The guesthouse looks incredibly well run and was spotless. The pools were a good size and the wine and cheese hour was a great way to socialise with other guests. The rooms looked a little dated with old paintings and bookshelves but it added a historic feel to the place with added to the atmosphere. The room was quite expensive... More

As others have said this property is well run and very pleasant to call home for a few days. The pool is a plus as are the daily refreshments and the happy hour at 5pm. It is not inexpensive to be a guest here. But hey, you can't take it with you right ? One word of caution to my... More

We are yearly visitors here and we were impressed with changes to the breakfast...more choices and excellent baked goods, as well as gluten free choices. Towel stand by the pool handy as well. Great wine & cheese for guests is good for mixing and mingling! Super clean and comfortable, staff are outstanding!

The Brass Key Guesthouse reminds of Melrose Place – small guest houses and rooms surrounding a central pool with lots of common areas for people-watching, gossiping, dining, enjoying cocktails and sun-bathing. The room rate can be extravagant during peak weeks – we were there during Bear Week 2016 where a the Classic Queen room with a Queen Bed ran upwards... More

Probably the best full-service guesthouse in PTown. Owners and staff are on-point, professional, friendly and helpful. It seems as though many guests return during the same week each year and some have a self-absorbed sense of entitlement. During the week we were at the guesthouse, the prominant "clique" appeared to be somewhat unwelcoming to outsiders.......and God forbid you sit in... More

Lovely grounds and pool, very well maintained. Rooms and grounds are immaculate. Cleaning staff beyond efficient. Good air conditioning. Cons - rooms on small side for price. One evening smoke detectors kept going off , lost a nights sleep. Nothing offered for our troubles, free night etc. note - we don't smoke - anything.
