The Mermaid Inn has 31 unique rooms, each one is named after a person from the history of the Inn and Rye.  There are;

  • magnificent carved beds
  • a secret stairway concealed behind the bookcase in Dr Syn’s Bedchamber
  • fine oakwood panelling
  • Caen stone fireplaces and latticed windows.

The second storey rooms are particularly intriguing with curved timbers supporting the ceilings which rise to a point above them, while the dormer windows afford a unique view of the citadel of Rye and beyond.

The Mermaid Inn is a genuine example of Tudor architecture and construction, and with the Caen stone fireplaces and wattle and daub walls, is maintained for the experience of the many guests from the United Kingdom and from around the world who stay at The Mermaid Inn every year.

The Mermaid Inn is happy to welcome clean, well behaved pets.  In the interest of hygiene it is our policy that pets do not come into contact with bedding or upholstery by sleeping on beds or chairs.  Pet owners are requested to provide suitable bedding for their pet, and to take care with pet’s water and feed bowls.  There is a £5 charge per pet per night.  This is by prior arrangement.
