I can't imagine any possible improvement to this b&b. It felt like home from the off. I cant recommend it highly enough.
Having to leave.
The Strand House was a beautiful stay. Lovely inside and out, lovely little garden to walk around after having breakfast and stunning views from our bedroom window. The staff were lovely and very attentive. Will definitely be returning and have told lots of friends about our stay at The Strand :)
A beautiful house in a superb location close to both Rye and Winchelsea with plenty of superb walks nearby. A very warm welcome by all the staff. Top quality breakfast in very acceptable portions.
Have to say that the bed was rather uncomfortable as one half was level and the other half sloped (had to jam 4 cushions under the side of the mattress to prevent oneself rolling to the edge!!). The shower cubicle was adequate only for someone with the physique of a racing snake, anyone larger just wouldn't fit! Plumbing was very noisey, the next room woke us 3 times during the night with toilet flushing which sounded like Niagra Falls !! A few too many cobwebs !!
The owners give you a totally personal service.... They upgraded us to the master bedroom at no extra cost and were very good to us. Breakfast was delicious. Great place, if you want a quiet, calm place to rest.
Quaint very good +++4** old listed building with lots of 'things going on years ago' ideas! Very good breakfast and lots of it,yummy. Staff were very good,helpful knowledgeable. Bed was bliss, and the old dark lighting added to the mystery of the place. Well kept timber areas have been treated and looked after,looks original. It must have been a staging post of some description in olden days.Spooky and very good.TV was good and easy to use.Good mirror in bathroom. We had the Master Bedroom and were pleased.
These comments are for Likes. Bring your hard hat if you are tall as you will lose your head. Very funny low ceilings and slanting floors.No you are not drunk!! Thin walls,floors and ceilings.Spiral staircase. I like this dislike as it is very funny. Should be in the GREEN section. Ha Ha.KEEP QUIET in the loo. Even funnier.The place is really funny.Do not reject until you try it.So visit.
Really warm welcome from the owners; comfortable accommodation in the communal living rooms with loads of books and games; great for a relaxing break; excellent walking country nearby.
Bathroom very small!
I loved Strand House it was so warm and welcoming and the hosts were helpful in everyday. I would gladly stay again and recommend to others.
Beautiful historical building. Comfortable surroundings with a homely feel to it. A great birthday weekend for my husband. Definitely recommend this wonderful retreat
Beautiful historic building, very friendly welcome, delicious breakfast, nicely placed in Winchelsea so close to Rye and Winchelsea beach too.
Only downside was very low ceiling in our top floor room - I'm 6' tall and couldn't quite stand up straight in the shower. But the room was very nice and comfy, so not a big issue in the scheme of things!
We were three older women traveling together and the triple room was perfect for us. It was a pleasure to stay in this ancient house and the breakfast offerings were above par. The owners are extremely personable and welcoming and eager to please.
This is certainly not a comlaint, only a caveat: very tall people might want to consider that our medieval ancestors where much shorter and in certain rooms the ceiling beams can be somewhat hazardous in the middle of the night. Also the old staircase is a bit tricky with luggage.
Friendly welcome, beautiful English cottage property, good views, accessible walks and beach. Delicious breakfast spread.
Breakfast staff a bit slow and chatty... Toast came after the breakfast.
Quaint Tudor house with low beams and doorways. Welcoming hosts and staff. Excellent breakfast with wide choice of menu options
Bed had seen better days. WIFI signal only in lounge. Hazardous driveway off main road
We loved it - very cosy - beautifully decorated and furnished - fabulous sense of history - proprietors kind and helpful - more like a boutique hotel than a B and B.
Historical building, very comfortable bed, tastefully furnished room and sitting room, tasty breakfast.
Breakfast slightly on the small side, location: quite close to a busy road. From a hygiene point of view, I am not sure about the soap dispenser in the shower. Is the pump disiffected between guests?
Real character and the rooms where lovely and cosy and clean. The staff were amazing, very attentive and kind. Nothing a problem. Beautiful surroundings and first class food, evening meal was superb and breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend.
Nothing ... all good
floor height urges to bend your head all the time. The age of the building causes many discomforts.
everything, lovely cottage, great rooms and service.
close to road
This is a very pretty, characterful and historic property and so it is a real privilege to stay there. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxing.
On non-cooking nights one has to drive into Rye for a good choice of restaurants. The historic nature of the house brings some disadvantages in comfort issues.
Very charming old house; unusually good breakfast
Historic nature of the building; proximity to restaurants, international rail; beauty of countryside.
The Strand Hotel is in a wonderful location for easy access to Rye and Winchelsea. It's on the main road, but quiet inside so you feel like you're tucked away somewhere. There is a pathway the entire way along the road to Rye so it's walkable, but there are no street lights so it made for an interesting walk back that night. The room was pretty. The floor was VERY slanted, and the showerroom very small, but it had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. The team/coffee making facilities even have shortbread biscuits which is a nice touch. The afternoon tea was huge, there was so much to eat, so don't have lunch before you have it. The breakfast was delicious. They offer you a buffet cereal, fruit, juices etc, and then a cooked breakfast too with Tea and coffee and unlimited toast (or so it seemed). The breakfast room is clean and bright and looks loved. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The layout of the building is quirky, and the lounge area is cosy. We would definitely come back to stay here.
The welcome wasn't great - we stood for ages in the doorway waiting for someone and then although we'd arranged early checkin, the papers weren't ready. The afternoon tea took quite a while to come out, and then we weren't given the same options as the other guests at the table next to us. (They had a choice of cakes, where ours was just delivered - and the toffee cake was a bit dry, we would have preferred chocolate like the table next to us had.)
Lots of character, comfortable, looked after. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. Provision of dairy alternative was helpful and the breakfast was good.
Minor point, the toast from ordinary sliced brown bread wasn't great as opposed to all other ingredients which were very tasty
The personable and helpful owners, the Tudor house beautifully decorated with flair, the comfy bed and duvet, the quietness of the room, the lovely bathroom, and the great choice at breakfast time. The area has plenty to offer, and it was a good base for a mini-break.
Honesty bar Games Sitting rooms Toy sheep, fairies, etc. in garden

All the staff were very warm & friendly & made us feel welcome from the start.
