Stayed in the motel units at the back. These are fine - quiet location - clean and presentable and represented good value for money. We were meeting family for dinner in the restaurant here so the location made good sense. Happy with choice.

We stayed here during September in the relatively modern motel style rooms at the rear. Quiet, clean and comfy. Interesting décor although the whole deal and experience was good. Would be happy to use again when next in Rye.

Really lovely accommodation for a daily or 2 couples. The accommodation is beautifully decorated and has very comfortable beds!! Great choice of breakfast in the morning, the pub serves fresh food. Short walk from the town of Rye. Very helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. Thanks:)

We stayed in the White room in the main building. As the building is a few hundred years old you expect the odd creak and slightly sloping floor. There was no wardrobe in the room as there is no room for one, although plenty of drawer was there. That sounds as though the room was small, it wasn't. Cleanliness was... More

We stayed in the 'Champagne' room for four nights while working in the area. A lovely big room, with two windows, a very comfortable super-king (zip link) bed, massive ensuite with a huge shower, great wifi service, on site parking and plug points for business traveller. The staff are the jewel in the crown here: Jess, Kim, Dotty and Aaron... More

Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Very clean, large & dog friendly room (Champagne) although some road traffic noise had a very comfortable stay. There are chalets too situated at the back around a large car park which would suit dog owners better. Food was excellent, although the wine list is a tad on the expensive side. Situated at the top... More

This is a great BnB, large rooms, very clean, nice bathroom. The pub is also nice, great food and friendly staff. Would highly recommend if you are staying in Rye for a couple of nights. On site parking is great and handy for unloading the car

Stumbled upon the Kings Head near the end of a long day. The host and staff were friendly and efficient. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated, so, with great food downstairs, we couldn't ask for more. We were three seniors travelling with our car so the good parking was a bonus. We would recommend this Inn.

Stayed at The Kings Head over the weekend as we were visiting to celebrate a friends birthday. Straight away when arriving the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room was lovely .

Very friendly welcome upon arrival and checked straight in to room despite being very early. We had a cottage room detached from pub which we found to be nicely coordinated, light, airy and with all facilities expected. The large bed was exceptionally comfortable and there was no surrounding noise even with windows open. The breakfast was excellent with a large... More
