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)

The bed was so comfortable that we both slept like a log. The breakfast was amazing. . ' - Chris and Alison Brett - January, 2018
'Last stayed around 20 years ago, still just as welcoming beautiful, comfortable and relaxing. Richard so helpful about Rye's attractions. We felt at home and were loathe to leave. The bar decoration - both dramatic and glamorous. Breakfast exquisitely good! ' - Mary Ellin Osmond - July, 2016
'Old-fashioned (but not ‘tired’) bedroom, charmingly higgldy-piggledy, pretty, with ample comfortable seating. Spacious, well-equipped bathroom. Handsome galleried breakfast room, with excellent buffet and very good cooked additions as required. Two pleasant sitting areas – a bar and snug – with honesty boxes for drinks. Parking free of charge about six minutes' walk away. ' - Richard Osborne - June, 2016
