“Wonderful Bed and Breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2009

For the second year in a row my daughter and I stayed at the Penrose Inn. The Inn is clean and beautiful and the owners are very kind and helpful. The location is great, just a few minutes from Northampton and not very far from I-91. I've stayed at other B&Bs but this is my favorite.

Cleanliness:
The rooms and bathroom were cleaned in the morning. There were three dogs, but they were always kept away from the guests unless the guest asked to play with the dogs (which I did). The dogs were all very friendly.
Pros:
-very clean
Cons:
-none

Service:
The inn keepers were extremely nice and talkative. They made excellent breakfasts. One day we had a three course breakfast: a platter of fruit, followed by bagels, followed by personalized omelets. The next day we a fruit and yogurt goblet with delicious french toast and warm syrup. All the while, we were served on fancy dishes from England.
Pros:
-tasty breakfast
-friendly inn keepers
Cons:
-none

Location:
Haydenville is kinda far from anyplace, could not walk to a restaurant. Cellphone reception is pretty poor. It is fifteen minutes from NorthHampton, so that was nice.
Pros:
-small town, good for walking
Cons:
-no cell reception
-had to travel to get to places

Value:
WOW!!! Cheaper than the hotels in NorthHampton, yet much better. Gave a delicious breakfast, cleaner rooms, more comfortable beds!!!

Rooms:
Beautiful. All had comfortable beds and were kept meticulously clean (animals not allowed in guest rooms). The bathrooms were all very nice with showers.
Pros:
-clean
-comfortable
-random knick-knacks added interest
Cons:
-attic room's sloping ceiling meant having to duck sometimes

Overall:
Pros:
-kind service
-conscientious (asked about all allergies and feelings towards pets)
-beautiful inn and decor
-delicious breakfast!!!!!!!!!
-ample parking
-friendly inn keepers
-comfortable rooms, spacious

Cons:
-not close to main city (North Hampton)
-no cell reception
-sloping ceilings only for attic room

I recently stayed at the Penrose with my wife.You will be greeted at the inn by three dogs a cat and a bird and a large spider in a cage. We were put in the bridal room. Well the bridal room has to mannequins dressed in bridal dresses with tiaras without Heads. The Inn is really just someones house. Inn keepers are nice but to friendly. The place is perfect if you want to stay in part zoo part someones house.
