Why oh why has the Bradford closed? We had the good fortune to stay here a couple of times in one of my most favourite place, Chatham, and had hoped to return again one day. I know that many people returned year after year to this hotel, it is such a shame.

Located just off Main Street in 5 or 6 separate buildings all Clapboard New England style. Very nicely furnished with quiet comfortable rooms.Well maintained gardens. Continental breakfast with some limited hot food available . Short walk to local restaurants - on of which is under same ownership - The Goose. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We would stay again.

Such devastating news. I already wrote a review on the Bradford last year when I stayed for Christmas Stroll Weekend in December. I have been coming to the Bradford Inn since I was a child. Almost every year my parents and I came for the Christmas weekend and enjoyed the carolers, snow, and shopping. I have fond memories of Chatham... More

Went here for a wedding. You can walk to all the shops and restraints in the area.. Everyone who worked there was extremely friendly. Rooms are what you would expect for the area. Nothing upscale here. More of a bed a breakfast feel. Very quaint! Quite pricy for September!! But so is every other place there. Worth doing it once... More

We were at the Bradford Inn for 3 nights in July and enjoyed our stay very much. The Inn is made up of several guest houses on a beautifully maintained property just off of Main Street in the heart of Chatham. Our room was in one of the houses at the rear of the property, and could not have been... More

We spent 2 nights at the Bradford Inn. Great staff. Breakfast was nice. Location excellent for touring the area. We prefer ground level. This boutique inn has small buildings all around. You could have to go up many stairs to your room if you do not request main level.

Not a bad place to stay. The outside was lovely and very well kept. The breakfast was substantial and delicious!! The room was spacious however, it smelt like an old man's bathroom (my fiancé and I smelled so bad when we woke up) and it needs to be renovated. The beds were lumpy and wavy and the bathroom felt like... More

They do not take kids under 12 years old which could be a good thing if you want a quiet place to stay but the lady who answered my call was not nice about it at all! They acted like it was so crazy that we even asked to stay there.
