We rented a couple of rooms for a night on New Year's Eve and everyone there was so friendly and the place was beautiful. In the morning they cooked us breakfast and it was amazing it was some of the best bacon I've ever had. Will definitely visit adain

The Inn by the Bandstand is doing everything right! What an elegant - and yet, comfortable - experience. Warm and generous hosts, exquisite furnishings, delicious and thoughtful breakfast. We stayed in The Phillips Suite, and enjoyed complimentary port, in-room. The fireplace was warm and pristine, and I relaxed in the large tub with Jacuzzi jets. You cannot beat the location!...

My wife and I stayed for two nights in February at the Inn by the Bandstand. Jaimie is a tremendous host, and helps to make the experience amazing. The inn is both beautiful and historic, situated in the middle of town. From the beautiful rooms, to an incredible breakfast, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This was our second time staying...

After all the other glowing reviews, what can we add that has not already been said? The inn is amazing. Beautifully restored building with charming ambiance. We were blown away by the hosts' warm hospitality. Since it was low season, they upgraded us to the Adams suite, which was a perfect blend of historical detail and modern comfort. We loved... More

My husband and I stayed at the inn for two nights in early December. The inn was beautifully and tastefully decorated for Christmas. Our room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. The innkeepers are wonderful! They made dinner recommendations and reservations for us, shared some stories with us, provided wine glasses and utensils for our private happy hour,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for three nights while visiting a relative. The Inn is lovely, beautifully and tastefully decorated. But the decor is exceeded by the amazing service and care given by Jaime. Fabulous breakfast, excellent recommendations. Jaime is just the right amount of helpful and attentive. We've stayed at luxury hotels around the world; we... More

My wife and I wanted somewhere memorable to celebrate our anniversary. The Inn By The Bandstand in Exeter did not disappoint us. The room was full of character with wooden beams and fireplace. The breakfast each morning was excellently prepared and exceeded our expectations. When I made the reservation I was asked if there was any special meal requests. The... More

We went out of our way on a week long trip through New England to stay at this inn. We were not disappointed. We were especially surprised when there was a message on our cell phone letting us know that our room was ready at noon and we could arrive early if we wished. Unfortunately travel took longer than anticipated... More
