The White Rock Hotel


The hotel is situated in a prime position on Hastings seafront, with stunning views and stylish accommodation.

After considerable refurbishment, with more in hand, the hotel offers modern rooms and a relaxed, unfussy and friendly service. All the rooms are ensuite - those at the front have spectacular seaviews, whilst the rear rooms are quieter.
The hotel is next door to the White Rock Theatre, just across the road from the beach and within easy reach of the many attractions of Hastings and the surrounding area.
Brand new Terrace cafe-bar recenlty opened, where breakfast can be served al fresco, overlooking the sea, meeting friends for lunch or sip cocktails in the moonlight.
The Terrace cafe-bar is CAMRA Good Beer Guide listed, and a past winner of South East Sussex pub of the year. They serve local real ales and wine, fair trade coffee and tea, and source as much of our produce locally as possible (including their very own White Rock Beer Sausages).
Private car park with 16 spaces for residents and can also provide parking vouchers for us in the adjacent Pier car park.

Not quite '20,000 leagues' under The White Rock Hotel, the subtly themed basement bar is intimate and cosy, with a very different feel to the rest of the hotel. It has an extensive choice of rums and a relaxed, evening ambience.
