Chatham Bars Inn

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Have always wanted to stay @ CBI and it was worth every penny! Meals on site were top notch. Excellent service, especially Concierge and Bellman staff. Spa service was very relaxing and high quality. Captain Jack was outstanding as Captain of an afternoon Seal cruise (we saw a bunch of them). Would absolutely go back!

Experience was okay. I was expecting the room to be cleaner for the price.

Great experience, friendly helpful staff, always trying to make your stay more pleasant.

"House" room overlooked airconditioning and heating ducts

The hotel was wonderful, clean, and very well taken care of. The staff was great and the food was not overly expensive. Also, the resort is within walking distance to Main St. and close to all shops. Beaufitul place to stay!

Even in the middle of a blizzard, this hotel offers every comfort. Staff service was exceptional, even chauffering us to town or shuttling us to the main house for meals during the snow and wind. It was wonderful! The room was beautiful and clean, but it needed a more comfortable easy chair with a footrest! And the other two game-table chairs were wooden and nice, but they needed cushions. In the snow, in the cottage with nowhere to go, there was no comfortable seating in the room. That can be easily fixed. Other than that, it was a delightful experience and I would definitely go again! Cape Cod is a wonderful place to visit, any time of year!

Overall great except for weather where it rain for the entire 4 days of our stay so made taking advantage of some of the amenities very difficult.

A beautiful property with a view of the sea, Chatham Bars Inn is a slice of times gone by. Not ostentatious, CBI makes its mark with very friendly services and amenities not found elsewhere. On our first night, we were awakened by an electronic alarm at 3 am. We thought it was something of ours but a half hour search proved fruitless. We phoned the desk and a maintenance man came and shut off the alarm, which was sprinkler related. We were treated the next day to a lovely breakfast in the elegant dining room and we moved to a different room in another cottage. The concierge is a wealth of local information. We enjoyed visiting the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, watching whales offshore from Race Point in Provincetown, and taking a long beach walk near the Chatham Light.

Great location. Perfect for golfers and females who love spa. The weather wasn't bad for February. The place is pricey but we stayed within our budget. The room was perfect for a couple. We tried their in room service and the tavern; the food was great. The staff was wonderfull.

We loved this property. The location was absolutely gorgeous on the ocean. Views are incredible. The pool is excellent and beach wonderful. Free boat to a stunning deserted island was one of our favorite experiences of our trip to Cape Cod. Only issue was the room was pretty small for 4. Also, the lobster boating trip was a rip off at 40$ per person. We didn't see any lobsters! We ate at their tavern restaurant and found the food to be mediocre but very expensive. There are so many awesome restaurants in Catham just a few minutes away. We will return to this special hotel.

Once at this hotel just park the car and relax. The location and view from our room Blue Mist was perfect. The concierge was terrific with making suggestions during our stay. Bridge Tournament was there and had bumped our dinner reservations but they upgraded our room instead. Very nice - friendly staff. Service and food in the Tavern were slow. In fact it took five minutes for someone to acknowledge us twice! The room was decorated Cape like but not too Nautical which was a plus. Understated elegance. Nature walk with Eric was great. South lounge a nice place to people watch and read. The gas fireplace in room was terrific in the evening. Would love to go back in the summer to enjoy the pool. It looked wonderful. Food in the Tavern was average but not great for the cost. Have heard the Sunday brunch is great -- but once again Bridge Tournament going on. Nice outdoor seating area outside our room which was wonderful. Lots of seating located indoor and out. Loved the Village of Chatham it had everything you needed from lovely shopping to restaurants and entertainment. Can not wait to go back!

This was our second stay at the Chatham Bars Inn. First time we stayed in one of the cottages. This time we were in the main hotel. Both were really nice in their own way. Really a top-notch hotel and dinner in the main dining room was fabulous--delicious and presented beautifully.

great price for a great spot

the hotel was wonderful and our room was in one of the cottages on the premises. the rooms are decorated in cape/beach fashion and pretty spacious. it's a bit of a walk (and quiet a few stairs) to get to the beach, so if you don't mind the walk (and we didn't) it's well worth it. the hotel runs a free boat ride to a near by sandbar/island - if your looking for a little more privacy - it's a wonderful place to spend the day with your feet buried in the sand while you watch the seals sun themselves. the staff was friendly, but not so helpful. parking is also pretty limited on premises. the big downside - make sure to ask if there is a wedding going on the week/weekend you plan to be there. they allow weddings to rent out the dinning rooms and most of the hotel common space, which really limits the options for the non-wedding guests.

We got a great rate on a room...well, there was a reason. Our room was pretty far from the beach, next to a utility/staff room with lots of traffic early in the morning (aka no sleeping in). We stayed here on our babymoon hoping for a relaxing getaway which was quiet and peaceful...basically with this room you were on the main floor next to a golf course and with lots of people walking by..no napping with the windows open, etc. The spa was nice, the one restaurant in the hotel we ate in was way just okay. The resort is a short distance from Chatham which has lots of fantastic restaurants. The veranda on the front of the hotel at sunset or after dinner was wonderful. This is a huge resort which almost had a "compound feel" to it....Overall a nice place but not worth it unless you have a ocean side room.

The Chatham Bars Inn is a luxury resort with a beautiful view of the ocean. The winter is not a busy time but place was far from empty. The wonderful front desk woman who checked us in very generously upgraded our room to a cottage with a view. For four people it was spacious and comfortable and pretty. There was a bedroom with two queen beds, a well appointed bathroom with plenty of towels, a separate vanity and second sink with an expresso maker and robes for each of us. We had one lunch in the tavern, tea in their large open great room, and had a huge brunch in the dining room. The dining room looks over the water and the hostess put us at a table that had a view. The staff was very down to earth and helpful. We love the cape during the winter and we would return again.

It was very spacious and welcoming. There were window seats that looked out over the beach, a private deck with tables and chairs looking out over the ocean and fishing boats. This was all unexpected and wonderful. The bathroom separate from the vanity area is always a plus. In addition the comfortable chairs, flat screen tv, refrigerator, and two queen size beds were all as had been described. I thought there was going to be a fireplace, however, the room was so wonderful I did not care. The dining, although expensive, was exceptional. The staff catered to us and I if I decide to go back to the Cape, I would definitely stay here again.

Most beautiful spot in the most beautiful town on the Cape. We went off-season (October) and didn't really experience it full-force. There were however three weddings taking place the weekend we were there, which gummed up the works somewhat and closed off some of the dining facilities for other guests. Staff was really friendly and helpful, but housekeeping, for example, seemed somewhat overwhelmed. Fabulous facilities, recently redone but NOT in a spare no expense style, which is what it deserves. Food was very, very good, and room service was prompt. Spend the extra to book a view room, ideally with a second floor deck, or you'll be kicking yourself and wishing you did. Avoid first floor rooms in the cottages that overlook parking (and parking noises,) or are adjacent to stairs.
