Stayed for one night, just before the new year to get away from it all. Was greeted by 'Tom' in reception who was very helpful. Room was very clean, tidy, cosy & warm. Hotel is in great central position for the local pubs & restaurants. After a very nice evening out we returned to the hotel to find our 'Tom'... More

Basic accommodation, fairly clean, I'm fussy so it didn't meet my standard but dirty mark on toilet seat & something nasty stuck to bedside cabinet top, not acceptable. Totally unprofessional set up, very casual on reception, one rude & surly receptionist encountered every day. Very surly on check out (I hadn't complained!!) didn't even say goodbye!!! Breakfast cheapest ingredients, very... More

Stayed at the river haven on the 30th December for one night and had a great stay. The beds were comfy and clean as was the room. Food was lovely, would recommend the lamb shank! Staff were very helpful and friendly, location spot on for Rye town centre. Would recommend a stay at this friendly hotel!

So before I review this hotel,if your planning to visit Rye,keep in mind parking is very very limited and you really have to book a hotel that offers parking if your planning to drive or your really going to have a problem. This is one of the few budget hotel's in Rye with parking provided. The decour is a little... More

Very nice hotel, very comfortable bed and nicely decorated. Staff very friendly. We would stay again if in Rye. Didn't have dinner as we were eating out for my birthday but breakfast was good, plenty of choice from a help yourself buffet.

We were amazed at how wonderful the place was; tidy, warm and friendly! All of the staff were super friendly and helpful, we were welcomed by the most lovely lady on reception and served at the bar by the nicest bar staff. We were there for a family party, and it was spectacular! My boyfriend and I were overly pleased... More

Unfortunately only stayed one night, very clean and comfortable, nice comfy beds and a good view if weather had been nicer.. Evening receptionist very helpful and friendly. Nice hotel would certainly stay longer if possible. Nice breakfast

We have just had a lovely weekend break here. 6 women all had our own rooms. Stayed 2 nights. Lovely comfortable rooms. Comfy soft beds. Very clean. Friendly staff. Breakfast nice. Eat as much as you like. Very good value for money. On the basic side. We didn't pay 5 star prices so we didn't expect it. Great place to... More

Our second visit here was as good as our first and won't be our last. Rooms are a good size with comfy beds and an array of complimentary toiletries and beverages. Good choice of food for breakfast Nothing is too much trouble for everyone here.

River Haven offers good value for money in an expensive town, at least as far as the rooms go. Breakfast was a negative point though. Good points: - Price and size of rooms; - Cleanliness of room (although bath had a few tiny hints of mould starting, which needed attending to - Room 8); - Very comfortable bed; - Helpful... More
