More than just a B&B

5 on December 26, 2014

Carisbrooke Inn is more than just a B&B. In December the Atlantic City Ballet was in search of hotels to donate rooms to them for the orchestra that was playing for their production of The Nutcracker. Without hesitation, John and his partner, donated 6 rooms to the Ballet! They were extremely accommodating to the musicians who stayed there and followed up to make sure the ballet didn't need anything else. The Atlantic City Ballet can't thank them enough!!! The musicians were very pleased with the rooms and were made to feel right at home. Staying here means you support businesses that support their community

Great location - was pretty much what was expected.

Perfect Ventnor beach vacation spot!

5 on September 16, 2014

I stayed here the week of September 8, 2014 (Miss America Pageant week). I will definitely be coming back, with hubby next time. John and Agnes work very hard to ensure your stay is wonderful, and their hard work shows in everything. Delicious food cooked to order every morning. Fresh fruit, cheese, wine, and home-baked goods every afternoon. The entire inn is spotlessly clean. The little touches found in every room of this inn make it feel like your own home, only you don't have to clean it or cook. It's comfortable and beautiful. I stayed in Room 9 - at the top of the house, with a lovely bathroom (steam spa/shower for 2), king-sized canopy bed, lovely comfortable arm chair & ottoman and fabulous huge window seat overlooking the beach/ocean. 9 windows, which, when opened at night, let in a great wonderful salt-air breeze making the air-con unit unnecessary. I got to see most of the other rooms, since I arrived a little early and was first to check in. Each room was very different, and all were charming. Some larger than mine, some smaller - but all were rooms that I wanted to stay in. I guess I'll just have to keep on coming back to stay in each of the rooms, until I've stayed in them all! The Carisbrooke Inn has the perfect location: Just a mile from Atlantic City, it's close but it's quieter. Just a quarter block from the beach, you can hear the surf hit the sand at night, when it's quiet and your windows are open. Right on the same block from several great restaurants and a good liquor store, and only a block or two from more great restaurants - you can't go wrong. My visit was simultaneously restful & energizing. I was very sorry to leave, and I can't wait to come back again! I came home from the Carisbrooke Inn refreshed, ready to face the daily grind of life again. Thank you, John and Agnes, for a perfect Me-Time vacation! I'll bring my husband with me, next time.

We'll Be Back

The four of us had a great time. We stayed for 3 days monday- Wednesday. We almost had the beach (one block away) to ourselves. The service was great. Lots of little extras were delightful. I'll keep the Carisbrook in my files for the future.

We had a great stay at Carisbrooke inn.

We were there just one night and enjoyed our stay. We were there for a wedding so there were many of us, had 5 rooms, and everyone was so pleased. The beds were great , rooms clean and breakfast was delicious ,with more choices then we expected. Scones were especially good. After we had left one of our party had left an iPod behind ,and to our surprise It was found and returned to us. What a wonderful thing ,how often does such honesty happen? We have only great thing to say about the Carisbrooke Inn and their staff.

So relaxing

We stayed in Room 3 on the first floor of the Inn. Very clean, and, as a bed and breakfast implies, we had a very relaxing time. "Happy hour" held in the evenings was a great way to mingle with the other guests. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. We chose this B&B mainly due to its location, and the fact the beach is practically right outside the door. If we ever venture back to AC, we definitely will be booking here again!

great experience

It's incredible how John and his colleagues care about their guests. We got upgraded just like this, enjoyed a terrific breakfast and slept very well in a nice and comfortable room. There's even a snack in the afternoon with crackers, cheese, vegetables and drinks!
