10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"After seeing the negative reviews for the Mermaid I was prepaired for the worst!
Arrived on spec having been down to the tourist board and been sent to some B&B way too far away.
Its reasonably priced considering the location. The room was VERY clean AND charming as were the hosts.
Breakfast suberb - couldn't eat for another 5 hours! I would go back, I don't have anything negative to say.
My only suggestion would be to take earplugs - if you go in Summer - Seagulls start around 2.30a.m. Cotton wool was provided by the Jeakes in the room, alas I found it about 4.30a.m.

"Jeake's House is well-located and beautifully decorated. We had requested a twin-bedded room and actually had a room with one doube and one twin bed, ensuite bathroom, TV, hospitality tray and old world charm.
Breakfast is included and you have quite a choice; full English breakfast, fruit, cereal, Continenal and juice. The breakfast tables have linen table clothes and are set with silver and blue willow plates. There's an honesty bar and loads of daily newspapers and books in the guest sitting room. Jenny and Richard, the owners are helpful and friendly.
The car park is an easy 2 or 3 block walk and lets you out towards a major road. On the other side of the car park wall is a Budgens (sp?) grocery store and there's a laundrette at the far side of the train station car park. The High street has deli's and resturants and all kinds of little shops. Given the current exchange rate Jeakes House is pricey, but well worth it!"

"Beautiful street, beautiful building, beautiful room. Excellent location in centre of town, whilst also being very peaceful. We had the largest room, a 4-poster (which admittedly wasn't massive but it was more than adequate). Furnishings/bathroom etc all of very high quality. Courteous owners, even the cat is distinguished! Breakfast was nicely done and the honesty bar/lounge areas a bonus in a small establishment. Highly recommended."

"This is the second time that we have stayed at Jeakes' House and it was just as enjoyable as the last time. The owners Jenny and Richard do everything possible to make your stay a happy one. For us, they even made arrangements for my husband to use a bathroom ,after we had checked out, to shower after he had led a cycle ride on Romney Marsh Their honesty bar makes you feel as though you are at home, being able to help yourself to drinks and just making a note of what you have. We love this place and are going again in December. Highly recommended"

Charming upmarket B&B in ancient neighbourhood
"A charming small bed and breakfast establishment in an "olde worlde" location, halfway up the prettiest street in Rye.
Just echoing the comments made by previous reviewers, service very good, breakfast also of a high standard, tables a little cramped. The outline of the three houses linked together to make the hotel is clear, with a number of stairs up and down to be negotiated.
Decor and furnishings generally good, we stayed in Elizabeth Fry room, with a four poster bed, it was a little dark and will apparently be re-decorated in the winter of 2005-6.
The owners are visible and chat at breakfast time, and are helpful as guides to the area.
We were told they have a rolling refurbishment program - 3 rooms are renewed each winter."

Romantic, charming, lovely
"My husband and I stayed at Jeake's House during our 9 day stay in Southeast England using Rye as our base. We loved every thing about Jeake's House from it's location on a quiet cobbled stone street, relaxing parlors with a courtesy bar, to our room with a four poster bed, charming antique furnishings and lavish bathroom. Breakfast each morning was absolutely delicious and much anticipated! Jenny Hadfield is a warm gracious host who genuinely cares about her guests. We would highly recommend Jeake's House."

Beautiful Hotel... Amazing Service!
"The hotel at Jeakes is everything I had hoped for as a romantic getaway surprise for my wife. Every single thing about it was special. The hosts had that very unusual balance of always being there when you needed them but were not obviously seen any other time. The hotel was beautiful and my wife was thrilled with our room. The antique furnature and the decor was definately outstanding! The breakfast in the morning was so soothing with the music playing softly in the background. The perfect way to start the day! I would really recommend this to anyone."

Charming Bed and Breakfast on a quiet cobbled street..
"I have stayed at Jeakes House Hotel many times, each time a total joy to the senses. From their fine antiques and beautiful linens, to their bountiful fresh cooked breakfast and wonderful hospitality. It is such a romantic and restful treat for anyone. Rye itself is beautiful, quaint shops and lovely restaurants and architecture. Jeakes House shows how good a small hotel can be!"

style in rye
"We stayed for two nights along the cobbled street in the wonderful Rye with its antique shops. Jeakes is a B&B and is very beautiful and warm.
The breakfast room is wonderful and we were served with one of the best breakfasts. Thoroughly recommended and the prices were reasonable."

Charming and Romantic...
"What a special hotel this was! Jenny Hadfield the owner was the epitomy of graciousness and warmth. The hotel itself was charming with so many little touches that it is hard to list them all. Our room was amazing and comfortable with lovely linens and beautiful antique furnishings. Just what you would imagine a traditional English Bed and Breakfast to be. The breakfast in the morning was the best I have had in all of my travels through England with lots of little extras like homemade marmalade and jams served. My husband and I hated to leave our romantic love nest with its huge canopy bed."
