The River Haven Hotel is conveniently situated in the centre of Rye and has it’s own large car park. The receptionist was friendly and efficient, and our room - ‘a superior double’ was quite large, well furnished and had a very comfortable bed. The room had access to it’s own small patio area, with a table and chairs, overlooking the... More

We were 2 families travelling with 5 children under the age of 9. The family rooms were great, proper beds for the children, as well as a cot bed. Rooms were immaculate and quiet. Breakfast was great, help yourself, but freshly cooked as well. Lovely young man on reception who couldn't do enough for us, and all the staff felt... More

Clean and bright room, nice location A couple of minor criticisms: There was only 1 member of staff handling reception and the bar on an August... More

Received a friendly welcome here. Rooms spacious, clean and well appointed (bottled water - still and sparkling a nice touch, tissues, hair dryer etc) and provided toothpaste when I realised I'd left mine behind. Hotel set on the edge of a narrow river so nice to sit out and look at the boats and watch the come up the river.... More

Two night break but not long enough! Lovely hotel, spotlessly clean, ultra-friendly staff who could not be more helpful. Everything you could possibly want. Food was gorgeous and very reasonably priced but just a bit too much on the plate. (Not a gripe, just a personal opinion). We would definitely stay there again.
