Nice place to stay. I had the Ward room. A little different with the shared bathroom downstairs and shower in the basement next to the washer and dryer. Neighborhood is a little odd. Hosts were great and food options were more than I needed. Room was nice and clean. Could have used some blinds on the upper windows if you like a dark room. Very good Vietnamese restaurant within walking distance. I am going to make a reservation for next year when I am back in town.

A beautiful Inn - with lovely rooms - the most comfortable beds I've ever found in any inns or hotels and the best breakfasts in any b and b I've ever been in.

My husband and I had a delightful stay at the Wellington BB. The room was cozy, quaint, and very comfortable. Wendy and Ray were fabulous hosts! They provided an incredible breakfast, and an awesome tip for the best Italian food in Syracuse! Looking forward to returning!

The Wellington was very clean and the owners warm, friendly, and eager to please--very hospitable. Wendy offered a wide variety of non-gormet breakfast choices. Although the house itself was architecturally pleasing and possessed a great deal of character, its condition and appointments were somewhat moth-eaten. Important, if environment matters. For example, antiques as advertised could be better described as early attic, and many were in need of repair. Shag carpets were not in keeping with the style of the house. All that being said, the Wellington was acceptable enough, but I would not stay there again. The tipping point was its surrounding neighborhood, which was in serious, serious decline, lending a unsafe air. In better conditions, I would not bulk at the room rate, but in view of the overall quality of the facility, I would have expected to pay less.

We stayed at the Wellington for our trip to New York and it greatly exceeded our expectations. Breakfast was excellent. Ray and Wendy were excellent hosts, always making sure our needs were satisfied and made it really feel like home. Thank you so much for the great experience. - The Mai family from PA.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the Wellington. The large room met every need, including reading lamps and an adjacent porch. Our so-called continental breakfast was surprisingly sumptuous and very delicious. Best of all was Wendy, our hostess, who was full of useful information about the city and sound advice about restaurants.

Stayed at this B&B due to proximity to downtown and particularly the north end near St. Joseph's Hospital. Room was large and comfy and quiet. Proprietors were friendly and made a great breakfast -- fresh fruit, asparagus, bacon, quiche, muffins, toast, jam, coffee & tea! Would happily stay there again

Wendy and Ray are wonderful hosts. They provided cheerful and welcoming accommodations to six travelers in a period-decorated old home. The tourism advice was appreciated and the breakfast truly incredible.

The hosts at Wellington create a relaxed & welcoming atmosphere. My room was lovely, with many antiques to enjoy! Loved the sitting porch. The bath was immaculate & spacious. Breakfast was also quite good -- and they invited my son to enjoy breakfast with me, much appreciated.

Ray & Wendy make you feel right at home, if home had the most beautiful bedroom and delicious food.
5 on October 03, 2012
The Wellington is without doubt a most warm, comfortable place to stay.
5 on September 07, 2012
Staying with Ray & Wendy at Bed & Breakfast Wellington is like staying with family. You feel like you are at home -- but no one in my family ever made me such delicious breakfasts!

My husband and I were welcomed by Wendy and Ray on August 1, 2012 and we stayed for 3 great nights. We were looking forward to total relaxation due to some particular personal stresses and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the Stickley room, a large room with antiques and also with a great private balcony/patio overlooking the tree-lined street. We are both from the area and now live in Florida so it was just so pleasant sitting out under the oaks. The house was beautiful and sparkling clean. Being an older home, the bathroom was small, and the dressing area was in the bedroom itself, but no bother to us. The room could, however, use a make-up mirror due to low lighting for the vain women that may stay there. :) Breakfast on the sun porch was terrific and we came to know Wendy a bit and just enjoyed her so much. We were in the middle of a heat wave, so it was very difficult to keep everything on the table for too long, so poor Wendy had to traipse back and forth re-setting the table as we were late risers! We will definitely stay there again!! Thank you Wendy, and the rest of our vacation in Lake Placid was fantastic! Darlene and John K.

We were in Syracuse for our daughter's graduation and wellington B&B made it a fabulous weekend. The food, company and accommodations were outstanding.

The Inn's historic architectual design, it city neighborhood niched with traveler's amenities, and it central drive about location, are more than enough. But what really made me a return visitor are the sparks of progress in Syracuse. Framed by mountains and Lake Onandaga, tall construction rigs continue to dominate the skyline. A quick preuse online matches what is most evident on the streets, reordered infrastructure, far reaching R&D employment, techie education and advancement. For those not familiar with mobile apps that the city provides for tourist and parking convenience, there are walking "ambassadors" who provide ready assistance and guide to the renewed walkability and well marked streets, reestablished housing, parks and attractions. Syracuse is equidistant between the financial centers of two countries (Toronto - Canada, New York City - USA) so its citizens enjoy sport and culture at the highest levels while firmly pitching localization such as this nestled city Bed and Breakfast. Far beyond Starbucks comforts, the hosts at this Inn provide hallmark service of every care and consideration.

I had a few special requests during my stay that were met with perfection -- great friendly hosts.

Convenient Location close to downtown Syracuse and right off 81. Very nice room, very clean room, very comfy, really wonderful breakfast, but best of all the people were warm, friendly, welcoming, fun to visit with, and made the experience much better than average. We are regular B&B goers and this one is one of the best experiences so far.
4.4 on October 02, 2011
We spent 2 weeks in our hometown of Syracuse at the Wellington. What a treasure! Wendy and Ray made us feel like family and welcomed our family and friends with open arms. The location is great and the apartment perfect. Can't wait to come back!

My wife, and I, recently spent a wonderful night at the Wellington. The following morning we were greeted by "a breakfast fit for a king". This experience was enhanced by the friendliness of the hosts and the wonderful surroundings of their home. It made a rainy weekend much brighter.

My husband and I were just passing through Syracuse for one night and were delighted to find this "gem" in Syracuse. Delightful host and hostess, exceptionally clean and well appointed rooms. Lots of information on places to go and suggestions on wonderful restaurants in "Little Italy".

An inn with great character and and a warm and welcoming atmosphere! The hosts are friendly, attentive and very helpful. The only thing I can think to change - I wish there was more counter space around the bathroom sink.

I selected Bed & Breakfast Wellington, quite honestly, because it came up 1st when I did an internet search, and I was in a hurry to book a place. Little did I realize that this selection would allow me to to be welcomed and really made to feel at home. The house is more beautiful than the photos on the website shows, with its beautiful woodwork, oriental rugs, gorgeous antique furniture, china, and more. Bathrooms are updated and the entire property is IMMACULATE. Breakfasts are obviously well prepared, beautifully presented, and Wendy will accomodate any personal dietary restrictions without blinking an eye. Location within Syracuse is great for easy access to almost everywhere. My planned stay was 4 nights, but circumstances changed, and I ended up being there for 11 nights. Wendy and Ray (innkeepers) rolled with my plans, and provided friendship and support for me above and beyone what anyone could expect. Do yourself a favor if you are looking for a place that will become a special memory, stay at Bed & Breakfast Wellington!

This is wonderful inn at which to stay over the Christmas holidays! The house is decorated extensively and tastefully---with a Christmas tree in every room. The innkeepers are attentive but not intrusive, and the food is very good. I was traveling with a friend for a "girls' shopping trip" getaway. The Mercer Room is large and has 2 queen beds---perfect. The Inn is close to the Carousel Mall (less than a 5-minute drive) and only a couple miles from downtown shops. There is ample parking behind the inn (off street). The inn is fragrance free---which was wonderful for me and asthma.

Wendy and Ray are the perfect hosts and could not do enough to make our visit homey and comfortable. The Mercer room was wonderful and just perfect for 2 best friends having a Holiday getaway. The Christmas decorations throughout the house were just beautiful. Our location was close to Armory Square and the Carousel Mall. We had a great time for a very reasonable price.

The proprietors were very knowlegeable about the area's events and places to go. They were very accomodating. Our son lives just down the street from them and he joined us for breakfast the last day we were there. Wendy provided a variety of foods and took special interest in preparing foods for our particular dietary needs. The rooms in the house were gorgeous and were furnished in the period in which the house was built. Ray and Wendy both have a sincere passion for their business and this wonderful old house.

My experience is that Bed and Breakfast Wellington has occupied the apex of central New York's accommodations for years and years. Owners Wendy and Ray effortlessly anticipate customer needs. Look no further for comfort, excellent breakfasts, and the opportunity to meet others in a warm, homelike setting. I would stay nowhere else in central New York.

In the middle of this northern N.Y. city is a once-private period home converted into a small, cozy B&B of 4-5 bedrooms, antiques, modern bathroom comforts and most friendly, accommodating hosts. With ample parking out of sight behind the house, flowers lead you to the door for a warm welcome and a quiet night...and a marvelous cooked breakfast the next morning. You will feel refreshed and revived!
