We recently stayed at the newly refurbished King's Head at the top of the hill going into Rye. On arrival we were greeted with smile by and checked in by Lucy and shown to our room, 'The White Room.' The room like the rest of The Kings Head is finished to a very high standard. Spotlessly clean with a real... More

It was extremely comfortable and absolutely... More

We watched the old 'Top of the hill' close and thought it would go the way of most pubs and become another set of flats. But to our and many other local people's suprise, after renovation it reopened under its original name the Kings Head. And what a fantastic job the owners have made.Today we took some friends for lunch.... More

Our first visit to the Kings Head since it's complete refurbishment and new management. Food was really lovely and the service was very attentive, which is refreshing these days. We shall be returning for lunch very soon. Ignore any negative feed back prior to the new owners taking over as Trip advisor refuse to delete it. On that point, Trip... More

We recently stayed at the Kings Head. The room we had was called the Champagne Room and it made us feel like royalty. The Queen size bed was the best bed I've ever slept in. We arrived mid afternoon to a warm welcome, and showed to our room. The young girl even offered to carry our bags. During the evening... More

Had a beautiful weekend away staying at the Kings Head. The hotel has been completely refurbished and looks great.

Had a lovely stay here. The decor and cleanliness encouraged relaxation. We stayed in the Parisian room, which had its own little 'living room' space, handy for me who is an early riser and likes to read while my husband sleeps on...This room is at the front of the premises next to the road, so take some earplugs if you...
