We stayed for two nights, our first stay here. The very friendly greeting on arrival, the good-sized very clean room, the very convenient location for the Rye Citadel and the very reasonable price made us wish we had discovered the Regent on our earlier visits to Rye.

I stayed one night in this recently-refurbished motel and enjoyed it. The decor and facilities are excellent - perhaps because they're new but that's fine for me. There's parking around the back and as it's right next to the police station I'd imagine pretty safe. It's very close to the centre of town and there's only a short walk up...

Thank you for your review. We do have a list in the entrance Hall with a list of places offering Breakfast and a marked map, but if any are going to close for work/holidays then it would be in the winter months.

Me and my partner stayed for one night, to be honest we was unsure what to expect because of the name. We was pleasantly surprised, our room was lovely! Really spacious, 2 windows and Spotlessly clean! There is also parking, very conveniently located to Rye town. Would definitely stay again, much more affordable than other hotels in Rye Thank you

We stayed here for 1 night to go to a wedding nearby. We were welcomed warmly by the owner who was also really helpful in helping us get a taxi to the wedding venue, (she also makes a lovely cocktail!) The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Also need to mention the mini bar in the room was a stroke...

I booked a kite surf training in Camber Sands (The Kitesurf center) and on their recommended accommodation list was this motel. From the first contact I felt I made the right choice, very friendly and relaxed owner. The rooms are clean and each one had it's own touch. The place is 2 mins away from the train station and the...

We stayed at this hotel whilst visiting the Rye Jazz festival, it was clean and comfortable and very good value for money. There is no restaurant but due to its central location finding meals was no problem. Reception was not manned 24 hours but as we had a front door key this was not a problem. All in all we...

We have stayed here before and it has recently been refurbished - there has also been a small bar added downstairs. Very pleased to return - very good value for money - lovely, clean, sizeable room, with everything you need. Even factoring the cost of going somewhere for breakfast the next day, it is a huge saving for staying in...

The cottage had everything we needed in it. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The only criticism was, we had to use the put you up bed and the mattress could have been more comfortable. The cottage is in the centre of Rye, near all the shops and facilities and near other interesting places to visit e.g. Sandgate, Hastings, Winchelsea...
