Stayed here for one night, due to our original hotel not having space on the friday evening for us. Staff were friendly, and hotel was clean and quiet. Rooms were basic, and a bit dated, but fine for a one night stay. The hotel is on the harbour wall, so a little bit of a walk to get in to... More

We last stayed here a couple of years ago and remembered what a convenient location it is, so we went back last week on a winter break. Yes, first impressions are that the place is a bit tired, but it is spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfortable and the room had absolutely everything we needed. The staff are really... More

I was staying in Rye for one night and picked the River Haven based upon a balance of decent reviews and it being a reasonable price. The hotel is nothing special to look at but the premium rooms look out onto the bay. The hotel rooms are of a reasonable size and it's fairly quiet. The best thing about the... More

We were visiting relatives who live in Rye and wanted to stay close by. We had the choice of several accommodations in the area and we are so glad we chose River Haven. The room was very comfortable and the complementary kettle, tea, water, and biscuits were a nice touch. The staff was very courteous and attended to every need.... More

Stayed one night. Easy to find on the main Hastings road, parking good, walking distance of train and bus stations. About 5 mins walk from the historic town area. Service in the bar (at 5pm) was a bit lacking. Generally seemed to be overstaffed if anything - talking to each other rather than giving customer service. River frontage is a... More

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night break at the River haven, we had a very enjoyable stay. The hotel is ideally situated a short stroll from the town. It has ample parking. Breakfast was cooked perfectly with generous portions. Room was clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water. Would most definitely return.

Myself and my Wife had a one night stay here, we wanted somewhere convenient to explore Rye. This was perfect as it was only a 2/3 minute walk to the town. We had a garden view room which overlooks the tidal river. The whole experience was very pleasant. I booked directly with the Hotel which was polite and friendly. On... More

I stayed here recently with my sister, and it really is a great location from which to explore Rye as it's an easy 10-minute walk into the old town. Having on-site parking is a big plus - we were there in winter, but in summer this would be even more helpful. My room was very clean, very comfortable and wonderfully... More

Stayed at the Riverside hotel for a 2 week period with work. Like the title says its basic but the staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and the food in the restraunt is of a good standard. I ate breakfast every morning and it was always a good standard and the evening meal was very nice as well. Ideal... More
