Couple get away

5 on September 16, 2018

We recently stayed at the Inn at Harbor Hill Marina for the 4th time. We love the location and the restaurants in town, the proximity to Harkness and the shore. We stayed in the Clark House which is quiet and we love the Baroque Eagle room with it’s private balcony. The rooms are immaculate, the breakfast is always wonderful and the staff make you feel welcomed. I would recommend this property and will be back.

Innkeeper Response
We were so happy to host you again, and that you decided to stay with us again for a 4th time! We greatly appreciate all your kind accolades about breakfast, our great location, and your guest room. Room #14 The Barque Eagle room is definitely a guest favorite and probably the most rented room in our Captain Clark House. We can not wait to host you again in the future!

A 4 day getaway was just what I needed and the Inn at Harbir Hill Marina delivered on all points. It was quiet, peaceful in a charming lovely setting. The grounds were kept beautifully as was the Inn. The rooms were lovely, the breakfast was perfect every day.. I would most certainly find my way back again!

THANK YOU SUE AND DAVE

4.8 on September 15, 2018

This was our first stay at Harbor Hill Inn, and to say it was amazing is an understatement. Never have we been treated so specially. From the moment we walked in the door, someone was available to help, or just converse. The rooms were immaculate, as well as the entire Inn. The breakfast was far more than we expected , bacon and eggs/ french toast and sausage, wonderful coffee, and a buffet also. Sitting in the breakfast room with a beautiful view of the harbor and the many boats was so relaxing. We hope we have the opportunity to return soon.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for such a wonderful review, we all appreciate hearing such positive feedback! All members of our team, from the office staff, our housekeepers, the breakfast crew, and of course our fabulous innkeepers, Sue and Dave work together to create the best possible experience for our guests. We are happy to hear your stay was both relaxing and met your expectations. We would love to host you again in the future, please think about us for any future getaways! Safe travels, and have a happy fall season!

Totally fantastic!

4.6 on September 13, 2018

We had a 2nd floor room with a balcony and windows on 3 sides for the most incredible view ever. The owners, Dave and Sue, are super friendly and helpful. The grounds are immaculate and there are so many places to sit and watch the marina, etc. After 10 days so far on the New England bucket-list Road Trip, it still holds first place!

Innkeeper Response
Wow first place, thank you! That is quite an honor, and we appreciate you writing a review on your stay with us. Thank you for the accolades regarding your guest room, the view, and our wonderful innkeepers Sue and Dave. We hope you had a wonderful trip exploring New England, the fall is certainly when all its beauty comes to life! Safe travels, and have a happy fall season!

Our favorite bed and breakfast

5 on September 12, 2018

Another wonderful stay at our favorite b&b. The food was delicious, sue & Dave for friendly. We enjoyed an Alison Krauss concert at Foxwoods, went to the maritime Festival in New London, enjoyed a rainy afternoon at a movie at the quaint Niantic Cinemas. And also spent time relaxing on the porch enjoying the view.

Innkeeper Response
First off thank you for choosing to stay with us again, and calling the inn your favorite B&B. It sounds like you had a great trip and were able to enjoy the shoreline with some fun outings! We have to agree nothing is better than sitting out on the porch and watching the water and boats, it can be very relaxing! Thank you for your kind review and the taking the time to write about your stay, we can't wait to host you again! Please enjoy the fall season, and safe travels.
