Thanks so much for this review - comments are always welcome. There is actually a brand new freezer on the top floor - sorry you missed it, perhaps we should have pointed it out ... hope you managed to have your drinks chilled enough without! Hope to welcome you again sometime.

A well-maintained apartment in the heart of beautiful Rye. It was well-equipped and served both as a cosy hideaway and as a handy base for sightseeing. It's tall and thin, which means that there … More
Thanks! That's so nice to hear. Actually, re. the water temperature: we are now adding a sign to say "run the hot tap slowly" as then it gets very hot. It's just one of those Medieval Rye things! Really glad you all had a great time and hope to see you again.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review The Quarter House, a lovely response and we are really glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We've had a great summer, weather-wise, to make the most of the local beaches... a Medieval town so close to the sea is an unusual combination so it's really a fun place to have a holiday.
