The hotel has one of the finest locations in this ancient town of the Cinque Ports. Rye Lodge Hotel is perched on the East Cliff with panoramic views across the Estuary and the Romney Marshes, yet close to the High Street with its quaint old shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. Just 'a stones throw' of the Landgate, a monument built in 1326 as the entrance to the town. Virtually the whole town within the Citadel is a conservation area designated as of historical interest. Rye is one hour by car from Dover and Canterbury.
