We only wanted a bed for the night before meeting friends the next day but we got so much more! Everything was just perfect, welcoming staff, cosy room with luxurious bath and food that was out of this world! We wished we were staying longer!

What a delightful place for a lovely meal. The decor and service are superb. We had an excellent dinner here,superb steak for me and fish for my husband. Good size helpings too,just a shame we could not manage a desert,as they looked lovely. The owner was very good, managing to find us a table as we had not booked. Fabulous.

We had stayed at the Hope Anchor in 2014, and had no hesitation in booking in there again this year. The standards are still high, with particularly friendly and obliging staff in every area. The rooms are perhaps a little tired, but well equipped and in many cases with splendid views over this pretty town and its surroundings. Excellent breakfasts... More

The hotel was in a wonderful position at the top of the amazing old town, and our room, the Sankey suite, had extensive views, a four poster bed, and a little TV sitting room with two very comfortable leather armchairs. The bathroom was a little old fashioned but functional and clean and the water piping hot.

Very charming hotel, went as a weekend escape from London. Nice spacious room, well heated. The staff was great and helpful. Nice little pub, and very good restaurant. Would definitely recommend when in Rye.

My husband and I ate at this hotel on Tuesday 17th March 2015. We had a fantastic meal the food was extremely well presented and served, my husband had fillet steak and I had lamb both as good as each other. There was a special offer running at the time, three courses of your choice and a bottle of wine... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights and would highly recommend it . Perfect position in the very centre of the old town so close to all sights and amenities. Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated yet retaining plenty of its original charm. Breakfast was excellent......plenty of choice and very good quality produce. We ate in the restaurant on one of the... More

Stayed at this lovely Hotel on Sunday and Monday for a family birthday. We received a very warm welcome on our arrival. The room was very clean and cosy with a lovely view across Rye Harbour and the surrounding marshlands. There was five of us in our arty and we booked the restaraunt in advance based on previous reviews. We... More
