    New England old style, comfortable and cozy. Great high tea and breakfeast.

    It was conveniently located and had parking.

    The air conditioner was so loud I had to turn it off in order to sleep.

    I liked our room - beautifully decorated. Air Conditioning worked well, bathroom was well appointed. I loved the back deck w/ tables for sipping a glass of wine or having breakfast in good weather.

    A bit noisy one morning at 5:15 a.m. in the hallway outside my room (adjacent to the dining area/check-in).

    A beautiful inn with excellent staff. Very personal, almost home feeling. Great breakfasts every morning and afternoon teas are things to enjoy. I liked the location very close to Porter square T station and hence an excellent access to Harvard, MIT and Boston downtown. The neighborhood was rather calm although numerous shops, restaurants, cafes etc. can be found around.

    The room might be a bit small for someone, not an issue for me though. The airconditioning was too loud to sleep while turned on.

    Nice and quiet Place

    The fact that they didn t accept a late check out

    Comfort, location, quiet, calm, aesthetically pleasing. Relaxing. Extremely convenient.

    Nothing. I liked everything.

    The tea and cookies (wonderful chocolate chip, am still dreaming about them) in the afternoon, and the excellent breakfast. The wonderful decor. The helpful staff.

    The cleaning left a bit to be desired--my tub wasn't cleaned properly on at least one of the four days I was there.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Very charming decor in keeping with a historic house.

    Limited parking, though we were lucky enough to have a space, and were able to request one in advance.

  • Single
    8.2

    It was a great location for my needs, lovely friendly staff, cosy, clean and lovely atmosphere

    for the time of year my room was cold...and for a tourist not knowing his way around the had know local map to offer me, and the staff I spoke to was not able to help me find what I was looking for although she was friendly and polite...

  • Single
    6.2

    my room was quiet. Open fire at breakfast

    they took my cheque card for an imprint but deducted the full amount for a five day stay without telling me first. The manger wrote rather aggresively in response to my comments on this to the desk staff. The room heaters are very noisy indeed, and there didnt appear to be central heating apart from these heaters.

  • Couple
    9.6

    Excellent breakfast; complimentary afternoon tea/coffee and cookies were a real treat. Friendly and helpful staff. Free WiFi; Room was very comfortable.

    More of a comment: the Inn is furnished in keeping with its historic status, travelers used to the excessive features of modern hotels be aware!

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The staff was very friendly and the breakfasts were outstanding.

    The street directly outside the Inn was being worked on and was very noisy early in the morning. I think guests should have been warned of this work in advance which had been going on for some weeks.

  • Single

    Location, hotel decoration, staff friendliness

    The room number 1 is very noisy, I couldn't sleep the first night but they change me room for the rest of my stay and there were no problem after that.

  • Single
    9.0

    Very welcoming and had a lot of charm. I ended up staying in 2 rooms, and each had its own character.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    It's a very nice place, far from the US hotel/motel standard room. It's cosy, comfortable and the people there, are very nice.
