We stayed for 5 nights on a bed/breakfast/evening meal basis ( which included a bottle of house wine every evening!) It was great value for money, arranged directly with the hotel. The bedrooms are all individual ranging from 4 poster suites with own lounge to smaller doubles on the top floor, some with great views over the town and Romney... More

We stayed at the Hope Anchor in early June - we had two rooms, one for myself and girlfriend and one for my parents. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hope Anchor and would happily return. The rooms were well equipped (hairdryers, coffee & tea, biscuits, slippers etc) and very comfortable. We also enjoyed views across the village... More

Some friends and I stayed at the Hope Anchor Hotel in Rye on Saturday night. We absolutely loved this hotel. The staff are superb; professional, helpful and most welcoming. The hotel itself is a wonderful mix of old and new. We had a combination of Deluxe Doubles and Four Poster Rooms, all of which were beautifully presented. There was a... More

We booked a 2 night break via Travel Zoo which was excellent value for money. This is a small hotel but right from the start we were impressed by the excellent staff. They worked tirelessly to accommodate all our needs. Courteous and efficient nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant food was also good and the breakfasts were delicious. We... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night and were so appreciative of the consideration and care shown by all the hotel staff. From our initial welcome at reception, to our departure on next day nothing was too much trouble. The staff were courteous, friendly and accommodating at all times. We stayed in a small room overlooking the harbour which... More

The room was lovely, a nice chair to sit by the window and look at the view,with coffee,tea and a selection of... More

To all the wonderful staff at the Hope Anchor My wife and I came along on Friday 30th May 2014, our room was lovely and comfortable, clean with a great view, but the highlight of this hotel is, in our opinion, the food. My wife had Mushroom soup, and I had Tiger prawns in garlic and coriander, to follow my... More

We were recommended to stay here by friends and so pleased we were. The hotel is in an imposing position in the old town, both of which have character in spades. Our deal included three nights, dinner, bed and breakfast including a bottle of wine from a reasonable selection including a £17 Shiraz and an £18 Riesling. All for £140... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Although famous for its past, the Hope Anchor is known locally for its stunning views across the Quayside, Romney Marshes, Camber Castle and beyond to the sea. Most of our rooms enjoy these panoramic views and to be honest they need to be seen to be believed. Although beautiful all year round the sunsets in summer bring locals young and old to enjoy alfresco dining accompanied of course with a glass or two of wine! ... more   less
