“Wonderful experience, time after time. The only place to stay in Chatham.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Every stay has been a pleasant one. We'll be back again soon for the respite and rejuvenation we get each time we stay. The rooms are always clean, and the service is superb. The continental breakfast is a perfect was to begin the day. The Bradford is my absolute favorite New England get away location.

The Bradford Inn is spread out over several very charming buildings each with about 4 rooms. Just off the main street where you will find great places to eat eg The Captins Table, Impudent Oyster.
The rooms at the Inn are all different, very clean, and comfortable. The staff are very helpful and recommend places for us to visit during our stay. The continental breakfast is a bit minimal and does not have a lot a variity. We highly recommend the Bradford Inn for the central location the great rooms and staff who go that little bit extra to make your stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony are great to sit out on. Rooms with a fire place.

Stayed 2 nights with a friend. chose the Bradford as they a room with 2 beds. The Bradford is comfortable, clean, centrally located and quiet. Really friendly. Good place to stay.if visiting Chatham. Breakfast minimal but fresh and on time.

Room Tip: We were in the carriage house which had a balcony and view of the pool.

We have been staying at the Bradford Inn for the past few years. We try to go right after labor day as the weather is still good and the crowds are usually gone. We love the location, right off main street, the Inn is quiet and spread out over a few charming buildings resembling a small village. The pool is heated and peaceful, the breakfast is a little more than a basic continental with a hot option each day. The staff is wonderful. The first room we had this time was beautiful, however the sun woke us up a little too early. They went out of their way to put us in another room that didn't face the morning sun. The rooms are all a little different, some with fireplaces, balconies, or sitting areas. The staff is helpful in assisting you with the right fit for a room. We would highly recommend the Bradford for the location, decor, staff, peacefulness and all around experience.

We have been staying at the Bradford Inn for a number of years. We always go there for a mini-vaca over the Thanksgiving holiday. We alway stay in the Carriage House on the property. It is very romantic with its gas fireplace. A continental breafase is offered each morning in the small dining room.

The hostesses are gracious, helpful with reservations, extra towels and home-made cookies.

We eat at the Wild Goose for Thanksgiving, at DelMar Restaurant the night before and the Chatham Bars Inn the next night. All delicious!

We try to get to the Cape a few times in the late spring and summer. This is one of our favorite places to stay. Quiet, great location, close to the beaches, lovely décor and wonderful staff. We have been going there for a number of years and will continue to as long as possible.

p.s. if you're an early riser and the breakfast and coffee isn't available yet,- ( opens between 8 and 8:30) it's a 3 minute walk to a wonderful shop that opens quite early.

Returned to the Bradford Inn after many years away. THought the dramatic increase in cost were just an indication of inflation through the years and going in the highest demand season. WRONG!
The entire place has been upgraded to really pleasant and much higher standards. These rooms are more like efficiencies ( sans kitchens) with very nice breakfast offerings and environment. We had a great weekend at this inn located in the middle of Chatham Center - best town on teh Cape.
