  •   A lovely room in its own private "wing" in the house, spotless, cozy and spacious. Breakfast was included in the price of the room, and was great. Very good location only a 5-7 min walk to the centre of Rye.

  •   This was a wonderful place to stay. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious and comfortable and had everything we could have needed. The B&B is located very close to town and walking in is very easy and convenient. Breakfast was delicious, we sampled most of the menu over the course of our few days stay and everything was top notch! The hosts were friendly and helpful and had lots of advice on the local area.
    We wished we could have stayed longer!

  •   Wonderful stay in a large lovely suite. Love the location, close to the train station and town of Rye, but on edges of country, very quiet. I wish I had booked an extra night.

  •   Gill and The Red House are fantastic. The room is a delight, spacious and very comfortable, the bathroom is very well appointed. Having the fridge in the little anti room is a bonus. The breakfast was delicious and well cooked. The off road parking was also an added bonus.
    Gill as a host was lovely, very attentive and knowledgeable. The map of Rye she gave us was a godsend listing the local eating places (booking early is a must for a lot of them). It is a short walk to the pretty town.

    We would highly recommend Gill and The Red House

  •   We had the loveliest stay here and we’re very sad to leave! The room was stunning, an oasis of calm with some lovely touches such as prosecco in the fridge! The breakfast was also incredible, a good amount of choice and everything we had was delicious. Gill was so welcoming and great at communicating in the lead up to our stay. Everything was absolutely perfect and we hope to be back again one day!
    As for Rye itself, it was our first time visiting and we loved it so much. A fairly small place but with so much to offer – great pubs/restaurants/cafes, gorgeous shops and beautiful scenery. Could happily have stayed a few more days!
