  • "We found the property to be well appointed and very comfortable, the welcome pack and bottle of bubbles was much appreciated."

    Regrettably on our arrival although kitchen, bathroom and linens were spotlessly clean, we did find two empty yogurt pots and some screwed up paper under the armchair, a ladies bra down the side of the bed between the bed and bedside chest of drawers, it was quite dusty and had obviously been there some time. The sink in the bathroom was very slow draining so probably needs a clean out. Other than cobwebs on the bedroom ceiling and the decking everything else was fine. We would quite happily re-visit 3 Tidal, it is an ideal situation with just a few minutes walk into Rye.

  • "It is a lovely comfortable property with a great view of the tidal river."

    The welcome pack was very much appreciated, as was the Prosecco in the fridge. It is in a very quiet area and easy walking distance to Ryes shops and cafes. Only one small problem, the hand basin in the bathroom is not draining properly.

  • "Lovely south facing flat overlooking the estuary."

    Great location to walk into Rye and not far from Rye Harbour nature reserve and Camber sands. Very comfortable flat and loved the welcome packs with Bubbly. Will be coming here again soon hopefully.

    Cannot praise it enough,the accommodation was absolutely brilliant, the welcome present of the bottle of Prosseco and biscuits very nice touch, it was very close to the town and local amenities , shame about the fuel situation it curbed a lot of what we had planned but that was beyond our control, lovely accommodation lovely location lovely old historical town would thoroughly recommend 10 out of 1010

  • "A Huge road hump and entrance to the actual property after negotiating the five steps mentioned there was also a big step into the property difficult for persons of restricted mobility."

    The Bed and linen were both clean and comfortable. The tide was out for most of our stay so only a mud view of the estuary Thank

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment."

    It was convenient for town and in a lovely setting. There was a welcome pack which was appreciated and the overall impression was of owners who cared about the experience they were giving you. It was comfortable and clean which made us feel very relaxed.

  • "A very well equipped and maintained apartment with all the home comforts."

    Quality furniture, fixtures & fittings made for an enjoyable week's self catering stay. Extras such as binoculars to observe the sea-birds and underfloor bathroom heating added to the quality feel. Everything was spotlessly clean. Location was perfect for exploring Rye on foot and other places such as Camber Sands, Dungeness & Hastings a short drive away. Only complaint - the arrival instructions (and satnav) tell you to access the property via the very narrow Shipyard Lane which was only just possible with our small car. We found that continuing another 100m to St Margaret's Terrace gave better access for all traffic to Rock Channel Quay.

  • "The apartment was comfortable, clean and very well presented."

    The designated car space was worth its weight in gold. We enjoyed watching the birds on the tidal river from the comfort of the lounge in the evenings. Although the apartment was in a very peaceful location it was within walking distance of Rye and it's many and varied pubs, shops and restaurants. We both enjoyed our stay in 3 Tidal and would confidently recommend it to anyone.

  • "This apartment was just as described."

    A very pretty location on the river. The only thing I would mention is that the road leading to the apartment is in a poor condition, anyone with walking disability may find this an issue if they wish to walk into the town. This apartment is small but we found it met all our requirements the only thing that would improve it was a washing machine. We had beautiful weather and thoroughly enjoyed our week.

  • "The furnishings and appliances were of the top quality and ease needed was in the apartment."

    However Sykes directions on how to get to the apartment from Rye were taking us down a narrow unmade road. Do not send guests down Ship Yard Lane when there is a better route to take.

  • "Very well appointed indeed."

    Tremendously thoughtful little touches. Very quiet and with a lovely sunny view and little balcony . Excellent location and an easy walk into Rye centre. Thoroughly recommend this top quality place. No serious negatives but the 17:00 key collect time may be a little late after the hour change as it's just a bit tricky to find in the dark. Very enjoyable break.

  • "I feel that we lost a whole day of our holiday by not being able to access the property until 5 pm and having to get out by 9 am."

    It DOES NOT take 8 hours to clean a 1 bedroom property that comprises 3 small rooms. Unlikely to use Sykes again due to this.

    Reviewed by JoyceOct 2020

  • "The change of arrival and departure times is unwelcome."

    5 pm is very late to arrive and more difficult to time travelling. 9 am departure is frustrating, especially as you are requiring more actions to be taken before departure. 9 am also coincides with peak travel times - 10 am is much easier. It certainly does not take 8 hours to thoroughly clean a one bedroom apartment.

    Comfortable terrace. Appreciated Smart TV, dishwasher, shower. Heavy winter 13.5 tog duvet unsuitable for summer. 'Travelodge' style 'welcome pack' and rationed kitchen towel, lack of tea towels unnecessarily mean.

    Very cosy and well placed near centre of town. Ideal for a couple as a base for this area of the coast and feels fairly private, facing the river channel and field beyond. Great kitchen facilities and lovely towels. Better than expected and would happily return.

About the location


Camber 5 miles; Hastings 12 miles; Battle 16 miles.

Rye is a 13th century cinque port in East Sussex, host to the River Rother, Romney Marshes and a history dating back before the Norman Conquest. A cobbled town offering an excellent array of unusual shops, antique emporiums, galleries selling local artist paintings and pottery, Rye also has a delightful range of tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and historic inns. There is also a weekly general market on Thursdays, as well as a farmers’ market every Wednesday morning. The town played host to BBC film crews for nine weeks in the summer of 2014, while filming of the TV series Mapp and Lucia took place, which has now been made into a DVD. All coastal scenes were filmed in nearby Camber Sands and bits of filming also took place in Hastings and the Tenterden Town railway station. Walkers and birdwatchers can enjoy a footpath leading across the marshes to Camber Castle built by Henry VIII. Local attractions include miniature or full-size steam train rides, local vineyards, stately homes, castles, gardens and beaches, including the beautiful nearby Camber Sands. Artists and photographers will especially enjoy the scenery; big skies, winding roads, and picturesque villages with ancient inns and tea shops. A truly relaxing and wonderful holiday destination.
