Once voted the worst city to stay in for a weekend break, THE British seaside town has garnered some praise on the internet.
There are plenty of great coastal towns in the country for those looking for a holiday getaway – but apparently the lesser appreciated towns are also well worth a visit.
In a list published by consumer experts, Which? Last year Hastings was the least visited city by Britons.
The rating was based on feedback from visitors who rated locations in various categories, including food and drink, accommodation and cultural attractions.
Accordingly SussexLiveThe city received “a rating of two out of five for “Food and Drink”, a rating of three out of five for “Accommodation” and a rating of three out of five for “Cultural Attractions”.
They say, “The city was also rated two for ‘ease of getting around,’ two for ‘value for money,’ and three for ‘lack of crowds.'”
The tiktoker Sali Mamutchadze (@sali_mamutchadze) completely disagreed with the “Which?” poll, which describes the city as “underrated” and “so pretty.”
In a video She shared that Hastings was “so worth a visit” as she showed off her favorite places in town.
