Very cute hotel in perfect location next to main attractions, shops and restaurants. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Very comfortable beds !!!!!!! Breakfast was delicious and they are organised with the social distancing rules. They were very kind to keep our luggage’s until late after checking out. Only extras I would ask for is a little mini fridge and air condition. But honestly this hotel is superb and I would recommend it to everyone who wants to stay in Rye.
