    Stayed here last weekend and had a lovely time. The rooms are clean and well appointed, staff are really friendly and the brekkie is excellent! Parking is not available onsite but there is a car park closeby which is very reasonable. Definitely a great place to stay!

    What lovely accommodation,breakfast and hosts. The accommodation and breakfast were fantastic but what really excelled was the warm welcome from Sarah and Ian and staff. Sarah even took me into the kitchen to show me how she poached eggs when I asked how she got them perfect every time. We definitely would go back again and I'm sure we will.... More

    Located at the bottom of picture perfect Mermaid Street. Easy access to all the sites, shops and restaurants of Rye. Public car park opposite (£1 an hour). Historic main building full of character and breakfast area. Area below is a public café. Rooms are in a newer annexe. Characterless by comparison, but adequate and comfortable. Shower only.
