A friend and I booked two large rooms, the Renaissance and the Church. From the first moment of Brendon's warm welcome to his farewell, I can't fault it. He couldn't have been more welcoming and flexible. He loves his work and it shows. Beautiful house and decor, everything immaculately clean and kept, comfortable and generous touches everywhere, 5 star standard...

Great B&B, perfect location close to the buzz of the Old town but not disturbed by it in the evening. The service was brilliant. Brendan provides a parking permit for the car whilst you stay. Breakfast was delightful the eggs were so fluffy!! Perfect little getaway Highly recommended

Swan House is a lovely, intimate, place to stay with marvellous service and real style/character. My wife and I had a great time. We certainly intend to return and perhaps (with cousins) to ask if we can book the whole place!

Thank you for your five star review. Many of our guests return and book out the whole place. With just four rooms, we are ideal for a small gathering of friends of family, whether it is for a special occasion or not. We are so delighted that you had a good time.

Beautiful. Every little detail from the tea and pastries in arrival to the creative interior touches. The bed and linen was incredible, the shower wonderful with Hastings soap, breakfast was delicious and Brendan was a perfect host. The Artisan room which was the old bakery is ample space, cosy, and beautifully designed. Thank you.

We really couldn' t fault the stylish and comfortable accommodation, breakfast or the personal attention we received on our one night stay.Perfect for the Jerwood Gallery and a quick dash along the coast to the de la Warr Riley exhibition-but we were also impressed with Hastings Old Town and would have been happy to stay for longer.
