The staff could not have been more welcoming and professional! The room was clean and tastefully decorated. The bath products were luxurious! Robes were comfortable. Complementary breakfast was elegant and delicious! The common rooms were extremely comfortable and it was nice to have the daily newspapers. Just two blocks from downtown, which is certainly walking distance, but far enough away...

Very nice quiet room. The staff friendly and helpful. The newly remodeled bathrooms are first rate. Many choices for the included breakfast and free on site parking a plus. Less than a 10 minute walk to Prescott Park or Market Square. Plenty of space to enjoy in the public areas downstairs.

Can say enough great things about the staff! We were greeted by Taylor, Josiah, and Joanna. They were all very friendly and accommodating. Joanna even played with my 16month old daughter as she ran around the lobby! While i would not recommend bringing small children to the area, Josh Labbe's and his team made us feel special for do just...

Very friendly staff. Clean hotel and room. Room also spacious and quiet. Reasonably priced. Wanted to stay longer. Breakfast included and good. No bar or restaurant but restaurants, etc all very close by - a short walk. Car park. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to family and friends and would definitely book again.

Stayed the night for our anniversary. It was perfect: easy to find, plenty of parking, friendly staff, clean & classy rooms that were vintage with modern twist. Big TV, lots of elbow room, walking distance to downtown area. Could ask for more, and it was one of the cheapest rooms available. Will go back here every me we visit Portsmouth.

What a great place to stay. Great parking off street was the first nice thing we noticed. The Hotel itself has a great vibe going on. Victorian in its bones but very classical and modern touches. The staff was so friendly. The kitchen area well stocked at all times. I was able to get goldfish for a late night snack...

Our group of 3 couples staying at this hotel for the last night of a New England tour. The hotel is located perfectly to walk to all the local attractions. It is housed in a historic home but has a very modern and upscale interior. The rooms are large and extremely well appointed (even an iPad). The breakfast area was...

My wife and I were looking for a relaxing getaway for a couple of days and found a touch of paradise in the city! This hotel has the charm of a b&b and that rare feature not always found anymore-customer service! Friendly, accomodating, relaxed staff willing to really care about our stay. We will be coming back again and are...
