The Gallivant, Rye
We stayed in the Shug Cabin room. The bathroom looks nice but totally not practical and shower was awful. I’ve had better shower at campsites! Nice place overall but over priced for what it was and the location. Dinner and breakfast were nice, but they only seem to have small plates?! My partners steak and chips were literally squashed onto a small plate. If you charge £28 for steak and chips we’d expect something a little better!

Such a find.......a complete GEM of a place
Fantastic room, food and staff. Although was a little more expensive than I usual pay when travelling for work, I am so glad I did this once. Highly recommended!!!!!

Short stay experience
Stylish and enthusiastic concept. Good food with local produce and most things home produced, including bread and butter. Might consider changing the menu more often or separating the lunch one from the dinner one. Very good breakfast. Service levels are a bit patchy and some staff are insufficiently proactive. Rooms are comfortable and well serviced. Lovely gardens outside the window. All a little cramped though.

Pleasant experience with a few things to improve
Great location, so close to the beach, a very stylish decor. Good food at the restaurant. The service at the restaurant could be better - the waiters were slow and forgot several items from the order. Soundproofing of the room is quite poor. Overall a pleasant experience but feels a bit overpriced.
