Boutique bolthole in the heart of Hastings Old Town.

The Old Rectory

Harold Road Hastings East Sussex TN35 5ND 01424 422 410

We say

If there was ever proof that things in Hastings were on the up, it's this eighteenth-century rectory in the heart of the Old Town, which has been tastefully dolled up as a luxurious boutique hotel, with eight quirkily individual guest rooms that charm and pamper at the same time – and all for a very desirable price. Breakfasts are locally sourced and delicious – homebaked bread, kippers from the Old Town fishmonger, eggs from a nearby farm, plus they make their own sausages and bacon – while the (named) rooms all have flatscreen TVs and DVD players, robes, Egyptian cotton sheets and vary from the relatively simple Rock-a-Nore to the fancier Ebenezer and Crown; there's also a suite with space for four – perfect for friends, two couples or a family. They have two effortlessly chic lounges and an honesty bar and can host weddings in the hotel itself or outside their lovely walled garden with patio and pond – a lovely spot, we reckon, to tie the knot. Indeed the Old Rectory is the perfect place from which to enjoy the ever-increasing delights of Hastings and the Sussex coast, whether you're getting married, are already married, or have no intention of getting married at all!
