When I opened the door to my room, I was greeted with a small plate of cookies on my bed. How can that not make you smile? The Castle Manor Inn is a large and lovely inn with a very cozy family feel. For two days, I stayed in a lovely room on the top floor with a lovely view... More

The Castle Manor Inn is a beautiful Victorian turreted building with and impressive staircase and pocket doors on many of the rooms. We stayed for one night in the Scenic View room which is spacious with a King bed and a small but functional bathroom. We found the room very comfortable but it is on the Route 133 Essex Avenue...

A nice place to stay. The breakfast is good and reasonably priced; but, not included, which surprised us. For the price of the room, it should be. We stayed in the main house, 2nd floor. Staircase is wide, gentle and easily negotiated. As a data point, we're in our 60's but in decent shape... Bathroom is tiny, but works; concur... More

The welcome we got was very stuffy, not warm and friendly. We were fortunate to be able to stay in the beautiful main building and climbing the stairs was no problem for us but it may be for some. The room was great, nicely decorated and loved the king size bed. I should have done more research on this because... More

When we planned a trip to Massachusetts we were looking for something different than one of the chain franchises that are basically all the same. The Castle Manor Inn is a wonderfully kept Victorian Manor, there are no elevators, no hairdryers in the rooms, no Keurigs or small refrigerators. There is a fantastic bed with good pillows, a lovely seating... More

My husband and I were looking forward to a final stay in New England of 19 days. We didn't realize that the inn was also involved with a motel strip on either side of the inn. When I requested a stay in the inn, we were told that the only room with two beds was on the third floor. Since... More

I've been meaning to write this review for awhile. I looked at this place for a possible wedding venue. I made arrangements to have my family and I come up for a bridal show that was happening on their back porch. The manager also claimed not to worry about the bridal show that I would get a personal tour and... More

My husband, dog and I were staying in Gloucester due to a 15 mile race around Cape Ann. We knew we would be having one of the motel rooms because of our dog.The price was right, the unit freshly painted, very clean, and had a new bathroom. Perfect for our needs. There were other very lovely rooms in the manor... More

The accommodations were super with a beautiful view. Saw kids enjoying an event. Concierge sent us successfully around the busy town to great sites and events. Pleasantly came back to a warm, quiet and inviting Inn for rest. Then breakfast before we departed was fulfilling and yummy.
