We stayed a couple of nights at the lovely River Haven, room was clean, comfortable and a joy to stay in, property was the same with an excellent restaurant, it was cheaper to stay here than many B & B's across the road and much better than many, just one thing spoiled it, we stayed Saturday night and Sunday morning's...

Walking to the River Haven from Rye Station, we felt disappointed. The underside of the town, busy traffic, finally a street filled with derelict buildings, waste ground....But once through the Reception door of the hotel: quiet, order, calm, space, subdued good taste. Friendly, good-humoured staff sympathised with our experience, gave directions for a riverside walk to the town, helped with... More

Stayed in this hotel recently and found it very good. There is parking on site and its easy to find. On leaving the hotel towards the rear its a pleasant walk along the river and over the bridge and you are in central town in about 4-5 mins. The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly you and... More

Just back from a one night stay at the River Haven Hotel. I needed somewhere easily accessible for my elderly mother. Located on level ground beside the river, with parking right outside and ground floor bedrooms, this was ideal. It is a short walk into the centre of Rye. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and... More

Had our second stay at this hotel (almost 2 years between stays) and it is still a well run clean hotel. Breakfast was as good as last time if not better. We will be staying here again and would have no problem recommending others to stay here.

My partner and I have been going to the River Haven Hotel for some time now. We find it relaxing, clean, value for money, food isn't too bad either but breakfast is best!. Staff are always very helpful and friendly. It is alaways best to book well in advance if you require weekends or specific rooms.

We stayed for one night in February for a family event. A welcoming reception on arrival. Good quality bedrooms with no noise. The location is excellent, right on the river. When we needed a taxi for a short trip the manager drove us herself! First class service. We'll stay longer next time.

Someone had a major birthday so we decided to spend a couple of days in Rye, a town we are familiar with, though usually on our way elsewhere. Booking was easy & with small falling the hotel was pretty quiet. We were immeadiately offered an upstairs room with a view of the River which was considerate. Room was clean &... More

"Sunday Lunch Carvery" proclaims the board outside this family run hotel located on the banks of the River Tillingham opposite Strand Quay, right in the heart of Rye. River Tillingham - does that ring a bell? Gave its' name to the fictional town of Tilling of E F Benson's book and recent Mapp and Lucia TV dramatisation fame that was... More
