite, friendly professional staff, outstanding delicious breakfasts.
So comfortable So helpful Such a good breakfast Will return as soon as possible
Warm welcome, overall ambiance, comfortable bed, powerful shower, cafetière & fresh coffee in room, 2 course breakfast with variety of choices. I chose sausage, baked beans, cured bacon (all home made) as was the bread for toast with poached egg instead of scrambled which was no problem. It was excellent and would certainly stay again & recommend it to colleagues.
Some may consider it pricey for a B&B but the standard far exceeds your average B&B and many hotels that charge similar prices.
Good location for sea front and old town. Rooms decorated to a very high level. Bed was extremely comfortable! Very good breakfast with lots of options.
Wifi was very poor so not possible to work using it. This was mentioned though.
Just loved the whole experience.
Impressive room Beautiful breakfast
Very freindly staff, very good value.
The staff were incredibly helpful, taking time to tell us about the area whilst we checked in. The hotel was stylish, clean and in a fantastic location, we would thoroughly recommend it.
Great location in the old town of Hastings, near to the best pubs and cafés. This is a unique and beautiful B&B, friendly staff and delicious breakfasts.
Excellent location a short walk from Old Town and Restaurants. Good size bedrooms, well appointed and quiet. Staff friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Excellent choices for breakfast. Very, very clean throughout. Our perfect place to relax for a few days. Would return.
There was nothing to dislike which I realise sounds unusual but it's true in this case.
The whole ambience was very well balanced. Both the shared and personal spaces are tastefully decorated to a very high standard and attention to detail was faultless. The staff were very helpful and keen to offer advice as required.
Hastings has begun to emerge from decades of decline and lack of investment. I had never been to this part of the south coast before and decided to visit for my daughters birthday. The old town in Hastings has some recently revived shops, bars, restaurants and a beautiful new gallery, so offers an interesting area in which to wander for a short stay but the extended town is quite run down. I am not sure I would chose to stay for long as I found the extended area quite depressing. I heard however it is on the up, the pier is being rebuilt and a high speed train from London will no doubt bring much needed investment.
The staff at the Old Rectory were all extremely friendly & helpful and couldn't have made us feel more welcome. The hotel is very tastefully decorated, has a beautiful secluded garden and the breakfasts are excellent offering a wide variety of choices
We were made to feel so welcome, with the offer of tea or coffee on arrival too. The room was lovely and the breakfasts were simply delicious. Tracy-Ann and the other staff were delightful and could not have been more attentive hosts.
We were met by the most helpful (but somehow completely non-intrusive) who served us with home made cake & coffee while he told us all about Hastings and checked us in. The hotel was stunning & comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing. We'll be back in a heartbeat
High standard, spotlessly clean, beautiful garden, fantastic breakfast, lovely decor
Car park bit tight.
