Zanzibar Hotel in Hastings voted in The Sunday Times list of ‘Best Beach Hotels’.

This is the second time the hotel has been recognised by The Times newspaper.  The year we opened we made their ‘Top 10 hotels in the country’ following a score of 29/30 in their anonymously reviewed ‘checking-in’ section.  Last Sunday (June 17th) we were thrilled to be included in their list of ‘Best Seaside Hotels’.  The review focused on the vast unbroken sea-views from the front facing rooms, and cited the secluded beaches of Hastings and St Leonards for long lazy afternoon walks.

The addition of the restaurant has made a huge difference to the overall guest experience.  Hastings has been crying-out for a decent new restaurant. A combination of very good food served in a wonderful atmosphere, with friendly yet professional waitress service is proving to be an irresistible formula.  Last week, 90% of the hotel guests opted to eat-in. When you read their feedback on the restaurant website and on other restaurant review sites such as, you can see why The Times has decided to single-out the hotel for special praise once again.
