Loved staying here! It’s a little threadbare on the stairway but it’s super cool swanning around the piano bar and marble stairway. The room (411) was huge with a spectacular view of the sea. Slept so very well with the sound of the waves. Breakfast...More

Dated, dirty and no parking. The food is bland and comes with attitude. One place we will not return to again. Hastings has closed, the hotel closed before the place. Dreadful, dreadful, dreadful. Need I say more.
