Welcome to the Old Hastings House website

Old Hastings House was acquired by the Magdalen and Lasher Charity in 1981 and is run on a not-for-profit basis.

The main building is a fine house that was built in 1700 and became the home for an eighteenth century mayor of Hastings. Standing in its own grounds the house has 44 en-suite bedrooms, three-quarters of which are situated within the two extensions built in the 1980s. Our Magdalen Higher Care Suite has a further 15 en-suite bedrooms.

Recently we’ve opened our All-Saints Suite from February 2023 which has increased our dedicated and secure dementia provision to 24 rooms, it also provides an additional conservatory and additional communal space.

Priding itself on its family atmosphere, Old Hastings House has fine views across Hastings Old Town and is located within walking distance of local shops and amenities.

A resident handbook specific to the part of the home the new resident resides is made available on admission. This Information Book aims to provide you with all the background information in respect of the care that you will receive at Old Hastings House, together with information about the services offered within the home.
