Rugby Gardens is only 2 walking minutes away from Cortelyou station of the Q-Line, which brings you in about 25 minutes to Union Square (Manhattan) or Coney Island Beach respectively. It is a lovely (victorian style) place with lovely hosts and provides a calm, friendly and peaceful atmosphere. Sue and Michael (with Ruby, the cute little dog) are very friendly... More

It was such a pleasure to host your trip! Interesting to have so many things and people in common without even knowing prior to our morning conversations! We hope you'll consider staying here with us again next tome you come to Brooklyn/New York for a visit! Sue & Michael More

I felt a little weird about just walking into somebody else's house, but our hosts really went out of their way to be friendly and welcoming. Very comfortable room, wonderful breakfasts, cute little dog, and really convenient for seeing Brooklyn and getting to the subway.

Rugby Gardens was the perfect place for us. The neighborhood is a delight for walking, for dining, and only five minutes from the subway. Michael and Sue are terrific hosts; the room comfortable and the breakfast delicious

We very much enjoyed our stay at Rugby Gardens. Conveniently located on a sycamore-lined street that reminds you of a small town in mid-America, it is easy walking distance to the subway and many fine restuarants. Our room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our daily visits with Sue, Michael and Max. We plan to stay there again the next... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rugby Gardens this past weekend. Rugby Gardens provides clean and comfortable accommodations in a quaint Brooklyn neighborhood, and we appreciated the warm hospitality of Michael, Sue and Max. Our daughter moved to Brooklyn last summer. We we chose Rugby Gardens because it is close to her apartment. It was nice to be able to... More

In recent years we have spent an inordinate amount of time in hotels in Asia and America. The routines are familiar, and generally we find places good enough. Thus we were delighted to find this little gem of a home stay in the heart of Brooklyn. Sue and Michael are very caring hosts, and struck the perfect balance between helpfully... More

Though the hosts were charming and helpful, and the neighbourhood convenient and interesting, Rugby Gardens felt more like an Air B+B than a professional B+B. Sue and Michael may not realise that the disorderly porch and front room create a poor first impression. The radiator in my room made a lot of noise, but gave off almost no heat. The... More
