We used The Lodge as a centre to tour the area for four days as there are many National Trust and Heritage sites nearby, with easy access to coastal sites. The rooms were basic but good and very comfortable. The catering was excellent with a good and varied menu. The cooked breakfast even had me not wanting anything more until... More

Travelled to the area for the first time and we had booked an apartment nearby which was so filthy we couldn't stay. Then we asked a local who directed us to The Lodge. I wish I could find that mn again to buy him a drink. The Lodge has friendly staff lovely rooms, ours overlooked a field teeming with rabbits... More

Whilst in Rye for the weekend we enjoyed a very generous, very good quality breakfast at The Lodge. When we arrived the restaurant was very busy and had a good atmosphere. We received a very warm welcome followed by great service. Would definitely return.

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

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!
