Exceptional 10.0
Charming B & B, friendly people, homey feel, excellent breakfast, convenient
Ellen, us2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
The need for heat
The check-in was very casual and the check-in clerk seemed to have limited interest in good service. Also, the first room I was allocated had no heat and it took 45 minutes to try to resolve this and then get a new room. Everything else was lovely - great room (eventually), great breakfast , great area

Great place to stay and breakfast was fabulous!
Zanna, ie1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Clean Room & Good Breakfast, but VERY Steep Steps.
Everything was very clean, and the breakfast was good. Good location near the Harvard campus and not far from public transit. Historic house. But I was sent to a 3rd floor room that had very steep, spiral stairs and a teeny tiny bathroom. I'm 63. I should have been warned that my room was meant for a small, young billy goat.
Marilyn, usOther trip
Good 6.0
Great hotel, great location. My complaints are likely specific to our visit and situation (like coming back at 11pm to a room with broken AC after an 80-degree day). I would still recommend it to anyone in the area and would likely stay again.
