“Rye Lodge Hotel”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Where to begin? The reception from this hotel was second to none. We were immediately given an upgrade to the loveliest, quirkiest and most beautiful room. Everything about it was perfect. Spotlessly clean and immediately wanted to stay longer. Rye itself is a fantastic place to visit and I would recommend The Rye Lodge Hotel as a great base. Everything is to hand and easily accessible from RLH. Really enjoyed the banter with the member of staff who served the afternoon tea he was genuinely funny and welcoming. The pool and sauna were a great place to relax after a sightseeing afternoon around the town before a siesta and an evening meal. The breakfast hit the spot and set us up for the day. Would definitely go back again and hope we got the same room.

Room Tip: Loved room 18

I had to participate to a seminar in Rye, UK, and I have been recommended to stay at this hotel. I was skeptical in the beginning, but after my arrival I understood why my colleagues recommended me this place: it looks very nice, it is clean and the rooms have a very attractive design. The hosts are friendly and they really know to treat their customers. The surroundings are very quiet, making this place the perfect location for resting and enjoying small walks.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet and nice.

I stayed at the Rye Lodge a couple of times and always confortably and nicely taken care of. Rooms are spacious and well kept, beds are confortable and room amenities are fine. The Hotel is just inside tha Landgate , with views on the marshes and river Rother, so with all access to shops and dining places in town. Catering at the lodge is very good and breakfast is very nice.

I recently had to fly to UK for a business meeting and my client suggested Rye as it was a nice & quiet place. Boy he wasn't wrong for a bit. Though small it has a strong personality due to the lovely surroundings and friendly people.

We stayed at the Rye Lodge Hotel where we could carry on with our meetings. It was so relaxing and we were so focused on our campaign that we didn't realize how efficient we were. The staff was wonderful and cared for our every will.

A great place to disconnect from the crowded cities, clear your mind and focus on your work. I will surely come back with my husband as well to enjoy this peaceful place.

My Wife and I have just returned from a relaxing few days at the Rye Lodge Hotel, it is the fourth time that we have stayed there, and we found ourselves in room 16 which with windows on three sides gives one the most amazing views, surely the most spectacular in Rye.

The quality and service that the staff give can only be described as first class, and one is greeted like an old friend. Needless to say we will be returning.

Room Tip: Each time we have visited we have enjoyed different rooms, they have all been first class, but room...

I booked this hotel via Groupon for my husband's birthday. I paid an extra £20 for an upgrade. The room was spotlessly clean and it was the warmest hotel room we have ever stayed in. Staff were extremely friendly, and upon hearing it was my husband's birthday they even found a birthday candle to put on his afternoon tea scone! The staff switched on the sauna when we said that we were hoping to use it. The sauna was small and cosy as was the pool. Unfortunately the jacuzzi/hot tub was not as hot as we had hoped, nevertheless it was an enjoyable and relaxing experience. On the day we stayed at Rye Lodge Hotel the weather was appalling. The hotel staff had very thoughtfully supplied umbrellas for our use - this was very much appreciated. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty.

Im so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and that the staff made a fuss of your husband on his birthday. Im sorry to hear about the weather but at least you had the pool to relax in. The whirlpool is actually the same temperature as the pool as the water flows into the pool from the whirlpool. Unfortunately this is a bit of a design fault and it would have been much nicer to have this as a hot tub that was separate from the pool. Anyway, at least the sauna was there to warm you up from the English weather! I do hope you will come and see us again soon.

Had a lovely stay there for a birthday weekend. Overall the product is due for investment however, this is made up for by the excellent staff. I never write reviews but wanted to do so on this occasion, we had some drinks in the bar and was served by Michael. He was charming, engaging and interesting to talk to. People like him is what makes small hotels special and unique, don't ever lost that! The next morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find a birthday card under the door from the hotel team, a nice small touch.
