Beautiful Hotel, our room was stunning, huge comfy bed, lovely breakfast with the staff not being able to do enough for us, the swimming pool and sauna were fabulous all in al we had a wonderful stay and look forward to returning

Our room was lovely and very well kept. Breakfast was plentiful and freshly cooked compliments to the chef. Location was great. In our opinion we thought that the lounge/bar area could do with some music as we feel this would have created a nice atmosphere and then more people would be inclined to use it. Excellent stay thank you

Very pleasant stay overall thank you, with extremely friendly staff. Nice quiet room. (16) Breakfast was a little late for us as it only opened at 8.00 but I suspect we are probably in a minority. We'd have preferred a 7.30 start. We were glad not to have had to wait until 8.30 on a Sunday!

A lovely picturesque location, nicely presented elegant room coupled with extremely friendly staff make this hotel well worth a visit. Room was clean, warm and airy, bed was really comfortable which sounds silly but I've stayed at a lot of hotels where the beds have been awful and getting a good nights sleep therefore impossible! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, we booked some time ago and had said we'd take a travel cot for our young son, which we completely forgot about. The duty staff duly located a cot and even came to set it up for us. Breakfast was excellent, great food and served hot straight from the kitchen to order, again by lovely friendly staff. The only minor negatives - the bathroom was a little on the small side in our room, as is the pool, which was also a little on the chilly side. However I wouldn't let that detract from the overall experience of our stay which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Our ground floor room was very warm and comfortable with lots of added extras. Unfortunately whilst asleep on our first night the french windows in our room came open,which we didn't realise until first thing in the morning. As a result the temperature in the room had dropped significantly. I can only assume that these doors weren't locked.

We had a lovely 2 night stay, fab breakfast, plus we brought our dog along and we're all very happy with the welcome we received and the facilities. We enjoyed the pool and sauna as well 🙂

We really liked our brief stay here. We had a quiet room at the back of the building overlooking the car park. Yes it was a simple, unpretentious room, yes the en-suite shower was 'compact' but everything worked as it should and importantly, the bed was comfortable. It was NOT the hotel's fault, but on our arrival we were told that as there was a power-cut in progress, due to a fault in supply from the energy provider, the hotel indoor pool was, unfortunately, closed. No worry for us however as we weren't planning a swim, hot-tub or sauna. We checked it out the next morning, deciding that if we ever returned we'd bring the 'cossies' and utilise it all - It looked a fun thing to do. Half the town was in darkness when we went out to find some dinner in the town...an eery, slightly sad, dingy experience. But, power did resume later and in the next day's light Rye revealed its full, historic charm. The hotel staff were all delightful and helpful and of course very apologetic for the power cut, albeit it being beyond their control. The breakfast was refreshing - all the produce, fish, eggs sausages etc, sourced locally. My scrambled eggs - cooked just as requested - tasted delicious. As I say, we really enjoyed our brief stay here. Thank you Rye Lodge.

Friendly staff and great location...we stayed in one of the courtyard rooms which was lovely and close to the indoor pool/spa...breakfast was great and a good choice of foods...would stay here again on our next visit to Rye and recommend to friends.
