A good value hotel in Rye that is also an interesting place to stay - it is built into the old town wall and there are exposed sections of the wall inside the hotel. My only criticism is that the bed was far too soft and squashy; I did not sleep very well at all and I would not want... More

A lovely short break in Rye, East Sussex: we stayed at Old Borough Arms for a 3 day mid week break. It is in an excellent location for exploring the lovely town. All staff were very welcoming and friendly. The room comfortable, bathroom clean and the breakfasts excellent and freshly cooked. The only downside is the lack of own parking,... More

Located within a few minutes walking distance of the High Street and the rest of old Rye town this is a lovely place to stay. Very welcoming and friendly owners and a clean room with all the facilities we needed for our night away. The breakfast was excellent. Highly recommended.

A moderate priced b and b within Rye, handy for the town and restaurants. No parking but you can park in car park nearby for £7 per day. Not sure if any of the other hotels in the centre have parking either, after all it's a medieval town! Excellent breakfast, service and comfortable bed and room, far outweighs the bother... More

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!

We had originally booked to stay in camber but our accommodation was terrible and so we called the borough arms on the off chance of finding a last minute room. We were really lucky as they had just had a cancellation and the lady on reception was very helpful. The bed and breakfast is in a really great location right... More

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
