The staff were super friendly and efficient. Our room was very quaint with wonderful views over the river. Breakfast was great but the evening dinner menu was unimaginative and poorly presented. Overall a great stay and perfectly placed for exploring Rye.

A beautiful, welcoming hotel in a delightful location.The restaurant was very good and although we had booked a small double room, it was perfect for our overnight stay.
