The George In Rye

Rated 9.0 in 661 reviews. 34 rooms.


Prominently positioned on the cobbled high street of the medieval town of Rye, The George in Rye is one of England’s most highly regarded small hotels – a Grade II listed bolt-hole offering a welcoming retreat for foodies, design lovers and the creatively-inclined. Recently, it’s become a firm favourite and unofficial home of cast and crew members filming on location in 1066 country including George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray and John Goodman who all stayed whilst filming ‘Monuments Men’.

This luxury, stylish hideaway is located in the centre of Rye and offers elegant, well-designed rooms, local wines and a restaurant menu infused with Mediterranean zest.

The George presents a comfortable blend of old and new, creating an atmosphere which is relaxed, informal and individual. Dating from 1575, it has an enviable heritage, and even an original Georgian ballroom used for lavish weddings and banquets.

The main focus of the bedrooms is comfort and style, each being individually designed with its own fabrics, colour scheme and bespoke furniture. Indulge yourself with the marble-top baths with chrome power showers and Aveda products.
