Fantastic location and good food
service at breakfast was hit and miss. We and other guests had to go and find the waiters to get served.
Friendly staff, good food, fast room service at famous historic smugglers/literary destination.
An ironic one. Ye olde metal inn sign outside bedroom window creaked, groaned and squeaked all night making sleep near impossible. Fine for ye old smugglers of yore...not so 4 ye businessperson of now!
Location great as was the room, food and the staff.
Nothing to dislike.
Really great hotel and VERY quirkey!
Rye is beautiful and especially Mermaid Street. This ancient hotel is one of the most beautiful buildings on Mermaid Street. Our room was really sweet and wooden beamed and warm and clean. There are many cosy warm reception rooms downstairs all with real fires which seemed to bring out a special sociability in the guests so we joined some other guests in their newspaper quiz in the early evening. We were totally relaxed during our whole time there and really enjoyed the evening meal in the dining room too.
Our room overlooked the car park and many car alarms went off during the night. Couldn't get wifi in the bedroom and reception didn't help too much so gave up trying and went to a reception room to work. They had nowhere to put muddy hiking boots which surprised me as there are great walking possibilities all around and I felt worried having to find somewhere to put them in the room without trailing mud everywhere.
Very friendly and accommodating staff
Location, log fires, cosy nooks to have a pre dinner drink, excellent dinner
Bathroom was freezing cold, public bar too busy to get a drink, facilities in room not worth £150.
There's nothing to dislike.
Cosy, warm and welcoming. Lovely resident lounges. Beautiful town, full of history Lovely Christmas decorations Staff very accommodating especially Little Sean!
Christmas lights not working in Rye! Saturday night menu pricey and no alternative Parking rather dodgy I didn't see a ghost!!
Room no 6 heating was mediocre and also had to wait a while for hot water to reach the room
Wonderful character as an ancient smugglers' tavern; cozy and bright; friendly staff; beautiful decor; the feeling of stepping back centuries.
Overall we enjoyed the hotel, the room was comfortable and clean. Staff were also helpfull and polite.
Breakfast, firstly when the breakfast arrived I requested some mustard, unfortunately it never arrived until I had nearly finished my meal, also for the hotel rating I thought it would be a freshly cooked breakfast, but as the breakfast came so fast it must have been pre-cooked as it would be impossible for it to have been cooked within the 5 minutes of ordering.
Wonderfully creaky and old; great bar; good food
Rather thin walls, so noisy at times
sevice and food excellent
on suite very poor, no proper shower, poor water pressure
I like anything in this beautiful old Inn.
Staff were all incredibly helpful and pleasant. The inn itself is a fascinating piece of history.
Kitchen smells in some of the upstairs areas. Slightly overheated and stuffy on the whole for our personal tastes, but may suit others.
everything from the moment i entered the mermaid.till i left...amazeing...
Everything except the bed. Staff helpful and friendly , nothing to much trouble for them. Food excellent as was the service. Will definitely visit again.
The bed was not long enough but was told the day of departure that we could have requested a divan style bed which we will do when we return in April/May. Would have liked a larger shower but adequate.
The building was amazing. A genuine 14th century building. The best building I have ever stayed in.
The food wasn t great and the attention to detail was lacking for the price.
Relaxed , friendly , warm Atmosphere... With Quaint charm , Love this place
Booking with booking.com be careful because, the type of room I thought I'd booked , ( seeing the pictures on the site - small print at the bottom) wasn't the type of room we got , I was lucky it was possible to be upgraded, would have been disappointed if upgrade wouldn't have been possible .... " kingsmill " is the room to choose
History, facilities and staff. Beer.
A little noisy.
the creaking floorboards, leaning walls, open fireplace, the beams, the history...everything!
The satisfaction of countless travellers gives this inn an atmosphere of contentment.
Nothing worth mentioning.
Lovely old building. Great location. Private parking. Helpful staff. Very clean.
Nothing. Just be aware that the building is 600 years old, so built when people were not as tall as they are now. This means that if you are tall you need to take care or you'll bump your head.
