My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for my birthday. The owners were gracious and friendly and I was pleasantly surprised to find a split of champagne in our room to help me celebrate. Thank you. We are innkeepers as well and therefore, are are a bit particular as to where we stay while vacationing. The inn is... More

We went to Portsmouth for a pre-holiday escape weekend. The Martin Hill Inn was the perfect choice of a place to stay. The innkeepers are friendly and very informative and make a divine breakfast. The room (we stayed in "Sea Witch") was light-filled, comfortable, clean and nicely decorated/furnished with a VERY comfortable bed. It is a ten minute or less... More

Cozy, well-appointed and within a great distance to downtown! The inn Keepers are friendly and willing to give guidance as to what and where. Would love to revisit in summer to see what looked to be beautiful gardens! Our only complaints: air freshener and a room that was a little too warm for comfortable sleeping at night.

Very attractive inn with outstanding breakfasts and yummy cookies in afternoon. We could walk to the historic houses, shops and many restaurants in town. It was Restaurant Week so we were able to enjoy 3 course dinners for $29.95. Owners very helpful and friendly. Only disappointment was no common room to sit and read, though our bedroom included a nice... More

They were wonderful hosts!! It was a short 10 minute walk from the center of town, the food was wonderful and the room comfy (pillows not the best but fine). The Sherry and cookies are a nice touch! I look forward to staying there again next time I am in town. Pro-tip, go eat at The Black Birch in Kittery... More

We were only able to stay one night, but we definitely plan on going back. The room was very clean, spacious, cozy, and inviting. Loved the canopy bed and the mattress was very comfortable. The owners were welcoming and provided a lot of information about the area. Breakfast is absolutely delicious and not to be missed - gourmet comfort food... More

My room was gorgeous and very clean and comfortable. Disappointed I could only stay one night and had to leave so early that I couldn't enjoy breakfast; however, I was able to take a to-go cup of tea (so many to choose from) and a cookie. ;)

We prefer B&B's to hotels and were glad to find Martin Hill when visiting Portsmouth. Portsmouth is a walkable town and the inn is located just on the outskirts of the downtown area. The room we stayed in was small but comfortable; the stairs to the second floor were steep and might be difficult for some. The innkeepers are friendly... More

We didn't choose this B & B, it was a gift certificate from relatives. When we first arrived, we wondered about the location as it is not walking distance from downtown unless you LIKE to walk more than we do. Don't plan on checking in before 4 PM. The doors will not open before that so plan accordingly. We stayed... More

My husband & I had a fabulous time at Martin Hill Inn! We stayed for three nights for our 10 year anniversary. It was cozy, comfortable, & very clean! I truly felt like I was home, not like your quintessential hotel room. The inn keepers were attentive & very kind! They were very involved with all of their guests, chatting... More
