My wife & I spent a weekend here & absolutely loved it; the room was spacious & bed so comfortable. Loved the mansion overlooking the city of Bethlehem. Bethlehem is charming & we had two terrific meals the evenings we were there. Hopefully will be back before too long!
We make an annual tradition of staying at Sayre. We stay in a different room each year because they all have their own special character. The included breakfast is top notch and the staff is very friendly. The view of the city is great and access to downtown and the casino is easy and affordable via taxi. Jansen Honberger
It's a beautiful house and our room was very spacious. My bed was exceptionally comfortable! We enjoyed the warm fireplace in the downstairs living room, and breakfast was prepared perfectly! I would highly recommend The Sayre Mansion Inn to anyone visiting the Bethlehem area. The location is also very convenient.
A great B&B located close to everything. Bethlehem, Pa is a beautiful historic sleepy town with all the modern conveniences. A great place to stay and unwind. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I would stay there again.
My wife and I found what we believed to be a wonderful bed and breakfast, Sayre Mansion Inn, located in Bethlehem, PA. The website has comments like "meticulously restored", "offers luxury and comfort", "beautifully restored room" and "picturesque grounds". Based on the website we thought we'd enjoy 2 romantic nights in the country gazing at the stars through the glass roof of the Conservatory room. We realize this home was built in the 1850's but we were quite disappointed once we arrived and settled in. The location and overall condition of the room was sub par at best and for $260 per night our expectations were much higher. The mansion sat on the corner of a major highway and very busy street, not the coutry side setting as depicted on the website. The room was decorated with period furniture but could have used a thorough cleaning and the electric fireplace did not work. The bathroom was spacious but lack luster and it had a shower stall was to small for the average 6' man. The floor tiles were patched in numerous areas due to water damage and the guest robes in the armoire were stained. We are acustomed to the Inn keeper/owner spending some time with the guests in the evening and at breakfast discussing the history of the home, the family that lived there and surrounding area. Altough the staff was pleasant we never encountered the owner. This facility was more like a motel with restaurant style dining. The breakfast lacked the unique recipes we usually experience at a bed and breakfast. The first night there was so loud from the traffic, police sirens, trains and people talking on the street that we didn't get much sleep. The stay was so disappointing that we chose to go home after one night. Unfortunately this is one location we will not recommend to our friends.
We were up for the inaugural event at the PPL center in Allentown. I would recommend staying at Sayre if you are attending something there. While it is not near the center, it is a convenient 15 minute drive. It also gives great access to down town Bethlehem. I am looking forward to returning to further explore the beautiful Lehigh Valley!
Be prepared for very thin walls. I was hoping that this establishment was on a bigger property further away from the town. I was able to hear the trains and cars throughout the stay. Nevertheless it was still a charming building and met my expectations. Bethlehem is a nice town with an old school feel. I can't comment on the breakfast because we opted to spend the morning relaxing in their super comfy beds. Overall experience I'd rate a 7 out of 10.
The room was very clean and comfortable. The bed was amazing--an extremely comfortable pillow top bed. We slept like logs. The next morning I thought we were having a simple continental breakfast, but it turned out to be a hot buffet breakfast. In addition, there were various juices, coffee, tea, pastries and fruit salad. So yummy! Everyone that worked there was very warm and courteous. Definitely would stay there again. Very close proximity to historic Bethlehem which is a real gem.
My wife and I spent a wonderful 12th anniversary weekend at The Sayre Mansion and it exceeded our expectations. Every aspect of our stay starting with the service, our room, and the breakfast were outstanding. And we had the wine package which was a nice treat to start our stay. The Sayre Mansion provided a wonderful backdrop for our romantic weekend. We will definitely return in the future.
The room was beautiful, and the breakfast was delicious. We were in the carriage house, which was bit difficult to drive in and out of, and it's right on the road, so there was a fair amount of traffic noise. In parts of the suite, the walls/floors are quite thin, so we could our hear the other guests. The person who showed us our room didn't explain anything about the room (e.g., how the internet, TV, air conditioner worked), so we had to figure it out ourselves.
The breakfast for each our visits has been delicious, bountiful and beautifully served whether buffet or upon ordering. The people who are employed by the Sayre Mansion are pleasant and helpful. The beds are cozy and clean. The bathroom amenities are top-notch. I ask myself upon the close of any stay in any given Inn or Bed and Breakfast if I've gotten my money's worth, as this is truly the bottom line (no pun intended!). The answer is yes and we will return regularly in the future!
We had a wonderful experience in February when we stayed at Sayre but this time we were disappointed. The parking lot was full when we returned from having dinner. Why?? No one was available for complaints. The room that we were in had an A/C that kicked on and off all night and it kept my wife awake. The mattress in the room was listed as a queen but in fact was a full . It was also the softest mattress we have ever been in and kept rolling into the middle. Not fun. Sadly, we will probably not return.
I have stayed at The Sayre Mansion Inn many times, both on business and for pleasure with my wife. It is always a wonderful ecperience. The Inn itself is beautiful, and the staff is superlative. Rooms are well furnished and meticulously clean. Free wifi is a bonus.Breakfast is always delicious, and the choices are excellent. There are many truly excellent restaurants nearby. I always look forward to my next visit
This is a little piece of tranquility in South Bethlehem. My friend grew up in South Bethlehem and always wanted to go into the home. I gave him an overnight there for his 61st birthday. The room was above our expectations. We had a nice leisurely breakfast and spent time on the front porch enjoying the architecture over coffee. We walked the grounds admiring the abundant flowers and flowering shrubs before leaving for the day. The staff was attentive and we felt welcomed. This truly is a gem!
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Sayre Mansion. The staff was friendly and attentive, our room was beautiful and clean, the property was meticulously maintained, and breakfast was delicious. We would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone traveling in the area. It's located right across the bridge from downtown Bethlehem. It is possible to walk into town, if you like longer walks, but I think most people would choose to drive. Our room was one of the least expensive, located on the third floor. It was very spacious and featured a lovely view, a very comfortable bed, and a sitting area with two chairs (very nice for watching a little TV in the evening). Our room was toward the front of the house, and we did note that the train that passes by several times a day can be heard. Considering the history of the house and its original owner, the proximity to the railroad makes perfect sense, but it is worth noting if that is something that would bother you. We definitely plan to visit again.
I was simply looking for a place to stay the weekend for a business trip that wouldn't kill my budget, but was a nice place to stay. I got way more than I bargained for at the Sayre Mansion Inn. The staff was eager and helpful, friendly beyond compare. The room was cozy and quiet. The surrounding grounds are beautiful and perfect for reading or catching up on emails. To top it all off the breakfast was probably the best I've had in months! My only regret is that I wasn't able to extend my meeting so that I could have spent more time there! I will be returning here in the very near future.
The staff and innkeepers were pleasant, and Lola the house dog was a real treat. The rooms are kept very clean, although there were a few stains on the blanket. The king-sized bed was great, and the mattress could not have been more soft or cushioned. The food was average, nothing to brag about, and I only wish they left out more pastries in the day. Overall it was a pleasant stay, and I would likely revisit sometime in the future
