Our family stayed, for the second year in a row, at a wonderful bed and breakfast in Boston (Brookline). The Bertram Inn is a beautiful, old mansion, with exquisite rooms and furnishings, a fabulous breakfast (no fast-food; it is cooked, each morning, from scratch) and attentive staff, who can even get you tickets to the Red Sox and other sporting...

All hotels were booked in Boston, where a colleague and I went on a 2 day/1 night business trip. But we found this gem, a lovely B&B perfect for business or leisure. The rooms where comfortable with excellent bedding and shower. The welcome and service was outstanding: they agreed to receive our many boxes of materials for our event, and... More

This place is so comfortable. You are welcomed like family. There are snacks out all day and the breakfasts are great. The location makes it easy to get around by T or car. Great choice. I'm a repeat visitor. It's my home base when I'm in Boston.

I stayed here with my son (in a separate room) in January 2012. We were impressed right from the first moment after our arrival. My room was gorgeous and my son's was lovely too. There is a lovely sitting room where we met up with local friends who were meeting us for dinner (our friends actually arrived before we did... More

We booked this for the appeal of a smaller, more friendly hotel. Upon arrival we were told that Room 5 had no en suite, and whilst in the small print it said this was the case, for $681 for three nights it hadn't occurred to us that you would not have this as standard. The room itself was in need... More

While in Boston for 3 weeks, I had the pleasure of staying at the Bertram Inn as well as the Samuel Sewall Inn due to a mistake made by my department's secretary. I moved between rooms quite a number of times during my stay and as a result, I was able to see a great number of rooms during this... More

Have been staying here for a decade. Everything about this place is wonderful from beds to breakfast. Staff is accommodating and friendly. Very comfortable sitting room, porch and deck. Close (1block) to T, can walk to Boston if you desire (1 hour). Snacks available all day, major newspapers delivered daily. Less than 20 min to the Pike.

We discovered The Bertram Inn in March of 2013 and have stayed there four times in 3 different rooms (our favorite is the 3rd Floor aerie). It is charming, cozy and so convenient to the "T" Stop. And Brookline has great shops and restaurants that are all within walking distance from The Bertram. We have family in Boston and travel... More

I spent only one night at this delightful Bed and Breakfast, but wish I could have stayed longer. The staff is cordial and helpful, and the decor is charming. Snacks and baked items are available all day, and breakfast included a hot breakfast casserole, fresh fruit, yogurt, an assortment of baked goods, and cereals. I returned to the inn after... More
