You could set the clock back to the 1900s when you walked through the rooms, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, wish we could have stayed longer, but this was our last resting place before returning to the UK. The lovely Pat was on duty with her very calm manner, with lovely staff who cared working for her and Bill. Loved the... More

Dear MichaelAn, Thank for the very good review. Many of our European guests enjoy the last vacation stop in Falmouth before heading to Boston and home. Falmouth is a sleepy little town in comparison to the hustle and bustle of the big cities. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Bill & Pat More

We only spent one night at the Inn. We needed a place to stay after the Falmouth "Road Race." We checked in after hours so we didn't have a chance to see anything but our room. We were in the penthouse on the 3rd floor. The room was lovely and immaculate, but a long way up and down the stairs.... More

Just book it. It's fantastic in everyway you could care to measure a hotel. Service, cleanliness, features, value, etc, all absolutely brilliant. The whole place has a very personal feel and excels at making you feel welcome and at home (from home). I could write an essay covering all the virtues of this place but I'll simply cut to the...

Dear Lisank81, Thank you, thank you for the brilliant review. It is a shame that there is not a way to rate guests. Because you would be a six star guest. It was a pleasure to chat with you each morning of your stay. Have a wonderful life together. Fondly, Bill & Pat More

My wife and I recently stayed here for the Falmouth Road Race and the location couldn't have been better. It was within walking distance to the shops and restaurants on Main street. As for the race, it was only 2 tenths of a mile from the bus pickup. We would surely stay here again.

This was the fifth visit to the Palmer House Inn. Pat and Bill make it feel as if we are coming home for an annual visit each time. They are ever so friendly and accommodating. The homemade breakfasts each morning are creative and delicious. We look forward to our return next summer.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights while visiting family in Woods Hole. The Palmer House Inn is a beautifully decorated and well-maintained inn located at the south end of Falmouth, convenient to Woods Hole. It is on a fairly quiet street in the historical section of town so the entire neighborhood is attractive and pleasing. There are... More

Everything from start to finish was amazing. The innkeeper has such attention to detail that all the amenities are spotless and impeccably kept. they have truly thought of everything. We mentioned it was our anniversary and they went above and beyond. In a time where quality is sparse this diamond is reminiscent of a more respectful and elegant time. We... More

This was our second stay at the Palmer House Inn. The first was two years ago. Both visits were Victorian perfection. We stayed in the Robert Frost Room and it was so comfortable and clean, we did not want to leave. The shower and whirlpool tub was luxurious for someone who lives in a New York city apartment.
