We visited Rye on the way to Kent. The George is great because it's located right in the best part of Rye - a beautiful vintage town up on a hill with plenty of cobbled streets. It's a cosy B&B that is refurbished to have a lux vintage feel. There's a great restaurant on the ground level that is fairly popular with locals and guests alike (though I was sorely disappointed when they ran out of Fish & Chips) and it's also a lovely place for the breakfast buffet - great croissants and coffees (ask for a latte).
The room itself was very small but fairly well insulated in terms of noise. They do their best to make it feel homely and the bed was really comfortable and I loved the fact that they had a hot water bottle for use on the bed. Shower products were Ren branded travel bottles which were great and sink space was adequate. There was also a full-length mirror on the door of the toilet which was handy. You can also find the kettle, coffee and tea (tea pigs! great!) in a box in the cupboard.
Downsides were that the TV was pretty tiny, and the toilet did not feel as luxe as it could be. There was no shower arm, and the shower head, though adequate was not exactly a power shower. The bathtub splash door was too short and hence not exactly splash proof. The layout didn't exactly make it easy to access the towels either. Also no bedroom slippers provided though maybe that's the case for most B&Bs.
Overall I'm glad we stayed at The George and the town around it was worth exploring - so beautiful on a sunny day! Despite the cons I'd recommend this place which is probably one of the best already in the area.
