Why We Love This Deal

Rye in East Sussex is home to Georgian villas, half-timbered Tudor houses, and cobbled lanes such as Mermaid Street. One of the UK's most photographed streets, it's also where you'll find the Mermaid Inn. Our members are full of praise for the 600-year-old inn's "charming" decor, "lovely staff", and "excellent" food. Overnight stays this autumn and winter are £99, saving up to 47% on the usual prices.

More Reasons to Go

  • With its beamed ceilings, cosy fireplaces, wood panelling, and setting on "storybook lovely" (The Daily Telegraph) Mermaid Street, staying at The Mermaid Inn is like stepping back in time. Indeed, since it was first built in 1420, this famous former smugglers' inn has been visited by Elizabeth I and has hosted the Queen Mother.

  • There's a 2-AA-Rosette restaurant that serves "memorable dishes", according to The AA, as well as a bar and several lounges.
  • Camber Castle, a 16th-century fort built by Henry VIII, and Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, where you might spot tern and oystercatchers, are both five minutes' drive away.
  • Ypres Tower, which was built in the 13th century and has impressive views of the River Rother, is less than five minutes' walk from the hotel. It's one of the sites of the Rye Castle Museum—the other is a former bottle factory on East Street—and houses exhibits telling the town's story.
  • Camber Sands, a 3-mile-long sandy beach, is a 10-minute drive away. As well as being a great destination for a bracing walk, it's one of the UK's best spots for beachcombing (Daily Express) .
  • Stuck for Christmas gift ideas? Give a dining, spa, activity, theatre, or hotel experience, and create a memory.

Wonderful hotel! Didn't experience any ghostly activity - probably a good thing! The staff were all lovely and attentive without being obtrusive. Fabulous central position. Parked the car and walked for our entire stay. Food was absolutely delicious - some of the best I have eaten.

Wonderful historical building and great staff. The open fireplace was heavenly and the breakfast was pretty good too. Btw, The hand cut chips at lunchtime were perfect.

An attractive hotel & location. Unfortunately, the reception manager not very welcoming on arrival, she was notably brusk & acted like she was doing us a favour when I handed her my Travelzoo voucher!

A notably brusk check in from the reception manager & not very welcoming which made my wife uncomfortable & didn’t set a good tone. The TV in our room was tiny, old & fixed on the wall at an angle, not what you would expect in 2023 & unable to attach a a Firestick. Breakfast included a burnt pancake base & fried egg base which you wouldn’t expect in a quality hotel.

Only downside the hotel main restaurant menu didn't charge from one day to the next even the special advertised in the bar was the same the next night, so we ate down at the ship Inn at bottom of the road . But all good
