I stayed here recently with my sister, and it really is a great location from which to explore Rye as it's an easy 10-minute walk into the old town. Having on-site parking is a big plus - we were there in winter, but in summer this would be even more helpful. My room was very clean, very comfortable and wonderfully warm! Lovely view across the river, looking up to Rye. Overall, a great hotel which I believe is family-owned and run, and this shows in the friendliness of staff. We didn't have dinner in the restaurant, however the breakfast each day was excellent.
