It's a great place.

Romantic and Clean

The property was very clean and unique.

The Inn was cozy and the staff were great, however the beds left much much to be desired. Ultimately the main idea of a hotel or Inn is that it’s a place to sleep while away from home. The mattresses were the worse I have ever slept on. They had to of bought the absolute cheapest ones they could find. Very disappointing and had a hard time sleeping. The sheets were just as bad. I’ve never been to prison but I imagine the sheets are probably on par. They felt like they were made from the cheapest material. I won’t stay there again for this reason which is really too bad because the rest the Inn, including the staff, was picture perfect.

Location

It was 77 degrees outside yet my room was blasting heat. I called to ask how to adjust it and Sue was helpful but she was surprised my room didn't have a/c since all the other rooms had it. (?) She did bring me a fan but it was very hot in the room while trying to get dressed, apply make up, etc. The drawers in the dresser are broken and hanging. The bed was hard. Most of the outlets didn't work. One of the lamps was broken. The phone on the table is a prop. Not even a dial tone. Why have it there? The only ice is apparently in the basement and Sue had to go down and get it, which was nice, but made me feel guilty about asking for more so I went without. Also, the toilet flushes so weakly that it makes you nervous. No strong pressure whatsoever. The picture of the room I booked was not a picture of the room I was given.

I love how it is so quiet I def will be going there again very convenient in the area that they are in and the staff is very polite

Very lovely home. Spacious room and bathroom. Super friendly staff. Comfy couch. Bed was extra extra firm and Wi-Fi wouldn't work in our room. If you are an early to bed person - the music downstairs was very loud until a little after 11pm. After that it was pretty quiet. We stayed after their murder mystery dinner theatre which was fun and the dinner was very good. Would recommend.

Very homey and very pleasant staff. I really enjoyed my stay.

This place was unique. It had a casino and live entertainment. It's been around for many years and is quaint and has lots of antiques. Very nice continental breakfast included.

I loved the little place to eat next door. Friendly bartender and front desk employee.

Nice breakfast, we loved the chocolate chip muffins... quaint old fashioned place

This Colonial style hotel is quaint. The staff and the accommodations are very good. There is a brand restaurant in the hotel. During the summer months there's a music program that was cancelled the night we stayed. The town of Richmond has loads of facilities and plenty of places to shop. This hotel is inland from the coast (~25 miles) and very close to a highway that leads to the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

It was a very cute place! The only thing I wasnt a fan of was the shower curtain touching me. But because of the kind of tub it was I understand. I would come back again.

Nice stay. Good Food. Friendly Staff. Will stay again.

There are two houses from the former Governors' and brothers. We were first in the "other" building but given maintenance issues with our room we were moved to the Governor's Suite in the main building. A very nice suite, although right on top of the music that goes until 10pm. Staff was fantastic ... very nice breakfast layout and dining room.

The price from orbitz was less then they tried to charge us. Not once but twice. Room was on third floor with water damaged ceiling in bathroom. Probably worst room in hotel. We will never stay there again or recommend it to anyone.
