This is no longer a hotel but an 8 bedroom rental house. The house is furnished in a unique way, all the rooms are Countries and individual. the house was very clean and extremely well equipped. The house and garden would have warranted 5 stars, but the sunshades in the patio garden are impossible to put down, so there is very little sun in the garden. Also be aware there are a lot of steps and stairs, making it unsuitable for anyone with physical disabilities.

We were due to go to Seville, for a weekend break. However C19 got in the way. Spotted this Gem and phoned up Max, the wonderful owner. Warm and welcoming and easy to deal with (along with his talented assistant Anete.) Basically he allowed us to stay in the hotel on our own, so it was within the guidelines and gave us an amazing base to explore St Leonard’s. So it was like our own giant mansion! We were 3 couples and had the downstairs as a giant living room and diner and kitchen (plus jacuzzi outside covered from the elements.) Kitchen was spotless with state of art coffee maker. Brilliant sound system and space to eat and relax. We did a train to Rye to the micro pub. Ate out two nights and a 7 mile beach walk and train back from Cooden. We also had a fun night in with games and our own wine so on balance had a varied and brilliant time. The rooms we all stayed in were spotless, beds extremely comfortable. And were all tastefully and luxuriously detailed. Thankful to have spotted the hotel (more like AirB&B if you wish to use it that way). Highly recommend Zanzibar and in addition the ‘St. Clements’ restaurant if visiting. But call a couple of weeks before as it books up.

Friendly greeting, from nice staff. Made use of the underground car park, offered by the hotel at £5 a night, otherwise parking might have been tricky. Fantastic room with a great sea view. Lovely decor in the room - with a lot of attention in its detail. Enjoyed a cocktail in the stylish bar before heading out to eat. We had breakfast served in our room in the morning from a varied menu. Thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay. Price on the higher side, but worth it.

Location: Perfect, we took the South America room with amazing views of the sea, sunrise and sunset. The hotel is within walking distance of most of the sights in Old Town, Hastings. You don't really need to drive. Staff/Owner: Both Max and Anete were excellent, helpful and accommodating. Max, especially, was brilliant at giving us tips and advice. Anete was sweet, friendly and helpful. I forgot the name of the girl who was in training whom we met on the last day - so sorry. Everyone was pleasant, with smiles on their faces. Room: Huge, enough for 2 of us lugging 3 suitcases, with ample cupboard space. The bathroom with its huge tub, and separate shower enclosure were simply fab. Probably one of the tubs I've been able to sink into. The toiletries were also good (REN) and generously sized. Breakfast: Goodness, the fresh food in the mornings were just wonderful. My husband and I loved the yogurt with honey and fresh fruits. And I loved the cheesy beans on toast (my mouth still waters thinking about it). Max is a brilliant conversationalist - is that even a word? and really nice to talk to. Also, please read the morning dispatches sent to the rooms - they're both informative and hilarious! Definitely would recommend!

This hotel provided a delightful two day stay. The staff and the management I found to be friendly, professional and efficient. The staff were happy to look after our luggage for a few hours as we arrived too early for check-in. It was a boiling hot day and we were kindly offered some iced water to help us recover from the mid-summer sun. We took the Zanzibar room which was beautifully presented, clean throughout and really spacious. Being almost on the highest floor we expected there to be quite a few steps to the room, but nothing that two unfit, overweight middle-aged people could not manage. The only improvement that could be made to the room is the addition of air conditioning, but I suppose it would only be used for a few weeks of the year...unluckily for us we arrived on one of the the hottest weekends, but this did not mar our experience in any way. The breakfast was absolutely superb: homemade yogurts, breads and jams (as well as a selection of the usual salmon/eggs benedict or fried breakfast options) and the addition of a glass of champagne in the morning was a nice touch that goes someway to justifying the high room rate. We really enjoyed our time here, the jacuzzi bath worked well and the views from our room were stunning on the clear sunny days we enjoyed. Had a pleasant chat to one of the owners on our way out and compared previous travels (an obvious passion of theirs and something that influences the decor of every room they have). This is a really nice place and in such a good location. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.
