Historic building in the centre of Rye. Luckily got a space in the car park. Good COVID safety measures in hotel and restaurant. Enjoyed the set a la carte meal and breakfast. Would stay here again.

Lovely short break away, however the parking on-site is very hit and miss and even once you have booked in you cannot book parking for future nights
