“Perfect except for two small details”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

We were disappointed that we had to call for bottled water and that there was no coffee maker in the room. Otherwise, the junior suite was very nice (closet a little too small and awkwardly situated in the small entrance) and comfortable. It was extremely convenient to Spaulding Auditorium that can be accessed without going outdoors.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, the junior suite is excellent.

We spent one night at the Hanover Inn and can't wait to return. There was nothing about our room that we didn't like ... we were upgraded to a Junior Suite at check-in. A nice surprise for us since we were celebrating a 10 year wedding anniversary and staff was unaware of this at check-in. It was extremely comfortable and spacious. The furnishings were fabulous ... we liked that the furniture in our room was made by a local furniture maker, Pompanoosuc Mills. We even visited the Pompanoosuc Mills store in Hanover to see about purchasing some of the same pieces! Doug, in the dining room, was wondeful ... we had an incredibly delicious breakfast and he answered all our questions about the hotel's new dining room/restaurant that would be opening in a few months. We're spreading the word about how wonderful it was ... we can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Request one of the corner rooms, overlooking The Green & Main Street .... it was magical.

I guess I am old fashioned. I loved the Inn before the renovations. All the charm, ambiance and comfort of the lobby and dining rooms has been replaced with stark modern furniture and finishes which look uncomfortably out of place in Hanover. Fortunately, the staff and location are still great, but I think they ruined the building.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We appreciate the sentiment and feedback that the original Hanover Inn at Dartmouth has a place in your heart, as it does in ours. We are disheartened to learn that the renovation of our Inn did not exceed your expectation. Throughout the renovation, we aspired to combine the traditional charm of New England with some key elements to update the property to become more practical, providing a feeling of where Tradition meets Sophistication. Additionally we would like to thank you for your heartfelt compliments regarding our staff and premier address at attached to Dartmouth College and landmark location in Hanover. We certainly hope you’ll consider a future stay with us.

The renovation of an iconic Inn in Hanover New Hampsire is stunning...they have kept the charm of the old and blended it with a modern , but welcoming design..which is beautiful and well executed..... location next to Dartmouth Collegee and also adjacent to the charming shops on Main street is wonderful...best of all , we had Thaksgiving dinner there in the new small dining room...( the larger dining room is still under renovation)...absolutely delicious....there was a fireplace , a calm atmosphere and lovely service...The turkey was thickly cut and moist..., parsnips and carrots interestingly spiced, and oysters as a appetizer properly prepared...we had a great reasonably priced ottle of Orgeon Pinot Noir.....I have visited Hanover for over 30 years but the new Hanover Inn is a wonderful addidition to the area...

An awesome hotel 5 mins walk from the center of Dartmouth College. Spacious well appointed rooms, ultra modern furniture and extremely friendly staff are some of the highlights of this hotel. The breakfast we had was sumptuous . If my son goes to Dartmouth, would love to stay at this Hotel again and again.

Room Tip: I am sure all rooms are very good.

Thank you for your kind review of your stay at the Hanover Inn at Dartmouth. Situated on Main Street in Hanover, directly across from the Dartmouth Green, our recently renovated Inn is the perfect place to stay when visiting campus. We’re thrilled you had an enjoyable experience and certainly hope our Inn will become your home away from home for your future trips to Hanover, should your son decide to attend Dartmouth.

We stopped in here while visiting the area on business and boy were we sorry we didn’t book a room here. The lobby was gorgeous!!! The picture of the granite table doesn’t do it justice. The staff was extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. We were more than presently surprised by the restaurant. We were served by an attentive, but not overbearing waiter, who started by asking if I had any allergies or diet restriction. Luckily I don’t, but it was then I knew this was going to be a meal to remember. I ordered the Steak Frits which was absolutely amazing. Cooked just the way I ordered it, the steak was juicy and extremely high quality. It was served with a wonderful pesto sauce on the side and these amazing pickled onions. Pesto sauce and pickled onions sound like strong flavors, however these were soft, flavorful and clean tasting. It was served with beautifully grilled zucchini and dressed field greens that tasted extremely fresh. The French Fries were crispy and not overly greasy. My college ordered the same thing and did not stop talking about it the rest of the day. Everything here is in the details, Unsweetened Ice Tea is not only served with the traditional sugars in the box alongside, but also simple sugar, which if you drink Ice Tea means there is no fighting to get your sugar to dissolve in your tea. If you stay at the Hannover Inn make sure you don’t miss the restaurant. If you happen to be in the area and are looking for a place to eat, I would strongly recommend stopping in.

As a side note, if you are a business person you will appreciate the black napkins. They are high quality napkins which don’t leave a spot on your suit.

I visited Dartmouth on business and was booked into the Hanover Inn. This is a newly refurbished hotel, overlooking the campus. Really sleek inside, room was a good size with very comfortable bed, large TV, new bathroom. The breakfast delivered to my room was delicious! Would recommend the Hanover Inn.
