My wife and I have stayed at this hotel three times and I can see us staying thirty more. Wandering the halls, reading the guestbooks with their incredible stories, exploring the rooms and all detail that goes into them. Then just lazily reading throughout the day. The staff is wonderful, the food is a delight and the entire experience is... More

This is the first time we've stayed here, and we'd heard so much about it. We loved: 1. The meals (we had 2 dinners as well as 3 breakfasts here.) You're in table groups of 8, and at dinner are encouraged to play "Two Truths and a Lie" with your table mates. It was a lot of fun, and kept... More

I've been going to the Sylvia Beach Hotel for many years, and it's a great place to read, do quiet projects, and reflect. I've just returned from three nights. I stayed in the Shakespeare room one night and the J.K. Rowling room two nights. The Shakespeare room is roomier, and I really enjoyed it. But, I'm a long-time fan of... More

We had a disappointing experience. Got there shortly before dinner and went up to the library. No fire in the fireplace, no spiced wine, no anything. Just cold and dark and we were totally ignored. No Christmas decorations even though there in mid-december. There was junk sitting around. The desk personnel were totally unhelpful and not service oriented. Been here... More

This unique hotel is unlike any other - it is a true "getaway," with no phones, wifi or television. What it does have in abundance is atmosphere, a fabulous library where guests have full access to all the books and where spiced wine is served every evening. The gourmet breakfast is included, and reservations are recommended for dinner. Every one... More

Driving through, discovered the Hotel... simply wonderful. My husband went into shock for a short while when he discovered they have no TV, or WiFi.. but he ended up loving our stay. Beautiful location overlooking the Ocean, and the breakfast was great. Would love to see some coffee in the Lobby area for those of us that have a difficult... More

This restored 1910 building is an oasis for book lovers. Each room is themed for an author with many tastes to choose from. Our room had a wonderful view of the beach and a balcony to sit and enjoy the view as well as wall to wall windows. The living room on 3rd floor is great for reading and looking... More

Loved the author themed rooms, especially the way they leave the unoccupied rooms open for you to enjoy touring. Breakfast was wonderful and staff quite helpful and courteous. It is not for everyone and in places a bit worn, but that adds to the experience. The gift shop is fun but would have liked a few more clothing souvenirs, particularly... More

I had the great fortune to spend two nights at this charming hotel recently after getting engaged. I am an avid reader and my fiancee is a writer so this seemed like the perfect choice for us. We stayed in the J.K. Rowling room, and while I would not recommend it for most couples (as this room has only a... More

If your idea of a great hotel is flat-screen TVs, iPhone docks and free wi-fi, please do go elsewhere. This quaint, quiet B&B is for those of us who deeply appreciate books, authors, quirky finds around every corner and convivial conversation with guests from around the world. The rooms are named for and lovingly reflect works of individual authors down... More
