We stayed with Brendan at The Swan House with some friends for a long weekend and had the best time. The rooms were beautiful and very well stocked with just about anything you may have needed and then some. We were made to feel like friends rather guests and the service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble. We would... More

Could not fault the Swan House. Great location. Furnished to a high standard, comfortable rooms and bed. Great lounge, with open fire, excellent breakfast and the fabulous Brendan. We had a great stay and would highly recommend.

I doubt if there is a better Bed and Breakfast in Britain.Brendan ,the host, covered every detail meticulously.The establishment was spotlessly clean.The breakfast was 5*..An example of the service was a light bulb went in the bedroom and was replaced within 5 minutes.The service is from a byegone era and every accolade this establishment receives is well deserved.

Had a 1st class weekend stay at Swan House, Brendan our host was excellent, service and room immaculate! Breakfast was superb ( homemade baked beans, sausages and omelette delicious!) As myself and my partner were getting married that weekend they couldn't be more helpful! Would 100% recommend Swan House to everyone!

lovely place to stay, quiet and very welcoming. Prefect for walking around Hastings, and getting to a variety of local restaurants. Everything you need was to hand, and if not then you would be accommodated for. Thanks

Fantastic location, fascinating building, spotless rooms, top notch hosts, fantastic breakfast - you really do feel like you’re giving yourself a treat. Even though it’s not exactly cheap, I’ve probably never stayed in a B&B in this country and thought it was worth every penny as much as I did at Swan House. And the best part was that I... More

On arrival, fireside tea and delicious flapjacks. Huge room with massive bed and gorgeous duvet but mind the low beam into ensuite! Accurate advice re local restaurants then home to honesty bar and wonderful sleep. Breakfast was A* and then we enjoyed a second night just as much. Many thanks to all your team Brendan.

Couldn't have been more perfect in every way. We can't wait to return. The staff were absolutely lovely and extremely helpful. The decor and breakfasts were to die for. The location also perfect. We loved it.
