Boutique bolthole on the fringe of Hastings Old Town

If there was ever proof that things in Hastings were on the up, it's this eighteenth-century rectory on the edge 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. The rooms, each named after a street in the Old Town, vary quite a lot, from the relatively simple Rock-a-Nore to the fancier All Saints and Crown, but they all come with tea-and coffee-making facilities, fresh milk, complimentary water, flatscreen Freeview TVs with DVD players (and a selection of books and DVDs), robes, Egyptian cotton sheets and well-appointed bathrooms – many with baths – stocked with their own Copley by the Sea brand of toiletries. There's also a suite with space for four – perfect for friends, two couples or a family. Downstairs are two effortlessly chic lounges and an honesty bar and they 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. They have also recently added some treatment rooms and a sauna for a spot of proper pampering for residents and non-residents alike. 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!



Open all year.


Double rooms with breakfast from £130 a night.
