We came to Rye after a disastrous experience in a hotel in Folkestone. The staff member who greeted us was helpful and more than willing to let us view the available rooms before deciding to stay. The room we chose was a garden room and had everything we needed. It was clean, spacious and suited us fine. The bed was... More

Spent two night here in early july. Chose really because of the parking facilitys. Check in very fast and room was facing the river. Had a drink from the bar (served by receptionist) and sat on river bank, very peaceful. Decided to eat in the restuarant in the evening as the choice was good. The staff were very friendly but...

We stayed for one night, there were 3 of us in one room. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was not very comfortable so we did not sleep very well. There was a wedding going on at the hotel which went on past midnight so it was quite noises outside our room. Breakfast the next day was okay... More

I'd probably feel better if they'd mentioned they had a wedding on. One of the attractions was the attached car park; relatively rare in Rye. However no chance when we arrived, all spots taken up by wedding guests. So we had to park in the pay and display a couple of hundred metres down the road. No offer made to... More

Recently had a change of management and the restaurant has improved immensely. They now appear to have a chef who can cook! Rooms are basic but have all you need. I've been here for a night or two every week for the last 3 years and it still offers some of the best vfm accommodation in Rye.

Reading the other reviews I've got to agree that yes, it's a bit dated and yes, the rooms are sometimes a bit dark but to me and my kids we love it here. Very friendly staff, lovely breakfasts and you can beat having a cool drink sitting in the side of the river after a full on day at the... More

Our room and the Hotel in general is very dated and tired. Our room was very warm so we had to sleep with the window open but as its on a main road we were disturbed by traffic. I asked for a coffee from the bat at about 10pm on Friday to be told the machine was turned off so... More

Location was great. Room was very dated and quite dark. We were okay as did not spend much time in room and weather was lovely and sunny so we had a nice couple of days. Had a look at other rooms and the superior ones were larger, brighter and felt happier. Worth spending the extra for a superior room overlooking... More

The River Haven hotel is a 22 bed privately owned hotel about 5 minutes walk into the centre of Rye. As its name suggests it is on the banks of a river. There is plenty of parking for your car[ very handy for Rye] and the staff were friendly helpful and attentive. Previous reviewers have mentioned the slightly old fashioned... More
