Had a great couple of days in P town and the Waterford Hotel was the perfect base - beautiful decor, gorgeous breakfast, lovely hosts and amazing views! We will definitely be back - big thanks to Thomas and the team! Carrie, Martin, Sue and Mel from England.

Great bed and breakfast. Clean, comfortable rooms and very efficient and friendly staff all around. Tom, the manager makes everything work and made sure all of our needs were attended to. Located on Commerce Street in Provincetown, the Waterford is in the middle of all the action.

This is more of a restaurant with a few rooms attached rather than a full service hotel. But the location is fantastic, staff friendly, rooms spotless and the breakfast is outstanding even if the coffee is better taken across the road. So what is not to like? Not much except the rooms are small and not particularly well sound proofed....

This quaint Cape Cod inn is just the perfect place. Centrally located in the East End of PTown we stayed in a dog friendly room that was spacious and had the most comfortable bed. We would get up in the morning and bring our dog across the street and hang out on the beach after a delicious cup of coffee...

The Waterford Inn is a lovely vintage inn with updated decor and wonderful service. You can tell this Inn has been here since the 1800's, but it's exceptionally well-maintained, with modern chic decor and updated finishes. You'll love the antique-feel of the room, but better yet: the rooms have private bathrooms (a luxury that is obviously rare in many of...

This place is truly a gem. We were graciously greeted from the moment we stepped in the door. The room was bright and clean. We were minutes from downtown Provincetown. The walk was easy. Breakfast was excellent. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you,Thomas, for making our stay a pleasant one. Pat A. Webster, NY

After many stays across the country, this the first time I've felt inspired to leave a review. This place is simply wonderful. It has the charm and quaint qualities desired in P-town- centrally located right of commercial st, but removed from the street through its entry sequence. I had what I assume is a base level room; third floor, no...

The location turned out to be perfect and the Inn was very sweet. Room was clean, sheets were great, and a/c was cold. You have a little garden to walk through to get to the front door which was beautiful and inviting. Some caveats: We were on the 3rd floor which wasn't ideal and there was no coffee maker in...

We stayed at the waterford inn for a week, choosing the best room they have, a "luxury suite with balcony" facing the bay. The balcony is there as well as the bay. But to seat in the balcony means to deal with a noisy fan coming from the kitchen of the restaurant they have in front of the Inn. And...

We really enjoyed our 3 days at The Waterford. Our room was spacious and very comfortable and very clean. The bed linens and pillows were amazing! Best of all was the hotel staff. They were very accommodating with everything: luggage, suggestions of places to go and things to do, and very pet friendly. I highly recommend the Waterford and the...
