Likes:
Beautiful furnishings and décor, fantastically friendly and helpful staff, and in a great location to explore the junk shops and bohemian environs of St Leonards.
Dislikes:
Nothing at all. It really was perfect. I can't recommend it enough.

Hello Jordan

"Magical"
I visited Hastings for two nights with my wife. We pottered in antique shops and walked around town. But the highlight without a doubt was revisiting St Benedict's B&B, which is like no other place. It is stepping into the most beautifully curated, lovingly arranged, carefully considered and detailed recreation of a period Victorian home. It's breathtaking, and every moment in the house is suffused with magic - though it is not in the least twee, stuffy or precious. The welcome is utterly warm. Read less
Likes:
It is simplest to say that St Benedict's is a time-machine. It's not merely a place to stay, but a place to go - I could holiday in Hastings and never leave my room. It's magical, utterly transporting
Dislikes:
There is nothing bad to be said about this precious place. I want to keep it a secret so that nothing about it is changed, but it's only fair to write an honest review; St Benedict is a treasure.
Response from St Benedict B&B:
Hello Lindsay
Very many thanks for your lovely and very generous review, which we much appreciate. I am so glad that you enjoyed the house so much and am sorry not to have met you in person. Do come again for another visit to put that right.
Very best wishes Paul

"Victorious!"
Homemade cake with tea, in front of the fire, on arrival.Beautifully decorated, with care, and flare! We felt we were away from everything and put in suptuous surroundings. Steve and Paul were great hosts and we loved the big table to eat at in the morning, again with fire, so to chat with other guests, and a fernery in the window! Radiators on all the time which was just lovely in the cold weather.If I changed anything it would be to have a veggie sausage with breakfast and a dressing up box! Read less

Hello Deb
Thank you so much for your lovely review. You could have had a veggie sausage, but a dressing up box will take longer to organise - please bring suitable Victorian costume next time!
Very best wishes

"No words or pictures can do justice to this beautiful, lovingly created space."
Sadly just a one night stay, we slept in Mr Parry's Room overlooking the garden and with a sea view. The room has a large dressing room and clever, meticulously designed shower en-suite. We were speechless at the spectacular interiors of our room and in each room we saw in the house, which we felt very welcome to use. The house is not just an aesthetic experience but very comfortable too, we both slept very well in the large bed, roused only by the thought of breakfast-which was wonderful! Read less
Likes:
We were welcomed and made very comfortable in the beautiful house. Bedroom and bathroom were thoughtfully designed and spacious. Breakfast was generous, delicious and served in style.

"A delightful escape from the 21st century"
From pulling the door bell on arriving to hearing the solid 'clunk' of the door behind us when we left, St Benedict's provided good company, good food, excellent service and an invigorating antidote to the 21st century. Leave behind the flimsy, utilitarian and mass produced interiors of today and enjoy a solid, decorative and unique mass of Victoriana. Understated this is not, and all the better for it: the spacious Victorian house has all the room for its fascinatingly eccentric interior. Read less
Likes:
The seemingly endless variety of ornaments, the authentic cutlery and warming stands, the homemade marmalade, the ancient, comfortable bed and the service were a few of the highlights. Wonderful!
Dislikes:
None
Response from St Benedict B&B:
Dear Stephen and Kate
Many thanks for your lovely review. It all helps! It was wonderful to catch up and hope not to have to wait 20 years to see you again. Love and best wishes

"A truly unique home from home."
From the moment we arrived we felt like house guests in a more genteel and relaxed era. Tea and freshly baked sponge in the secluded garden was followed by an exploration of the lovingly restored Victorian house, with intriguing items to look at on every side. Paul made us so welcome and the breakfasts were delicious with top quality food. Read less
Likes:
We'd been intrigued by the house on the web site but the reality was so much better. The organ room was rather like sitting in an exotic jewel box. I just wanted to laugh with sheer delight.
Dislikes:
The light levels were too low to read in the sitting rooms. Some decaffeinated hot drinks such as peppermint tea could have been provided, and personally I like accommodation to provide Fair Trade.

"Unique and wonderful, a gem."
