My husband and I had a lovely stay at this B&B. The owner showed so much kindness to us and to our daughter who came to visit with us while we were there. I checked out the other rooms and all are so inviting. The designs of the rooms and trim and wallpapers about just have to be seen to... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night as we were touring New England, and we had a great stay. I can see how Bruce's manner and sense of humor might catch a wound-up guest off guard, but we found him welcoming, pleasant, and genuinely keen to make sure we had a comfortable stay. We really appreciated his effort... More

I waited too long to book a hotel from the block of rooms for a cheer competition and they sold out. In an effort to be creative I looked up bed and breakfast in Manchester and found this jewel. Less than 10 minutes from Hartford, for less than a chain hotel, my daughter and I luxuriated in a true mansion... More

Despite the very severe weather, the innkeeper welcomed us and accommodated our every request. He even accepted a vague request for one sure and a second less sure stay. We stayed both nights. Breakfast included delicious local maple syrup (authentic and, as New England folks know, that makes ALL the difference). Our stay was in the midst of winter weather... More

The Mansion Inn was a really interesting place to stay. I was in town for a conference and my grandmother joined me. The location of the Mansion Inn was great - close to everything we needed. The facilities were clean, cozy, & unique. The breakfast was delicious. A big downside to our stay was the host - Bruce. At times,... More

We enjoyed the large space of the Rose Room on our one night stay while touring New England. The house and furniture could use some sprucing up, but we were very comfortable. After arriving we left for dinner shortly after and got a call while we were out that the power had gone out at the Inn. When we returned... More

I stayed at the Mansion Inn overnight and enjoyed the experience. I stayed in the Lilac Room and regretted I couldn't stay longer. It is a spacious, lovely, intimate suite. The Inn is centrally located and easily accessed. Breakfast is included and delicious. I had blueberry/banana pancakes that were light and tasty and the coffee was good and strong. I... More

Having read other reviews, I have to agree with some and take issue with others. This is my 58th B&B Inn, so I have a pretty good knowledge of the whole experience. The Inn could use some fresh paint and less wallpaper, and some vines and bushes trimmed back, but there was a warmth there that was comforting. Bruce became... More

I have read these rave reviews of the Mansion Inn and it's Inn keeper, Bruce, and I can tell you, these folks must have come up from the dark corners of the Ozarks to think this is a great B & B. I've been to plenty, around the world, and this place is near the bottom. Our room was big,... More

bbandjb1, Owner at The Mansion Inn Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

Its a bit hard to respond to this review but, as the owner/innkeeper, there are a number of the items mentioned that I'd like to offer my perspective on. First, we are very pleased that this guest found the Rose suite, the largest room here with a king bed and self-contained bathroom, a pleasant experience! Next, let me describe our... More

The B&B was the former family home of one of the silk barons in Manchester. That's probably the most interesting feature of the place. Otherwise, the place could really use some sprucing up since everything is slightly dysfunctional or old (not even "charming"): bathrooms, beds, interior design, sound proofing... Other negative: breakfast not served until 8:30 am, which is not... More
