My wife and I have been staying at the Inn for a decade for our anniversary celebration. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent rooms and accomodations. We have always enjoyed the breakfast. Relaxing and reading in the lobby is a treat. We have planned our return for 2018.

We had a harbourview room for one night and it was beautifully appointed with a lovely view of the canal. In addition to the beautiful bed, it had an attractive sofa with a coffee table and a lovely desk and chair. There were coffee table books to look at and the bathroom was lovely. The front desk staff prepared a...

Extremely helpful staff, very comfortable rooms and amazing views. Had a very nice stay for two nights while on a business trip during the off season. The weather was a little chilly but still plenty of restaurants and activities to keep us busy.

This romantic little Inn is a vacation all its own! We just love the New England charm of this beautifully appointed hotel with the most comfortable and relaxing goose down sofa in your room!

What a fantastic place to stay! We were impressed just walking into the lobby, then we saw our room. Very clean, had an extra sitting room, which we weren'the even aware we were getting. Bed was not the most comfortable, but the amenities more than made up for it. Breakfast included..all cold foods, but very fresh and delicious. Huge assortment...

Traditional decor with high quality amenities (the linens, bathrobes, Toto toilets, bath products, good selection of newspapers in the breakfast room, copious fresh flowers in the lobby along with a beautiful Xmas tree) -- you feel a personal touch without kitsch. The staff are wonderful -- everyone warm, friendly & helpful. Ron at the front desk switched the members of...

We stayed here for the weekend of the Lewes Christmas Parade and holiday celebration. The staff was very friendly, courteous and overly helpful. The inn was very clean. Our room was also clean, well apportioned and larger than most of this style. The European style breakfast was more than adequate to start our day. Hopefully, we can return next year...

Found this hotel on-line, and I must say, it was a great find! When I made the reservation, I had mentioned we would be celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary on the Saturday. Was asked if I'd like a bottle of champagne in the room. Asked the charge, and was told it would be complimentary. How nice!! They had me there!...

The Inn is very quiet partly because the rooms are only on one side of the hallway facing the canal. Nice room with balcony with canal view. Good toiletry products in bathroom. Very comfortable bed, sofa, two chairs, a desk and two more chairs, TV, bar, you get the idea. A few feet from shops and restaurants. Short drive to...
