My partner and I thought we would go on a miniature break and our family recommend rye, we went on trip advisor and saw this place, when we arrived we walked into reception and was immediately greeted by staff who seemed really friendly, we went up to our room and it was a surprise! The bathroom was newly refitted to... More

Perhaps we were expecting too much after reading previous reviews. We stayed with friends who admittedly had a better room than ours, but our room was dark, with a small dormer window, and the walls were paper thin (we could hear the child in the next room with no problem, and were woken early by her). There were steps down... More

All the staff were brilliant and could not of been more helpful. Toby the Manager was more than helpful and ensured we had a wonderful day. A lot of the guests were booked in... More

Stayed here a few times. A pleasant place, really pleasant staff, nice rooms, clearly popular as a carvery at the weekends. The beds in the rooms I've used are not the most comfortable, but other than that a very agreeable place to stop over. Winchelsea is quaint, historic and lovely. The lodge is not a large hotel chain so don't... More

My wife and I stayed here on the night of our wedding before going away on honeymoon. Our room was spacious, it had a lovely view over the fields with rabbits running around. The staff are friendly and the food is awesome! We've been back here on Birthdays and Anniversaries. Highly recommend for a relaxing, getaway from it all time!

We chose this hotel as a base for visiting Rye, having been put off by Rye B&B rates! The staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, plentiful and very good value. I would love to give 4-5 stars but unfortunately we did not get the most basic requirement - a good night's sleep - until our third... More

My husband and I were en route to Hastings; hungry and thirsty! We popped into The Lodge - what a great decision! Hubby had ham, egg and chips and said it was the best ever. The ham was beautiful - thick and lean and so much of it. I had a cheese and pickle baguette - yummy. We then sat... More
