Dating back to 1575, this restored East Sussex coaching inn is now a boutique hotel that blends historic charm with contemporary comforts.

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. 

The seasonal menu in the 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 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 (built on the site of the Battle of Hastings), Camber Castle, Lamb House where writer Henry James often stayed, and Camber Sands.

Light sleepers may find they are awoken very early by deliveries and on a Wednesday the dust catts and on Thursday the road sweepers. Best to avoid a road facing room.

More care taken over breakfast buffet table being topped up eg milk fruit salad etc. to avoid queuing. This is a small issue

Very hot dining room. We had to abandon dinner as the room was stifling and the staff did not turn on fans or open windows to help. They just said that it is always the same so do not recommend booking dinner there.
