Great little Guest house in perfect location for everything in Rye. Lovely room with everything you could want. Breakfast was the best / fresh and local produce too. Friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us.

Situated in a wonderful position in this amazing old town, the Borough is a gem. We had excellent service throughout. Our room was quite small and being positioned on the lower floor so had no real outlook, but it was comfortable for 2 nights. Breakfasts were really nice and we made the most of the large balcony on the 2nd... More

We had a superb 2 night stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary- it couldn't have been better. The room was lovely, the staff were friendly and the breakfasts were good, too. Although they only do B&B, their suggestions for dinner was also spot on.

We stayed in the family suite above the dining area. It was clean enough and suitable for a young family. Breakfast is not included with the suite, but the proprietor was very accommodating and offered to include it. Two small children aren't going to eat that much anyway! Their homemade croissants and pain au chocolat were to die for. Everyone... More

In July my husband and I had a short break in Rye and stayed at The Old Borough Arms on the recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed. This small hotel is situated perfectly within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Our room was clean, very well appointed and extremely comfortable and all staff we met were friendly and...

I visited with my 2 daughters. We had a very comfortable family room. We were made to feel very welcome and found the service throughout our stay was excellent. Breakfast was delicious, with a wide choice. I'd definitely recommend!

I tend to overlook reviewing places that I stay in due to sheer lack of time. But I felt compelled to let people know how nice the Old Borough Arms is. We stayed at this lovely quaint hotel for a long weekend. The staff were very friendly and really made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The weather... More

I stayed here for one night while passing through the UK. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The place was easy to find and had some parking out front. For the rest it was quite dated, various items needed maintenance (toilet button falling out, windows had some issues) and cleaning (stains on duvet and fungus in the bathroom) and... More
