Reviewed 21 March 2012

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful short break at Saltcote Place. Paul and Alan greeted us like long lost friends and provided a degree of attentive service and assistance unrivalled in our very long experience. The house is amazing with wonderful views, and Rye is only a short walk away. The bed was amazingly comfortable and I cannot recall such sumptuous breakfasts, even at the Marbella Club where you pay a fortune for the priviledge! Nothing was too much trouble - I arrived completely stressed out, and departed feeling relaxed and uplifted. Certainly hope to return! (nb: Would definately recommend the "Ambrette" restaurant in Rye).

Room Tip: All rooms are great (we had a conducted tour!).

Beyond .... comparison!

You have to experience this! Paul and Alan make the term "customer service" sound not only cold but ridiculous. Think about this .... if you went to visit your long lost brothers and they treated you like only special family could, then you wouldn't describe how they acted as "great customer service". You'd tell just how warm they were and what a wonderful experience they made it for you.

Well, on a 1-5 scale for Warmth and Wonderful Experience Paul and Alan get a 6 !!!

Want to give someone you love a great experience ... try this !

We shall return !

My wife and I spent a weekend at Salcote Place. From the moment you enter to the moment you leave, you are full of joy and admiration for this place. Alan and Paul are wonderful hosts. They have such a great sense of humour (Alan your anecdotes were fascinating and extremely amusing).

The place is a wonderful old mansion with period furniture kept in an immaculate way. Attention to detail is remarkable. The whole place has been done up with passion and love. The kitchen is a labour of love and is a must see.

We will come back. A great place to relax and within 10 mins walk to the centre of Rye. Oh, while you are there do try the Tuscan Kitchen.

My husband booked a one night stay at the Saltcote as a surprise for my 50th Birthday. Well he really excelled in his choice of B&B! The attention to detail, comfort, hospitality and warm welcome was excellent. The hosts Alan and Paul really know how to give a friendly pampered experience. There was a complimentary bottle of champagne and a 50th birthday card waiting in the room. My husband had e mailed ahead to say that I really dislike lilies so they accommodated by placing 12 red roses in the room. The little touches made it so special such as the Belgian chocolates, fresh fruit, nightcap (baileys and port). The toiletries were Floris and included everything you could possibly need. The towels were fluffy and soft, the bed linen was crisp and pristine, the glasses were crystal and every inch of the room was spotless! There was also free fast internet.

Breakfast was probably the best we have eaten in any B&B or hotel. Alan and Paul were so attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was a three course affair, eaten in the most wonderful bespoke kitchen, The fresh fruit was presented as a work of art with creamy Greek yoghurt, then on to a full English with delicious quality bacon, ale and pork sausage (my husband had ostrich sausage), delicately flavoured sauté potatoes, tomato, beans, seeded toast etc. There was a wonderful selection of jams/preserves and to finish, lovely warm fresh croissants and Danish pastries, Choice of teas and coffee and fresh fruit juice............I could go on and on about the food! Thank you Alan for setting us up for the day!

The house is so beautiful, packed with tasteful and quirky antiques, it was like visiting a National Trust property, and it is obviously a labour of love for Paul and Alan. We ate at a local restaurant which was recommended by our hosts which was exquisite.......all in all a fantastic 50th, we will definitely be back. If you are looking for quality, warmth and an exceptional experience then don’t hesitate to book.......you won’t regret it!

Perfect! We had the most lovely time.
From arrival up the tree lined avenue, being greeted by Paul and sitting for a cup of tea, it was fantastic.
Paul and Alan are such great hosts and the House is just impeccable and beautiful. We felt special from the moment we arrived. They made us feel so comfortable and went out of their way to help us with places to go/see and great restaurants to eat at.
Their breakfasts are just delicious and every little thing was thought of. They also added lots of lovely little extras, which really made our stay.
The room was lovely and so comfortable, with a look and furnishings which matched the rest of the house and was so tastefully decorated, with some great modern comforts.
Paul and Alan are a joy to be around and always left us with a smile on our faces and their dog Java is such a softy.
The history of the house, we found highly interesting and made us feel very privileged to be staying there. They have very sensitively and beautifully restored this house to not only a wonderful Bed & Breakfast, but a lovely home.
We definitely, without hesitation recommend this to everybody.
We cannot wait to come back.
Lots of love,
Amy & Luke Gilbert-Bray ;)

Room Tip: To be honest, all of their rooms are wonderful.

Treated like welcome house guest and not like paying visitors. Incredibly discreet and a great place to stay. Every encounter with Paul and Alan leaves a big smile on your face and a warm feeling inside.
If ever a place deserves 11 out of 10 this one would be a 12.
We will be back (so she has just told me).
If they recommend a restaurant you are certain you won't be disappointed.
