We arrived about 6 pm and Kimberly met us and helped us with things we needed to know. She was so friendly and gave us excellent recommendations. We were lucky to meet Jamie in the morning and we had a chance to thank him for all his help over the phone and via email. We can't wait to return! We... More

We stayed 1 night but should have stayed longer. The Web site is wonderful. You really see each room, so can choose exactly what you like. Rooms are large, well decorated, air-conditionef, with comfortable beds. Staff is friendly & very helpful. Breakfast of blueberry pancakes with bacon was great. Great alternative to a hotel.

We took him up on his offer for dinner reservations and a massage and he booked them on our behalf, with the masseuse coming to the Inn. When traffic put... More

My family and I spent three nights at the Inn by the Bandstand and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Everything was impeccable, from rooms to breakfast and the welcome could not have been kinder. We booked a suite which would accomodate the 5 of us (2 adults, 3 children) and on arrival Kimmie allocated us two rooms (a... More

My husband and I just had a wonderful stay at the Inn by the Bandstand. Jaime, Agostinho, and Kimmie went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant and enjoyable as possible! The rooms are very clean, comfortable, and decorated very elegantly. Breakfast was nicely prepared and the presentation and atmosphere were excellent. I highly recommend staying here... More

Our family stayed here for a weekend wedding. This Inn has been lovingly and beautifully restored. Very comfortable, spacious rooms with everything you need as a traveler. The owners and staff treat you like a guest in their home and want to help you with whatever you may need. Breakfast is so delicious you wish they served dinner! We enjoyed... More

i visited Exeter to attend a wedding over the 4th of July and my hostess suggested I stay at Inn by the Bandstand. The room was comfortable, had everything I needed and more (toiletries, wetbar, refrigerator, flashlight, robe, slippers, iron, desk and decent lighting to work, tv for downtime, and a good bed). Morning breakfast was top of the line.... More

We were looking for a quiet get away weekend and we found the perfect place here at the inn by the bandstand. Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast each morning was a delight and we also enjoyed the patio area with its pretty flowers and fireplace. The inn takes you back in history with all its glory.... More
