Best cheese and parsley scones I've ever tasted, and scrummy ginger cake too! Good, friendly welcome from young lady. Seated in what felt like a hallway , which was bit of a shame, but think that's cos it was busy and they were social distancing tables. Food made up for that tho!

I have nothing but praise for the team who run the property day to day; all the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good and the best part of the stay. Issues are with accommodation – I can't see the “meticulous attention to detail and careful consideration” the webpage describes; or how it achieves it’s star rating. We stayed in the Whoopie room, which is spacious, but the bathroom looks like it has been squashed into an attic cupboard. The beams are REALLY low and come to a point just above the sink, which makes it almost inaccessible. There is no usable mirror to shave / apply make-up. The bathroom also has saloon doors which don’t fit; open or close properly. The shower tiles are also very mouldy and the hot water coming from the shower and the sink is scaldingly hot. There is a hanging rail, but nowhere to put folded clothes. Drinks are available in the room – bottled water (no glasses though), tea (only 1 bag per person per day) and coffee (1 pod per person per day). No fresh milk. After 5 pm service is non-existent, there are no members of staff at the property. If guests need anything, minor or more serious, like being locked out, there is no one to help. Once the café staff leave, guests are left to fend for themselves or go without. No websites mention the additional charge of £35 for the sofa bed (which is rock hard) to be made up, even if there are only two guests. Websites show this charge if there are three guests.

Located in the High Street, this is the perfect place to explore Rye. Our room was quite chic, big bed, interesting pictures, separate bathroom. Parking is easy. A five minute walk to the station with daily rates of £3.10 including booking fee and less elsewhere. Breakfast from the bakery menu was delightful. Perfect eggs benedict and I chose sour dough toast with bacon, tomatoes and mushroom, scrummy. The cafe is open from 8.30 to approximately 3.30 and the bruch element is fabulous. My choice of Smoky beef brisket would grace any table and my wife's Bhaji Budda bowl was rich in flavour. Aside from the obvious daily mooching in Rye it is worth looking up the Kino cinema, well signposted. A super little corner with two comfortable screen rooms, a well stocked cafe and bar, with a lovely seating area on the terrace.

Very convenient for everything but parking can be a challenge, though surprisingly cheap when you find it. Rooms are attractive and stylish with comfy king sized beds and good bathrooms. Breakfast is fine with plenty of choice but the cafe is rather soulless and the staff could be more welcoming.

We popped in on our last morning in Rye, hoping for a decent coffee and considering a snack. Once we saw the menu, the consideration was over! The brunch menu could not be resisted and we enjoyed a bacon sandwich in flatbread and halloumi hash with an egg on top. Both were absolutely delicious and the coffee did not disappoint either, very smooth with a great taste. Staff were very friendly and efficient, as they managed the steady flow of customers whilst adhering to the Covid guidelines competently. Only a small reason for not awarding 5 stars and that is that our table was in a corridor which could have worked if it hadn't been directly looking into a kitchen area which felt a bit strange. To be fair we were offered a couple of different tables and we did choose that one, I just didn't appreciate the position until we sat down. Anyway this didn't ruin the great meal and the kitchen looked clean :-)
