Extremely overpriced for the quality of the room and hotel. The paint on the walls and ceiling was peeling and very dirty. The bathroom walls and fixture were rusting and staineEd. The furniture was in very poor condition for the premium price being paid. Other accommodations on the island are much nicer for significantly less money.

We packed our bags first thing and when we came back they had been moved to the new room. Food excellent and good sized portions Always smiling staff and keen to please. Nice for Songkran, you can take as... More

I loved the staff. The hotel and rooms were extremely clean. I had a fun weekend in Nantucket and will definitely refer all my friends to the VNH. Bonus: They just opened up a sushi restaurant that is connected to the hotel! It was so delicious I basically ate there as much as I could! Make sure you check it... More

I ADORED the VNH, I was referred by a friend who stays there every summer after I told them I would be on Nantucket for a wedding. It was chic, quaint, luxurious. The rooms are small but the beds are beyond and the marble bathroom made me swoon. I noticed other reviews about the size of the rooms, and they... More

Our room was tiny and that was not mentioned on the hotel's website. It was only slightly larger than a full size bed. The shower was similarly small and there was barely enough room for one person to stand. That aside, the staff were very nice. The hotel is close to everything and very convenient to get in and out... More

First of all, you have to be fit to climb the almost vertical staircase up 2 flights. The room is called by them "cozy". It is extremely small. The bathroom is small. My husband and I hit our elbows constantly on the shelves in the shower. One person allowed at a time. You cannot use the sink and have someone... More

I recently spent a long weekend at this charming hotel…with the most comfortable bed I ever slept on! The exquisitely furnished room was spotless, the bathroom had all one could ask for and Hermes toiletries to boot! Vanessa’s staff was welcoming and accommodating. I can’t wait to go back!

I went for my husband for a two night stay and it was awful. The first room was dirty, the paint was peeling off the ceiling, the tv was broke, and there were bugs in the lighting fixture. They moved us to a second room which had the same problems. We were then moved into the Vanessa Noel from the... More

The check in process took 15 minutes because the woman behind the desk was torn between checking me in and attending to a casual personal phone call. The room was cozy and the bed was very comfortable. The location of the hotel was also very good. When it came time to check out, the front office door was locked and... More
