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.

The breakfast was excellent, lots of choice and hot breakfast well cooked and tasty. Service was very friendly and efficient and did not have to wait long after ordering. the room was lovely and large and nicely decorated, with comfortable bed. The hotel is in a great central location on the high street so easy to visit other pubs and restaurants in the area.
