We spent 2 nights last week at Cape Arundel Inn. Actually, we stayed at Old Fort Estate just a 1/4 mi from the Main resort. Our room was outstanding! There is a pool at Cape Arundel, but the Estate had its own pool--large and clean with plenty of chaises, umbrellas and towels. They also provide food and drink service all... More

There are so many beautiful hotels in kennebunkport that there is absolutely no reason to pay their overpriced rate for a room that isn't even in town. Even though the workers seemed really nice, The management is unreasonable and annoying to deal with.

We recently spent four nights here. We've stayed here before, but not in the main building. We had the corner suite over looking Walker Point, Better known as the Bush Compound. What a view. Minor complaint is the tiny bathroom, with absolutely no shelves for you toiletries. The restaurant is beyond wonderful and the included breakfast was delicious. I would... More

The view from the Cape Arundel Inn is the best in Kennebunkpot. This hotel is great for couples. The food presentation is great, but the taste is not up to par. Top shelf restaurants in the area are Earth and White Barn Inn.

A great place to relax and enjoy Kennebunkport. The hotel is top notch in location, views, service, rooms and condition! We only spent one night here, due to availability, but it was a great experience. Would definitely recommend the Inn to all. Did not have dinner at the restaurant, which has a very good looking menu.

We stayed here in late June.. Not our first visit. I was reading a recent review and the review mentioned that there was a Pool available? That would have been nice, but no one at the desk told us about a Pool....The rooms were outstanding. The porch is like no other! We did not eat dinner there this time, the... More

We recently spent two lovely days and nights at the Cape Arundel Inn and found it to be excellent. Our room overlooked the sea and had a beautiful balcony for just relaxing and especially for star gazing.

Stayed at the Cape Arundel Inn from July 5, 2014 to July 8, 2014, and was greatly pleased with the accommodations, and the staff. The room (need to replace overly soft mattress!) was expansive, and had a wonderful view of the ocean, with the surf crashing against the rocky Maine Coast. I read a review where someone complained about the... More
