We had a lovely overnight stay with lunch & dinner. I had to change my booking to add another teenager at short notice, they couldn't help more. The food is lovely, so nice we had two meals, very busy in the evening we had to wait 25 mins for desert and next morning for a coffee but when asked its... More

Stayed for 2 nights. The room was nice, with a massive, comfortable bed. Nice shower, tasty breakfast and the staff were very friendly and professional. The room was a bit chilly when we arrived as there was no heating on.

My daughters and I had the best stay here. We stayed in the newly built log cabin, which was beautifully and thoughtfully decorated. It was a real home from home. The b&b is situated in an ideal place as it is within walking distance from the town. The staff were very friendly and considerate and couldn't do enough for us.... More

We spend a Saturday evening at the Kings Head while visiting the area. We found our room (cottage number 5) to be clean and exactly to description. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful and the meal we had in the evening was very good too at a reasonable price. Great full English in the morning and then... More

We stayed at the Kings Head Inn Rye for two nights as a birthday short break. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lady who handed us the key to Cottage Room 4 and directed us to cross the car park to the room. This lady may have been the proprietor, we don't know, because she did not introduce herself... More

We arrived early and got a warm welcome and were let check in early. We were lucky to be in the fabulous Champagne room. It was luxurious so comfortable and clean. Lots of little touches that made homely but chic. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We had lunch which was great and the breakfast was fabulous. The most... More

Myself and my partner stayed here for one night in late March this year. Although busy serving meals at the time check in was sorted out quickly and with a smile. We had one of the cottages and it was extremely nice and very comfortable. We did not eat here in the evening but breakfast in the morning was excellent... More

Lovely, clean rooms. A good size for a family of four and the beds were excellent - all of us had a good sleep. Dinner was great (from the specials board), sitting in the garden in the cool of a summers evening playing cards. Hotel is a 5 minute drive from Rye itself but not being in the centre means... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Steve and Lisa go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable in every way. They have an eye for detail and the bar, restaurant and rooms are finished with a touch of class. The rates are very affordable and the food... More
