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!

Lovely place, staff great. Maybe needs a little TLC in places but lots of character adn enjoyed our stay We were the couple where my husband slipped on the swimming pool side, that shook him!

Had a lovely time at the rye lodge upgrade to the dulux room and it was amazing! The facilities were great (the pool and sauna). Breakfast was beautifuly set up and was really good too! Staff were really friendly and always happy to help and made us feel very welcome. Thank you for a lovely stay can't wait to return in the summer. Jasmine de baeza

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.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this delightful hotel ,ideal for exploring this medieval little town,which we had not visited before Our room ,one of the Deluxe ones ,was extremely comfortable ,and had every amenity,including dressing gowns and slippers These were ideal for our daily trips to the in house swimming pool and spa in the Venetion Leisure Centre ,which was a delightful bonus We were set up for the day with a delicious well cooked breakfast ,and efficiently served by a delightful young lady All the staff were extremely friendly and efficient ,and could not do enough to help,especially when we were all affected by a power cut on the 3rd day

The location and parking was good. The Room (19) was very good but needed more hanging space -- a second wardrobe on the window side adjacent to the bed head would suffice. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. I would recommend the Hotel and would be happy to stay there again. David Gray 2nd March 2016
