Passing through on a recent trip through Central New York I had the pleasure of spending the night at Portobello. They say you should never judge a book by its cover and this is certainly the case here. The outside is a bit worn but I was committed and traveling alone so I thought, what could be the worst case?...

We enjoyed four wonderful days in the Herkimer area while staying at the inn. Roland greeted us at our car, offered to help with luggage and addressed us by our first names. He had already prepared the room and cooled it for our comfort. Roland and Steve are terrific hosts. The rooms are always immaculate, the food is fabulous and...

We stayed at the Portobello Inn in Herkimer, New York. Our room was beautifully decorated. Roland and his fellow innkeepers made our stay wonderful. There was every comfort you could want, including afternoon ice tea, homemade cookies and fruit. The breakfast was simply fabulous - baked egg casserole with a side of bacon, orange muffins, individual apple crisps topped with...

It is ont of the most charming places I've stayed in. I travel a lot, and I couldn't be more appreciative of truly clean bed and bathroom and fantastic home made breakfast. It's a beautiful charming villa, the innkeeper Roland will make sure you feel comfortable, and have everything you need. Will recommend to anyone. Bed&Breakfast does not sound fancy,...

We are unabashed fans of this fine, welcoming innkeeper. The property offers an eclectic feel - very soothing in a unique way. Breakfast is outstanding (quiche, bacon, fresh fruit salad, homemade muffins, apple crisp , orange juice, v8 juice, delicious coffee...was this morning's feast) If you are a light sleeper fuss budget, do not stay here.
