My two sons (ages 12 and 10) stayed at the Gryphon House last Monday through Thursday. We loved it. We stayed in the Sanctuary room, located down a short spiral staircase, and it was everything we could want. A third blow-up bed fit in nicely and we had more than enough room thanks to three closets and the window bench... More

This is not a stay - but just like living here, been at home in a Boston brownstone house. A business hotel can not compete with such a cosy bed & breakfast house. The rooms are all different, and with furnitures bringing you back to an early days atmosphere.

I always stay at the Gryphon House whenever I come to Boson on business, and I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. There are many reasons why I consider this to be my Boston "home", but the main reason is that the staff and the owners are all very special people who are extremely warm, friendly, helpful and accommodating- to...

We have stayed a Gryphon House several times over the last two years. It is a beautiful place, which has been lovingly restored and cared for, and the location is convenient to public transportation as well as walking in Boston and Cambridge. The breakfast is excellent. The staff is always helpful and available, making this location feel like a home... More

It's always wonderful to get a great review, but even more meaningful when it's from a return guest who is happy to be back and enjoy another stay! Thank you for taking the time to let us know everything is still up to par! We always appreciate our return guests, and look forward to your next visit with us! More

We stayed her for 2 nights to attend a college graduation. Location for the graduation and shopping, restaurants, and sight seeing was perfect. Rooms were attractive, spacious and comfortable. Staff were pleasant and very helpful and accommodating - even started breakfast earlier on the morning of graduation as most of the clients were there for the event. Breakfast was wonderful... More

The property is old and beautiful, the owners are extremely helpful and their staff is also uniformly pleasant. The Morningside room is very large and comfortable, perfect for a couple. The breakfast is very convenient and there are little amenities like tea and coffee, biscuits, fruit, etc. available all day. While it is on the street, we were there when... More

The Gryphon House is a lovely B & B, situated perfectly to take in a Red Sox game at Fenway (which was the purpose of our last Boston trip), and they offer you a discount if you are taking in a game. The house is gorgeous, high ceilings, wide hallways, and a grand staircase right off the common areas/reception. The... More

I stayed here for 4 nights to attend a conference in Copley Square. I feel lucky to have found this place. The building was architecturally beautiful with original details and large windows throughout. My room, the Victoria, felt like a studio apartment. Though it didn't have a full kitchen, there was a tea kettle, toaster, and refrigerator that I used... More

We stayed here for five nights and had a great time. Teresa and her team are very friendly and helpful and the house is lovely.

We had a superb five night stay. The Gryphon team were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. When asking for lemons for my hot water and they did not happen to have any the next day they appeared in our room and on the breakfast table. The continental was nutritious and plentiful.
