Please look at our other properties on this site 861929 and 924830 for an idea of the standard of luxury befitting this property and read our rave reviews which will help convince you that booking this lovely apartment will be a good call.
Marine Court became famous in the 1930's when it was first built for being the tallest building in Europe at 13 storeys high - how times have changed! It remains however a well-known landmark to this day and will no doubt give you a holiday to remember!
Our apartment within this building is decorated in the best contemporary style as a wonderful coastal retreat for romantic weekends or longer holidays alike and we know you will love staying here.
You will be able to walk out onto the seafront when you come and go from the building whilst nestling at the back of an important building in English history, so enjoy the marvels of Hastings and this part of the coastline in east Sussex.
There is an incredible amount to do around this area to occupy you during your stay, whether you are a walker/rambler, historian, garden fanatic, regular tourist or just want a quiet time at the seaside with some wonderful seafood meals, you will find this location has something for everyone! Hastings Sailing Club is just across the road if that is one of your passions.
It is even an area rich for geocaching if you find this is a current interest but for those romantics amongst us, this is a romantic haven overlooking the sea, with a double sofa-bed in the sitting room to sleep an extra 2 people if necessary making this suitable for up to 4 people.
Local Activities: There is a lot to see in Hastings to keep you busy for many days. Whether you wish to explore the many historic locations around this area in: Battle, Rye and Bexhill-on-sea, or prefer to enjoy the coastline and take some leisurely walks, you will be assured that you can do it all based in this wonderful location. Hastings is one of Britain's oldest fishing ports. Fishing boats have worked from the beach in front of the old town for over a thousand years and are now a tourist attraction. The Fisherman’s Museum contains one of these fishing boats and the building was constructed around it Nearby Castles and Forts can be found at: Pevensey, Herstmonceux, Scotney, Bodiam and Camber. The Bodiam Castle in particular is a well preserved and beautiful castle with a moat in a lovely river location. There are also many amazing festivals around this area throughout the year, which are well-worth attending, showing how vibrant this community can be. Hastings enjoys loads of sun in the summer in fact supposedly is one of the towns which enjoys more sun than anywhere in the UK!
Seaside and Seafood Fare: Hastings is one of only a few of the old style fishing locations where you will see every day the fishing vessels hauled onto the beach after the early morning fish. As a result the Fish and Chips in any of the local sea front cafes/restaurants is about as fresh as it could be. Some sellers along the front sell cups of shelled prawns, clams, cockles and other types of seafood for you to enjoy. The fish shop nestled amongst the Fisherman’s Wharf (the old black timber constructions), is definitely worth a visit and is fun for children to see all the varieties available. A favourite restaurant is Cosmo’s (Chinese/Asian) on the Sea-front. Enjoy an all you can eat buffet while a Teppanyaki chef cooks your choice of fresh food while you wait. Other Asian delights of Sushi and the usual Duck pancakes, tiger prawns etc are on offer and there is even chicken nuggets and chips for the less adventurous in your party. Definitely worth a visit after a day of working up an appetite at the seaside!
Leisure Activities/Tourist Attractions: Hastings Aquarium, Fisherman’s Museum, Pitch n’ Putt (sea-front), Great Dixter House and Gardens (Rye), Bodiam Castle (Robertsbridge), Merriments Gardens (Hurst Green) Great Dixter House and Gardens (Northiam, Rye), Finchcocks Musical Museum, Pashley Manor Gardens (Ticehurst), Pevensey Castle, Battle Abbey and Battlefield, De La Warr Pavillion (Bexhill–on-Sea), Battle Museum of Local History, Pevensey Court House Museum and Jail, The Stade Jerwood Art Gallery
WALKS: The Coastal Path and the Country Park walks are stunning as well as walks around the town. Walk from the top of East Cliff down the windy road and you will get to the historic old town with some truly wonderful old buildings to marvel at and enjoy, many still characterful residences to this day!
CYCLING: there is a wonderful cycle path route along the entire length of the sea-front on the promenade (soon to extend to Bexhill) – be prepared though for oblivious pedestrians to amble across your path!
Hastings is now becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination and at last the Pier is being renovated (burned down in a fire a few years ago), so with the pier up and running, it will be ever more popular. Come and stay - we know you will have a lovely time!

We have designed this apartment and particularly this bedroom to reflect the Art Deco era of this building.
This building is steeped in history as at the time of being built in 1932, it was the tallest building in Europe and was hailed as a flag-ship building in architecture at the time, designed to emulate an Ocean Liner in the Golden Age of the Cruise Liner. It was bombed in the second world war and had to be extensively repaired at that time so much of the top few floors are of a more recent time and further floors were added making it taller. Locals and historians alike, love it or hate it, appreciate its importance in the history of architectural achievements.
After many years of neglect and mismanagement, there is an ongoing maintenance programme which is slowly bringing the building up to its former glory which is exciting to see!...moreless
The bathroom in this apartment has the toilet, basin and bath with a shower attachment above in the centre of the bath.

We have created a stylish modern retreat for a romantic get away or a base for all your historic pursuits whilst you visit this area. There is no-where else like this building around this coast of England and we believe our apartments (we have two) in this building are the best of the lot!
If you want to have a lovely sea-view over the beach and sea and want some Art Deco style during your stay, book the SEAVIEW apartment. Or for a more secluded and cosy stay in our smaller apartment which is more like a hotel suite, book the BOUTIQUE AND STYLISH apartment which is at the back of the building but has a outside terrace for al-fresco dining when the weather permits.
Each photo we are showing here shows which apartment it is by showing either 'BOUTIQUE' or 'SEA-VIEW' at the start, so you can see which of the two you would prefer for your stay. However they are both gorgeous, so you can't go too far wrong with either, its just down to personal taste and budget at the end of the day (and availability of course)!
