Charming country hotel. Not Relais&Chateau level
This hotel is in a great location with a lovely garden. It is definitely not the standard of a Relais & Chateau however. The restaurant and food were deplorable. The menu seems not to have changed since the 1980s. Presentation wasn’t interesting. Lamb special was chewy with a salty sauce and overcooked broccoli. Salad had far too much oil and was served on a plate too tiny for the whole pieces of lettuce. Prawn avocado salad was served on a warm plate swimming with a sauce that was far too spicy. The value was not there considering the high prices. And that was just dinner in the fine dining room. Breakfast was not good either and service was sadly lacking. We understand these are challenging times but when you pay that much, you deserve better! The room we had called Manor East is right over the kitchen and very noisy in the morning. Don’t book it unless you want to be woken at 6:30 a.m. The things we did like were lots of big fluffy towels and pillows. We enjoyed walking around the gardens and being close to Moby’s where the food is good for the price. We booked Hastings House thinking it would be like the manor houses we stayed at in the Cotswolds, UK and other Relais &Chateau hotels but it was nowhere close to them. Overall it was disappointing, especially as it was to celebrate an important anniversary.

Cute country cottage styled suite built into the hillside. Minimal view of marina through trees from my lower suite which was beside the Moby pub and I like the Afternoon music from there. The grounds are nice And the restaurant breakfast was great. The gentleman server and younger lady servers very nice. Overall pleasant stay but expensive for no amenities. Massage was decent but also very pricey for zero amenities.
