More Reasons to Go

  • This famous former smuggler's inn dates back to 1420; it was reputedly visited by Elizabeth I and has hosted the Queen Mother.
  • Our members love this property, praising the "fabulous" location, "lovely" staff, and "absolutely delicious" food.
  • There's a 2-AA-Rosette restaurant that serves "memorable dishes", according to The AA, as well as a bar and several lounges.
  • Camber Sands, a 3-mile-long sandy beach, is a 10-minute drive away. It's one of the UK's best spots for beachcombing (Daily Express) and is a popular location for kitesurfing, too.
  • 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.
