Only needed to stay one night, we wanted a hotel on the sea front & this looked ok on the website. Very limited parking, if the few bays at the front are full you have to hunt around the streets at the rear. In it's hay-day the hotel probably had lots of style & up to date amenities, but it's...

The ONLY reason we stayed here was because we was attending a wedding at the Azur across the road from the Royal Victoria. The only good thing about this hotel is the staff are very helpful. Other than that it needs closing down, ripping everything out and giving it a complete refurb. The towels in the bathroom were threadbare, the...

We stayed one night at this nostalgic hotel. The location can't be beat -- however parking was scarce. Though a bit dated, our room was clean, comfortable with a priceless view! The staff were professional and helpful. We would certainly return.

Yes, it's a bit worn, but it's a beauty of its type. I had a bizarre mezzanine suite. Quirky but comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Location can't be beaten. Worn, comfortable, warm (heating on in May) and you'd miss it if it went. Like slippers

I initially arrived here on a Sunday afternoon as I was working nearby on the Monday. The hotel seemed quite tired and old, but when I got up to my room it seemed to transform into a room with character. The room was absolutely huge with two individual chairs and coffee table, ample storage space, a desk with chair and...

We stayed here for a girls holiday in May 16. The hotel was probably lovely 30 years ago but has not aged well. The location is good is you just want near the sea and it's all a bit shabby close by, We had afternoon tea In the hotel and it was mediocre at best. The food had obviously been...

I really had very low expectations about a hotel that we had booked simply to provide a meeting point with a couple of friends on a very short trip to Hastings. Along with many south coast hotels from the heyday of Victorian seaside holidays this hotel has certainly seen better days. But having stayed along the coast in 5star hotels...
