Visited on a busy Saturday - 3 weddings plus at least two other functions but the service was good and the food was excellent. Good portions that were value for money. The menu was varied and there was plenty for the kids to choose.

Beautifull area and main building with lovely historic interiour. The food is good and tasty old fashioned New England food. Our waiter Charlie (or was it Charles) was very competent, friendly with a very personal touch. The receptionist who met us on check in on August 7th was very helpfull and friendly. We stayed in the country lodge and the... More

We stayed two nights at The Publick House to get away from Boston and see off the beaten path areas of Massachusetts. The Publick House has beautiful grounds and enjoyed the old historic part of the inn. We stayed in the motel units and our room was large. The carpet and bathroom needs to be updated but it was clean... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Publick House Country Cottages for a number of years. The cottages are part of a former chain motel located adjacent to the Publick House property that were acquired by this business. The rooms are absolutely huge with two double beds and plenty of space. Each room also has a private balcony, which... More

Stayed on second floor, motel type building set in the back of the area of the grounds. Room was spacious. 2 queen beds, nice bathroom, overlooking the outdoor pool. Outside balcony was not to clean. Bird feces everywhere, even on the chairs. Restaurant and Bakery was outstanding. Good place to stay for a couple of nights for $125 a night.... More

I honestly do not know where to start. My rehearsal dinner and wedding was held at the Publick House in the beginning of July. The staff is simply amazing! The food was amazing! All of my family and friends had the chance to spend two full days at the Publick House using the facility. It was so nice to have... More

Having made dinner reservations for our anniversary we opted to stay at the Inn for the evening. After checking with an internet booking co for their price I asked to see if the Inn would honor that price which they gladly did. When I mentioned it was our 30th anniversary the next day and were dining at the restaurant the... More

A group of cousins of all ages from several states met for a family Reunion in Sturbridge. We stayed in the motor lodge portion of the Inn up the hill. All of our rooms were in one section of the motel - which made communication really easy and fun. This is an older motel, but it was very clean, quiet... More

My wife and I are recently back from another stay at the Publick House in Sturbridge MA. If you have not been here you must stay here if in this area, you will love it. We had a room in the Chamberlain House that makes you feel like you are in your own living room, very spacious and well appointed.... More

What a waste of time to book in advance at this hotel. A couple in front of me was able to get their room in the nicer part of the hotel for only $100. I paid more to stay in the loved, which is less nice than the historical part and was not offered a credit so that my cost... More
