I had lunch and visited the Royal Victoria hotel, to be honest I wasn't very impressed with the venue, it was clear that some of the decor was outdated and old. The food was OK however the long wait for service kind of killed that mood. The staff were polite but stressed as they advised that they were short staffed.

Arriving to 5 drunks propping up the bar; swigging cider and lager was a lovely greeting. This was enhanced by the young, naïve receptionist announcing that I was "a single staying in a double room" and then broadcast my room number to the assembled group of inebriated men!! I had to explain to the receptionist that he should change my...

All the old style features of a grand sea side hotel. Downstairs is very nice in the classic style. I was given a suit on the 5th floor. Nice room with Lounge & bathroom. Shower was very poor. Just worked from the bath taps, so no proper temperature control. Shower head just flops down and points at the wall, so...

Lovely stay at Christmas in a suite. Unfortunately, the hotel is so dated must be from the 50's. Best Western need to get a grip and update this beautiful hotel to the 21st century. The bathrooms are something else, shower that I must have had in my bathroom 30 years ago. One saving grace, the bed was very comfortable.

I turned up here late on a wet February evening with a gale blowing in off the sea. I was able to park directly outside the hotel and made a dash for the entrance. Once inside, I was surprised to find myself in a rather grand entrance hall; not what I was expecting. The reception staff were very welcoming. My...

Never been to Hastings before so decided to visit friends. Found this hotel online and booked last minute, upon arrival I was disappointed that there was no carpark however parking was not a problem. The room was a great size and everything was provided. We had a great nights sleep, initially we haven't booked a breakfast but decided last minute...

We stayed here in January. It's an impressive building and one I walked past, but never went in for 16 years as I grew up nearby. My hubby & I had tickets to see Eddie Izzard at the nearby De La Warr and needed somewhere close to stay. This fit the bill. I was excited to finally get to go...
