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

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

Bed and Breakfasts really are the best way to go. Bruce's engaging and quirky personality put us instantly at ease. We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite for free, and it was actually nice not having wifi. My husband and I were able to relax in this quiet and beautiful house and very much enjoyed Bruce's company and the stories... More

Just to clarify a couple of items in this review, we upgrade our guests to the next best room on a space available basis as a standard practice. This was true for this guest and will be true for any other future guests. Second, we do have a free WIFI available in the inn. Guests are given the password when... More

If you want to feel like a guest in someone's much loved home with a history this is the place for you. Bruce was a most engaging host and we enjoyed having his company at our delicious breakfast. The restaurant we chose from his suggestions was excellent and reasonable and the neighborhood was perfect for an evening walk and a... More

My wife & I visited the inn on 3/20/14 for a two night stay. On arrival we were greeted by Bruce who did seem a bit odd in his greeting & instructions on operating the front door at night but it had logic. After visiting Hartford we went back for a shower. I turned on a side lamp & our... More

For about $100 a night, we had a lovely stay and a much more interesting experience than at any similarly priced national chain. The inn is old but well maintained with a very personal feel. There is a working fire place in every room which was simply wonderful. Overall, if you like the bed and breakfast experience, you will enjoy... More
