The George in Rye Logo Book

Voted Top 10 “Most romantic hotels” The Sunday Times

Located in the centre of Rye, East Sussex, the hotel was renovated to create one of the most stunning hideaways on the south coast. The building dates from 1575 and has enviable heritage; it even has an original Georgian ballroom used for lavish weddings and banquets. An eclectic and contemporary design has been given to this historic fabric using a wide range of antique and modern furniture, materials and art. The result is a comfortable blend of old and new, creating an atmosphere which is relaxed, informal and individual.

Rye is unlike any other town in England. A medieval town locked in time and with a fascinating history, it offers a great escape for relaxation or romance. Four miles from the white beach of Camber Sands the sea air is wonderful any time of year. We look forward to welcoming you to The George in Rye.

NOTICE

Hello friends of the George.

As our restoration continues through 2021, we wanted to give you an update on our progress.

The roof is on, and scaffolding is coming down in stages. The top floor bedrooms are now complete and looking incredible. The Ballroom has a beautiful new plaster ceiling; the chandeliers are gleaming and ready to install, and the floors have been laid. Working our way down, our attention has turned to the ground floor with lots of exciting developments.
Things are really starting to take shape and it doesn’t feel too far distant now when we will be fluffing up the pillows on beds and firing up the Josper for our first dinner service. We can’t wait!

We had hoped to open for Christmas, but realistically it will be 2022; we will, of course, let you know when we have a confirmed date.

We would like to thank the local and wider community for their support, and we can't wait to welcome you back to show you all the amazing things that have been happening behind the scenes.

Best wishes
Alex, Katie and all the team at The George
