Had really good stay here with friendly staff adequate breakfast comfortable room and good evening Meal with excellent service ,Great situation for touring the area and close to Rye ,free parking ,only criticism was the kerb appeal would help from a bit of landscaping.
Very friendly and helpful welcome from Jamie. Round room v clean and well appointed. Quiet sunny garden and great to have breakfast outside! Easy walk into Rye and lots of good walks around the area provided by the Inn.
There is no need to spend hours searching for a place to stay if you intend visiting Rye. From the moment we arrived we could not have been made to feel more welcome. Kim ( the owner ) should be very proud of what she has to offer. Jamie and Amy were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble and they catered for every whim with a smile and a laugh. A real credit.breakfast was a knockout with piping hot freshly cooked traditional English breakfast or any combination that took your fancy. We had one evening meal there ( out of a two night stay ) and this was once again superb all cooked to order in a really homely classy restaurant. The ample seating in the beautiful manicured gardens were a delight to sit in and while away an hour or so chilling out and admiring the fantastic old school hop chimneys that we’re the centre point of this enchanting rustic inn. The room was spotless and comfortable and even though we only stayed for two nights we were made to feel special and treated like old family friends. You will have to be lucky to book as there are only 8 rooms but this all added to charm and general feeling of being treated as special by all the members of the great team that Kim has assembled. We spent a couple of special evenings￼, after spending long days exploring the many charming sites and old world curiosity shops and quaint little tea rooms and spectacular churches and castle ruins, just chatting away like long lost friends, in the lovely old school bar area. One thing I sadly forgot was to find out the name of the lovely woman who served breakfast. Once again she was a jolly,happy member of the team who found nothing was too much trouble to serve her guests. We found the whole experience charming with a great old time inn if you go anywhere you should make the Playden Oats your number one choice. Thanks again. Terry and Josie ( room 6 )…
We spent a couple of nights for a mid week getaway and found it the perfect place to explore the surrounding are just a mile or so out of Rye in a nice quite location. All the staff were very pleasant and Kim the owner was lovely, nothing was to much trouble. The breakfast was really nice and plenty big enough. We eat in the restaurant in the evenings and the meals were really nice. We would stay there again if in the area.
Very welcoming staff, picturesque building. Large room with bath & shower. Nice touch having a wide selection of DVDs for in room viewing. Excellent breakfast. The only downside was the bed was soft & not very comfortable, there were also a few things in the room that needed some maintenance - towel rail & shower riser were not very secure.
