Hotel is right in the heart of town. The rooms are good size. Bathrooms not so much but functional. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast in a crate at your door every morning. Very nice. Would stay again. No front desk or service. French restaurant right downstairs with a bar.

When I arrived at this hotel, I was assigned a small attic room that was extremely hot. Although there is a small cooling vent that comes into the room, the cooling output is next to nothing. It seemed impossible to get the room cooler than 80 degrees. The thermostat did not work and the owners chose NOT to put an... More

A couple of our rooms at The Sydney do have [we think very charming] knee walls, but categorizing this as an "attic room" is very misleading. There is an AC unit in this room, which we verified was, and is, operational. It having been the hottest week of the summer during your stay, we understood that it was still been... More

What a wonderfully intimate inn to stay at in MV! The location, person attention (or privacy if desired), and delectable breakfast basket made our weekend feel like pampered quests in a friend's quaint abode.

Our king sized room was lovely! There were endless little touches that we appreciated greatly. The breakfast that was delivered at 8:00 couldn't have been cuter: coffee, fruit, granola, scones, great breads and mini egg squares, orange juice were great, all contained in mini canning jars in the most darling wooden box that looked like a mini fish trap.

The Syndey is a cheerful B&B in the middle of Edgartown. I loved it! My room was spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. They also provided towels for me to take the the beach, and beach chairs and umbrella upon request. I spent lots of time on the front porch or in the the lawn chairs reading and relaxing.

We had never been to Martha's Vineyard so I had no idea of what hotel to choose. I came across the Sydney and the photos looked good enough for me to book 5 nights with fingers crossed. Wow!

We recently spent 4 days at The Sydney in Edgartown and loved it. The location in Edgartown is ideal and the staff couldn't have been nicer. The recently remodeled rooms are very cozy and welcoming and the breakfast at the nearby Victorian Inn was just right.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Sydney (formerly The Fallon), an intimately sized boutique Edgartown hotel. Completely renovated and refreshed in 2015, this chic jewel is located in the heart of Edgartown above the renowned l'etoile restaurant. Featuring 8 stylish Edgartown hotel accommodations, The Sydney is your key to an exclusive and relaxing Martha's Vineyard vacation. The name "Sydney" means "wide island south of the water" -- an ideal description of Martha's Vineyard. Our boutique Edgartown hotel is a small but distinctive fixture in central Edgartown -- a magnificent Victorian home built in 1892 by Captain Charles W. Fisher, with an intact lawn and lovely architectural details. That's why we call The Sydney a "small jewel on a wide isle." It's petite, chic and perfectly located. ... more   less
