Words cannot describe how I feel, but I will try. My husband and I came for a wedding and we stayed at The Castle Mannor Inn. Before I go in to detail, let me just say that as a New Yorker, every time I've gone to Massachusetts, its always unpleasant and the people are vert nasty. Needless to say, I... More

We decided to stay another day in Gloucester,MA. We were able to find another room at the Castle Manor Inn. What a beautiful hotel. The area and views are tremendous from the main hotel building. Definitely take advantage of them when having breakfast!!!! Our room was part of the lower motor inn area. Rooms are nice size, two queen beds,... More

We stayed here because the weddingwe were attending was at the Inn. We had requested rooms with queen beds since both my sons are well over 6 feet. When checking on the reservation I found our rooms had been switched to ones with double beds. We had no other place to reserve so... .The registrar was rude. Loathe to give... More

And my expectations were met. As most reviewers have noted, Castle Manor offers two very distinct lodging experiences. We stayed in the "motel" which has a sort of kitschy, decaying mid-century charm. On the plus side, the room was spacious and had a lovely view from the deck. The overall location was quite good, a very short drive to the... More

The main building (Castle is too grand a term) is an interesting Victorian pile. It might have been a pleasant stay. Unfortunately the dark side is a very tired 1 on the grounds that we were sentenced t. Very tired. We were placed in a moldy lower level room (dehumidifier). When we couldn't turn on any useful lights, my wife... More

We stayed two nights at this beautiful inn. We stayed in a motel room on the grounds which was so nice. It had a balcony off the back overlooking the river. Easy to take our luggage in!! Very clean and quaint!! We ate dinner at their restaurant. Best food and service on our two week New England trip. Staff was... More

We were very pleased with our stay at the Castle Manor. It is a quaint, traditional old Castle with beautiful antiques everywhere. Each room has its own character. We stayed in the Family Suite which had two rooms. Several rooms have turrets, giving extra space & character. The staff, Laura & Maureen, were extremely friendly. They remembered our names and...

We held our June wedding on the deck - ceremony at the gazebo, cocktail hour on the adorable front porch and reception under the tent on the oh-so-romantic deck. The atmosphere is beautiful and welcoming, the food was absolutely delicious, and the service was wonderful. Laura and her staff ran our day seamlessly and made all of our guests feel... More

I have to share that I have vacationed many places on Cape Ann and found this Inn to be a hidden gem for sure. The staff are warm, inviting and go out of their way to be helpful. I was most impressed that you are welcomed by name...a comforting touch. The chef and his wait staff take care of your... More
