Our Story

Javed and Judith bring over 20 years of experience in providing the highest levels of hospitality in Rye, to bring you the most modern, feature-rich and environmentally-sustainable accommodation.

Magnolia House was an unused and nearly-derelict building when Javed purchased it in the summer of 2019.  The mission was to enlarge and completely modernise the building around the needs of modern-day travellers, with permanent sustainability being at the heart of what we do.

Javed, with a lot of help from local experts, re-built the structure with the goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions.


This was a one-off opportunity to design-in and where possible, future-proof the building in the face of inexorable climate change.


There’s more detail regarding the technologies and processes we use to maintain our Sustainability Goals on our Sustainability page.


It goes without saying we’re not “a corporate” and as such, you’ll find us to be warm, friendly, helpful and above all, human.
