“A hidden diamond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2011

I wasn't looking forward to writing this review because I always find it more fun to write scathing reviews than pleasant ones, by which measure tapping this out should have been torture, as the place is an absolute gem. Without question the best value hotel I have stayed in for a very long time. It's set in a beautiful old house on one of the main streets into Kennybunkport, which is a lovely place to spend a few days hanging out. The building is complete with original features - locks, radiators, windows etc, that give it a certain - nice - ambiance. There is something inherently pleasant about chunky old wooden floorboards and thick doors that have stood the test of time. Despite being old it was also newly painted in cool and calming colours, modern bathrooms and furniture which really suited it. The lady that runs it did everything she could to ensure we had a nice stay, and, what with travel being about meeting new people and learning, it was interesting to hear what she had to say and have a chat. She was also often accompanied by her entirely adorable daughter Zoe, 2, so this isn't some dusty old matriarchal guesthouse but a living family home. Special mention needs to be reserved for the breakfast, without question the best breakfast I had out of the 6 or so places I have recently stayed in in North America. We each had a homemade cheese and ham Souffle, a homemade cinnamon pastry creation, fruit salad, warm bread, and cereal. It was a level of service that few places provide, and none that I know of at such an affordable price. Great stuff.
