Boutique & Breakfast


This elegantly-restored Victorian Villa is located a stone’s throw from the beach in the historic seaside town of Hastings in East Sussex.

Best known as the scene of the medieval battle that marked the beginning of the Norman conquest of Britain, Hastings is littered with reminders of its rich history. The Grade One-listed ruins of Hastings Castle, which was built in 1070, loom over the town centre, which has a wealth of fascinating museums and galleries.

Ideally placed for the town’s many and varied attractions, Black Rock House is just a few minutes’ walk away from the railway station and the attractive old town, with its independent shops, restaurants and cafés.

Black Rock House offers the standard of accommodation that one would expect of a boutique hotel, but with the friendly service and personal touch that you only get from a great B&B. If the much sought-after five-star gold rating awarded to Black Rock House is anything to go by, it would appear that Visit England shares this view!

The entire property has been given an elegant, contemporary look and feel that perfectly sets off its grand Victorian proportions and stunning original features. The stylish sitting room has an open fire and is a relaxing spot to kick back with the newspapers or plan how to get the most out of your stay in Hastings. There’s an honesty bar containing a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks for guests to help themselves to. Drinks can be enjoyed on the south facing terrace, in the guest lounge or in the comfort of your room.

Each of the five double, en suite guest bedrooms has its own unique design, but they all follow the same contemporary style, thanks to the well chosen soft furnishings, elegant furniture and tasteful accent colours. The beds are dressed in the finest linen and the rooms all contain a selection of refreshments, including homemade biscuits; a fridge containing fresh milk; an iPod docking station; and a flat-screen television. Guests have complimentary use of a DVD library and free, wireless internet access.

Black Rock House is a non-smoking property. Children over the age of ten are welcome. For details of the policy on dogs, please contact the owner direct.

Room rates range from £125 to £135 per night for double occupancy, and from £85 to £90 per night for single occupancy. All room rates include a two-course breakfast, parking permits and welcome drinks on arrival.


The award-winning breakfast features options to suit all tastes and is made with locally-sourced ingredients, wherever possible. Special dietary requirements can be catered for with prior notice. Delicious picnic hampers can be provided at a small additional cost, if ordered in advance.

Your say...

The house was immaculately decorated, clean and the bedroom and en suite bathroom were just lovely. Everything you could possibly need was in the room. The toiletries in the bathroom added that extra touch of luxury. The breakfasts were delicious.
