Room nice, clean and only a short walk from town. Bed comfy. Quiet location with good views up to Rye town. Good parking. Welcome could have been friendlier, 1am curfew not great and bacon was lovely quality but cooked badly the rest of breakfast was good except no smoked salmon option on the second day.

When we arrived we honestly thought we were in the wrong place and had walked into an old people's home ! This is seriously not a place for romantic couples, unless nylon, pastels and chintz is your thing. Having said that, it's excellent value for money. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean, the staff are pleasant, the parking's...

We visited the weekend of the bonfire celebration in Rye. Three friends in a family room. The room was lovely, clean, bright and we'll equipped. Staff were fantastic , breakfast on Sunday was one of the best I've had. All in all excellent value for money.

I was given a "Two Night Break" voucher as a present and from a list of hotels and b&b's up and down the country chose the River Haven Hotel in Rye. One reason was we hadn't stayed in Rye before and another was friends were coming to the UK from Germany and staying in Maidenhead for a couple of days,...

Visited Rye to play in a golf match over two days at the famous Rye Golf Club. Stayed overnight in the River Haven. At this time of year (early November) a double room costs £70 to £90. The hotel is within easy walking distance (7 minutes) to Rye town centre. The room was clean, basic and included on suite bathroom,...

Staff were top notch, really helpful and friendly. Food was excellent. Good range of food at breakfast. Our room was clean but dated. Crack in bath panel, smell of damp in the bathroom and pathetic shower were the only down-points. Biggest downer was that they want to charge us £5 to return a cable we left in the room by...

This Hotel has a wonderful setting beside the river in Rye. It's a clean comfortable place to stay and have a relaxing drink and meal. The resturant is run very well by the head chef who's food is always second to none. The staff are all pleasent and nothing is too much trouble.
