The George in Rye is "a haven on the south coast", according to Condé Nast Traveller and "in many ways the perfect hotel", says the Evening Standard. Dating back to 1575, this restored East Sussex coaching inn is now a boutique hotel that blends historic charm with contemporary comforts.

The property holds a host of awards, and is rated as one of the UK's top 10 most romantic hotels by the Sunday Times. It was also voted Best Luxury Staycation 2012 by the Daily Express and was runner-up for The Independent's Hotel of The Year, 2012.

The hotel has 34 individually designed rooms with bespoke furniture, DVD libraries and free Wi-Fi, plus bathrooms featuring marble-top baths, chrome power showers and REN products. Elle magazine says the property is "beautifully styled" and "definitely a hotel that knows how to make its guests happy and keep them coming back for more".

The seasonal menu in the AA-Rosette George Grill features locally sourced fare with a wood-charcoal grill at the heart of the kitchen to prepare seafood just caught from Rye Bay, local meats and vegetables.

The hotel is located in the centre of Rye, described by Lonely Planet as "one of England's most beautiful medieval villages", known for its art scene, antiques and local seafood. Take a pleasant stroll through the unhurried cobbled streets, admire the historic architecture and browse the many boutique shops. Other nearby attractions include Battle Abbey (the site of the Battle of Hastings), Camber Castle, Lamb House where writer Henry James often stayed, and Camber Sands.
