About your Laindons hosts – boutique guesthouse Hastings

Hi there,

We’re Karen and Malcolm Twist and it’s always been our dream to have a guest house by the sea, so when we found The Laindons Guest House here in Hastings Old Town, it was everything we’d been looking for and we knew we found the perfect spot. We think we’ve created a boutique guesthouse in Hastings second to none.

So after thirty years as top end London hair stylists with a busy salon in South London, we packed up our scissors and decamped to the seaside; leaving the hustle and bustle of the Big Smoke behind us to build something we love and so we opened our doors and welcomed our first guests in 2017.

Our aim is to provide our guests with a place to escape and relax; be it a celebration, a break, a business trip, an excuse to explore or even just to spend some ‘quality time’; we always try our best to ensure your stay with us is extra special, so you leave rested, content and recharged.

We think of it as ‘Style on Sea’ and when you visit for yourself, you’ll understand why.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Karen & Malcolm Twist

A warm welcome

Top Notch B&B – Great attention to detail

“A friend and I have just spent a long weekend at The Laindons and could not recommend this place more highly. Malcolm and Karen are hugely welcoming and friendly. The attention to detail is superb. The rooms are beautifully decorated with numerous extras – high quality shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body lotion. Ear plugs, cosmetic wipes, sewing kits etc.

Each room has tea and coffee making facilities with TeaPig teabags. Fresh milk is available from little bottles in the communal fridge which also has cold bottles of water. The bed linen is from Draper London and cake is available to help yourself during the day. There is an honesty bar in a lovely sitting room where we enjoyed a couple of G&Ts before we ventured out each evening.

The breakfast was delicious and very high quality – highly recommend the homemade granola, yoghurt and fruit.

All is all a very high quality B&B that I would thoroughly recommend.”
