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

My wife and I checked in on the monday and were met by a very friendly receptionist, we were checked in very fast. The restaurant was exceptional, with a partial menu change each evening, in all the food was superb from a talented chef, who went above and beyond, even sourcing an item my wife dearly wanted to eat. Breakfast... More

We stayed overnight in Rye at the River Haven Hotel. A few minutes walk from the town centre, it was comfortable and friendly but the decoration was a little 'tired'. Breakfast was well cooked and a good sized portion. We would stay here again.

Been to the Hotel a few times, not stayed before. The rooms are clean and the bed was so comfy. The room had everything you need and couldn't hear anyone else from any other room. Only thing was toilet seat was broken, needs sorting. Would stay again no problem.

Located across the river from the town centre with good parking. Basic but comfortable with a good breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. Short walk to the delightful medieval town and its many attractions.

The hotel is 'middle of the road' in standard, excellent dinner and breakfast but our 'superior ' rooms were distinctly ordinary, if clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful across the board. One thing that detracts is the quayside on which the hotel is located. Scruffy and unkempt and seemingly the river is always muddy. Rye is a great...

This hotel was ideally situated for us being a short walk across the river from rye town. It was a bonus to be able to park there. I agree with some of the earlier comments that the hotel decor was a bit dated and tired, and they do need a new hallway carpet. However the room we stayed in was... More
