We were staying at another Hotel and decided to pop in for a drink as it was our friends birthday, on arrival seen two receptionists at the desk not Evan a hello they were chatting away so asked were is the bar please, I got the pointed Arm no words, ( charming I Thought ) went to the bar and 1 chap working away whilst waiting we seen 3 other staff just standing chatting looking at us and others waiting. Then one of them said something to the others as they laughed he came to help, we all thought that was very disrespectful and extremely bad mannerd. We had to ask for the tables to be cleared as 4 empty but al dirty with cups and glasses, the got took but we asked for our table to be wiped but this did not happen, so instead of buying bottles of wine we had just one glass each and left, we all agreed the service was dreadful from the start, something the management must take note of????

Room Tip: Did not stay hear but after our service so glad we did not

Such a great stay as always. We were really spoilt and nothing was too much trouble. The bedrooms are amazing, really luxurious and such nice design details throughout the hotel, both inside in and out. Can't wait to return!

Located on its present site since 1719 under the reign of George 1st, The George has entertained the nobility and dignitaries of London on many occasions. Rye is one of the 5 Cinque Ports which were granted special privileges in return for men and ships in times of ware under Edward 1 (Longshanks). The town is therefore steeped in history and it is unsurprising that there is only limited on street parking near the hotel although there is a large car park a short walk away.

Th exams in the building date back many centuries and in some rooms be prepared for peculiar angles as their age is evident.

Th bar and courtyard garden are both to be enjoyed and you sit there with a foaming pint of ale thinking about the history of the place. It is mind blowing.

There is a well appointed, modern restaurant with grill that we ate at and the food was well prepared and without fault if a little unexciting.

This place is well worth staying at, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff will make you very welcome indeed.

I managed to book Suite 14 a few days before Easter at the last minute, having found it fully booked on line. I knew that the rates would be high because it was Easter weekend and accepted that I would be paying top price for the room £326 for Easter eve !
We were delighted with the hotel when we arrived. The decoration is warm and welcoming and there are comfortable chairs and couches, with fur rugs and cushions, beckoning you from the first moments in reception. The bar is well stocked with artisan craft beer and a comprehensive gin menu. You want to go inside ! It’s very inviting.
Our room No 14 was beautifully decorated with charming views of the rooftops! On the plus side we were furthest away from the noisy bar and restaurant area but on the negative side, the steep, narrow stairs up into this roof conversion suite were difficult to climb and the slopes ceilings throughout, made the room an occupational hazard everywhere! Particularly the 8” high step into a 5ft 8” high bathroom doorway, with a further deep step down into a reduced height bathroom and more than half the space extremely restricted by sloped ceilings. You have to have the light on and be extremely sure footed not to break your neck going through this doorway! It’s painted too and a slippery surface.
Getting out of bed is also fraught on the rhs! The first time I got out of bed I smacked my head sideways on the slopes ceiling and wrenched my neck!
The kettle and tea things are in baskets in the bottom of the only wardrobe with a sticky, difficult to use door. Once you have this out you have to negotiate the sloped ceilings by the console table, whilst holding the two baskets of tea stuff and then attempt to get through the bathroom door, holding this kettle to fill it up from the sink. It’s not easy! You then have to crawl about on your hands and knees to plug the kettle in and try not to smack your head on the sloped ceilings wither side of the small dormer when you stand up!
The bed was too small for us. Neither of us could sleep at the same time without getting too hot! Being in the roof, the room suffers with dramatic temperature change and although an oil radiator has been provided in the room for when the temperature drops, we were constantly turning it on and off and opening and closing the windows. It really isn’t an easy space to stay in for more than one night! And £326 for the night IS DEFINITELY TOO MUCH to pay for a room with these issues, whether it’s Easter eve or not!
After three nights in this room, we are definitely ready to go home. We would love to come again but will not be staying if this is the only room available!
Decorations and ambiance of hotel are quite exceptional. We are just sorry that our room was such a difficult space to be in.

We stay at The George a few times each year...travelling only from Kent .

We v had the annual bonfire nights stay here, birthday celebrations, Chrtmas break too....it’s always spot on .
Staff attentive and courteous.
Rooms comfy and welcoming .
Nothing we like more than a glass of wine in the bar .....and dinner in the restaurant in the evenings.
The George gets our vote every time

Room Tip: Room 23 very quiet
