Rye is a pretty little town we visited on our way from London to Brighton. We had not booked accomodation and we discovered the River Haven Hotel due to its main locale proximity and it's easy and plentiful parking. We were greeted on arrival from owner/ manager who upgraded us to lovely ground floor room with outside balcony. Breakfast was... More

The River Haven Hotel is a modern hotel along the river in Rye. The hotel has parking space (important in Rye) and it is only a few minutes walk to Rye. Clean rooms with good beds. But the hotel lacks atmosphere. The (english) breakfast could be of a better quality

a very clean, friendly, quiet and comfortable stay. Nice sized family room very suitable for 2 plus 2. Good bathroom with plenty of towels and supplies. Breakfast very nice and evening meal enjoyable. Plenty of parking on site. We will be back. Certainly recommended.

This is a great hotel. The staff are very happy and this shines through to the service the food is very good. The seafood is hard to beat. The price is one of the lowest in Rye. The number of people that come here from. Year to year speaks volumes of this hotel. Highly recommend .

Initially an unprepossessing building on the outskirts of town, but actually a real find. Plenty of parking - a necessity in this town of tiny streets, and nothing in a 'boutique' hotel that you won't find here. Quiet, comfortable, decent internet & plenty of hot water. Good breakfast & friendly service. Easy walk to town & not expensive. Would return.

Very clean friendly staff and made most welcome .The staff could not do enough to help you. Rye centre within five mins walk with loads of nice eating places quite hilly with some cobbled streets lots of antique shops it you like that sort of thing. Overall a very pleasant stay and would highly recommend it

The hotel is relatively modern and is located on the river bank opposite Rye town centre. Its very good value, a lot cheaper than hotels in town and is only about five minutes walk along the river bank into town. Our room was quite large although the view was of a hedge but we were only there for one night... More

Have just come back from a weekend in Rye and stayed at The River Haven Hotel. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble especially Linda the manager. Who last night let us have her parking spot as the car park was full. Will definitely be back again.

Have no complaints, especially as this hotel appears to be the only one in Rye that doesn't charge ridiculous rates. The room was spacious and comfortable and although the building may not be the most attractive it's next to the river and a short walk into the town and the train station. The buffet cooked breakfast was very good and... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Positives: it is really clean, good free parking, literally two minutes walk into town, nice breakfast, not much choice but well cooked. Room sizes are generous and all you need in the bedroom and bathroom. It is a little old fashioned but in comparison to the rates of other hotels it is recommended. We would... More
