“Lovely vintage inn in the heart of town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This little Inn was a great find. Comfortable bed, reasonable price and we anticipate a delicious full breakfast. Inn keeper greeted us and had pre cooled our room as it was stifling hot. Our room was perfect. This is not the "W" chain of hotels. This is a quaint country Inn/ B & B. Location is unbeatable. Walk to all locations. Would stay again and recommend anyone to enjoy this little gem..

The Inn at Strawberry Banke is a wonderful historic building. If you want a modern place with all the amenities don't stay here. if you want a place with the flavor and charm of Portsmouth 100+ years ago, this is the place. Excellent location to walk all of the waterfront and downtown area, and next to the Strawberry Banke Museum. Our room was light, airy, with a good window air conditioner (oops - not like Portsmouth 100+ years ago). The bed was comfortable, and the proprietor was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was fresh fruit, and sourdough blueberry pancakes & sausage.

Room Tip: We stayed in room #4 - shower is small but adequate - obvious effort to give each room a private bat...

Located just a few blocks from the harbor, the Inn at Strawberry Bank was a quaint, romantic place to spend the night last September. It is within easy walking distance from the Strawberry Bank Museum. We enjoyed touring the city and Albacore Submarine museum. Our room at the Inn was lovely and they served a very nice breakfast in the morning.

Once again we loved staying @ the Inn @ Strawbery Bank, Sally, the innkeeper is so warm & hospitable and the Inn is so close to downtown! We parked there and walked everywhere for the weekend! The rooms were clean and well maintained. Breakfast was wonderful and Sally even had coffee ready early for us before our walk! Great place to stay whenever you head to Portsmouth!

Room Tip: Room 1 sleeps 3 adults! A plus when traveling with "the girls"!

As a Portsmouth native, recently I spent time as a tourist, in my hometown and because I wanted to be within walking distance of the town center I c hose the Inn at Strawberry Bank. My room was comfortable, also the bed was very cozy. Breakfast was great, one day fresh blueberrie pancakes, the next day an egg breakfast with wonderful fresh rapsberry muffins. Yummy..The owner was very accommodating to my requests, such as an early wakeup call and special parking. I highly recommend this Inn to anyone visiting Portsmouth..location, breakfast and owner friendly.

While the furniture may not be antique, the room was extremely comfortable, and the host couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. The breakfast was delicious, and the service was fantastic. The location couldn't be better, just a couple of blocks from downtown, the waterfront, and Strawbery Banke Museum.

The Inn is right next to Strawbery Banke and within walking distance of downtown and the waterfront. Granted, the building is old, the furnishings are not upscale and the bathrooms are tiny, but the inn keeper does her best to make sure your needs are satisfied...need ice and glasses @ 10 PM, she's there, ask for a hair dryer in the room, there's a new one when you arrive, want coffee before breakfast is served, no problem. We had a great stay over Memorial day weekend and plan to go back next year.
