The Hope Anchor Hotel is a family-run inn in East Sussex in the town of Rye, a place of "fine Georgian and medieval houses, cobbled streets and views of Romney Marsh", says The Guardian. The property is at the top of a hill overlooking the harbour, a few minutes' walk into the main town. It's the number one hotel in Rye on TripAdvisor and 100% of Travelzoo members who previously stayed here and reviewed their stay said they loved it.
Steeped in history, the inn was built around 1750, and was a watering hole for local sailors and shipbuilders. Legend has it the hotel's secret passages were once used by the Tenterden Gang for smuggling goods.
With only 13 rooms, The Hope Anchor Hotel is one of the smallest hotels in the town. Each room has its own design and the Junior Suite has a telescope so you can zoom in on the surroundings.
Breakfast and dinner are served in the restaurant which offers dishes using locally sourced produce such as fish from Rye Bay and meat from Romney Marsh. There's also a bar serving daily snacks and sandwiches.
In Rye you'll see quaint cobbled streets, narrow passageways and crooked Tudor buildings. Don’t miss Mermaid Street, which is named one of the prettiest streets in Britain by The Daily Telegraph. Climb the tower of St Marys Church for views of Rye and see the turret clock which is the oldest in England. Lamb House is another highlight, this National Trust Georgian property was home to American writer Henry James.
Three miles outside of Rye is Camber Sands, a popular beach for Kite surfers and parts of the beach were used for scenes in the 2015 film 'The Theory of Everything'. Alternatively, 30-minutes to the west of Rye is 1066 Battle of Hastings, Abbey and Battlefield where you can see the spot King Harold is said to have been killed.
