The station has had several name changes: it was opened as Collington Wood Halt on 11 September 1905; closed a year later, it reopened as West Bexhill Halt, and then became Collington Halt in 1929; the Halt was dropped in 1969.
The station has two platforms linked by a footbridge. There are ticket machines on both platforms which have recently replaced the Permit to Travel machines. There are also train information displays on both sides of the station, as well as an information box with an automated announcer providing departure announcements.
The station's sponsorship has recently been acquired by Hastings Direct who now advertise below the station's nameplate.
The typical off-peak service is:
- 2tph (trains per hour) to Ore via Hastings
- 1tph to Brighton via Eastbourne and Lewes
- 1tph to London Victoria via Eastbourne, Gatwick Airport and East Croydon
