A nice hotel, small and old-fashioned.

Posted 17-Dec-2013
Pros: Atmosphere, staff, spa, location, breakfast.
Cons: Hang the bathroom door the other way. Fit a shower (or at least a new curtain). Warm the pool a bit!
Location: Rye is beautiful. Plenty of great places to eat and loads of antique shops to wander around. Good gents barbers for a shave and haircut in Rope Walk.
My wife and I stayed at the Rye Lodge for two nights as a birthday treat. It's a nice hotel, small and neat, with an old fashioned vibe (the unkind might say dated). The staff were lovely, and made us feel very welcome. There is no restaurant within the hotel, but the kitchen provides a good selection of room service meals should you want one. To be honest, Rye has so many quality places to eat out in the evening, you'd probably choose to eat elsewhere anyway. We ate at the Union Steakhouse (Excellent) and Webbe's (OK, bit over-hyped). Our room was comfortable and spacious (a deluxe double), but previous comments regarding bathroom size were accurate; that said, hanging the door so it opened out in to the spacious bedroom, rather than inwards into the cramped bathroom would help enormously. The rooms were obviously decorated to a high standard in the past, but ours was a little tired and would benefit from a bit of a spruce up. The bathroom was cramped and had a shower over the bath with a curtain; in this day and age, a walk-in shower would be much better, as well as more space-efficient. Whatever, doing away with the manky shower curtain and replacing it with a decent screen would be a start! The sauna was great, and we had the spa to ourselves for an hour. The pool and jacuzzi were both a little too cold, which was a shame (although invigorating to jump into straight from the sauna!). Overall 3 stars from me as, for the best part of £200 a night, I expect a good deal more.

Lovely old fashioned hotel

Posted 09-Oct-2013
This hotel takes you back to how hotels were years ago. Really friendly staff who know the area inside out and take the trouble to talk to guests and make you feel really welcome. Beautiful spacious room, lovely breakfast. Only downside was unbearable heat in our room (above the boiler) and antiquated plumbing (shower hot and cold).

comfortable and friendly

The room and hotel are well appointed. The only small criticism is that the room was very warm. Breakfast was excellent, with a very good quality cooked breakfast. The car park is a highly desirable feature in Rye.

overpriced

Posted 30-May-2013 on Hotels.com
I'ved stayed in many hotels at a similar price and have had a larger room and better bathroom. The parking situation was ridiculous. They have about 10 spaces at the back of the hotel for 50 rooms. They expect you will leave them your car keys so they can shuffle all the cars about. I would question their insurance cover. The bathroom was tiny and the shower really needs updating. However, the room was quiet and the hotel is in a prime location right at the top of the high street. I think a fair amount of the price for the room is the fact it is in Rye, not because of the hotel itself.

A conveniently located hotel in Rye

Posted 20-May-2013
Pros: Convenient
Location: A short walk from all the towns attractions
The hotel was very nice and conveniently located in the town so that guests can walk to all the towns attractions. The room was small but comfortable and well equipped and the staff were very helpful.The hotel has a large free parking area at the back which is a plus in a town that has few places to park.

Great place to visit

Posted 15-May-2013 on Hotels.com
Ideally situated just on the edge of Rye town with views over the marsh. We stayed for two days, never used the car as everything was just a walk away. Hotel breakfast was very good however did not have a restaurant but there are lots of eateries in the town.
