We went into the borough arms after a long day of shopping for a well needed cup of tea and some food, the staff made us feel at home right away and the customer service was fantastic, we would highly recommend the scotch eggs!

A warm welcome from Sarah and her staff, who were helpful with cases and parking information. Room 7 was comfortable and quiet with a nicely fitted bathroom. The bed was very comfortable so we had good nights rest. Breakfast was excellent, freshly prepared from tasty local ingredients with a good choice of yoghurts, fruit juices, pastries etc. Sarah kindly met... More

We were lucky enough to get a spot on the newly refurbished terrace for dinner. We went for my husbands birthday and were not disappointed. The menu consisted of locally sourced food and had something for everyone without over doing it. We had antipasti to start with ice cold wine and the evening sun, perfect. I had the lamb tagine...

A truly charming country inn. Exceptionally convenient location for strolling around Rye. Very good breakfast, and absolutely great roof deck (weather permitting) for evening drinks or breakfast. We had a very comfortable room with a clean, updated bathroom. Terrifically friendly and helpful staff, too.

Nice location and feel to the place. Car park opposite (Pay and display 0900-1900) Hotel and rooms fine. Breakfast good. Nice local pubs within 2minutes walk (One opposite) Bathroom clean, with toiletries, hair dryer. TV and DVD Player. One night stay, no problems at all. Useful note the hotel is accessible by steps outside

The Old Borough Arms was the perfect place to stay in Rye!!! It is a charming hotel with gorgeous rooms that marry an English cottage feel with a burst of modern vibrance. It is conveniently located just off Mermaid Street which puts you in a convenient location to explore Rye's small, winding streets. My husband and I stayed in Room... More

I stayed at the OBAH from 10-13th July 2014 with my wife and on arrival was shown to room 2, I agree with other reviewers comments regarding the size of the room and especially the shower room both were much smaller than expected. There is no where in the bathroom to place toiletries and eventually we balanced them on the... More

I was so looking forward to visiting my mum and seeing Rye what a BIG disappoinment not with Rye but the B&B. I was shown to Room 8 which was cramped dark and hot. For the price as far as I was concerned it was A RIP OFF, not a good first impression for our foreign visitors. You could not... More
