Booked at last minute for a very reasonable price and there were some mixed reviews online so wasn't sure what to expect. I spoke to the owner on the phone to confirm my booking the day before and he turned out to be quite the character! The hotel itself is an old building and has a very dated style of décor, but there isn't actually anything wrong with this, it's obviously the style of the owner. Everything was quite antiquated in fact as I had to sign a guest book and got a hand written receipt. I had booked a family en-suite room and it was spotlessly clean and fairly comfortable, although the mattress was far too hard for my liking. The only thing wrong with the room was the absolutely ancient 4:3 ratio TV that made everything we watched look like it was being played back from a very worn VHS video. They really should replace it. There was Wi-Fi though, which was kind of unexpected. There was plenty of street parking (max 2 hours 8am-6pm) and one disabled spot right outside, which was always being used, so you do have to keep moving your car if you are hanging around. Wasn't a problem for us as we were visiting different places. Overall the hotel is quite dated, but it's good value and very clean, so I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed with our saucepan lids before a break to avoid traffic at bank holiday. The foreign fridge freezer on reception seemed a diamond but took the whelk 5 minutes just to open a door with our rooms keys in. He also said if you need to park go left and you will find a square. The “square” was a small circle with 13 space all were taken, so had to walk 10 minutes and pay for overnight Public Parking. The actual room had a damp smell and 70’s style decor. The same smell was in the lounge with spider plants and flies everywhere. We booked a family room which was described as having a fridge. There was no fridge but it did have a smelly flat old cushion to sit on while you make a cup of tea from a kettle that would have been purchased the last time the UK won the Eurovision Song Contest. No bar, no breakfast, no point !

A very nice gentleman greeted us when we arrived. The room we had was at the top of the hotel and had a great view of the sea. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay, the beds were comfortable and the en-suite was a nice size.

This hotel does what it says on the tin, for us it was a place to lay our heads after a festival. Warm welcome with helpful tips for everything. Lower your expectations and enjoy exploring the area and remember it’s a room to sleep and wash and then you will enjoy yourself. 👍🏼

If you go to The Grand Hastings, expecting a traditional Grand Hotel, you will be very disappointed. This is an old building with woodchip on the walls and artex ceilings. There are lots of stairs, which we didn't find a problem. However, it is clean and comfortable. We had a fabulous full seaview room and the beds were comfortable. The location is great, on the seafront and in between St Leonard's and Hastings, all walking distance. You have to be lucky with the street parking, the proprietor was very helpful explaining whereabouts. This is a strict non smoking hotel. Not suitable for non smokers. No other restrictions. It was perfect for us, a little expensive for a 2 star but that reflects the current demand.
