Swan House is without doubt the most lovely place that I have stayed. The house is beautiful and I only wish that I could have spent a little longer in that sumptuous bed.

Such a wonderful B&B, in the middle of Hastings and right by the sea, but once you close the door, you have such peace and tranquillity. The décor is fabulous and the breakfast, the best I've had in a B&B. Brendan is very attentive and ensures you have the best stay possible. Will definitely be going back.

Have just returned from another excellent night's stay at Swan House. Lovely surroundings, comfortable room and one of the best breakfasts I have encountered in any hotel (at any price). Thoroughly recommended for anyone who appreciates a warm welcome and a quiet and relaxing atmosphere.

We had a perfect time staying here. Swan House is near to good restaurants, lively pubs and the new art gallery. Brendan and les girls were hugely helpful from booking until checkout and we will return.

I'm not sure what more one can reasonably ask of a B&B - a beautiful house, beautifully done in the perfect location with warm hospitality and a great breakfast. I stayed in Church, which managed the tricky balance of being stylish, tasteful, practical and homely. As the weather was so good, breakfast was in the courtyard which was lovely -... More
