5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We recently spent 4 days at The Sydney in Edgartown and loved it. The location in Edgartown is ideal and the staff couldn't have been nicer. The recently remodeled rooms are very cozy and welcoming and the breakfast at the nearby Victorian Inn was just right.

We stayed 2 nights here, and enjoyed it very much. The location is perfect in Edgartown. I looked for options in both Edgartown and Oak Bluffs. We have never been to Martha's Vineyard before, and I'm glad we ended up here. Oak Bluffs has the feel of a cruise ship stop. Fun to visit but glad to have stayed in... More

Stayed at the Sydney (the Fallon) 2 years ago for our honeymoon. Loved it then but now with the new look and name it is fresh and unique but still has what we loved: the gardens, the Adirondacks, same great staff. They added breakfast at their other hotel down the street, the Vic, which is perfect to start the day.... More

We just left the Sydney and had a wonderful time. It's the perfect location to experience Martha's Vineyard. The inn is gorgeous and the room was beautiful. Carol the manager made us feel so welcome and went above and beyond to make sure we had a fabulous stay. I would highly recommend the Sydney !!!!

I booked a room for 4 night in August. Understanding that it is a difficult week, we waited to book airline flights from Dallas, Texas to the Vineyard until we knew we had a room. 24 hours later (and after we made all other non-refundable travel arrangements) we get a cancellation of our room with no explanation. We email back... More

Dear Mr....., I am extremely suprised to read this review. I immediately responded to your email that your reservation had just been cancelled. I was shocked to see that it had even gone as far as "Pending" because I knew those dates had been sold out for months. I contacted our reservation system as to why it could have gotten... More

You won't find a better location in the center of Edgartown but be prepared for street noise at the peak of the summer season. It usually quiets down by 10:00p.m. but resumes in the morning with the arrival of delivery trucks and other traffic. The rooms have lovely amenities including plush towels, bathrobes etc. The inviting porch and front flower... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at The Fallon. As you said, our location can't be beat. But with that does come some noise during peak season. We are excited though as we will be undergoing a full renovation in the fall with new windows and all new furnishings. As a boutique inn we do not... More

The Fallon is located in the heart of Edgartown in a beautiful old house. It is really unique and cozy inside. It has an attractive flower garden in front with adirondack chairs you can sit on and have a drink. It also has a nice patio, which was especially valuable as we had a few rainy days. Our room #8...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at The Fallon. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you mentioned, we are housed in a 150 year old whaling captains house so the rooms on the 3rd floor are smaller as they are the top floor and the roof of the... More

We stayed in Room #1 - large "king" room. We were grateful for the in room seating area as there is no common space in the inn save some outdoor seating that others have mentioned and the bar associated with the restaurant that occupies the first floor. We turned off the a/c upon our arrival and had a nice, beginning... More

We really enjoyed our time at the Fallon and in Martha's Vineyard. This Inn is close to everything! There is even a fabulous restaurant on the main floor. We were able to walk everywhere.
