The Tides Inn is a lovely hotel that goes the extra mile with nice touches such as a glass of fizz each when we arrived and a bag of bottled water and home made cakes when we checked out. We just booked a standard room which was fine and had a really comfortable bed but I wished I had paid... More

I hesitated to book our 2 night stay here because of the price, but I would do it over again every year. The decor is so vibrant and chic. The downstairs bar is unbelievable with specialty drinks only found at their hotel (that I'm still craving). Definitely a great couples getaway spot where you can feel like you're disconnected from... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on 3rd & 4th October. We had been notified that the restaurant was closed for a private function ob both nights but did not realise it would be a 20 min drive into Kennebunkport each night for a meal. It also meant that there was nowhere to sit in the hotel in the evening... More
