Hadn't visited the place since it was a pub many, many years ago and was really impressed with every aspect of The Lodge. Very friendly welcome and an excellent choice of both dishes and menus. The food was faultless and couldn't believe the prices! Two really delicious lasagnes with garlic bread and salad, one Eton Mess and a delicious Bakewell... More

Went for Easter Sunday lunch. Because they were busy and there were 13 of us including 6 children they put us in the function room downstairs. Staff were v attentive and helpful even though they were busy and we were out of sight. The Carvery was faultless, well cooked, quality meats and a good choice of vegetables. Will definitely visit...

well situated just off the road in a pretty village between Hastings and Folkstone. the restaurant offers a good choice. The rooms are a bit dated (no electric shaver point in the bathroom) but very clean. Very friendly staff and good value for money!

Nice place to stay, nice bar, very nice restaurant, and great staff. We stayed for 2 nights, we were able to park in a car port under our room which was very handy on a wet and windy weekend. Excellent location for the 5min drive into Rye for window shopping. Breakfast was continental but if you want cooked they can... More

I have stayed at the lodge many times. Alone, with friends & family. Its a great base for many reasons. Its just outside historic Winchelsea town which is on top of a hill, below is Winchelsea beach & beyond Rye. The great upside is you can stay at the Lodge, park comfortably. Rest & relax in this quiet spot. Get... More

Whilst we were not guests at the motel itself, the exterior facade and the surrounding grounds had roadside appeal. Our first visit was to the restaurant on Mother's Day. We were very impressed with the food and service. Looking forward to our next visit!

More economical than staying in Rye. Rooms are behind restaurant/ bar so slightly set back from the road. No traffic noise at night. Very comfortable stay. Would have been better if cooked breakfast was inclusive in price rather than extra but plenty of cereal, toast, croissant etc. Well recommended.

Visited the lodge for one night. Nice, clean rooms. Ate and drank in the restaurant, food was ok, fairly quiet pub. Nice location but maybe a little in the middle of no-where, need to drive even to the next pub. Overall a nice place and would stay here again .

Booked a weekend away here and so glad I did! Initially there was a little problem with the heating in the room, but once we spoke to hotel staff about it they could not have done more to accommodate us and make sure our stay was pleasant and comfortable. Would definitely return.
