The owners clearly care about their property. It is well maintained with nice touches of flowers. The rooms exceeded my expectations; the property appears to have had a recent makeover. We recommend this Inn if you need a place to stay in Fairfield/Fairfield Beach!
We stayed at The Inn at Fairfield Beach for a wedding this October -- a large number of the bridal party also stayed at the Inn along with us. It was such a delight to open the door to our room -- the room was absolutely wonderful; clean, bright and fresh. The place was spotless and it was nice and homey with a beach vibe. Everything was great, including the staff, and the complementary muffins in the fridge were delicious! I would most certainly recommend this hotel.
This B&B is very centrally located and in the most wonderful neighborhood of old victorian homes. We enjoyed our stay very much and Elizabeth and her staff were so nice. The breakfast buffet was delicious and we loved the homemade jam. We stayed 2 nights here and really got to see New Haven history. Her parlour is warm and inviting and the rooms large and comfortable. I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast. Don and Vickie B.
Attended a wedding at Fairfield Beach. Reserved room 35 a 2 bedroom suite for two nights (Friday & Saturday). The Suite was well appointed & spotless. The staff accommodating & very friendly. I would not hesitate to stay at the Inn again.
We stayed in the Eleanor Dowe suite. It was a fun place to stay - a nice sitting room and two bedrooms. I myself wish it had a bathtub, and the air conditioner in one of the bedrooms was a bit noisy. But these are very small annoyances - on the whole it was quite delightful!!! Breakfast lowkey compared to some B&B's I've stayed at, but adequate and quite delicious (great croissants). Would definitely recommend.
First of all, I spent and extra 50 bucks a day because in the description of the room listed online, it implied it had a balcony overlooking the beach. This hotel is not on the beach, just very close to it. The balcony had a view of a neighbor's driveway. I let the balcony view not get to me when I saw how cute the rest of the room was. That was until I actually started using the room and kept getting sugar packets stuck to the bottom of my feet, because I guess they didn't find it necessary to pick those up since the last person that had stayed there. There was also quite a bit of hair in the tub. I would have said something if the staff stayed any longer than 7pm. Again, I let it go. When it came time to go to sleep, not only was there a party in a room close to mine, and no staff to call---but there is an extremely noisy bar across the street. I thought it was odd for a thursday night to have so much commotion at a "bed and breakfast" but I thought the next night would be better. It wasn't, this time there were police with megaphones trying to break up all the commotion that had leaked onto the street. I'm a 29 year old, I'm totally down with having a good time, but this was absurd. If you're trying to have a weekend of cheap partying, I guess this is the place for you. I actually was trying to accomplish some work, while hoping for a quiet tranquil place to stay. I would not stay at this place again. I feel like it was a total rip off.
Much of this hotel felt to me and my daughter like a stopover in the past, because the building and decor remain largely what they must have been a century ago. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We did not dine in the hotel, only ate the modest buffet breakfasts.
Was in the celestial suite on 3rd floor with balcony. 100 feet away from the sound. Less than a mile away from the town of fairfield. Nice beach accommodations and service was great.
The Inn was charming, the innkeeper considerate, the parking easy, the location terrific. The nice, hot, homemade breakfast with consideration for special diets and some really good coffee to top it off was the perfect way to start each day.. much better than those continental breakfasts many hotels serve. The down comforter was too hot for us, so we peeled it off... but the kind staff noticed, and quietly replaced it with a cotton quilt for the second night. This is service, folks. So many lovely touches...including a piano in the comfy living room, should you wish to play one, a little kitchenette with a full fridge for guests to use, lovely recorded music, nice conversations with fellow travelers and host. I hope we can stay there again!
This was the first bed and breakfast my girlfriend and I ever stayed in and it will be hard to top this cozy and comfortable inn. Victoria, the innkeeper, was great and very welcoming, never overbearing. She knew that we didn't have a car so she wrote us up an itinerary with places to visit, where to eat, where to ride bikes etc and gave us many tips to enjoy our stay in Madison. Our room and the house were beautifully immaculately furnished. We had quiet relaxing nights after kayaking or biking and exploring the beach and nature trails. Vicotiria even went the extra mile to cook us vegetarian meals (such as outstanding blueberry pancakes, fruit, etc) as well as providing all guests with delicious baked goods throughout the day. I loved her crumb cake and all her muffins! I would highly recommend this inn to all!
We stayed here for one night on our way back to New York City. We were very sorry that we had not planned more days at this B&B. We loved our short stay here and will return on our next trip in this area. From the hospitality to the surroundings, this place is an A plus.
I found the Quinnipiack Club online while looking at hotels around New Haven. The room I found at the Club was much cheaper and better looking than the hotels I was seeing in my price range. Staff was friendly, room was clean, and convenient location.
My daughter and I stayed here the night before she moved into her freshman dorm at Yale. It is not far from the campus and on the Yale shuttle line. We stayed in the Eleanor Dow suite which you could live in. It was comfortable and cozy. Elizabeth was helpful with suggestions on location and places for dinner. Breakfast was fresh and quite good. We enjoyed our stay here and as I return to the Yale campus over the next 4 years I plan to stay here every time I visit.
We were so glad to have discovered the Inn at Fairfield Beach! We stayed in the Harborside Suite and it was truly great. Thanks for everything, from welcome, to staff, to room to beach, everything. We'll be back! Family from Bordeaux, France
Friends were getting married last weekend and the Bride lost her space to get ready prior to the wedding. As I was staying in the Madison room which is quite specious I asked Victoria the inn keeper if she would mind. The Bride, and her close relatives if they could use my room. Victoria said of course, "let's help the Bride!" The room is very quaint so the photos of the Bride getting ready will I'm sure be beautiful. It was a lovey stay. I was too busy so I didn't have the chance to try the breakfast but as soon as I arrived they offered wine and cheeses which was a God sent after the 4.5 hours of traffic from Manhattan.
We loved our room, it was spacious. Fabulous welcome basket and muffins daily. Beach access was perfect! Nice large parking lot for rental car. Bathroom was a little small but great stay overall. Exceeded my expectations! Will definitely go back again.
We stayed here 3 nights while visiting some friends just up the street. Room was very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. They left a basket of complimentary snacks on the table and muffins and juice in the fridge. That was just perfect for us. Also, it is a very easy walk to the beach from the Inn. We definately plan to stay there again next year.
The Q Club in New Haven is exactly what I need for my occasional visits to New Haven and my trips to New York. (I can leave my car with them for a modest fee and take a cab to the train station.) The rooms are great, service excellent, food good. Great value.
