Overview

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.

We’ve visited many times for lunches so thought it would be great to stay after an evening dinner so took up this offer. We arranged a visit with another couple, both celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Our room was not like the photo at all, it was very dated and in need of some maintenance. The welcome was ok. The tall blonde lady was warm and friendly , the other lady not so. Later whilst having to leave the restaurant to take a personal family call , I asked the dark haired receptionist if she would mind organising a drink as the cal was to be approx 30mins - she told me it was not her job and tutted. I replied do not trouble yourself and she didnt! We should have received a glass of Prosecco on arrival - neither couple did. All very disappointing frankly.
