As a group of 4 friends we chose this hotel as it fitted in our budget. Theres plenty of parking outside and the hotel is easy to find. It's set on the side of the river a short walk from the town. The hotel is comfortable and clean. Might need a bit of updating but everything works just fine. I...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Comfortable and clean. Great location with easy walking into Rye and local restaurants etc. Breakfast was fantastic. Staff friendly and happy to help. It's very quiet and I would say most suited to couples/ older families. The river is right next to the hotel/grounds. Would definitely stay here again.

A few minutes walk to the centre of Rye, therefore a good location for us. A small party of 5 family members had a 3 night stay from 14th February in ground floor rooms which were very clean and the staff very friendly and attentive. The buffet breakfast was very good, plentiful and varied. There was also a good selection...

My partner and I go to this hotel on a regular basis. We usually pop over for a couple of nights. Its always very clean and very well presented. Ann on reception always takes good care of us, and makes sure that our stay is very comfortable. Breakfast is always very good with lots on offer.

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,...
