My husband and I have stayed here on a number of occasions - its outstanding. The service is excellent from start to finish, the staff can't do enough for you. The food in the restaurant is very good and for us staying there at Xmas and NY we were able to eat at times when other places were closed. We... More

Stunning sunrise views, wonderful people, and delicious food made for a perfect holiday at the Harbour View Hotel. We decided at the last minute to travel and had little luck in finding a trip until we noticed a jaunt to Martha's Vineyard still available. A great choice as we walked a great deal (the hotel is hardly far from downtown... More

A lovely, quiet hotel in a fabulous situation. The rooms aren't quite as pretty as the web site would have you believe - in fact they felt a bit "upmarket motel around a pool". But they were comfortable. The restaurant is beautiful and has one of the best breakfast views you could wish for. We would definitely return.

Went to the New year's Eve Celebration for the second time because we had such a good time last year. Had to stay at Kelly House as I made the reservation late. Food was a buffet with small plates for standing around and socializing. The food was fantastic. It included raw bar with oysters and shrimp. There was a variety... More

The hotel does have the main house where rooms have views and a section at the back with rooms with balconies and no sea views… We had a room which had a view of greenery - no vis-a-vis. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. As we travelled in December, we had no problem with parking at the hotel or... More

Hotel is a combination of a lovely Victorian style mansion with a cheesy motel type building at the back. We got a room in the motel part-most likely because we booked through Expedia & are too cheap to upgrade to the main building which was an additional $50 for no more of a view than the car park which is...

Real laid back, old world atmosphere, a little too far to walk to downtown, parking a problem, restaurant needs a good manager; still all said it was an experience worth the time and money in every way.

We stay as a family in one of the cottage behind the main buildings, which was great until further notice. The locks on one of the doors was broken. The fireplace was out of action on one of the cold nights that would of been perfect had it worked. The tv remote was also not working. But the location is... More

We visit Edgartown every December for "Christmas in Edgartown". This year we wanted to try someplace different, so we chose The Harbor View Hotel. We have always enjoyed the Lighthouse wreath lighting each year that happens in front of the hotel and thought what a better place to stay this time. The choice was a good one. The room was... More

The hotel itself is a beautiful historical artifact from days gone by, yet fairly well maintained, and clean. The rooms are adequate, some have balconies, most do not. It is a wooden structure so the floors might squeak, but it's all part of the atmosphere. The last time we stayed, there were several weddings that weekend so the lobby and... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for you recent review on your experience from your stay July. In order to provide great guest service we must provide a foundation of training and Island knowledge for our highly seasonal staff that often comes from areas that know very little about the Vineyard and our Hotel. As the new General Manager I can... More
