This hotel is absolutely stunning! I was only supposed to stay 2 nights - this turned into over a week because I was just SO impressed. Every detail was considered - the decore is just beautiful and the light grey walls with blue accents - the entire place feels like a Spa! Lexi, Anya and the entire team at Hotel Pippa epitomize that gorgeous nantucket hospitality - SO friendly - so helpful - just really beautiful people inside and out which also made for such a lovely stay. The sheets were super soft, showers strong, pillows so comfortable - even down to the body wash and shampoo provided - everything was luxury. There is always fresh cold water in your room and a lovely bar downstairs. The entire place feels new and fresh and just ..... very very special. The team made my stay in Nantucket once in a lifetime (although I am coming straight back next year). I was really impressed by the level of detail on EVERYTHING, the interior and the people (and I travel all over the world)

Rating should be 4.5+ Hotel Pippa is a gem of a find. Very pleasant, friendly and helpful staff. Well-appointed comfortably-sized room(s). Great linens. Clean and fresh bathroom, but small (-.5). Clean and inviting common areas. A nice bar/tea room. And a secret garden with a fire pit. What more to say! Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Hotel Pippa to enjoy a long weekend at the end of the summer. Our hotel experience began immediately after booking with an email from the hotel - they helped us book restaurant reservations, gave us recommendations, and provided travel tips. We arrived early and were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready to check in. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms on the third floor, which had a full size bed (we chose this smaller option primarily due to the high room rates during a holiday weekend). Although small, we thought the descriptions outlined during booking were accurate. The room was updated, modern and clean with luxurious linens and bath products (think matouk, sferra). They serviced the room daily, providing clean products and refilling water. There was a continental breakfast with coffee, juices, yogurt, mini pastries, etc. The front desk staff were extremely attentive - giving recommendations on island events, activities, and new restaurants. All hotel staff seemed genuinely interested in wanting us to enjoy our stay. They gave us chairs, towels (also matouk), and a cooler with ice to take with us to the beach. Nantucket is a special place, and so is Hotel Pippa.

We stayed here for a two-night romantic getaway and it was perfect! The beds were super comfortable, the decor was elegant, the restaurant turned out great food each time. We had an unexpected glitch in our travel plans, and the staff could not have been more helpful. I had always wanted to visit the place when it was called Vanessa Noel, but now that it is Hotel Pippa I am really glad I went. They are my first call next time I go back to Nantucket. The central location is key - being close enough to the shops but not overwhelmed by the crowds on the wharf.

I really wish this review had existed before I booked my stay at the beginning of the year. At this time the hotel had only been open for one summer and there weren't that many reviews to go by. A friend who lives on Nantucket had told me about this place and that it had recently been re-done and having a look on the website I figured it looked quaint and decided to give it a try. Big mistake. I travelled all around Cape Cod and stayed in Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and Provincetown, all were brilliant stays except for here sadly. The most notable reason being the size of the room, which was an absolutely tiny hobbit sized room that I actually laughed at (out of disbelief) when I fist walked in. Now what I want to really stress to anyone reading this, is firstly I don't like to complain or talk negatively about a hotel for trivial reasons and am very sceptical of trip advisor when reviews complain about small petty things. However, this was so bad that I would like to warn anyone who plans on booking this hotel in the future. The room was so small that I believe it to be falsely advertised and it simply cannot accommodate two people. It should be listed as single occupancy on their website and the rate should be reflective of this. Two people can barely move in this room and there was no space to even put our luggage. the doors hit the bed and the bathroom door could not fully open as the bed restricted this. The carpet under the bed was soggy and water stained when we arrived. Lovely luxury feeling a soggy carpet under your feet as you tip toe around the bed. Thanks Pippa, we loved that! We later realised why after showering and found the shower leaked in to the bedroom, despite having a high lip to contain it, the room is so small and the shower door so badly fitted that it means every time someone showers, water is all over the bathroom and bedroom floor in puddles. We contained it by laying towels down, again lovely luxury touch Pippa. Haven't seen that done elsewhere. Now I know this is Nantucket but this room was $500 per night. Paid in advance at the time of booking. An absolute disgrace is how I would sum it up. It felt like it had been designed by someone with no care for guests but rather by someone looking to turn a broom cupboard in to a bedroom and rinse its clientele for all they are worth. Well that strategy might backfire very badly as I do not know anyone who would be happy in this room, unless it was a solo traveller and the room rate was 65-70% less than what we paid. I think $150-$175 per night for this room would be acceptable (at a stretch) given the location. The only good aspect worth mentioning is the location. I felt really lied to by the website and actually burst in to tears after we had been shown our room and closed the doors. The initial laughter turned to tears as the realisation that this is where we would be staying for the next 2 nights really set in. Should a hotel charging this kind of money do this to its guests?! I have stayed all over the world both for business and pleasure, I have never ever stayed in any room so small and so badly designed. The minimalistic design that photographs well (don't be fooled like I was) for the benefit of instagram and online, will age very badly and tire quickly as the room is so badly designed it caused damage in the room that showed. As there is nowhere to put your luggage, we noticed scuff and scrape marks all around the walls as you could see the evidence of former guests who had struggled to navigate the room like us. You could hear EVERYTHING through the paper thin walls and doors. We resorted to whispering in the room and even grimacing holding in the pain without yelling out loud when bumping in to the corner of the bed and stubbing our toes on the bed corners which we both did several times. I have read other reviews saying this too and I can truly say it is no exaggeration. The room is so small we both left with bruises. Worst hotel experience I've had in the longest time. I complained to the front desk shortly after check-in and they offered to give us another room for the first night and then move us back for the next night. I declined the offer as there seemed little point and if anything I just wanted to get out by this point. My takeaway would be, the hotel really needs to correctly list the rooms and accurately show the size on their website. They don't because they know they won't get the bookings if they do. Also breakfast was the worst of any of my stays in Cape Cod and the Islands. We ended up going to Island Kitchen for breakfast which is exceptional and was the best breakfast of our entire stay, so all was not lost. We stayed in Room 3, which front desk agreed was probably the worst (lucky us) and had received numerous complaints. Not at all surprised to hear that. Should of been refunded or at least partially refunded but didn't kick up enough fuss and just wanted to get out. Fortunately our next hotel in Provincetown was amazing and helped us get over such a bad experience. Shame on you Pippa, I'd love to meet the owner, we were told it was their first hotel venture. It shows!

This sweet and charming hotel made my stay in Nantucket super special. Located just up the street from the heart of town, across the street from a super impressive art Gallery (Coe&Co.) and next to a delicious bakery (Born&Bread), Hotel Pippa was the perfect place to perch for a few days. I loved Hotel Pippa's boutique feel and quaint queen room with Italian Davines amenities, crisp cotton sheets and super comfortable bed and pillows. I slept so well, I especially enjoyed nightcaps of marmalade manhattans in the comfortable courtyard taking it all in and just pausing at how sweet this place was. I advanced planned with LeighAnne/Lexy and Corey/Daniel helped me add on adventures once I was there. Ieva gave me insight to hideaway beaches and te team approved of my off the beaten track food truck finds and sunset treasure beaches. I wouldn't stay anywhere else, Hotel Pippa felt warm and cozy all around. I was in my happy, happy place. I highly recommend Hotel Pippa for your next stay in Nantucket and maybe I'll see you there because I won't be staying anywhere else!

We stayed at Hotel Pippa for the film festival and were very pleased with the hotel. It is new, very clean. The rooms are a little small, but the staff was so helpful and friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. They had a happy hour in the evening, and breakfast in the morning. The hotel is centrally located, so we walked to all of the film festival events and restaurants. We would stay there again for our next trip.

This hotel is an old renovated house. Our classic queen room was absolutely tiny. We basically stubbed our toes on the bed everytime we got up - about a foot of floor around a queen bed. There's nowhere to hang your clothes. A bunch of young kids run the place- seems like they're playing house. No ice unless you ask and wait five minutes...and it all seems awkward. We have stayed at several hotels in downtown Nantucket. This was extremely expensive - you basically get a tiny room with a bed for 550 a night. Not going back!

Hotel Pippa was a modern boutique hotel located in downtown Nantucket. Many of the best shopping and eating spots were literally right around the corner or a very short walk. they have a continental breakfast and coffee out in the morning and it was pleasant to sit in their small courtyard. We booked Room 1 which was VERY comfortable for my wife and I. We loved the cross breeze we got when we opened the windows in the morning. I gotta give a special thanks to Leighanne, the hotel manager for being so accommodating and helpful. She found a great fishing guide last minute, Richie from Secret Spot, who took us surf fishing from Eel Point where my buddy and I caught bluefish. The hotel is literally around the corner where you pick up a shuttle to go to Cisco Brewery. We'll be back for sure.

This hotel is cuddled up right in the center of downtown Nantucket. The staff was so incredibly friendly and helpful. They made sure we were taken care of. I asked for an upgrade upon arrival and they were happy to accommodate us. They gave us so many great recommendations on places to go, we had such a nice trip. Also, I always love when breakfast is included in a hotel stay. Although it was nothing crazy, it was nice to grab a yogurt and some granola or a muffin before heading out for the day. The rooms were cozy and comfortable and the property is impeccably clean. I would highly recommend to anyone.
