While this maybe an overused phrase, for me and The Mansion Inn its absolutely true! I'm lucky enough to stay there on business trips but it would be perfect for couples wanting to explore New England. Bruce, the owner, is so warm and welcoming and is a really good cook - breakfasts that make you want to skip lunch.

The Mansion Inn provides a great base from which to explore the sights of Greater Hartford. Bruce is a very informative, helpful host, and guided us to interesting places and good restaurants that we would not have found on our own. He is also a fount of information about the history of Manchester and the Cheney family. The Mansion itself... More

I planned a last minute trip here--4th July weekend with my husband and son. I chose this B and B partly because the reviews intrigued me and I wanted to meet the man and see the house that inspired them. The House is lovely and so is Bruce. The house is well-kept, pretty and charmingly comfortable.The rules which annoyed some... More

Hubby and I stayed at the Mansion Inn last fall, for nine nights, and found it very comfortable. Owner Bruce runs his business/home seriously, but he's a big-hearted man, who made our stay so much nicer than just a place to sleep, with nice breakfasts, and by sharing local history stories, local eatery and Connecticut attraction info, even car repair...

The Inn was chosen based on ratings and reviews. Bruce Hamstra, owner-operator, appears to have fallen on some lean times as the property is ill-kempt, in need of maintenance and updating both outside and inside. The property/structure is overgrown with vines and the landscaping needs much attention. The experience was disappointing in that such a lovely property has been allowed... More

My husband and I stayed here since we live a little too far from the UConn campus in Storrs to be there as early as required for my morning graduation. The Ivy Room was furnished with antique photos, lots of books, a comfortable love seat and recliner as well as queen bed. Breakfast by Bruce was delicious sweet potato pancakes... More

We arrived late and as instructed earlier, found a note on the front door telling us how to enter. We did so, and checked into our room. At around 9pm, the innkeeper knocked on our door, and when we asked who was there - we were told; you are staying in my house. My husband answered the door - we... More

We stopped by the Mansion Inn on our way to Vermont for a brief overnight stay. This was our FIRST B&B stay ever so we had no expectations. We arrived around 4:00 in the afternoon and were met at the door by Bruce, the owner. He showed us around the house and to our room. Our accommodations were exceptional. We... More

This was absolutely the worst experience I've ever had at a B&B. The owner is an ill-tempered creepy man and it felt more like a prison stay than a relaxing night away. Signs all over the room telling you what you can do and what you can't. Not clean and breakfast...well, we just left to go to a local place... More

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

When a guests arrive at our B and B, they are given a brief tour of the common areas of the inn and then a tour of their room so that we can point out the various features of the room. One of these is the working fireplace and, since guest safety is our primary concern as innkeepers and owners,... More
