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

We recently spent three days in Brooklyn, at the lovely Rugby Gardens B&B. This 1900 Victorian has been remodeled and decorated in a fabulous, quirky, creative way, blending an abundance of family heirlooms with Art Deco and Asian influences. Owner, Sue Fishkin, is an Artist and professional Designer (Rooms About You) with impeccable taste. She, with husband, Michael Hurwitz provide... More

Spent another Labor Day weekend at Rugby Gardens B&B, our favorite place to stay in NYC. A quiet, well-kept neighborhood with plenty of on-street parking; easy access to all of the city via the Q train, just a block away; comfortable rooms with all the amenities (we especially appreciated the air conditioning over this hot weekend; a marvelously maintained turn-of-the-century...
