A pleasant stay.
We had a very pleasant two night stay in a lovely roundel room. The restaurant food was good and service friendly and attentive. The location is pretty and only a few minutes drive from Rye. I'm sure we will return.

4/10 Fair

Not as expected
Turned up and checked in only to be moved due to having a dog when specifically searched for pet friendly, instantly made to feel we might have to go home then we effectivley got downgraded. Room wasnt as nice, chocolate wrapper(poisonous to dogs) left in room. Was very small for the price we paid for the night. Who paints tiles especially in a shower? Here. Tiny. extractor not working so humidity would be high if it wasnt for the worst shower ever. Walls so thin you can hear the neighbours. Breakfast and dinner was a nightmare, get seperated due to dog again but nothings ever setup, they would know we are at least doing breakfast. If you like gritty susages and hard fried eggs youll love it here, if not, not so much. So much poteential sadly missed. It was a quiet area and a public footpath with mapped route just down the road

6/10 Good

Quaint but disappointing
Very quaint hotel and staff where friendly But unfortunately the room was stark , not very clean, very old worn furniture ( which should have been thrown out ):. Bed very worn and extremely uncomfortable, bathroom m door doesn’t shut properly or lock Extension lead use'd for lamp by side of bed (not very safe) Plug sockets on wall so dirty I didn’t want to put my charger in it , strong smell of mould coming from empty store room next door Breakfast was ok. Such a shame as this could be an amazing hotel with just a little imagination and finishing touches Wouldn’t go again especially as I paid for the expensive room and certainly wasn’t worth it at all

It's a charming property with friendly and helpful owners and great staff. The food is excellent. It's not fancy but the bed and room were comfortable with everything you'd need. Pleasant surroundings and close to Rye and Camber Sands.

Very nice property that is a converted oast house so you have the circular rooms that are the restaruant areas. Old creaky stairs etc make this hotel have a pleasant atmosphere. Well worth a try for somewhere different. Good rooms and facilities. Very helpful friendly staff.

Would stay here again
Having read prevous reviews we arrived with open minds. Many of the critical comments made in the last couple of years seem to have been addressed. E.g. the car park, the gardens and the decor. We arrived an hour before the advertised check in time which was not even mentioned as we shown to our roundel room. The room was very clean and the decoration fresh. The bed was large and comfortable and smelt fresh. We enjoyed our evening meal but found the drinks a little expensive, maybe that's the going rate for this area. Breakfast was plentiful and our cooked breakfast hot. Although we were confused that several people requested scrambled egg and were told they couldn't do them as they were short on milk and awaiting a delivery. As we didn't have cereal we donated ours! The only thing we feel worth mentioning is that the roundel really could do with some nets at the windows as there was no privacy unless we closed the slightly too small blind and the curtains.

Took my partner to stay for her birthday as part of a couple of days in Rye. The rooms were a decent size and the bed was much softer than I'm used to but really comfortable, there was a small but very modern bathroom with an decent sized bath which my partner appreciated. I imagine Oast Houses are listed, so while there was a worry about it getting too hot at night due to no air con, the room was airy and comfortable, the even supply a large fan should you need it. The building itself is magnificent, one of the few Oast Houses open to the public, was great to see part of the Kent/Sussex heritage close up. The food for both dinner and breakfast was great, good options for vegi/pescatarians, the service at dinner was great given it was the manager and the kitchen staff only, and it has an open to the public bar, and she was also checking in guests, and the food was delicious. Likewise the breakfast was high quality and quick service, very pleased with it. The bar is small but has plenty of options including local ales and there's a great little garden to sit in and watch the house martins dashing about in the evening sun. It's located a mile out of central Rye, so it's very handy for town (up a hill all the way from the centre, it's paved though) and the hotel supply a load of taxi companies in case you don't want to tackle the hills or are going further afield. Overall, a place unique to the region and having a cozy, welcoming feel to it with good food. Recommended.
