Wentworth by the Sea, A Marriott Hotel & Spa

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was beautiful as was location. Hotel rooms were just OK. Was given a terrible room by elevators (hotel was clearly barely occupied so it's not like they didn't have other rooms). Was too tired to complain or ask to be relocated since we arrived late. One pull down shade was broken and didn't hang properly but even the working one did not block out all the bright lights shinning into hotel. Hotel needs to install drapes to pull over shades - very difficult to sleep in a room that was SO bright all night. Beds were comfortable and room was in decent condition overall. staff was pleasant and breakfast was nice.

We had a great view of the water and hotel was wonderful. Island has few nice quite spots scenic and serene. Best trip we did on east coast side.

The concierge was awesome - my parents were very lost and she was patient and knowledgable and helped them get there safely. The room was comfortable and had very nice views of the harbor. Everyone staff member I dealt with was fabulous, except for one bartender that was rude to me twice. I ordered a glass of wine at the bar (I had been there two nights in a row and spoke to him) and had to go get my wallet that was with my party on the veranda. He would not let me take the glass, he told me to "leave it on the bar" like I was going to steal it.

Definitely a sleepy lil town in the winter but I bet would be great in the summer. Portsmouth is a fun lil town nearby. Hotel was comfortable and restaurant great. Definitely doesn't seem like a Marriott. Was there for a short stay but the children running around till 10 pm was annoying due to the open indoor pool

Arrived and able to get in room early. Marriott advertised room rate was $699 and Orbitiz $239. Staff very amenable and room spacious. Only downside was room was over the restaurant exhaust and fan was quite noisy. Salt was good food and service! Pool and sauna was very relaxing. Our 3rd stay and we will return.

Lovely , perfectly maintained historic hotel. Lovely views of the bay, convenient to Portsmouth while staying in a quiet peaceful area. Pricey but worth it. Very helpful staff

We have stayed at the Wentworth 3 times now and will continue to go back. The hotel is unique with its restoration, very clean and service is excellent. The location, by the Ocean and the surrounding gardens, is outstanding

At $836 for two nights stay I would have expected a higher level of comfort/service. The first night, the hotels ventilation unit (I'm guessing) was making too much noise.It seemed like it was right outside our mindow. I was forced to turn on the room's climate control. They decide your comfort level. The control panel was not adjustable and was set at a permanent 68 degrees. We had a balcony outside our room which was MAYBE two feet wide and the view was not impressive. you could barely see water because the view was blocked by trees. The breakfast buffet oped at 6:30. We arrived at 6:50 and no one was there to greet us. At 7:30 we found some one to get our coffee. I had to serve myself orange juice after a search. The food was excellent. There was a wedding on Saturday afternoon and we couldn't find a spot to park, so I had to park in front of the hotel. Glad I wasn't towed. As far as the town of Portsmouth, It's a quaint little town with lots of little shops. There are some great seafood restaurants. I would highly recommend Jumpin' Jay's. About $100 tip included for two with app's. No drinks. Not much to see or do here. I would recommend the Isle of Shoals Steamship company for a cruise. Star island was nice. Overall, I would recommend driving a few miles further north into Maine.

Yes we needed a break, but not the classical resort or luxory hotel. The Wentworth fit the need for old world realaxation in a seaside location. The staff catered to our individual needs with the friendly help that was just what we needed. Our short stay left us refreshed. Thank you Wentworh by the Sea

We celebrated my husband's birthday. The hotel is beautiful, situated in a perfect place. The staff were very curtuous. I had asked for a king bed but they gave us 2 doubles! To make up for it, they gave us free breakfast buffet. Food was great too.

The hotel is beautiful. Our room had views of the bay. Loved the heated floors in the bathroom. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was modrately priced. Enjoyed having a drink in the bar before bed.

The Wentworth by the Sea had a beautiful setting with vistas of hills and ocean. Located in an area close to nature...and shopping(portsmouth nh). Our room was well situated, comfortable and clean. The breafast staff and buffet were excellent. A very relaxing respite.
