The ground floor is the heart of the house. The fully-fitted kitchen is well-equipped and opens-up (via bi-fold doors) to a covered area of garden with BBQ, hot tub and outdoor lounge & dining areas. At the other end of the kitchen, the atmospheric dining room comfortably seats 14 / 16 people and there is an additional small table that seats 3 or 4 within easy reach. The main dining room leads to the cosy lounge with an array of comfortable seating, sea views, its own bar, a Sage (bean to cup) coffee machine, large screen TV & Bluray DVD. There is a well-stocked DVD library for your use and jigsaw puzzles & board games are available on request.

Large House For High-End Retreats by the sea

'Zanzibar' is 30 metres from the beach. Exit the house in either direction and you have miles of wide flat promenade along the top of the beach; ideal for walking, running, scooting or cycling. Cold-water swimming is within easy reach. Meditation and relaxation are readily available, and the winter sunrises and sunsets will calm your mind and soothe your sole.

Beautiful Large House in good location for business off-sites

The Pubs, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, take-aways, convenience stores and antique shops of St Leonards are all within easy reach. The cobbled streets and funicular railways of the historic old part of town are a 20-minute walk away. These give way to the Protected Hastings Country Park - essentially an extension to the nearby South Downs – offering cliff-top walks and stunning views all the way to the quaint Medieval village of Rye some 12 miles away. The Blue Reef Aquarium, the Hastings Contemporary art gallery, the fishermen’s museum and the characterful tall black net huts are all situated in the old part of Hastings, not to mention amusement arcades, fish ‘n’ chips, live music, crazy golf and the boating lake. The White Rock Theatre and Hastings Pier are less than 5 minutes’ walk away to the East. Head West from the house and the Art Deco De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill is reachable within a couple of hours (walking).

Perfect House For Big Occasions

As a holiday house, the former hotel promises a special experience for family get-togethers, friends' reunions, noteworthy occasions, wedding anniversaries and big birthdays. The all-ensuite bedrooms offer space and privacy when needed while the open-plan reception areas allow for everyone to come together for evening cocktails, fabulous meals, and late-night film viewing.

Private Parking

There are 2 parking spaces for your use in a secure car park nearby and there is further free, unrestricted on-street parking in ‘Warrior square’ (approx. 50m from the house) and on the hills up behind the house (Church road etc).

Former 5 Star Boutique Hotel In Hastings

Despite its coveted location, within easy reach of London and right opposite the beach, it's worth noting that Zanzibar is situated in a heavily residential area. Whilst we are happy to host big occasions, we are not able to hold events or noisy parties and we definitely do not permit sound systems.

Holiday House Where Dogs Are Welcome

Up to 2 dogs are permitted (by prior agreement) with an additional £50 cleaning fee and we ask that their access is limited to the ground floor and just a couple of the bedrooms. They will love the winter low tides and there are an abundance of parks and gardens a short walk from the house. The Hastings Country Park is ideal for longer walks and adventures.
