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.

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.
