“Perfect place to visit NYC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

This is our second time staying at Fort Place, and we love it. It's convenient, clean, comfortable and hassle free. Great value for money in NY. Both times we've stayed there, we got the entire second floor to ourselves - 2 bedrooms, bathroom and a breakfast room. Our 4 yr old daughter loves going there as she gets her own room. Since we drove in we could park the car in the driveway and not worry about parking.
The rooms are big and comfortable - as you would expect from a good B&B. Paul is pleasant and discreet. We enjoyed staying there both times, and will be going again next year!

Thought this place was a real gem, in terms of price and ease of travel into Manhatten. As single traveller it is not unusual to get the smallest room in the house but I had a choice of 2 great rooms. Saw Paul a couple of times during stay, he was helpful as much as I needed it...and quite accomodating with potential date changes. The neighbourhood was perfectly acceptable, house was warm (freezing outside), I cancelled the breakfast simply to keep to my own timetable on holiday but thought it was a bonus in terms of the price I was paying. Found a great italian restaurant 3 mins walk away... and seriously could not publicly fault accomodation as was such a great price.

I don't know how all 20 reviews were so positive. My mother and I stayed there during the snowstorm New York just had. We wanted a drink of water shortly after we arrived and there was absolutely nothing to drink....not even a cup to use if we got water out of the bathroom faucet. I asked him what time (light) breakfast was, and he said 7:30. We planned on catching the ferry from that. He brought it at 7:40 and the next day at 7:45. We had to take a later ferry every day. On the last day he didn't bring it till 10 till 8:00. We were waiting on our taxi to go to the airport. He walked up to us and said don't you want breakfast? We said yes but you didn't bring it in time. His comment was, "I can't always be on time!". Breakfast consisted of bread and two small spoonfuls of jelly. My coffee caraffe had about a cup and a half of coffee in it. When the snowstorm hit, my relatives called to find out if we were ok as they had not heard from us for over 5 hours. My mom is 85 and they were worried about her. When they called to ask if we were there, Paul said he couldn't go upstairs to check. They said his exact words were, "I got very little sleep last night and I'm tired". He only went up to find our rooms empty an hour later when my sister threatened to have the police come by to see if we were in our rooms. We had been caught on the train and trees came down on the tracks. We were cold in the room after the snow had fallen, but couldn't find Paul to see if we could get a little more heat and there were no more blankets. The beds were very hard and the pillows so soft, they completely flattened out. No towels, and half a roll of toilet paper were in the bathroom. Needless to say, I would not stay here again or tell my friends about it...my enemies, maybe.

We stayed for two nights at Fort Place in August 2011. We chose Fort Place as we didn't fancy driving and parking on Manhattan and felt that the ferry ride from Staten Island would be a good way to arrive in NY.

The location is very convienent being only 5 minutes walk from the ferry terminal. The neighbourhood is OK. Not the best but by no means the worst. We felt comfortable enough walking back to the B&B at the end of the day but for anyone more nervous there is a bus from the ferry terminal that drops off by the B&B.

We had the top floor as we have two small children and as such the rooms were excellent value. We worried that the air conditioning would not cope with the heat but the rooms were cool enough, albeit the air con machines were a bit noisy. The larger room does not have heavy curtains so is very light when the sun comes up.

Breakfast is served in your room and was fine.

We chose this B&B due to it's location, we wanted something close to NYC but far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle at the end of the day. It was a very short walk to the Ferry terminal and straight onto the subway at the other end. The uphill walk at the end of the day was hard work sometimes, but there are buses that stop outside, but you can walk back in the time it takes for the bus to leave the terminal.

We had the whole of the top floor with 3 rooms and a bathroom. The rooms were very spacious and well equipped, the only downside was the lack of curtains in the large room, just lightweight blinds. Breakfast was served every morning between 7.30 and 8.00, it was nothing fancy, but adequate to get us started in the morning. It would have been nice to have had a bit of variety of bread and fruit during the week, but it was fine. Paul was a very good host, on hand when you needed some advice but he mainly left us to it.

A nice touch was the toiletries that were supplied, soaps, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. There were plenty of towells and bedding, it was quite cold at times during our stay, but the rooms were warm.

We found an amazing restaurant, Pier 76 is on the way back from the ferry terminal and has a fabulous menu at very reasonable prices compared to those in NYC. A busy place with lots of locals, TV's and very friendly service.

Was looking for a reasonably priced place to stay and found this place through Tripadvisor. Was able to get entire floor (2 bedrooms, sitting room and bathroom) to accomodate family of 4. Rooms were comfortable and warm and the location (about a 10 minute walk to Staten Island ferry) was good. Area around the place is not attractive, however, I felt rather safe even when walking home at night. Breakfast was nothing special (bread, butter/jam, coffee/juice and fruit) but it worked. Was a plus that I could park my car in the driveway for free. Also it is not too expensive to park at the ferry if you did not want to walk. About the only con was that the curtains on the windows did not provide a lot of privacy at night.

Myself, my partner and our two grow up kids stayed here the week before Chrismas and it was great!
Paul the owner was very descreet but welcoming.
The B&B itself is a delightful place to stay, very homely and the decor is warm and friendly. The weather when we were there was Freeeezing!!! But the rooms we stayed in ( we had the whole top floor) were very warm and cosy and a welome relief from the cold and the Chrismas madness in Manhatten.
I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone visiting New York and we will hopefully be staying there again next September.
