Excellent, top quality accommodation within minutes walk of Rye centre. Welcome pack of beer and wine much appreciated by husband after long drive! The flat was fully equipped and tastefully furnished with a great view out over the river - we saw several boats sail past. Ideal accommodation for a couple, our second holiday away without teenage children - just what we could have wished for. Plenty of excellent cafe's/restaurants/coffee/tea shops - spoilt for choice. Good customer service from the owner when contacting him for key arrangements. We did not make use of the Wi-fi as charges were very high, would have preferred small cost to have been included in the rent. Car parking in numbered bay right outside property.

If your looking for a nice quiet well appointed apartment in the town of Rye you would have great difficulty in getting any better than 16 The Boathouse. The place was spotless with good facilities and a nice bottle of wine and 2 bottles of lager to welcome us. If there was any downside it would be the decrepid yacht hulks moored in the river outside of the window but this did not detract from the overall enjoyment of our stay. The contact arrangements and key collection was ver easy with no problems at all.

visited rye many times in the past and stayed in the town at various cottages but this was the best due to the parking facility in a town with limited parking.the boat house was a delight with the river and boats going by and the apartment having all mod cons.only down side was sofa bed for third person being time consuming.
“Comfortable and quiet accommodation yet just a 5 min walk to the”

Very well presented apartment with beer and wine left on the table as a welcoming gift.The apartment was very clean and comfortable and had an allocated car parking space. The views from the lounge were wonderful with ever changing scenes as the tide ebbed and flowed. At high tide boats sail past the lounge window virtually within touching distance (the flat is on the first floor)
There are lots of walks and the harbour and beach are just a short drive away. The town of Rye is very attractive and has lots of places to eat out in, though it is best to book for the more popular ones. There is a guide book with comments in the flat

We had visited Rye many years ago when our children were young, and fancied a short break there.
We found the Boathouse on the internet whilst searching for accommodation, and booked a weekend break. This was at the end of November 2010, just when the cold spell started. We loved the well equiped apartment, lovely view over the river and very handy for Rye with its great selection of pubs and restaurants. Despite the weather (we had snow!), we really enjoyed our stay, it was nice and cosy, so much so, that we have booked it again for later this year, hopefully it will be warmer outside!

Enjoyed our stay in this clean and well presented accommodation. The owner clearly had thought of everything you would need including the use of a bicycle!
Well situated within 5 mins walk of Rye Town and 10 mins to local Railway station which was great as we didn't have to use the car unless we just wanted to go to the local beaches. Plenty of good local restaurants including a chippy.
Only disappointment with accommodation was no garden/area to sit out in but did not present a real problem as only stayed one week.
