Very Nice Stay

5 on August 28, 2013

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.

Beautiful Inn

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.

Wonderful overnight

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.

Excellent Experience

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.

very enjoyable stay

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
