Good Hotel Guide Review

In a ‘prime High Street spot’, this ‘thoroughly enjoyable’ hotel has ‘the perfect mix of historic charm and up-to-date style and decor’. The centuries-old coaching inn has been a landmark since it entertained, in succession, the first three King Georges; today, ‘fashionable, quirky and fun’, it remains a hotspot for locals, passers-by and regular Guide correspondents who report being ‘well looked after’. The ‘cosy bar’ draws the crowds with its cocktails, local ales and English wines; in the all-day restaurant (‘a tasteful melange of appealing patterns’), sample a modern European menu packed with Rye Bay seafood. Bedrooms have ‘all the comforts of a good hotel’, plus whimsical touches – a collection of Penguin Classics, perhaps – and ‘lots of nice products’ in the bathroom. Some rooms are well suited for a family. Ground-floor courtyard rooms open on to a ‘pretty, sunny’ alfresco eating and drinking area – ask for a room in the main building for more privacy, Guide readers suggest. Inside or out, breakfast is ‘delicious’: ‘tasty sausages; excellent eggs Florentine; a perfectly poached egg’. ‘They happily tailored the cooked options to our desires.’ (AW, ANR, David Berry)

Guest comments

'The reservation service was poor but the superior room was good, especially the recently refurbished bathroom. But the television remote control did not work. In the restaurant the food was of a good standard but the service was dozy. The inability to park a car in the hotel grounds is an inconvenience. ' - A B - February, 2012
