This is not a quaint inn, but a fine smallish updated hotel in what I gather is an old inn building. (There's another review here that upbraids the management for renovating the place.) But that was fine with me. My room had a comfortable bed, large spotless bathroom with lots of marble, soft carpet and working flat-screen television with lots... More

Having read many positive reviews on trip advisor, my husband and I chose to stay at the Lyme Inn the night before picking our kids up from camp. We have been very disappointed. When we drove into the Inn we noticed there was only one other car in the parking lot. When we checked in the manager Jack was friendly... More

On an over night trip with my husband for my birthday and I picked this spot for this B&B. So glad I did as it was all I had hoped for. As soon as we checked in with Kate we felt right at home. The room (323) was clean and roomy and I loved the corner chair near the window... More

We had not been here for many years. Our meal was superb, service top notch and we were entertained by two very different and talented bands. Our friends enjoyed it as much as we did. Will go again soon!

I recently attended a week long class at King Arthur Education Center in Norwich, VT. When looking for accommodations, my criteria was simple; clean, comfortable and reasonably close by. All goals were not only met, but surpassed. My room was spotless, bright, very nice comfortable furnishings, and fresh cozy linens, towels and robe. The restaurant was open for dinner three... More

We stayed at the Lyme Inn the last two weekends and the stay could not have been better. Their new pricing is highly competitive with the two top hotels in Hanover. The addition of their new Chef Tony is a welcome addition. We had a total of 2 dinners and 3 breakfasts during the last two stays. The menu is... More

We were greeted by smiling faces, clean inviting rooms, large cold martinis, and excellent food. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our early morning schedule, opening early in the restaurant. Dan and Bruce made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We will be back for sure.

We needed to be near Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for early morning appointments twice this past week so we decided to overnight close by rather than make the 2 hour drive down from northern Vermont . On our first visit we stayed in room 26 which was on the front of the inn overlooking the historic center of the picture postcard... More

As we walked through the door our eyes were delighted in what we saw. I opened the front door to a lovely entrance to the front desk. Where a smiling face was waiting to greet us. Bill was our first encounter at the Lyme Inn. A quick check in process and then off to our room. Wow expectations met doubled,... More
