“Characterful property in a great location”
Reviewed 23 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a lovely weekend in Rye staying at 15 Wishes. The apartment has lots of character and is a great location, right in the old town.

The apartment is quiet, comfortable and well equipped.

There is no doubt this is a good place to stay but to be honest I felt it was little expensive for the time of year that I booked and I felt that it could use a make-over as its looking a little tired in places, hence my 3 star rating.

I would still recommend 15 Wishes but I didn't get that 5 star 'wow' factor that many of the earlier reviews suggest.

“Fantastic place in a beautiful village”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This is one of the best places I've ever stayed in. My wife was ready to move in permanently after about 2 hours. She kept saying how 'tastefully' Janine had put everything together, right down to the crockery. Personally, I was a big fan of the digital radio in the kitchen. I won't go on too much, it's all been said, but one thing to note: the sofa bed is very comfortable, which is unusual and a very pleasant surprise. Anyway, why are you still reading? book this place before it's too late.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review, we are thrilled that you had a great time in Rye and in 15wishes. We have found the sofa bed comfortable too, we searched a long time to find the right one that was comfortable and that we could get up the stairs! With our best wishes Janine and Kim

“A perfect base for exploration of the charming town”

person found this review helpful

We had an absolutely wonderful time at 15 Wishes!

The apartment was so lovely and comfortable we had a hard time leaving - we couldn't imagine a more perfect and charming base for exploration of the enchanting town.

All the small touches in décor were appreciated as was the excellent equipping of the kitchen and lounge, not to mention the Molton Brown range in the bathroom.

“Quirky attic flat in heart of historic Rye”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We had a lovely stay at 15 Wishes. It is very well positioned right in the centre of Rye. The only downside to that is that its quite noisy at night as there are two pubs in very close proximity. The flat has a quirky unique feel about it with uneven floors & sloping ceilings which add to its charm. It was impeccably clean & very well stocked with games, dvds, kitchen equipment etc.
The owners had warned us that there are 3 steep & narrow staircases to climb to enter the flat which wouldn't be suitable for all.
All in all very nice flat that I'd recommend.

“The best place to stay in rye”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

What a fantastic apartment !right in the hub of rye within easy walking distance of anything in the town.
the apartment itself is perfectly decorated in a modern clean style yet still retains the old world character.we felt part of the town watching the world go by.we only stayed for three days but would have liked to stay longer.(like forever) there's everything you could want in the apartment and the welcome pack of essentials was a lovely touch.be aware the stairs up to the apartment are quite steep.(you get used to them)a lovely place
We're so glad we found it. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

“A lovely stay”
Reviewed 7 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We wanted a last minute getaway for a couple of days as we live in busy London. The drive down is perfect not too long, we were there within 1hr45 and as we walked in, we literally started to relax! With its cute quirky style and a bottle of wine awaiting it was like home from home. The village itself is very quaint and has lots of lovely antique shops to browse around and several decent eateries for breakfast lunch and dinner. We will definitely be re-booking in the summer to make more of the surrounding area which on this occasion we were unable to enjoy due to the cold weather, although I wasn't complaining from my comfy armchair infront of the fire in the George inn sipping a glass of wine.....cosy.com!

“15 Wishes -- A Happy Choice”
Reviewed 3 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Snug, clean, and well-apportioned, 15 Wishes made our two week stay in the town of Rye a delight. The flat has the charm of yesteryear -- low beams and steep steps -- and the convenience of today. (Our 12 year old daughter was most grateful for 15 Wishes' Internet access.) Well-situated, 15 Wishes is only a stone's throw from everything in old Rye, including shops, cash machines, and resturants & pubs. We took quite a few day trips from Rye and appreciated that 15 Wishes was only a 5-minute walk from the train and the buses. The flat had a helpful archive of sightseeing brochures, maps, take-away menus, and bus schedules. The flat's neat little library of DVDs yielded Mapp and Lucia, based on author E F Benson's tales of Rye; we had fun identifying the filming sites in town. Rye is welcoming in the day and generally quiet at night. Be ready, though -- the Pipemaker's Arms, a nearby pub, features live music every Saturday night (9 until Late), which makes sleep impossible until the wee hours of Sunday. However, that was a small matter; we slept the sleep of the just the rest of the time. Overall, we had a wonderful stay in Rye. I will miss my early morning routine of putting on the kettle in the flat's kitchen, looking out over the roofs of the town, and listening to the gulls wheeling and shrieking. 15 Wishes was a delight.
