Stayed in 8 different places in the U.S. During our 4 week trip and this was the one we liked the least. Compared to th Esther's it was mid price range and it did not live up to its online description.

This place is not as quaint and wonderful as the reviews say. For starters, the beds were hard as bricks, it was super quiet and almost eerie to be in there. The Rooms are cold, breakfast mediocre, and location is super inconvenient from town. It is nice that they left cookies on your bed during turn down service, but sadly... More

My family and I recently spent the weekend at Castle Manor Inn. It was our first time staying there, but will not be our last. From the moment we checked in, every effort was made by the entire staff to make our stay enjoyable. Laura and Don go above and beyond to make their inn special, from the clean spacious... More

First time my family has stayed at Castle Manor Inn. Very enjoyable experience in every way. Owners Laura and Don were absolutely fantastic and go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. Thought about dining at one of the many restaurants in Gloucester, but decided to try Seaglass Restaurant on the property. Can't say enough about our dinner. Probably... More

My family and I take a trip every year to Gloucester as a Christmas tradition. We have stayed at other places but Castle Manor Inn is beautiful. The rooms are very well decorated and clean, the staff is inviting and make you feel like family and the food is unbelievable!!! We will without a doubt be booking future stays with... More

Can't say enough good things about our experience at The Castle Manor Inn. We were there to dine, were treated like royalty (which we are, of course) and the food and service were superb. Great conversation with the proprietors, as well. Highly Recommended! Thanks, Laura and Don! Brett Coty Lucinda Seigel

My wife and I stayed at the Castle Manor Inn on November 8th, 2014. We found the inn while looking on the internet for a place to stay in Gloucester. The property is comprised of three sets of buildings. The main inn which was a grand home built in 1900 and then two strip style motel units that flank the... More

I visited this venue 3 years ago and knew it would be perfect for our reunion event held this past weekend. When we arrived, the Inn was tastefully decorated for the holidays - there was a beautiful beach themed tree in the lobby; the mantels had beautiful holiday greens and flowers; the dining tables and our rooms had fresh flowers....

I showed up on a cold rainy day at the beginning of October. They put me in the west wing and then couldn't give me a straight answer for several hours as to why the room wouldn't heat up. Finally ended up with a small electric heater (part of the room) being fired up when I got back from dinner,... More

We had to find accomodations as close as possible to Salem since all rooms in Salem were booked. The Castle Manor Inn was available & we decided to book 2 rooms - 1 for ourselves & another for a 2nd couple. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived before checkin time & they were able to accomodate us. We were... More
