Brought a tour group here in early Oct. 2016. We were treated like kings and queens. Can't say enough about this grand old hotel and it's kind, caring, conscientious staff. We were greeted with hot cider and cookies. We enjoyed a lobster bake put on by the hotel that was grander than we expected, topped off with Maine blueberry pie...

We picked The Colony Hotel after reading reviews but were unsure what to expect. Upon arriving we were met with champaign and a very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was everything we expected and more. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future.

I stayed for a week at The Colony Hotel and it was wonderful, but there are things you should know. You must love dogs and you won't have a TV in your room if you stay in the old part of the hotel. However, if you love dogs and hate TV - this is your place! As an added bonus,...

We didn't have reservations and only needed one night as we were heading back home next day. Beautiful old hotel with great ocean view. At check in we were not informed that there was no TV in the room. It's 2016 and didn't think to ask if there was one or not. There was a wedding reception and all night...

Very nice, clean and comfortable for us and our Basset hound! Excellent grounds and breakfast... Great photo opps. Close to town. The tour of beauty for Kennebunkport should start here and end with ice cream at Goose Rock dairy before heading home!

We went for the weekend and we enjoyed our stay in a king size bed room with ocean view. Nice room, the bed was a bit too hard and the doors were slamming when open and close, something to prevent that would be useful for a more quite time. The staff was very friendly, great services

Stayed in the older main building in a beautiful big room with a bay window overlooking the ocean. The bed was super comfortable. Very interesting experience to have no air conditioning and no tv, with the windows open didn't miss air conditioning at all! And same for tv, surprisingly! The service and food were top notch. The location is perfect...

The hotel is not the most beautiful I've ever stayed at, but it's clean and rooms are fair size. The lobby and the porch are very charming. We enjoyed breakfast and night caps on the porch every day. You could hear the ocean and it was lovely. We had our 5 month old labradoodle with us and she met lots...

Just returned from a weekend at this glorious resort. From the minute we checked in until we left it was like being in dreamland. The resort has everything you need and is within walking distance to all that is cute and quaint in Kennebunkport. Their staff is EXCEPTIONAL, especially all the people who serve you morning breakfast. They work so...

Beautify views of water for sunset on lawn. Great service around pool area where they offer great lobster roll. You must order the blueberry pie which is prepared by a delightful pastry chef , Karyn. Group dinner of haddock for our traveling tour was ok. But the pie crust made from butter not lard was truly delightful.
