Courtyard garden, DVD library, private dining and screening room, in‑room spa treatments, free WiFi, bike hire. In rooms, flatscreen TV, Vi‑Spring bed, Frette linens, marble‑edged (or roll-top) bath, rain shower head and Ren toiletries.
Each room is unique, so you’re bound to have your own preference, but we like cosy, pretty room 3; room 10 in the eaves with a roll‑top bath; and peaceful room 9. Room 6 has a gorgeous shower stall made from a wig cupboard. For a special weekend, book suite 1 for its double‑headed walk‑in shower. There's no lift, so some rooms (for example, room 25) aren't ideal for guests who have trouble climbing stairs.
A bucket and shade for the glorious beach at Camber Sands, plus an eye for an antiques bargain – Rye is renowned for its one-off outlets.
Lavender‑filled pillows and luxurious bottles of wild fig oil imported from Florence make evenings-in even more relaxing.
Welcome. An extra bed (£20 a night) can be added to some Superior rooms, Luxury rooms and some Junior suites (one has a sleeping pod for two tots). Cots (£10 a night) can be added to all room types and babysitting can be arranged with advance notice.
Babies and up - children of all ages welcomed.
Deluxe and Junior Suites are best for families because most can fit a cot or Z-bed (for an extra £10). Ask about rooms that share the same door onto the main corridor.
There isn't a creche, but babysitting can be provided during the day given prior notice.
The best beach for children is at Camber Sands, a long stretch of golden sands a short drive (or cycle ride) from the hotel. Ask staff to point you in the direction of family friendly activities, such as riding, crazy golf and sailing.
Children are allowed in the restaurant at all times. There's a dedicated children's menu, and staff are happy to heat up milk and food and organise packed lunches. There are light snacks available via room service available around the clock.
Staff are happy to arrange a registered nanny or babysitter. Please give as much notice as possible.
No need to pack
There are high chairs in the restaurant, as well as a baby-changing room nearby.
Every room has a TV, and there are DVD players available on request, plus a selection of child-friendly DVDs. Baby massage lessons for parents are available on request.
