Oaklands is a well appointed and very comfortable location for a stay of a few days. Hosts Diane and Tony provide an attentive yet relaxed service and are very quick to put guests at their ease. The house is delightful and our room (the Rye room) was very pleasant. Highly recommended.

My husband and I had 5 nights with Diane and Tony and found them wonderful hosts very helpful and friendly. A lovely view from our beautifully decorated bedroom which was very clean and well maintained. Great breakfasts. Felt like they were our friends not paying guests. If we are ever back in the uk we would stay there again

We had a wonderful weekend at Oaklands which is set in beautiful surroundings just outside of Rye. Diane and Tony were the perfect hosts who couldn't do enough for us. The room was spotless and very comfortably and tastefully furnished. The breakfast was delicious with lots of choice and Diane made fresh croissants and bread daily. There was also a... More

Just got back from a lovely week staying at the mews. Diane and Tony are excellent hosts and were really keen to make sure that we had everything needed to make our stay comfortable. We were treated as being more like friends than paying guests. The mews is a really nice studio flat and very well appointed; the garden is... More

Oaklands is a fantastic B&B set in beautiful countryside with wonderful views of the sea. The rooms are spacious, tastefully furnished and immaculately clean. Lovely unexpected touches included fresh milk in the room, a turn-down service and extra toiletries, such as cotton buds, in the bathroom. Hosts Tony and Diane couldn't have been more welcoming. They are warm and friendly,... More

Oaklands B&B is set in large gardens front and rear about a mile outside Rye on the road to Battle. There are three immaculate bedrooms and a self catering apartment called "The Mews". Breakfasts are excellent - though perhaps a daily choice could be offered at this standard and price. Diane and Tony are excellent hosts whose only concern is... More
