Great hospitality by all the staff. Room 4 was spacious & well appointed. Enjoyed the fireplace. A lot of convenient extras...cold water, and refreshments, racks of info on things to do. Helpful front desk staff. Convenient to downtown. Assigned parking. Breakfast promptly served, but just average...eg, waffles were tasteless. We would return.

This is the standard to which all other Inns should aspire to. Aside from the fact that its in a terrific location, both for walking into bar harbor and from driving to Acadia National Park, everything about this Inn is exceptional. Booking the room was easy and we had immediate responses to our email enquiries. We received an email before... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Primrose inn, Bar Harbour in June. We stayed in the Leffingwell Room which was a beautiful spacious room traditional decoration, with a huge comfortable bed and lovely linen. The bathroom was also a great size with quality towels. The room also had an outside veranda with rocking chairs which was a lovely... More

We stayed 3 nights. Primrose Inn is walking distance to fabulous restaurants, bike rentals, the grocery store, and laundromat. The Inn provides a group refrigerator for your specialty items, offers tea and sweets each afternoon, and provides a scrumptious breakfast. A parking space is allotted to each guest room so one is never jockeying for space. The Innkeeper and staff... More

Stayed here two nights while visiting bar harbor. It is perfectly located in town and within walking distance to everything. The room had a nice decour. This is a very charming place. It is well priced and well run. The staff was great. The breakfast was a challenge as we are vegan, but the staff was very accommodating.

My husband & I just stayed at the Primrose Inn for two nights. This was our first visit to Bar Harbor and we were very happy with our decision to stay here. The location is perfect; only a 5 minute easy walk to downtown Bar Harbor and the pier, but far enough away from the noise. We stayed in Room... More

Spent three nights at the Primrose. What a great place to rest one's head after a day walking in -and outside of Acadia National Park. Nothing there seems out of place. Melissa runs a wonderful B and B but kudos also have to go to everyone on the staff. The day always started with a breakfast my husband wishes he... More

We just spent 2 nights at the Primrose Inn in Bar Harbor, Maine. It was a wonderful experience. Conveniently located on the main road into town and is an easy walk to the waterfront, shops and restaurants. Full-service supermarket two blocks away. (Good for lunches and snacks to take to the park.) The inn is a very large, restored Victorian.... More

This Inn is absolutely wonderful. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. The entire place is spotless and the breakfast was out of this world. The bathroom had a spa tub and perfect amenities and the bed was very comfortable. The Primrose is very close to the center of town and all that Bar Harbor has to offer. It was a... More

Beautiful grounds and building. Meticulously maintained. Friendly and attentive staff. Great breakfast and afternoon snacks. Large clean rooms. Perfect location that's an easy walk to restaurants and shopping, a short drive to Arcadia park. All at a reasonable price. We were very happy with our stay and were sad to leave. We highly recommend Primrose Inn and will definitely be... More
