Spacious room ( in the courtyard) with great walk-in shower. Very comfortable with everything you need for a great stay. Bed was large and so comfortable. You then stroll across to the Kings Head itself where the food and service is great. Also so good on holidays like this to be able to order more simple food such as cottage... More

Having arrived to be great by a well turned out man who was polite and a cheeky Chappy he lead us to our accommodation upstairs, even carrying our heavy bags. We had a few questions about our first stay in rye. He said he had lived in the area a long time and gave us an insight in to life... More

The rooms were separate from the Hotel, modern, fresh and had everything we needed and more. Staff were very helpful and assisted us with a problem we had. We also had dinner there which was very good. Breakfast was also very good in choice and quality. Highly recommended.

Visiting the area on a business trip, great accommodation clean comfortable and just that little bit different. Did not plan to eat in every night but after one quick view of the menu I was settled. Hard to choose my favourites as I could have eaten everything. All washed down with a couple of beers from the bar. Staff could... More

We went here really because of the excellent reviews posted here on TA. It was by no means disastrous but not outstanding either and somewhat overpriced for the quality. The chicken tikka masala was very runny and the halloumi burgers were tasty but featured cheap shop bought coleslaw when I had expected homemade for the price of £11 for a... More

This is a very nice place to stay. The room was compact but light and welcoming. A friendlier team of staff would be hard to find. Immediately welcoming and very helpful. I saw that the bar and restaurant was full and although I only had breakfast, next time I would like to try the menu. Will return . Rye is... More

You know when you just need to get away???? Well, this is the place go. Spotlessly clean, bright & airy. I am a real fuss pot but it met every expectation. Visited the bar in the evening where the decor and atmosphere was lovely. Breakfast catered well for me being a vegetarian.

We found this place online. Stayed in the Champagne suite as it looked beautiful and we were not disappointed so clean and tastefully decorated to such a high standard. Lisa and Steve were lovely hosts the food was excellent! I would not hesitate in recommending The Kings Head to anyone. All the staff were very friendly and I would not... More
