"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

My family travelled from Canterbury to Rye and found this hotel through reviews in trip advisor. Based on the reviews I had expected an average hotel. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel and the price offered. The price were comparable to Travelodge but the rooms and services were far greater than what is offered at Travelodge. The reception... More

On first impression it was like walking into a care home! Not sure if that was what it was built for originally! However although very 80's it was clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and accomodating. There was a cheesy disco on the saturday night which we did end up and had a laugh. Still breakfast self service... More

I visited here in October 2014 and really enjoyed staying at this hotel. It almost feels like a family run hotel. Rooms were clean. Did not eat dinner here as we went out but breakfast was nice. The receptionist, James, was really helpful and could not have done any more for us, helping with the TV as we had a... More

An average place located quite close to the center, albeit on the 'rougher' side of the river. Off-street private parking is great. Breakfast was OK, not up there with the best, but not with the worst either. But, but.... In this day and age to have such a woeful WiFi, that they know and tell you works pretty much only... More

Independent hotel and all the better for it. Very comfortable room and lovely bed. So good to have a proper double bed, not 2 singles pushed together. Nice outlook and windows that actually open. Ask to be on the river side if possible. So nice to be able to set my own room temperature rather than rely on some vague... More

We stayed for 1 night. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and responsive. Our room was a good size and the bathroom was very clean. Unlike another reviewer there was plenty of space for toiletries. I agree that a hand held shower would be useful though probably not essential. The room also had plenty of... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights at the hotel over the weekend of 11 and 12 October as part of a larger group that had booked most of the rooms, and we were most impressed with the value for money and service. The welcome was warm without being fussy and the room was clean and the bed comfortable. The... More

Stayed here for a few nights recently, not quite as the pictures look online, was a bit surprised when we booked in as the rooms are not that cheap really. The one we were in was a good size but could really do with updating, quite an old looking bathroom and no space to place any toiletries had to keep... More
