Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

Nestled in a prime location for sightseeing and shopping, Dan'l Webster Inn & Spa is celebrated for its historical charm and inviting atmosphere. The staff's professionalism and helpfulness often receive commendation, although there are occasional notes of understaffing. While rooms are recognized as clean and comfortable, the dated decor and climate control issues are areas for improvement. Guests frequently enjoy the scenic dining options and praise the cleanliness, with particular appreciation for the serene dining space. However, opinions on value are divided, with some guests commending package deals but others questioning the overall cost for the experience.

Daniel Webster Inn checked all our boxes for a quiet get away weekend. The staff is friendly. Most importantly we felt safety measures were adhered to during this pandemic. We enjoyed delicious breakfast and dinner at their restaurant. The winter package is a great deal as you get 20% off your room and $15 coupons for each night's stay for breakfast and dinner or gift shop.

Many visits & always feel welcome & relaxed.
The rooms in the main Inn could stand a little “updating” especially the bathrooms.
Very quiet & comfortable.
Have stayed here many times over the years, always wanting to return.

We booked one of the suites with the fireplace and whirlpool tub and it was really nice. The bed was comfortable and the amenities were great! We had dinner the night we arrived and breakfast the first morning we were there in the dining accommodations on the first floor, and it was really good food with great service! The people at the front desk were really helpful, offering a walking map of the surrounding area. Sandwich itself is easily walkable and it seems like the inn is in a great location to be able to walk to the area shops and restaurants easily. We were here in early October, so it was a little too chilly to use the pool, but the grounds were nicely maintained with a beautiful garden and little courtyard area to sit in. Would highly recommend for a stay with a homey feel and delicious food!

What a shame ! The facility is beautiful inside . Just like being in a Inn back in England but unfortunately the staff from the kitchen to the wait staff did not match the decor of the establishment.
The veranda is beautiful and the table is nicely set up with white table cloth and white cloth napkins .
Unfortunately the food is way overpriced, terrible presentation , small portions and on top of it just simply thrown on the plates . The chef and his brigade needs to seriously looks at what they are serving to theirs customers .
The scrod was over cooked ,translucent with a thick sauce . The presentation was horrible. A scoop of rice was placed beside the fish and a small portion of tasteless frozen green beans on the side . The kitchen should be ashamed to serve that . This is the kind of food preparation and presentation they served in the USA back in the year 1980 .
The chicken pot pie is a joke . How difficult it is to cover your pot pie mixture with a round of puff pastry and egg wash it and cook it ? Instead the kitchen is taking a short cut and microwave the chicken pot pie mixture and pre cook a square of puff pastry and before serving they just put the pre cooked puff pastry square on top of the microwaved reheated chicken pot pie mixture .
The comic part of the chicken pot pie show is that the wait staff make it a big deal by serving you with the chicken mixture and then placing the pre cooked square puff pastry on to of it ? Good show but no thank you . Instead you should concentrate on refilling your customers wine and water glasses and check with your customers periodically to make sure they are satisfied.
One of our guest burgers came without the lettuce ,tomatoes and pickle and he had to ask for it .
With some passion and caring from the kitchen staff regarding the food quality and presentation and raising the level of service this restaurant could be a very good restaurant .
Needs to move up from the old cuisine and be up to date with today culinary trend .

Dear roger m ~ We certainly apologize that your dining experience did not measure up to your expectations. We have forwarded your comments to our Executive Chef for his review. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your dining experience ~ our Chicken Pot Pie served as it was to you is a favorite of many of our diners. We once almost had a riot on our hands because we took it off the menu for a very short time. We do apologize for the service issues and our Executive Chef and Dining Room Manager will follow up on the other comments you provided so that we can work to continue to improve. We thank you for your detailed comments. Again, we apologize that it was not the experience you expected. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts.

We stayed here two nights for our anniversary. The rooms need cleaning and dusting, glass sconces are covered in cobwebs and dust. The dining areas also need deep cleaning, drapes in dining room smell sour and even menus have an old food odor. Cobwebs in the corners and in the plants of conservatory are detrimental to what could be a beautiful space. At breakfast this morning, I felt a lump under my arm at the table, and lifted up the tablecloth to find a squished half eaten chocolate candy- it makes you question what else is being cleaned or not.

Food was mediocre for the price. I realize staffing is tough this year- but for the amount of money they are charging- cleanliness is a minimal ask.

We stayed in one of the Jarves suite rooms and it was truly wonderful. We don't normally spend much time in a hotel room but were looking for a romantic winter getaway and this was perfect. The tub for two which stayed hot, the beautiful alcove in which it is set, the gas fireplace, the heated bath floor, and the amazingly comfortable bed and QUIET!.
The restaurant, on the other hand, was a disappointment in the service and food quality. For example, they took my knife when clearing the appetizer and didn't bother to replace it or ask if I needed anything when delivering the main course. They are understaffed as there was no one to even flag down. The duck was dry and a bit tough and not crispy as advertised. The lamb was also somewhat tough. The were short staffed again at breakfast although that food was very good. The conservatory is a beautiful room but they need more and better staff and should not serve food they don't know how to prepare.

Booked a room over Labor Day weekend. I wanted to do a solo getaway with the option to relax by the pool and go to the spa. The Spa was fantastic! Would highly recommend. They gave me a $15 breakfast voucher for each morning at the restaurant which basically covered my entire meal. It was also very delicious.

I do wish they would give guests a head's up of when big events were happening while we were staying. The restaurant and garden/pool area were closed one evening of my stay because of a wedding and there wasn't any notice. I would have rethought my day planning had I known.

My husband and I stayed one Sunday night. We had a wonderfully relaxing time. We were able to get a package deal where we had two $15 vouchers - one for dinner and one for breakfast. We ate in the tavern for dinner. The food in the tavern is a step above regular bar food. I wish I had saved room for dessert. Breakfast at the inn is the best. We both had omelets and delicious coffee. Service at both meals was fantastic!

We so much enjoyed our stay at the Daniel Webster Inn. The pool was in a garden like setting, and so warm and relaxing. Our large, clean room had an extremely comfortable bed with sunlight making it a very bright and cheery space. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us — directions, nearby attractions we could visit, menu recommendations, etc. The age of the Inn made us feel like we were going back in time — in a good way — especially in the pub and dining room. We will definitely return.

I recently stayed 2 nights and took advantage of the Spa, restaurant and the local beach. This is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. The cuisine was superb, the rooms comfortable with a 2 person shower and spa tub in the room (only in certain rooms) and the Spa facility was classy. A word of caution, the beds were high so if you are mobility impaired please let the Inn know, the staff were very helpful. Though the price point to stay at this Inn is high, it was worth it.

We don't intend to hire a car while we are here is there any taxi service nearby for short runs?
Answer from KimSt
There is a taxi service in town - however you may also want to check to see the availability of Uber services in the area.
Answer from KimSt
Absolutely. Please call the Inn and speak to the Front Desk - they can process additional deposits at any time and as many as you would like to as it is convenient for you. 508-888-3622, option 2 ~ Kim
Answer from KimSt
Hi Jess477 ~ Thank you for asking about the Beach Plum Spa at the Inn. If you are looking for the winter months, the spa does have showers and a small relaxation room. During the summer months, the outside hot tub and pool are available for use by Spa guests as well. If you are looking to have a group or want all those amenities, we can highly recommend our sister property, The Cape Codder Resort & Spa. At either property you will be pampered by our professionally trained therapists. I strongly suggest for you to call our Spa, and speak to one of the receptionists ~ they will be able to guide you to the location that best suits your needs. Please call 508-833-3211 for the Spa. Thank you!
