In order to get china visa, the consulate needs to have confirmation as to how we arrive and depart.

The political Right embodies this ideology, promoting self made fortunes justified by the so called trickle down effect on the economic welfare of the not so well off. The old world ruling elite however were expected to look after their subjects or they were likely to revolt. These days ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The George in Rye
Food for thought!
I have to agree with Alex. The hotel has been styled and decorated to a high standard but it stops there.
The presentation of the food was poor and the service chaotic.
The cheese on my cheese board looked like it had been cut the night before. I cook a better Full English at home.
Might choose to stay in one of the very confortable rooms but won't be eating there again.
I am so surprised that The George has had some off reviews... they must be mad: it's amazing!
How English hotels have come on. This one retains just the right balance between the traditional and modern, with attention to detail that is hard to fault: lovely fluffy towels, crisp white linens, top quality fittings.
The George delivers the kind of hotel experience you often hope for but so rarely get. We stayed for two nights midweek (taking advantage of the off season midweek special) with our young son of 16 months.
You'll love the George
The George is situated in the heart of Rye and certainly feels like it should do. The accomodation is fab with lots of attention to detail. Breakfast was lovely, great service, especially from Justina and again, nice touches including 'proper' linen napkins, fab cutlery and the freshest orange juice that we've ever tasted.
The bar is great and the 'hub' of the place. We were there 3 nights and each time, both lunchtime and evening, it was busy with a nice clientele.
A special mention should go to Chelsea who was one of the most helpful people that we've come across in our travels. My husband and I have stayed at some very lovely, expensive, 5 star hotels and this does rank among the best.
Stayed here for my 40th birthday with my husband and 7 year old daughter. Loved it to bits. The room was very comfortable with lovely decor. The bed was so comfortable and even my daughter said her Z bed was as good as her bed at home!
The bathroom was lovely and the shower was excellent.
Didn't have dinner but the breakfast was delicious with every attention to detail. The service here was good, very friendly with nice attention paid to my daughter. In fact all the staff were great and very helpful. Great location and would love to go back sometime.
My Husband and I have just returned from a wonderful New Years eve stay at the George. From the minute we walked through the door to the time we left we felt at home in the place. The decor is warm and tasteful with added quirky twists. from the paint colours, wallpapers, carpets to the lamp shades every item is carefull put together to create a very unique interior.
Could be the best small hotel in England. Stunning. Beautiful. Friendly. Modern. Clean. Comfortable. Wonderful food and drink. Location is fantastic. Bathroom, bed, even the TV is top drawer. Only wish we could have stayed another night. Again, this might be the best small hotel in England. Don't miss it. ps. Try the flame grilled spicy sausage with a pint in their WONDERFUL on-site pub. Stunning!!!
Just stayed in this totally refurbished hotel and loved the whole experience...
Open desk on check in, wonderful decor. No car park though but they were happy to help. Loved the room, loved the bar and the beer selection. (Nice to see carling and stella out for a change...). Prices are reasonnable and the place is definately worth a visit. Food is simple, but very good and fresh... you can tell!
Other reviews criticise breakfast, cant' be perfect for everyone, I loved it!!!
We LOVE Rye so we were pleased to see someone had taken on such a great building and excited to see it being done with such style. You can totally tell the makeover has been done well. Our bedroom was across the pretty courtyard in a separate building so quiet, comfy and stylish - flatscreen tv, dream bathroom, cute chairs etc. We didn't eat dinner there - the dining room is a bit dull, and the menu looked like it was trying too hard (I used to work in London restaurant trade, so I know!) Anyway, the best place to eat in Rye is called The Globe on Military Rd, run by people who really know what they're doing. Breakfast service at the hotel was chaotic - bad service, mistakes on our order, and the room is a bit uncomfortable - tables too close together, no atmosphere, needs music...? its the sort of room where you feel you should whisper, which I hate. The food was OK though, good choice, good quality, well made.The hotel's no smoking policy means everyone from the bar stands in the courtyard smoking, so it was a bit akward to walk thru a noisy crowd to our room, and in the morning there were fag butts EVERYWHERE. So if they sort out the breakfast service and smoking zones we'd have rated it excellent. Love to go back though!
