We stayed at The Mermaid for 2 nights in July of 13.
We can't seem to visit England without spending time in gorgeous Rye, and The Mermaid Inn.
As before, parking is easy--either by driving up Mermaid St and squeezing through a narrow archway to get behind the Mermaid Inn or by driving up a back street that takes you directly to their parking lot.
On this third visit, the owner--a beautiful, vivacious woman, gave us a personal tour of the property--which is full of history and incredible anecdotes. What a pleasure!
Read my previous reviews for details about The Mermaid--but realize that they are full of superlatives about the place. We simply love everything about it and Rye, and will never be able to visit England without stopping in this magical town--usually towards the end of a long driving journey before heading back to London and then home in the US.
Thanks for always making us feel pampered, special, and happy!
