We have family who live nearby so we have been staying at this B&B at least once a year for several years now. It's a great place to stay all around! It's a beautiful old house which is clean, quiet and comfortable. The hosts are super friendly and accommodating and treat us like family. The breakfast is good and the... More

The room was comfortable and quiet. Luckily I did not have to share the bathroom. Breakfast was another story. The 'variety of artisanal baked goods' turned out to be a loaf of French bread, possibly previously frozen, that was put out every morning. By the third day the bread was so stale it was difficult to saw through. The orange... More

We had a wonderful visit to Ditmas Park in Brooklyn. The accommodations were comfortable, clean, and in a fantastic neighborhood on a beautiful tree lined street. Located close to great restaurants, Prospect Park, and convenient to the subway. Sue and Michael made us feel right at home and provided us with useful information to make our stay extra special.

I visited my son (who lives in Brooklyn) during the Flatbush Art Walk. Sue and Michael couldn't have been more gracious hosts, and Sue is quite the artist! I parked the car right there on the street, and never got in it again until it was time to go home. This B&B is in a terrific location! Close to wonderful... More

Having said the above.....my stay at Rugby Gardens was wonderful also because of the place. You entered the house and felt the sense of calm. The rooms are on the second floor so nicely secluded and beautifully decorated for that authentic taste of a Victorian home. This is a nice ending after walking the peaceful, treelined streets and come to... More

Rugby Gardens Bed & Breakfast offers a unique experience for visitors to New York -- specifically Brooklyn. Tucked away in Ditmas Park, which mixes large Victorian homes and multi-unit apartment complexes, the B&B is situated in a neighborhood that looks unlike most congested New York neighborhoods. That said, it has its own blend of races, class, commerce, community, etc. Sue... More

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful and clean B&B. A family of four, we booked both rooms upstairs and therefore were the only guests, with our own floor. Sue and Michael gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel at home right away. They gave us lots of tips for our NYC visit and provided... More

I arrived later than I had planned and was warmly welcomed even as I disturbed my hosts sleep. Rugby Gardens is on a beautiful tree-lined street and is a very short walk from Cortelyou Street with it's restaurants and shops. Sue and Michael were gracious hosts and offered helpful suggestions on things to do and see in their beautiful neighbourhood.... More

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
