A Beautiful and Tasteful House

Posted Sep 24, 2017 on Hotels
The house was a wonderfully evocative place. Each room looked absolutely wonderful. The various displays were really thought provoking and colourful. The breakfast each morning was superb. The reception and service were the best we have experienced for a very long time. This is a place well worth returning to over and over again.

Amazing, run by owners who care about lot about thier customers and are passionate about thier home.Possibly not for those who like slick modern accommodation. Made to feel at home as a solo traveller, Every part of the house had a personal touch.

St Leonarnds alternative stay to the norm.

Really warm welcome from everyone here. This place can not make anything as so much effort made. We were given home baked cake & tea. Strong religious theme which was not unpleasant. Large collection of religious Ikons. Incredible decor and attention to detail

A Victorian victory

I was extremely impressed by this quaint little B&B. The lady who works there (the lovely Kat) is warm and friendly and really makes you feel welcome. The breakfast was very good as was the room. Totally perfect in all areas!

A unique experience, excellent host.

Pros: Its character and the warm welcome.
Cons: Nothing springs to mind.
Location: Norman Rd in St Leonards for shopping, Pier 9 Restaurant, Hastings Old Town and the fisherman's huts (up near the Jerwood).
This B&B is like nothing I've seen outside a museum – everything from the curtains to the wallpaper to the bathtub are Victorian. The owners have dedicated many years to making this an authentic Victorian experience (with a few 21st century comforts, of course). Paul, the host, was friendly and accommodating, even leaving us tea and cake on our arrival in the living room and a filling full English breakfast to set us for the the next day. If you're fans of this period, you will be in your element.
