The Mermaid Inn - originally built around 1156 - is situated, rather aptly, on Mermaid Street in Rye. If its walls had ears, they'd have been privy to conversations among Catholic priests on the run from the Reformation, smugglers planning their next shady move and Canadian officers talking strategy during the Second World War. Previous visitors include Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother and Prince Edward.
The unique and historic interiors extend all the way to the guest bedrooms, where low beamed ceilings, latticed lead windows and antique beds await - opt for a Four Poster room for an experience truly reminiscent of the hotel's roots. The hotel has scored a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for all its charms.

The Mermaid Inn's restaurant is the proud holder of two AA Rosettes and offers British and European cuisine, using the best of the local area's ingredients. Medieval artwork by the Slade School of Art adorns the walls, which are covered in linen-fold wooden panelling. There's also a lounge bar on hand for drinks. The infamous Hawkhurst Gang of Smugglers once frequented this historic spot, smoking their pipes with their pistols leisurely laid on the table.
Rye is a picturesque town located in the East Sussex countryside. It was described by the Victorian poet, Coventry Patmore, as "a little bit of the old world living on in pleasant ignorance of the new" and we're not in mind to argue. It's a truly charming place, with cobbled streets and ancient buildings, all set near the East Sussex coast. The hotel is just a five-minute walk from the station, with trains going from St Pancras International, London Waterloo-East and London Victoria, all with just one change.
