When you book here, please remember you are staying in a historic house. Rooms are small, but have everything necessary. Sloped floors upstairs and creaky. Quaint shuttered windows. This inn is perfect though for a couple day stay in Portsmouth to enjoy the city, as it is less expensive than the bigger hotels and the location is perfect for walking... More

My family of four spent a night at this delightful B&B last week and I can't say enough about the charming and very comfortable accommodations, the yummy homemade breakfast muffins (REAL muffins, not the overly sugary hunks of cake that pass for muffins today), and Sally, who has mastered the art of making her guests feel welcome and well taken...

We have stayed here before and once again had a great time. Sally was so nice and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. What we like best is the Inn has a back in time old Portsmouth feel but very well taken care of and Clean! Location does not get any better as you can walk... More

We found this B&B online while traveling, and Sally was able to accommodate us within the hour. Building and furniture are old which is to be expected in a historic home, but the ambiance and the AMAZING breakfast made it a wonderful stay. Very comfortable bed but tiny little bathroom (room 7 upstairs). Sally has hospitality nailed!

We have stayed at the Inn at Strawbery Banke many, many times and have enjoyed every minute. In fact, if we can't get a room, we change our plans - that's how much we love the place. It's literally on the boundary of Strawbery Banke, very close to Prescott Park and the downtown and an ideal place to have as... More

Overpriced. On one side of the bed there was very little space and there was no bedside table or lamp so I could not read in bed. The standard lamp did not work. Quite a good location and a friendly welcome.

We chose this b&b because of where it is located. The room was quite small and it was a little loud, for the reason of our room was on a street side. The breakfast was very good and Sally the host was helpful on everything that we asked her about. A little bit of some touch up work could be... More

Booked in for one night but the place was so welcoming and comfortable that I had to stay another. Breakfast was amazing, different, homemade, menu every morning. Excellent sourdough pancakes! Room was very clean, bed extremely comfortable, and all very picturesque. If I every get the chance to visit New England again I won't hesitate to book in. A great... More

My husband and I just celebrated our 13th anniversary. We choose to celebrate our special day by staying the weekend in Portsmouth. The Inn at Strawberry Banke has the perfect location. This house is 200 years old. We loved its charm and simplicity. The sour dough blueberry pancakes were delicious! We will be back. Thank you Sally and staff.

Great location for walking to downtown and Strawberry Banke. Sally is an excellent innkeeper and is also a great cook. This is a quaint old inn, so don't expect otherwise, which is reflected in the range of opinions given here. This is always my first choice if staying in this area.
