We loved the historic value of the hotel and the beautiful bar downstairs.. There are different styles of rooms to suite all budgets and needs. We had a great stay and loved the turn down service with fresh baked cookies every night. We would recommend this hotel to all couples.

A short business trip led me to the area, and I was very happy to have found the Inn. Very charming, with a great, welcoming staff. Although I didn't have a chance to try the restaurant, we did have apps and drinks in the bar. The room was very clean and comfortable. Hoping to visit next time in the area.

We stayed here for the weekend while we went for a friend's wedding who had the reception at the Inn. It was a great party and after party and breakfast the next day. The rooms are lovely and the staff very nice. Cookies are given at night which adds to the hominess. This was my first time in New Hampshire... More

I stayed two nights at the old Exeter Inn. My friendly welcome by Cindy, at the front desk, set the stage for a terrific stay. The room, while small, was very comfortable and the chocolate chip cookies my first night were outstanding. Everything was quality. Then entire staff was pleasant and friendly as well as accommodating any special requests. I... More

This was a charming little hotel that has the feel of an old New England dorm, but renovated and modernized. It was cozy but comfortable, and the bathroom was a splendid and clean white. The room was sunny and comfortable, and the bartender was friendly to chat with. I'd definitely recommend it to my friends!

The room was comfortable, and the bathroom had a great shower stall, although the room itself was pretty small. There is an "old fashioned" feeling to the Inn, but it was also a nice setting. The cocktail lounge area was nice. Breakfast was tasty & we enjoyed eating on the outdoor patio.

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this Inn. The hotel manager is sensational. He and his crew are top notch. They accommodated us with the last open room on short notice, had housekeeping pull down and set up the sofa bed for us so my wife and our children could come right in late and go to sleep... More
