Markets itself as a luxury hotel in Rye. Certainly full of character. But remember that it's based in an old building, which extends across the top of several shops, so it is a place of stairs and changes of level. A little surprised on arrival that there was no obvious Reception desk, just a couple of desks in the hall,... More

So I am not giving this hotel a great rating I know and others may be more impressed than I. We stayed two nights in a luxury room which was at the front of the hotel and you had to walk through the outside patio area to reach so I was glad it did not rain! The room furniture was... More

We had a room overlooking the high street beautifully furnished in boutique style furnishings.A lovely deep bath in the room. It was a warm summers day and you could only open one window slightly open which we wedged with a shampoo bottle as it slid down.we were provided with a fan which helped to keep things slightly cooler. The disappointing... More

We stayed at The George in June 2015 and had a very pleasent stay. The hotel is located on the main road running through the town which is narrow and finding a parking space outside the hotel is very difficult. We parked at a council carpark located nearby. Rye is a beautiful place to visit with arty shops and nice... More

Dear 'lomasteam' Thank you for your review. We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you plan to return. We're sorry to hear that you struggled to pull up outside the hotel. We recommend the Cattle Market car park (off Rope Walk) which is a 4 minute walk from the hotel and charges £1.50 for 24 hours.... More

The hotel, staff, service and ambience was fantastic however we were really disappointed with our evening meal which was decidedly average and took along time to come. All three tables to the side of us commented/complained to the waitress. Would we go back? Probably not but only because of the evening meal which is a real shame because the staff... More

I visited the hotel for lunch whilst on a holiday visit to East Sussex. The Hotel is conveniently located in the centre of Rye, close to shops and other amenities. Lunch in the courtyard was an amazing experience.

This is an excellent hotel of an unusual construction of wood and medieval style brick work. Very comfortable beds and rooms; excellent catering, and a nice bar. Right in the town centre tho no parking nearby; public areas are slightly cramped and running int o each other up and down stairs. Probably not too user friendly for the very elderly... More

Dear 'RayPorter' Thank you for your kind and candid review. We're glad you found the beds comfortable and The Grill excellent. Our Grade II listed Hotel dates back from 1575 and although it was subject to extensive renovations between 2004 and 2007, we were careful not to compromise its history or its charm. We hope you will come back and... More

This hotel offered everything we needed. The staff were really helpful, our room a delight, the food well presented and delicious, and the outside areas comfortable and well thought out. It is right in the centre of Rye, and although there is no on sight parking, there is a very reasonable car park nearby.

We spent the weekend at the George attending a friends wedding and it was brilliant. Our room was large, tastefully furnished with fabulous Ren products in the bathroom. The breakfast was delicious and we ate in the grill on Friday night which was a great way to kick off our stay. Overall the experience was positive and we will return.
