Good Hotel Guide Review
‘It’s a lovely place to stay, with great character and charm.’ Readers visiting Jenny Hadfield’s 17th-century B&B ‘as a little treat’ to celebrate an occasion in 2018 ‘were made to feel special and right at home. Jenny and her team are wonderful hosts.’ The ivy-covered former wool storehouse, on a pretty cobbled street, has remained unchanged for centuries. Its beamed bedrooms are ‘charmingly higgledy-piggledy’; sloping floors and ceilings, and low beams, are de rigueur. ‘You can feel the history all around you.’ Some rooms overlook the wilds of Romney Marsh; others Rye’s rooftops. ‘The bed was so comfortable that we both slept like logs; there was ample seating and a well-equipped bathroom.’ Downstairs, find crackling fires, wood-panelled walls hung with prints and oil paintings, antiques and a ‘dramatic, glamorous bar’ with an honesty box for drinks. Served in the ‘handsome’ galleried former chapel, ‘breakfast is amazing’ with Richard Martin’s ‘very good cooked dishes’ of local sausages, oak-smoked haddock, potato rösti and devilled kidneys. A fount of local knowledge as well as tasty food, ‘he was so helpful about Rye’s attractions’. (Chris and Alison Brett, MEO, RO)
