My sister and I only see one another once a year, so we wanted this year to be special, and special it was! Inn by the Bandstand is not only beautiful and historic, but the wonderful staff made it exceptionally pleasant. We felt like beloved family members coming home for a visit! The warmth and kindness shown to us by... More

Regular followers of my reviews know I am picky, picky, picky. I would give Inn at the Bandstand in Exeter 10 stars if I could. The rooms are all different and charming with gas fireplaces, interesting furnishings and spotlessly clean. It is historic and lovely. There is a charming garden with flowers and sculpture. It is used by guests and... More

Our son and daughter-in-law work the summer session at Phillips Exeter Academy. We decided to stay overnight on our first visit and we were fortunate to stay at the Inn by the Bandstand. We absolutely love the accommodations for many reasons: beautiful rooms, attentive staff, comfortable mattresses and bedding, beautiful patio, and delicious breakfasts! We just completed our third stay... More

We stayed at the Inn on our wedding night in mid June-2014, in the Sheffield Suite, and many in the wedding party also stayed at the Inn. I have to say, bar none, this is the best, most friendly, most welcoming inn in which I have ever stayed in. Absolutely everything was a delight, and I have traveled all over... More

Had the pleasure of staying in the tastefully decorated, newly renovated Kensington for two nights in June and we had a wonderful stay in the beautiful Inn. The wine upon our arrival was a very nice touch. Nothing but praise for everyone there. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and on the new patio. Jamie and Agostinho are very gracious and... More

Worth every dime! Perfect location. Wonderful mattress for a full night's sleep. Elegant breakfast with string ensemble adding the finishing touch. Would definitely stay here again. Will probably request first floor room next time. The stairs are easy to go up and down but for those who don't like stairs, be sure to request first floor. Owners are very kind... More

We have been staying at the Inn for the last four years and it has never looked better as it does now under Jamie and Augustino's incredible vision. The rooms are beautiful, the food is fantastic and the revolving show of art from local painters is really remarkable. This is our favorite place to stay when visiting our son at... More

The place was awesome. The owners really know how to treat their guests. You will not find a better place in New Hampshire. Jamie and Augustino are great hosts. The breakfast was terrific and the newly renovated patio is a great place to sit and relax.
