The downstairs apartment is fine with a recently refurbished living area, but the bedroom and bathroom especially could do with further work as they are dated, albeit could not fault the cleanliness. The hallway/entrance was also quite dingy and in need of modernisation. There was a major issue with our stay which happened on the last night just before checkout. All water, cold and hot, stopped working in the apartment whilst I was in the shower covered in soap with no way to rinse. We could not clean our teeth or make a cup of tea before checkout either. I spent a very uncomfortable day soapily dried off. I reported the issue to the owner immediately who said the event was beyond his control, he simply offered to take my keys (it was just before checkout). I later complained to the owners again by email - they repeated that events were beyond their control and that I had denied access to the apartment diagnose the fault (I had not). I understand sometimes issues happen but looking back on the reviews on our return I found several others talking about issues with the plumbing so clearly the owners do know there is a problem with the water supply and took literally zero responsibility for the problem. This attitude is what I take major exception with. They were unwilling to offer any kind of refund at all (I asked for half the last nights' stay back, but would have settled even for a token amount). Rye has plenty of places much nicer to stay at the rate we paid, and combined with the disingenuous service we received I recommend you don't stay here.

Thank you for your review. Our recollection of the issue you had, in your bathroom just before check out, is quite different from how you have described it here. Reviews are very important to any business and honest and well intended feedback is something we value highly. I hope others see through this and read our previous glowing reviews. Sorry that you were not satisfied. We are a small family run business and we sincerely hope you find accommodation which meets your expectations in the future.

Excellent accommodation, comfortable, clean, and each room has been well thought out. We stayed for three nights and have already booked a return visit. The welcome try of goodies for us and the dog was was most welcome and there was ample dog walking opportunities in the grounds. We were only a short car ride from Rye and Camber Sands and other local locations worth a visit.

What a beautiful place to stay! The peace and tranquility were amazing, the hosts friendly and the surrounding field walk and valley view lovely. We really appreciated the Welcome tray and pillow gift, a extra special touch. We’ll definitely be back!

This is the third time we have stayed at Humphries Cross apartments. We chose to stay at the Retreat and we were not disappointed. Lovely welcome back from the hosts, great welcome basket and fresh flowers in the apartment. The accommodation was tastefully decorated Warm and cosy, very clean with all the amenities required, home from home. Great location a few minutes drive from the centre of the historic town of Rye East Sussex. Only a few miles away from a great vineyard and easy access to explore East Sussex and Kent. Shame we could not stay longer ! Would highly recommend this property.

I would love to say thank you to Lucy for a most welcoming stay at your lovely apartment. Lucy and Stuart took the time to explain where exciting photography locations around the area, helped with the equipment I brought and went far above and beyond the normal apartment hosts. The apartment itself was so cosy and relaxing I could of stayed there another week! The grounds are amazing beautiful views over the valley and Rye being on your doorstep what better place to unwind.
