Lovely location but needs some work
We stayed at the White Rock at the start of August. You can't fault the location of the Hotel right on the sea front close to the station. Unfortunately the service really let's the hotel down. When we arrived we had to wait 15 minutes at reception for someone to check us in, when we went to breakfast the first morning the lady that served us seemed genuinely put out that we asked to see the menu. The food was ok but there are far better options close by. The room was clean and well decorated but the bathroom was dated, dirty and its impossible to use the shower without covering the floor in water. The main reception and restaurant would of seemed really fresh and modern in the early 2000's unfortunately the hotel has been left behind. You'll see from other reviews the rooms are hot. They provide a fan but we had to remove the duvet from the cover to get any sleep.

great apart from traffic noise
The hotel was great except for it's situation, yes we asked for a sea view but didn't realise the road in front of our room was the main road through Hastings, lots of noisy traffic, sirens etc, although we had a juliette balcony it was impossible to sleep with the doors open even at night during the heatwave. We found parking a problem for the 5 days we were there, and when at home saw on the website we could have asked reception for a free evening car park pass opposite the hotel, which we should have been told about. But food etc was great.

Great for a theatre visit.
We stayed at the White Rock Hotel as we were visiting the theatre next door. This was an ideal location for such a visit.

Great seafront hotel!
Lovely room on 3rd floor, very comfy bed and lovely bathroom. Lots of noise from the creaky floorboards in the corridor, but that’s to be expected in an old building. Sea view was awesome, breakfast incredibly reasonable and very tasty, and patio/terrace for drinks was a nice little bonus! Would definitely stay here again!
