All was good, excellent value, good breakfast and the bar meals were fine, the staff were helpful and friendly ... I don't really like to pick out anyone in particular but Chris, James and Tom were excellent. Shower was a bit cramped but given the value of our 2 night break we can't really complain, hope to go again some...

We have stayed there two or three times before and have always returned based on the previous excellent experience. The pre-Christmas "deal" that we had always enjoyed before was not, this year, on offer, however, we were able to negotiate something similar for our group which, whist structured differently, worked out much the same in cost. As usual, we booked...

My wife and I recently stayed in one of the superior rooms at the hotel. The arrival was very welcoming and we were able to leave our luggage prior to the check in time. The room itself was very spacious, with exposed timber frames and beams. It had a very large (I think queen-sized) and comfortable double bed, an extra...

Party of four stayed at the Hope Anchor for one night B&B, our second visit. Excellent value with Groupon voucher and we 'splashed' out on evening meal which was delicious and also very good value. All staff were welcoming and attentive and a minor problem with the TV in our room was sorted with prompt attention and a move to...

Visited the Hope Anchor Hotel for one night via a Groupon deal so wasn't expecting much, but how wrong could you be. Parked up outside the hotel in a quiet cobbled street overlooking the estuary. We were greeted by Chris the Director who was very friendly and welcoming and were shown to our cosy room which was very clean and...

My wife and I took advantage of a Groupon voucher to visit Rye. From the moment we arrived the service was superb, the room was good with a channel view. The weather on arrival was very windy and the hotel had lost a few tiles. The wind was very strong on the first night but subsided for the rest of...

We stayed for 1 night with a groupon voucher. The check in was excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Bolthole room which was small but really cosy and it had everything that we required. It was in the town so you dont need your car. The breakfast was good, the waiters were new I assume...

Lovely small hotel in Rye. Comfortable room, staff very friendly. Very good food in restaurant. Right in town centre, parking limited but we found space. Quiet area and reached by cobbled streets. Would definitely come back again to this hotel.

Weekend break using Groupon. Hotel in a great location but quite difficult to drive to through the narrow and winding streets. Once parked easy to walk around Rye and visit some nice pubs. Breakfast was very good. Our room overlooked the river and was comfortable but quite small - because of the Groupon deal? Would stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Although famous for its past, the Hope Anchor is known locally for its stunning views across the Quayside, Romney Marshes, Camber Castle and beyond to the sea. Most of our rooms enjoy these panoramic views and to be honest they need to be seen to be believed. Although beautiful all year round the sunsets in summer bring locals young and old to enjoy alfresco dining accompanied of course with a glass or two of wine! ... more   less
