“This was our first B&B/Hotel stay since January 2020 and almost forgot what a pleasure it is staying in a well-run and friendly guest house.
For our three-night ‘nostalgia’ stay, the accommodation (Red Room), breakfast (super quality), facilities and, above all, hosts Karen and Martin were excellent. There is not much more to add in terms of description and praise that has not already been recorded in previous reviews. The ‘extras’ in the room were very welcome, such as good quality tea and coffee items, and bathroom toiletries – even facemasks. The room was spacious and the bathroom (shower only) was compact but very comfortable. The shower was really powerful too! Only two very minor mentions: the noise from the shower (pump) in the adjoining room was very loud when in operation, and that there is no lift/elevator in the building. These are only very tiny observations though and in no way interfered with our relaxing and enjoyable stay at the Laindons.
The location in the old High Street is perfect for the old Hastings Town and the seafront, as well as the lovely east and west cliffs. We elected to take to train to Hastings (from London) and Hastings station is approximately a 20-minute walk to the guest house.
Now that we have discovered the Laindons, it will be our first choice for accommodation in future visits to Hastings, and will base any stays around room availability. It’s a real gem!”
