The George in Rye East Sussex

“'Rye’s most luxurious hotel,’ they claim, and we think that is fair: newly renovated historic inn with plenty of special touches. Great seafood, sumptuous rooms with chic styling.”

“Vi-spring beds, Frette Italian bed linen and useful technology (wi-fi, flat screen TV, digital radios, DVDs collection) make the 24 bedrooms comfortable and enjoyable to stay in. Well chosen fabrics and furniture make them stylish. The rooms are remarkably varied in character. We think that gives the George the top ranking. But not all the rooms are equally large; make sure you know what you are getting. The dining room is open all day serving steaks and seafood from the charcoal grill. Parking has to be in a public car park five minutes’ walk away. This is a good, well run, modern hotel; comfortable and convenient, but perhaps not inspirational.”

They say

“Located in the centre of Rye, East Sussex, the hotel was recently renovated to create one of the most stunning hideaways on the south coast. The building dates from 1575 and has enviable heritage; it even has an original Georgian ballroom used for lavish weddings and banquets. An eclectic and contemporary design has been given to this historic fabric using a wide range of antique and modern furniture, materials and local art. The result is a comfortable blend of old and new, creating an atmosphere which is relaxed, informal and individual.”
