We all enjoyed staying in this charming house for our two night stay in Rye Harbour. Simon and Tracey have perfected the art of welcome - what a lovely couple. They have decorated The Old Vicarage in a unique and pleasing style. Rooms immaculate. Breakfasts were a delight, lots of cooked choices and a varied selection of fruit and cereals... More

Simon and Tracey create such a relaxed atmosphere, you feel you've known them for years. Cup of tea on your return? No problem and all with Tracey's fabulous shortbread; superb breakfasts -possibly the best bacon ever, followed by Tracey's home baked treats; great rooms; detailed local knowledge and a great location next to the harbour and nature reserve. Just suggest... More

We only stayed here one night in July as were visiting family in the area. Had we known how lovely the area was and how great the Old Vicarage was we would have stayed longer. We stayed in the Marsh room which I believe was the smallest room but were pleasantly surprised. The room was perfectly adequate and had everything... More

Very stylish and luxurious B&B. We stayed in the Harbour suite - Large and airy bedroom with very comfortable bed and beautiful views of the harbour. The spacious bathroom had a roll top bath, separate shower with massage jets, lovely dimmer light for a relaxing soak. Spotlessly clean (we have never stayed anywhere as sparkling clean as this B&B before)... More

Beautifully appointed rooms, very helpful owners, very good breakfast, and lovely peaceful location a short drive from Rye centre. We arrived late - no problem; breakfast request not on the menu - no problem. What more could you ask for.

We dined in the first evening and had a superb 3 course meal cooked by Tracey which was so delicious we booked dinner for the rest of our stay. Afternoon tea with homemade cake and... More

Just back from our third stay at the Old Vicarage at Rye Harbour, once again we thoroughly enjoyed the break. Both Simon & Tracey are the perfect hosts, the accommodation is spotless, the breakfast better than excellent, nothing too much trouble, all in all they most definitely deserve their 5 star rating. We totally recommend this B&B & will be... More
