I waited a week to write the review because at first I was a little angry at the parking situation at Danford's. It seems they do not have their own lot, it belongs to the town. But they do have Valet service. However, I was there when there was an event in town and it was just insane. Breathe. The... More

Dinner at Danford was good, not great. The food was tasty but the restaurant felt a little dated. Nice view and good service. The patio was great. I would come back next time in the area. But would be open to exploring other places.

Had a great stay at Danfords. The hotel consists of rooms in several pleasant buildings scattered in a small area down at the harbor, plus restaurant and other amenities. Our room was lovely, beautifully decorated in a transitional style that had a lot of charm - and had all up-to-date features including a really nice bathroom. Bed was super-comfy and... More

Had a lovely time and yummy meal at a gorgeous evening wedding right on the water at danford's . Bar/restaurant downstairs, party room upstairs. Great views. Buffet food was good/ especially the penne vodka. Balcony Deck outside was small but nice. Very close and convenient to th ferry! We came over from bridgeport.

It was okay. We were 3 professional couples and had appetizers and drinks. Drinks were not great, appetizers were average and we think it had great potential. On the water, great views, plenty of people and a great location. Needs to be "managed" better.

While we did not stay at the hotel, we did dine at The Wave. This is Danford's outdoor restaurant. A huge deck juts out over Long Island Sound with it's view of the marina and boats. Our party of six had a very good meal and lots of drinks.

My husband and I stayed here for a couple nights in a waterfront room. We were fortunate to have a private covered porch off the bedroom area which provided us with the perfect place to sip wine in the evening and coffee in the morning. Our view was absolutely fantastic. The room was very large, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Would... More

Great Place if you want peace, tranquility, views and a great meal !! Beautiful accommodations to compliment the overall experience. We will return in the near future. Also makes for a romantic getaway with walk-to-all village to stroll through the shops and cafes'.

I stayed on Thursday and I had to wake up at 5:00 next morning for work. They played loud (and not good) music until 11:00 so I was not able to sleep.A hotel is supposed to provide good sleep, not loud and terrible music.
