My husband Robert said that it took him some hours to decide on the accommodation that he wanted us to stay to celebrate our 7th wedding aniversary as he wanted to make it very special for me. I can assure you that I was completely lost for words when I saw Saltcote Place in Rye. The peacefulness of the surroundings,...

This is a very special place which Paul and Alan run as almost a personal country house retreat. From the moment you arrive your luggage disappears to your room while you sit back and enjoy a tea or glass of wine with them. All rooms including the kitchen/diner where breakfast is taken are beautifully decorated and the same attention is...

Our whole experience this weekend at Saltcote Place has been exceptional. Alan and Paul couldn't have made our stay more special. They went out of their way to help my boyfriend execute his proposal and helped us celebrate wonderfully. Not only is the breakfast delicious and the room spotless, but their attention to detail and their hosting skills are second...

It started with a wonderful welcome from Alan with a glass of wine and a friendly chat. We stayed in the Royal Military Suite which was absolutely amazing. Paul and Alan offer a a turn down service at night with a nightcap of your choice put in your room on a silver tray with chocolates. When we went down for...

We said we'd be back and back we were. This time briefly but have also booked in again for a few days in February next year. Lovely to catch up again with Paul and Alan. Place looked as lovely on our arrival and we're welcomed as friends. Great guys and great place. Can't wait to get back. See you soon...

Brilliantly warm welcome, tea & conversation. Personal and creative attention to our every need - from a champagne breakfast with Alan's scrumptuous "loch" eggs (scrambled, with smoked salmon), and an evening night-cap (our choice of port) in our room, to rose petals on our duvet on our anniversary! Paul gave us lots of helpful information about the best places to...

We were welcomed with tea and conversation - it was as if we were visiting old friends and made to feel at home. The location, decor, ambience and friendliness was spot on. Although ours was a very short stay, we felt we had had a truly relaxing time - crowned by the pre-breakfast champagne! The breakfast itself was so good...

Saltcote is a luxurious b&b with bells on. The hosts, Paul and Alan are welcoming, relaxing and entertaining providing excellent breakfasts with champagne. The attention to detail is exceptional. The suite we stayed in was warm and comfortable and we particularly liked the nightcap which was left on a silver tray when we returned from our day out. I can...

Salcote Place Rye is a beautiful old mansion in a quiet hill top location. Formerly the Hennessy family of Brandy fame, estate. It has been transposed into a lovely B&B. Breakfast served on fine bone china with crystal drinking glasses.. Warm friendly hosts who will ensure you have a very pleasant stay.

When we arrived we were shown into Paul and Allan's stunning kitchen. Large enough to house a small apartment with walls lined with glazed cupboards containing sparkling crystal, shelves bearing examples of antique objets d'art and a Georgian wall clock I'm coveting. The acres of polished granite were gleaming under the chandeliers. Wine was poured for us and then we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relaxed calm warm & quiet, Saltcote Place is all about you, our home is a country mansion overlooking Rye where we offer a very bespoke personal service. We are not a hotel. We enjoy the early discussions when you are booking and then work with you to help you create something rather special for your break. Exclusive use We offer exclusive use weekends for private family celebrations and whilst we offer Weddings it will always be exclusive to the Couple so if you see a wedding here then you will personally know the Bride or Groom as WE NEVER MIX GUESTS. We hope you enjoy Champagne breakfasts and don't mind complimentary decanters upon your return in the evening. No Children under 15 unless at a Wedding With regret we cannot accept children under the age of 15. Please always try to BOOK DIRECT with us as you will save the Online Travel Agency commission. You found us without them so you do not need to pay more for your stay. ... more   less
