“Bravo Hob Knob”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The Hob Knob is absolutely stunning, charming, and has timeless elegance but above all what really impressed us was the service. The staff really went the extra mile to help us whether it was accommodating our breakfast choice, to recommending -and booking!-a special place for dinner and to helping us with the bikes. The breakfast was full of healthy and fresh options and they also served wonderful homemade delicious pastries and drinks for tea served in beautiful English china. The location was key as it allowed us to walk everywhere.We highly recommend it and we will be back

Charming decor.
Amazing food (have the scones every day).
Exceptional, accommodating service.
PERFECT location (delightful walk to downtown and the water)
When all your needs and wants are exceeded, why stay anywhere else? I would love to come back and take advantage of all the things Hob Knob has to offer!! The personalized service is where it's at!!

We liked the Hob Knob but felt it was expensive for what it was. It is a typical New England Inn, comfortable with old fashioned slightly chintzy design and Victorian nick knacks. It was very similar to Inns we stayed in in Vermont, the only difference being the price, 550 US $ a night when other Inns of this calibre charge nearer 350 US $. I suppose the high price was due to being in Edgartown but it was more expensive to than other Edgartown Inns (which were all full when we tried to book). The service was good as was the breakfast but it was on the busy main road into the town, it was'nt in the centre but a short walk out. Would I recommend it? Yes, if you are not on a budget. If it had been 200 $ cheaper I would recommend it out of hand, as it was it cost us more than staying in a smart hotel in Central Manhatten. The Spa consisted of a couple of exercise machines in the basement and a sauna. The housekeeping was good except for one day when they forgot to replace the shampoos and clean the bath.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back will be quieter, rooms at front look over a busy road

We had read about the Hob Knob last Spring and booked a room as soon as we could find a free weekend and ferry tickets (taking the car is essential in Martha's Vineyard). Twice we had to cancel (raincheck policy) due to bad weather until finally we made it there last weekend. IT WAS WORTH THE EFFORT to keep trying! Diane, the Manager is greatly experienced as an operator and the night manager (we might have just given him a promotion), Michael, knowledgable and interested in every guest's satisfaction. Service being the second most important thing in our travels, the charm of each staff member we encountered ran neck 'n neck with the charm of the Inn. Most importantly, cleanliness and addition to detail….Hob Knob was meticulous, well appointed and actually "shined"! Within a few steps of town and yet quiet in the garden patio for a wonderful breakfast, we are anxious to return as soon as we can.

Room Tip: A room on the back, away from the street…perhaps the top floor, where the ceiling is higher giving...

My daughter and I first visited Edgartown 10 years ago with friends and fell in love with this charming hotel with its beautiful setting, delicious breakfasts (the homemade, fruit scones were my daughter's favorite), comfy beds and cheerful staff. So booking our stay at The Hob Knob was first on our list when planning a trip back to the vineyard for this summer's Fourth of July celebration.
Happily it was as beautiful a place as we remembered. The staff was great with suggestions for bike riding, historical walks, farm to table dining and notable shops. Our pretty room was spotless and the bedding heavenly. Our first stop every morning was the quintessential wrap-around porch for coffee and the morning paper followed by the delicious homemade breakfast. The location is prime and we had front-row seating for the vineyard's annual parade. We definitely won't be waiting another ten years before returning to this island oasis of charm and relaxation!

I would highly recommend the Hob Knob in Edgartown! The room was fantastic, the gardens were beautiful and the food was delicious. The staff made every effort to make us happy and their efforts were successful. The bikes were a great way to get to know the island and the staff was helpful in planning routes and sites to see.

This was our first trip to the northeast and we had a great time. We arrived mid-week and left on Saturday morning. Unfortunately we hit the first week of the in-season, so the rates were higher. The number of Edgartown visitors was noticeably higher on the beginning of the weekend. My recommendation would be to visit during the week. I would be very interested to see what the off-season is like.
