You will not be disappointed. We came here first to get away from stressful jobs to relax. We now come every 90 days no matter what. The attention to detail when taking care of their "house guests" is over the top. You feel at home, and everyone treats you like family. Joe, Tracy, James, Laura and Laura, Brianna......everyone is wonderful.... More

The Good: --James, the pub waiter, anticipated every need, including instructions for fire pit if we wanted to use it when he wasn't around. --Ditto front desk gal whose parents moved to Florida--who let us stay one night instead of 2 and accommodated extra person (our son). So thoughtful. --Spotless. Both from sheets to sink to manicured garden w/paths. --Amazing... More

This was my 3rd time staying here for business and I was not disappointed. While the hotel and room are very nice, it was the staff that makes this the place to stay. From the manager to the wait staff, you are treated like a VIP.

If you visit this place hoping to reconnect with your memories of the Stratford Inn from the Bob Newhart show, you will not be disappointed. Although the Inn has seem some changes you get the feeling that you are in the show. The quirkiness of the activities from the show was evident from our first few minutes as we walked... More

I really enjoyed staying here. Was down here for a music festival. Thought it was pretty cool to be staying at the old Waybury Inn from the Newhart show. Of course only the outside was used during the show, don't expect the inside to look anything like the show. Rooms were nice, hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. Sat on... More

Definitely went there because of the Newhart connection. Always wanted to. It's definitely different from the show obviously. Brianna at the front desk is very knowledgable as she has lived in the area a long time. The owners also live nearby. It was so warm it made me sleepy sometimes. The pub is down the hall and is very good.... More

Stayed here last weekend. The hospitality displayed by all the people that work there is second to none. Specifically James and Amy, a bartender and server respectively. They truly treat you as their "house guest" and bend over backwards for you. I would highly recommend you staying at the Waybury Inn for a memorable experience. If I could give them... More

Hey, its the Newhart/Dick Loudon Inn. Went looking for the Minuteman Café, couldn't find. Actually had a nice dinner on a Saturday night. Have been here before, will be back again. Nice classic NE feel.

Great place -- well appointed, very clean, friendly hosts. Complimentary breakfast superb! Highly recommend . Only about 5 miles from the college so well situated . Would stay again . Plenty of parking . Quiet street. Nothing more to add. This 200 character minimum is a real pain

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Waybury Inn is known not only for its role on the Bob Newhart Show, but also for its extraordinary dining options and beautiful accommodations. The Waybury Inn's thirteen guest rooms are decorated with a little whimsy and provide all of the comforts expected in today’s lodging. It is true that we are over 200 years old, but we have spent the last ten years renovating and decorating to offer the best blends of historic charm and comfortable surroundings. Dog-friendly accommodations, deep claw-foot bathtubs, free wireless internet, a dedicated guest PC, and a full service bar are just some of the amenities we offer. All of our guests also enjoy a complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast each morning. ... more   less
