Very dog friendly

Nice location right opposite the beach - had our one year old dog with us and we all had a warm welcome and comfortable stay in a charming old hotel with bags of character thank you

A bit tired and dated!

Pros: Location was good
Cons: The overall "feel" of the place
Location: Did not venture out
Helpful staff at check-in and out. But the hotel is still set in the 60's and 70's. It's decor is very dark and gloomy, with the exception of the dining room and bar areas, which have a magnificent sea view. During dinner, the members of staff seemed hurried and under pressure. Service at the bar and in the restaurant was slow, despite not appearing to be too busy. The food at dinner was OK, nothing more. Breakfast was buffet style and I had no complaints.

A great place to stay

Location: Location excellent across from the beach and walking distance to the town.
Excellent hotel in every way, spacious and clean rooms. Have already rebooked to go back next month. Free car parking is a bonus.

Perfect spacious dog friendly hotel

Perfect location and a good nights sleep. Nice spacious bathroom. High ceilings and drapes. Felt a little dated decor wise but otherwise lovely.

All right for the price, far from stupendous

Superbly positioned on the Hastings seafront, Best Western's Royal Victoria Hotel had a slightly tired air of faded grandeur. It was spacious and reasonably comfortable, and the staff were all individually extremely friendly and helpful. However, money needs to be spent on giving this marvellously located, Victorian (?) building more internal glitter and zest. The decor was in dire need of upgrading, the bedroom not quite shabby, but in that direction - no pictureson the walls, windows stuck shut, the shower-over-the-bath not working ... The bar menu was fair, the food mediocre. The restaurant menu, untried, was frightful: stupidly expensive for a very limited choice shown on dog-eared menus. Overall, you could do worse, but the hotel could do a lot better.

Das Hotel liegt am Strand, allerdings mit einer Strasse dazwischen, was je nach Lage des Zimmers stören könnte. Das Zimmer war sehr grosszügig in der Grösse und vom Mobiliar her, aber etwas oldfashioned eingrichtet so wie das ganze Hotel. Es ist generell sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, bedarf aber einer Renovation. Das Frückstück war sehr vielfältig und in einem angenehmen Speisesaal mit Blick aufs Meer. Ebenfalls eine sehr grosszügige, einladende Lobby zum Verweilen. Das Personal war serh freundlich.
