The Old Lyme inn was a beautifully kept inn with lots of charm. Our room was cozy and provided ample space. The continental breakfast included with our stay had a variety of choices. We had dinner on the patio which was very pretty . We hope to visit the jazz club on the premises the next time we stay. Pam,... More

Went here recently for the Jazz and brunch- both turned our very enjoyable. The location in Old Lyme is very good, but it is close to the highway/road so there is some road noise - not disturbingly so for us, though. The setting was exquisite in that it is an 1865 Inn and we sat outside underneath the centuries old... More

I hesitate to review restaurants because the dining experience can change, sometimes dramatically, if the owner, manager, or chef changes. This is true of the Old Lyme Inn. Based on past experiences over the past thirty years, I would have rated the restaurant from one star to five stars, depending on the year. Currently under the new (About November 2014)... More

We wanted a place to get away to after spending our days with grandchildren at the beach (a relative has two cottages on the beach) over the July 4 weekend. This was perfect - quiet, nice big room, comfortable bed, modern bath, and very nice continental breakfast. The restaurant looked inviting although we were never there for a meal as... More

The promise of most B&B's is quaint, unique decor and personalized service from the front desk. The drawback of B&B's is that quaint decor is often buried under a layer of old dust and musty, stale smells. At the Old Lyme Inn you gett all the promise of B&Bs and none of the drawbacks. The rooms at the inn were... More

Bette Midler performed at Mohegan which is close by. This gave us an opportunity to discover this charming inn. Staff very welcoming and helpful, amenities clean and cozy. Situated close to Mystic and other wonderful Connecticut towns.

Last Thursday night, my partner and I had a terrific dinner, went to an amazing jazz show and slept in a beautiful room with a fireplace all at the same place - Old Lyme Inn. Let me say that we are discerning travelers and expect good service, food and accommodations. We got so much more than we expected. First I... More

Superb dining, Superb overnight accomadations, and a great jazz quartet to go with a great brunch. Did I mention a New York city jazz club right on the premises, "The Side Door Jazz club" with big city musicians playing right there in Old Lyme. What a gem!

From the moment we had made the phone call to inquire about accommodations at the Inn, we were treated like family. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Bathrooms and showers were spotless. The restaurant; from the continental breakfast, lunch to dinner, and the Sunday Brunch, all was exceptional! Would comment on specific plates but I have to get back to... More
