I will be. back
This was a great experience. Russ is a most obliging host.

Very good 8.0
Great location
The couple that run the Inn are super sweet and helpful. Great location and breakfast was awesome. Giving it 4 stars instead of five only because I was on the first floor and the floors were very loud above me. I was woken up at 4am and kept up by the people staying above me, sounded like elephants walking around up there.

Great hosts with amazing breakfast! We walked easily to historic downtown. Highly recommended!

Trip to forget
Room was dusty. Our allergies were constantly reacting to it. For the price we would have been better off in one of the hotels in the area. We ended up minimizing our time spent in the room.

Great place from which to explore Portsmouth
This is a beautiful old house, with real antiques everywhere. There are many details such as all day coffee and other hot drinks, complimentary sherry, and chocolates. The breakfast is substantial and the garden is lovely. All around a very nice place within 10 minute walk to center of town.

If you want to relax, youve come to the right plac
Bed was comfy and huge, privacy was ideal, location was prime and felt very much at home. Innkeepers are an adorable couple that make excellent breakfast(you're doing yourself a disservice if you miss the free breakfast from 8:30-9:30am). Location is a nice and easy 10 minute walk from downtown Portsmouth. We won't stay anywhere else when we go up there again.

Wonderful B&B Experience
The Martin Hill Inn is a lovely B&B located a few minutes walk away from Portsmouth. It is ideal for anyone who wants to drop off their car and walk around the town for a weekend. The hosts were exceptionally nice, the breakfast provided was delicious, and I enjoyed the grounds. We came in Winter, so we didn't get to explore them properly, but I imagine they look great in the Spring/Summer. Would definitely stay there again.
