Not very pleasant, horrible coastal place
The pictures make this place look quaint, the reality is different.
Upon arrival at the hotel there was a group obviously worse for wear shouting and swearing loudly. Loud music was booming in the bar/reception area where we were greeted by the landlady who claimed that we had not booked for breakfast where it had been clearly stated on the website. We collected our key and walked up two floors where the stair carpet had not been cleaned for a very long time. The room itself was pretty clean, alas there was a broken white Venetian blind that let beaming sunshine in the room at 4.30 the next morning, the plug socket moved around in the wall when you plugged something in and two shower mats passed as bedside rugs. The cups had not been properly cleaned and the water in the kettle looked like it came from the sea. The whole area of St. Leonard's and Hastings has degenerated into a ghastly place, after confronting various beggars in the town we headed back, I went out to make a phone call and the police were in the reception dealing with the drunkeness in the bar. After awaking at 4.30 due to glaring sunlight through the broken blind we slowly got ready to go to breakfast. They had only one egg left but in fairness an extra sausage was offered, not known a hotel to run out of eggs though. The cutlery had not been cleaned properly and there was dried sugar in the bottom of the cups. In general I would not advise anyone to stay in St. Leonard's or Hastings unless they like being pestered by beggars and man eating seagulls, the area needs total regeneration, If you do decide to take a break there I would advise a different place to the Highland Inn.
On the up!
I was looking forward to a stop at this hotel, as I am regularly in the area for work and had heard that a new team were making great improvements and I hoped that with its reasonable rates and good location it may become a regular for me.
Sadly, I didn't feel they have yet made it. Everyone I met seemed very friendly but more attention was needed in the cleaning department, as the bedside table and a mirror were both very dusty. There has been some major spend with new fittings in the tiny shower room/wc but the radiator was coloured with rust spots. Similarly, nice new bed linen but the bed was very soft, perhaps through wear, and the lower pillows sticking out of their covers were very yellowed with age. I feel a bit mean in posting this, as they seem to be spending out to make big improvements and if they can just go the final stage it will be good value. I didn't stop for breakfast, as I was up extra early due to a winding night disturbing me and disappeared off to do some work.
