We stayed 2 nights this week and what a find. The hotel is in a perfect beautiful spot in Rye. We instantly lived the place. We were greeted by Amanda who was lovely, she showed us to our room and gave us the run down. The room was lovely. The apothecary. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful as we're all the staff.... More

It's quite a few months now since we stayed at this wonderful B&B in Rye but memories of the warmth and charm of its delightful owners, Jenny and Richard, have not faded. We loved our cosy attic room at the top of the stairs, the views and the unbeatable location in glorious Mermaid Street. And no review would be complete... More

Picturesque and delightful setting. A warm welcome awaits you, comfortable rooms with comfy beds, a good breakfast choice in an elegant dining/breakfast room. A most enjoyable 2 day break in the very pretty town of Rye which has cobbled streets, places of interest, independent shops, cafes and restaurants.

The whole town is charming but when you walk in the front door, you know this is special. Hundreds of years old, and lovingly restored by Jenny and her husband, each room is different. Amanda greeted us warmly, got us to our rooms, sorted out the parking. Cute bar off the lobby. My room had a power shower, greatly appreciated.... More

From the first moment through the door you realise that this is a special place. The attention is very personal and you feel that you matter. We stayed for five nights which, because we had not booked, meant that we would have to change rooms a couple of times. This was no problem as staff moved our luggage so the... More

A charming place on a charming street in a charming town, what could be nicer! The rooms are all different and beautifully decorated. Ours, 'Benson ' had a shower but next time (because we definitely plan to return) we shall choose a room with a bath for some leisurely soaking after a full day on our feet exploring the many...

Excellent stay, extremely well decorated and deserving more than its 5* going beyond just ticking the boxes on a review rating form. Although a B&B it would rate well as a hotel, being a B&B it does not have staff waiting on you 24-7 our bags were carried to our room even though we had arrived early, You are treated... More

A friend of mine said it looks too good to be true - great TripAdvisor reviews, beautiful rooms and a reasonable price. Believe me it isn’t. We stayed for a weekend and I have to say that Jeake’s is fantastic. A beautifully furnished, welcoming hotel situated on one of the most beautiful and historic streets in Rye. The owners, Jenny...
