Loved the location; so close to South Street but also walking distance to the Old City. Breakfasts were wonderful and loved Norma. She is delightful and very helpful. Beware if you can't tolerate cats or walk up steep winding stairs, look elsewhere.

Great location to walk to everything. Definately not the Ritz, but priced accordingly. If you are looking for a place to drop your head with a hot breakfast, this is the place. Nothing fancy, but comfortable. Steep stairs so not for anyone who has difficulties with that. I

We stayed here for 2 nights in September. This row house has been lovingly restored by Norma and is a very interesting place to stay. There are only 2 guest rooms which makes it quite an intimate place. We were in the guest room on the 2nd floor which is large and comfortable.

Norma was a fantastic host, welcoming and incredibly concerned and helpful when our car was towed away! The house was clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was freshly prepared and cooked for us. It was affordable and in a pretty area accessible to shops, cafes,

As the person responsible for booking your stay at the New Market Bed and Breakfast, I would like to respond to your critique. While it seems like the location worked well for you, and the hostess was extremely accommodating to your requests, it appears that the actual accommodation did not meet your expectations. Some of the quirky elements of the home such as the tight-winder stairs proved an unexpected problem for you. We alert all of our guests to this historic feature , but we will be sure to emphasize this to all future guests. You mentioned that the furnishings were old but not antiques. This property is a historic home, but it is not filled with antiques and perhaps we need to be more clear about this. As readers can see from the many positive reviews listed here, most guests find this accommodation to be a good value. It is in a great location and the hostess has many repeat guests which speaks to the good service that she provides. We appreciate the time that you took to evaluate your stay.
