“Excellent Overnight Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We had just one night to spend in Chatham and the Bradford Inn was perfect for us. Great location in the center of town so we could walk everywhere, and close to shops and restaurants. The staff was great and the room lovely and very up to date. We would definitely stay there again.

arrived from boston in the rental mustang for four nights before carrying on to New York, what a joy. the room was absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. the only thing lacking is tea and coffee making facilities in the room but these are available to help yourself at reception.everything was spotless and the continental breakfast was lovely, especially the home made blueberry cake!the hotel is in an excellent position for walking around the town, which is extremely pretty. lots of good restaurants and coffee houses, try the burgers at "the red nun" theyre very good, also "the impudent oyster" is worth a visit if you want to treat yourselves (you will need to book though).would certainly stay here again.

We arrived at the Bradford Inn early for our eight night stay and we were pleased that our room was available for us to unpack and have time to have a stroll around this lovely town. The room was in the Chatsfield House on the first floor, it was lovely and quiet and we were not disturbed by other guests. It was a large room with two comfy chairs, super king sized bed and a large bathroom. We had a balcony with views out towards Oyster Bay. The room was spotlessly clean and it was serviced daily with clean towels and clean bedding every other day. The breakfast was continental, although on two of the days there was a choice of hot food such as scrambled egggs, bacon, sausages and pancakes although we found the continental breakfast adequate for our needs. We found the staff extremely helpful and friendly and we would certainly stay there again if we holiday again in Chatham. The only thing that we would have preferred would be to have tea and coffee making facilities in our room rather than the complimentary tea and coffee provided in the reception area, this would have been helpful on a morning and bedtime when we like to have a hot drink. However, this wouldn't deter us in any way from staying here again.

Room Tip: I think we paid full price for a larger room which some people may find expensive however, we found...

I have just returned to Scotland with my wife after two weeks in New England,three days of which were spent in Chatham.This was our fifth visit to the area and our second to Chatham.The location of the Bradford Inn is perfect,500 yards from main street and the rooms are large,clean,and extremely comfortable.The staff are a delight and those at reception could not be kinder or more helpfull.Thank you Kristen and to your colleague whose name i did not catch.You made our stay most enjoyable and i would heartily reccommend the Bradford Inn to anyone.
We shall return!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: If you have any disability bear in mind many of the rooms are upstairs with no lift.

My husband and I have stayed at The Bradford Inn of Chatham on a number of occasions and we keep returning to the Inn whenever we're at the Cape. The staff are always welcoming and accommodating. The rooms are clean. Some rooms are nicer than others. We were there a couple of weekends ago and we had a lovely room with a gas fireplace and sitting room which was great because of the rainy and cold weather that weekend. The TV's are small and I would like to see them replaced with larger TV's in the rooms. They offer a continental breakfast which is adequate. It's a short walk to Main Street to all the shops and restaurants. Considering the price we've paid at other places that were less than mediocre, I would definitely recommend The Bradford Inn.

Room Tip: The rooms by the pool are sunny and bright especially the larger rooms that have a sitting room with...

Just returned from a four day stay on the Cape at the Bradford Inn. It is off season still and the Inn and the town were fairly quiet. The Inn is a compound of sorts with about 8 building on the property. While this does promote some more privacy than a normal Inn might have, it also reduces some of the charm of staying at a small new England Inn. This is more like a small hotel. The staff were friendly and efficient and the rooms and grounds were well kept. The room we booked had a king size bed , which was nice, but only one chair, which was a bit odd. One of us could sit in a chair , the other had to sit on the bed. When asked about this we were told we could have a room with 2 chairs but it would cost more. So the basic rooms have only one chair. The workout room had 1 treadmill, one elliptical, and one bike and some dumbbells and doesn't open up until 8am, so if your planning on some early morning workouts, your out of luck and with so few machines you'll probably be waiting in line. The outdoor pool was nice looking, we didn't use it this time but water seemed warm and clean. It has free wi fi which worked well during the stay. Breakfast as mentioned by others was quite ordinary, if not disappointing. A few choices of cold cereal, same each day, some fruit, English muffins or toast ,yogurt, coffee cake, orange and cranberry juice, coffee or tea. Very plain spread compared to other Inns we have stayed at, but bearable. I would suggest adding a few bucks to the rooms, if necessary, and add some bagels, muffins, hot cereal etc. It would make a better impression.
The Inn is right in town so it is easy to walk to anywhere to shop or eat, the location is great. The rooms were very clean and well kept and other than the small matters mentioned above, overall a nice place to stay in Chatham.

Recently visited Chatham as a getaway gift to my sister for her 60th Birthday. We had fun exploring the north shore along route 6A. We continued all the way out to Provincetown for several hours before overnighting in Chatham. You might wonder about the title of this review. There was a public art display in the town center called "Sharks in the Park". They had over 30 had painted 6 foot wooden sharks on display. Each was uniquely decorated. It was fun to view the various different creative interpretations. We stayed at the Bradford Inn which was a very good choice. Everything you would expect of a charming Nw England Inn. Easy walking into town. Overnight rooms were in several detached buildings which added privacy. Our room was well appointed and well kept up. No hot breakfast, but a generous continental started our day.
