My recent visit with a group of 13 other people was great! Over a year ago I began planning to bring a group to the area for a garden tour. I stayed at the hotel while I was scouting the area for my group visit (I plan an annual garden tour for the Polly Hill Arboretum). After my visit I...

We visited this hotel for the first time back in 2012. We were in town to ride the East Bay Bike Path. Upon checking out, we met the manager, John DiCarlo, who wanted to be sure our stay was satisfactory. Fast forward almost two years, and we happened to be back again, to ride the path again and to kayak...

The location is excellent right on the water and all of the staff we met were very nice, especially Christine. Our room was clean and everything worked properly. The price was more than reasonable. Free breakfast. Free wi-fi. Free newspaper. Couldn't ask for more. We will be back.

We recently stayed here for a family vacation. The first two nights, we stayed in a second floor room. This room was fine, clean and roomy. However, needs updating. I assume it is decorated to stay true to the "old New England" feel. The next 5 nights, we stayed in the Diman Apartment. (Had three children and figured the extra...

Stayed for just one night but what a fantastic find. This hotel/inn is right on water with views of water/sunset. In addition it is directly in the quaint town of Bristol complete with red white and blue striped streets and small shops and restaurants within walking distance. Upon entering the lobby was small but inviting and we were greeted pleasantly....

On a recent trip east we stayed for one night at this property. Although it was clean and the staff friendly it was nothing special. It is handy to all the things to do in Bristol and within walking distance to much of the shopping and sightseeing venues. If you are just looking for a place to stay with no...

We stayed at the Bristol Harbor Inn for our wedding weekend - and blocked basically the entire Inn for our guests. Working with Christine was fantastic, she was incredibly helpful and patient with all of our requests and changes leading up to the wedding. Christine and her staff were so friendly and accommodating the entire weekend. The location is perfect...

While the hotel itself is relatively standard without any bells and whistles, it's in the perfect location! Located off of the main street, it has a lovely tavern next door and waterfront restaurant in its backyard. We stayed here for with a wedding party and it couldn't have been more convenient. Only complaint is that walls are a bit thin.
