We found this beautiful place searching for a typical new england Inn. We found just that! We stayed at room 3 "The country room". Perfect for three. The room was filled with flowers (on the walls, on the cover, on the pillows). We were received at the counter of the Restaurant (wich we heard has amazing dishes!) and we settled... More

My wife and I had always wanted to spend a night here in the fall. October 2015 near peak foliage, and this was the year. We’re glad we did. We called for availability and we had a choice between a few rooms, and the hostess was helpful in steering us to Room 7, which is a second floor room with... More

I am so sorry I did not see you kind review until today. I am so glad you enjoyed all about Kent, including the Fife. Autumn this year did not disappoint, it was really spectacular.

We have stayed at this inn a number of times in the past and once again chose to stay this October. We had a handicapped room (we are not handicapped) off the parking lot. The location is great for walking to restaurants and for convenience with close parking. This time, however, the price was way off for the no-frills service,... More

This was our second visit to the Fife 'n Drum. I have been pleasantly surprised by this small Inn. We stayed in room 14each time and it has been clean and comfortable. We have also eaten at the restaurant 3 different times. Food and service have been fantastic. Highly recommend!

Lovely and comfortable NEW room no. 14 next to gift shoppe. Never heard the train until 7:30 am when we were up getting ready to attend Grandparents Day at our grandsons' school. Wonderful dinner at restaurant across parking lot after a 5 hr drive. Check in was a little disturbing having to go to restaurant and not a "front desk"... More

I had high expectations of the Fife and Drum hotel from the great photo on the website. I was looking forward to staying in room number one with its rich looking bedding and pretty accents. It talked about the fine soaps and all the nice extras. Well when we arrived we had to check in at the restaurant as there... More

I wish you had first called or emailed me personally to tell of your dissatisfaction with your stay. When one does not sign their name to a grievance, it is rather difficult to contact them and offer a personal apology. I would have preferred to listen to your remarks, rather than get an internet black eye. A public humiliation is... More

The place was clean, but the room was worn down. You can hear the heavy noise of the Train Tracks at night which could interrupt light sleepers. For all options in KENT this is probably one of the best.

I feel this review is going to be out of date shortly as the Fife 'n Drum does improvements on their building. The room we stayed in looked recently updated. It had a king bed along with a twin bed under the window. The bathroom looked recently renovated and was bright and airy. The one downside to the bathroom is... More

Perfect place for us to rest after a day of skiing on nearby Mohawk Mountain. The carpark was frozen over which made getting to our room and our car a bit of a hair raising experience. Not sure what they can do about that anyway really. Breakfast down the street at The Villager diner was great and the perfect start... More

While the rooms were clean, they were very run down. I arrived late at night and entered Room #7 through 2 separate doors to find a window wide open with no screen. I checked my colleagues room, who had not yet arrived, to find the window wide open with no screen as well. The rooms hold run down decor/furnishings. For... More
