5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

always wanted to stay here. Had a great view of the water. Relaxing. Staff was very helpful and cordial. Had breakfast downstairs and enjoyed everything. Sat outside after breakfast to enjoy watching the boats go by and bask in the sun. A great way to start the day.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2016 via mobile

We stayed for four nights. The complimentary breakfast was amazing-eggs, quiche, waffles, bacon etc. Hotel was a short walk to town but there was also a hotel shuttle that guests can use which was very timely. We took the shuttle to Gooches beach, and to/ from town. Our room and the grounds were clean. We had a water view which... More

Laminate flooring very noisy. Doors have big gaps under them and you can hear everything that is going on outside your room and I presume vice versa! Might aswell have a huge communal bedroom. Staff friendly and place looks ok but we only stayed one night. Enough for me!

If you look at the photos of the hotel it would seem as if it is surrounded by water, which is not the case, the back of the hotel faces a lagoon, that is all. They also call themselves a resort, which again it is not, they just have some games for kids on the lawn. The room was nice... More

Nonantum Resort made our vacation much more memorable. We passed by the resort when we visited Kennebunkport two years ago. This time we get to stay for 4 nights. We love our cozy room, view of the harbor, beautiful flowers all around, lobster boat tour, wonderful breakfast, but top of all is the staff. We can't thank you enough on... More

We wanted a special place for a special event and we found it in the Nonantum! My husband pre-ordered flowers to be in the room and they were the most beautiful arrangement I have ever seen! And they paled in comparison to the beauty of the room. We had a beautiful harbor view with a deck to lounge on and... More

Hello Cape Fans: I saw those flowers before they went in your room and I have to agree that they were among the nicest I have ever seen. We have a dynamite gardening team and in addition to making beautiful arrangements for our guests, they also decorate the lobbies and dining rooms and keep the flowers on the grounds looking...

We only stayed 1 night & I did ask for river view. The view we had from our room was of a tree, if you wanted to see the river you had to look out the bathroom window! Also, it was at the end of 2 very long halls from the elevator. Not ideal. It was a very convenient location,... More

Hello Cindy: I am so very sorry you did not find your room to your liking! I would be curious as to what room you were in and why you were assigned something without a water view if that was what you paid for. I apologize~ We do have a beautiful location that is close to town as you noted.... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Nonantum. Beautiful old hotel with 5 star service, food and great customer service. From the moment we entered, everyone was very helpful, from Guy who is a jack of all trades and drives the shuttle bus, to everyone at the front desk.

I've been staying at the Nonantum for over 25 years and have never had a bad experience. Many of the staff members have been there for as long as I can remember and provide consistent, excellent service. Since I generally eat dinner at 95 Ocean I was a bit concerned when I heard that the chef had recently retired. His... More
