My wife and I were visiting Rye to play in their inaugural Ukulele Festival and decided that even though we don't live that far away it might be nice to stay the night and not have to worry about driving home after the festival was over. Also being a Bank Holiday Weekend it would offer the chance to explore Rye... More

Although my wife and I only stayed here for one night we would definitely return again. Couldn't find any fault. Very friendly welcoming staff. Comfortable, well appointed room. Good food. Ideal location.

A budget hotel in an expensive accommodation town, that nevertheless offered a reasonable quality of service and provision for the price. A real bonus was the free parking (unlike the pretty old town). Our room & bathroom were both large & had the bonus of a private terrace. The staff were generally friendly & helpful. The walk to the bottom... More

We have just returned after a 3day break and liked the hotel but with a few reservations though. We stayed in Room 12,which was supposed to be Superior but I would question that! The staff were very relaxed and friendly,the breakfasts were fine but we didn't have an evening meal. The bar was not a conventional hotel bar but staff... More

Stayed here with a group of 20 walkers. Good value accommodation for Rye. Rooms are fine - basic but with everything you need. They were very tolerant of us trooping in and out with walking boots, dogs etc. The staff here are excellent - really friendly, hardworking and can't do enough for you. We ate in the hotel both nights.... More

Ten of us stayed 3 nights on a cycling trip. Hotel is across the river not in the hilly town centre but still convenient for pubs and restaurants although immediate area is not the best. We had a very pleasant sizeable room on ground floor. Breakfast was excellent with menu choices on first two mornings but inexplicably changed to self... More

I booked 5 rooms at this hotel for a family celebration; compared to similar hotels in Rye it is very reasonably priced and the hotel itself was fine. Rooms were a decent size with ensuite facilities, breakfast was ok .It was easy to find and has parking; it is about a 10 minute walk into Rye.

We have stayed here a few times and are very impressed with the hotel. We decided to go away for a couple of days at Easter and booked the family room, it's a decent size, they have proper beds not camp beds for the children and their weren't worried about their age. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Previously when staying in Rye, we stayed with family or at the George or the Mermaid, both very good hotels although the George is becoming too expensive considering the rooms aren't particularly big. On this occasion both were fully booked for the weekend so we decided to give the River Haven a try as it was for one night only... More
