I've returned from a week's holiday in the UK and stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. As a single mum it was my only break alone this year, so it was important for me to have a relaxing time and to catch up on some sleep. The hotel is a beautiful historic building with an ideal location, the staff... More

It was one of the best hotels we have stayed at - excellent location, cosy interior, comfortable bed, great breakfast, lovely staff; it almost felt like a home - a 16th century home. We stayed in a Room 6 - with a lovely 4 Poster Bed - you can chose a room you are staying in. The town of Rye... More

What a lovely place The Old Borough Arms is! We stayed in the "small double", which is smaller than your average hotel room, but perfectly fine for a couple of nights. The important thing is it was spotlessly clean with a good sized shower ensuite. All staff were really helpful & friendly. The breakfast is yummy; great selection of cereal,... More

What excellent staff, service and a super spot to watch the day go by on the outdoor balcony. A pity we missed the opportunity to have a meal, as the kitchens were shut. A place to return to and likely have a long weekend.

I was visiting Rye for a wedding and had left it rather late to book a hotel. Luckily, I was able to book a couple of nights at the "Old Borough Arms". A really nice, comfortable couple of nights along with two very good full english breakfasts. Not too pretentious and good value considering the price of some of the... More

With a lack of proper hotels in this part of England, your choices are pretty much limited to bed-and-breakfast inns. This is a good little guesthouse, which I guess might be slightly down the peg from a bed-and-breakfast. Perhaps it's just the same thing with a different name. I'm not sure. Anyways, the Old Borough Arms has a great location,... More

Three nights well spent. Scaffolding obscured the front part which spoilt the view but we were pleased to know the old building is being well maintained. Comfortable rooms, and really pleasant owners and staff. Breakfasts were top notch, and worth 6 stars. Easy walk to top sites and antique shops and plenty of places to eat and drink. Would stay...

My friend and I stayed here for one night on a cycling trip across the south coast. The hostess was pleasant and helpful in meeting our needs. The price is a little expensive but I suppose it goes with the desirable location. Breakfast was of a high standard which helped counterbalance the cost. Nice place.
