We only stayed one night but it was still a fabulous visit. The room was beautiful and spacious. We loved the vintage reading chairs and decor. The service was good and all members of staff were friendly. Rye is a great place to visit and staying at The George was a real treat.

I booked this hotel for 3 nights when my daughter came out of hospital. We were told only a junior suite was available. The junior suite turned out to be a convertd shed up a rickety staircase in the courtyard.None of the velux wndows opened, we had to drag a chair from the bedroom into the bathroom & stand on...

This hotel was absolutely lovely. The staff are so friendly and cant do enough for you, they make you feel so welcome from the moment you arrive. We had room 41 which is one of the suites and it was lovely, very luxurious, but be warned it can be very hot. The food here is superb and I cannot recommend... More

My husband and I got in engaged at the George in 2014 and returned this month for our wedding day. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the George could host our wedding as when we had stayed previously we had never come across the Ballroom and Benson bar. As soon as we saw the Ballroom we knew we'd found... More

We were attending a friends wedding and decided to make the most of our freedom and stay over! Upon arrival the room was not ready however this was not a problem as the very helpful receptionist took our luggage and stored it then had it placed in our room. Parking is an issue and although there is a town car... More

We stopped off here on a visit to the South Coast whilst en route to visit family in Kent. Decided on Rye as half way to our final destination from an overnight stay in Brighton (at the Grand - very corporate). The George was a world away from that stay, it was small, friendly and quirky and more importantly we... More

We got engaged in Rye and returned 12 years later to the George for our wedding anniversary. This is a lovely hotel with service, rooms and food to match. This is not a run of the mill hotel but one which has been created with flair, energy and passion. Lots of seafood and amazing meat on the menu, with a... More

This hotel, according to the literature in the rooms is an Eco hotel. There are many claiming this and I don't really know if there is any specific criteria but it may explain some of the oddities. In my experience 'Eco' can often be translated to parsimony. Our bathroom had no windows so got very steamy when showering. I told... More

Attractive town centre hotel, Not quite cosy enough to be a boutique hotel, Our room was pleasing unique, Large and self contained with good quality fixtures and fabulous bed Needs a little more love from the maintenance team to keep up the high standard it deserves The restaurant didn't quite woo us enough to dine, But the breakfast was most...
