We stayed 3 nights and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The location is perfect. The breakfasts a nice touch and very tasty. We were in room 8 which was quite large, first floor front of the house. . There's a sitting area that overlooked the beautiful front garden and was great for people watching. Breakfast can be enjoyed in the common area, the front patio or your room. That was a nice touch. The host was amazing. Bizzo, the golden, is adorable. Don't worry, Bizzo doesn't roam around, I specifically asked to see him cuz I missed our doggo. She only makes an appearance if you request it. We felt so welcomed there. I'm sure each room is different so I cannot speak to other rooms but ours was clean and not small at all. Plenty of storage space. The house is pretty old, given that, there are some quirks like noisy plumbing, funky door knobs but that is all part of the charm of staying in a home like this.

We stayed at the Somerset House for four nights as part of a cross-country getaway with another couple. The host and staff (of one person) are super friendly and good hosts. There were many other friendly guests there, most of them straight couples and many had stayed here before. Overall, we found the place in need of some updating and bordering on dingy. There does not seem to be an over-abundance in the upkeep of the property in general. I was never able to lock the main exterior door, nor did I ever find it locked; even at night. Some of the light fixtures are askew and the exterior building is in need of some work as is the interior. The rooms are small for 2 people, especially if you have any luggage. The carpet in our room needed a good vacuuming (which it got the day after we arrived.) It's always nice to arrive in a clean and tidy room, we didn't have that experience. The common living area inside is super small. We were all happy that we were not confined to the inside during the day, as might have been the case had we experienced bad weather. Additionally, some of the rooms have entry doors very close to one another. This proved especially unfortunate when the guest in a room that was adjacent to ours opted to have "guests" throughout the night. The breakfasts are simple and adequate but by no special. After leaving, we all decided that in spite of the pleasantness of the place, there are many other alternative B&Bs in PTown that we will put ahead of this one on our next visit.

Response from Robert Klytta, Owner at Somerset House Inn

Thank you for the feedback on your stay. We have rooms of various sizes and unfortunately this room was not a good fit for these guests. We have some wonderful outdoor common areas so we hope the guests were able to enjoy that space during their stay. As for the categorization that the building needs a "little TLC" I would say that we are constantly doing things to the building to enhance the guest experience. We are also limited by time and unfortunately many projects have to wait until slower periods of business. I would make a recommendation to any guest that they should communicate with the staff if there is something amiss. Our goal is to make every guests experience excellent.

My wife and I have stayed at Somerset for several days each summer for approx 7 years. Location is fantastic. Rooms comfortable. Bob is friendly, hospitable, warm, and knowledgeable about the area. He’s become like family. Don’t miss the homemade breakfasts and the daily cocktail hour. Highly recommend for when you visit Provincetown.

In our previous stays at the Somerset House, we had taken Room 1 on the first floor, which has a sitting room attached. This time we opted for a room on the third floor. To get there you have to climb up a fairly steep spiral staircase, but if you can do that, it's worth it. Room 5 has the inn's best view of the water (you look over buildings on the opposite side of Commercial Street) and also a jacuzzi. The building as a whole is very comfortable, though, when we were there, densely populated with ghosts, witches, skeletons, and black cats. The breakfasts prepared by host Bob were delicious (meatless casseroles, muffins, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee).

We decided to try Provincetown during the off season. This place was perfect! Great location, friendly staff. The room was clean and quiet. Not a lot going on around town, but found plenty to do anyway. We will definitely recommend Somerset House Inn to anyone visiting Provincetown.
