Yelton Hotel

From Historical Hastings

On the 17th of February 1979, there was a major rock-fall from the cliffs behind the hotel, completely destroying one room.[1] The name 'Yelton' comes from one of the owners, Michael Notley - who reversed the letters in his surname to give the hotel a name.

Now known as the White Rock Hotel
