We spent a weekend just to get away and our expectations were exceeded all around. The staff was incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful. Being the oldest Inn in NH, it was in beautiful condition and maintained many of its historical features and atmosphere. It was easy to find and very quiet. They spared no detail from the bedding to oversized, plush bath towels. Then of course is the food! Just wow! It was clear the chef is passionate about every plate, the ingredients and presentation. If you stay, enjoy the included breakfast but definitely make dinner reservations!
Quality food, lodging and personal service, so home like, warm and comfortable. Quiet small town and surroundings. The staff pay attention to the small details, very clean and so much history. Overall excellent experience, we will be back.
I stay here last weekend of September and just loved this perfect New England Hotel! The management and staff were super friendly and down to earth. They showed me my room and I loved the amenities. You could have coffee in your room or they had a coffee station set up at a table upstairs to have coffee whenever you wanted! Very friendly and accommodating staff! Food was good except for one dinner I had, the pot roast. The chef must improve that as it was so tough, just slabs of tough beef in broth, unlike a normal tender pot roast with vegetables. Grounds and weather was perfect, the town has a great restaurant across the street too!
We had the loveliest two night stay at this Inn and wished we had longer. The Inn's staff were amazing. Special thanks to Rhonda who warmly greeted us and was always willing to go the extra mile to help us out, whether it was to set up dinner for us, research local activities, and to mail us an item we left behind. The room was cozy and charming and I cant say nice enough things for the backyard and eating area. The breakfast was superb - we had the most delicious pancakes and french toast. This was one of our favorite stays in all of our travels because of its relaxing and warm nature. It felt comfortable like home. We could not have asked for more!
We were married here in 2017. Everything was perfect! From the garden and terrace to the dinner, desserts, drinks and family breakfast. Every guest gushed about how wonderful their room was. I could go on and on about that weekend. I left knowing that this would be our most treasured Anniversary destination. We finally made it back this year and the fabulous team at the Hancock Inn did not disappoint! We stayed in what I affectionately call “Our Wedding Suite.” (aka The Ballroom). We were greeted as if we were family. Our daughter sent gifts that Marcia & team took great pride in presenting to us on arrival and during our first dinner in the tavern. The only place you need to be sure to have dinner is right there at the Inn. The food is phenomenal and the team is friendly, thoughtful and knowledgeable. Even in the midst of COVID-19, they exceeded our expectations while keeping everyone safe.…
