Wonderful place to stay. The cleanest rooms I think I have ever stayed in. The place was immaculate.
Kent itself is so nice this time of year and the Fife n Drum just added to the wonderful weekend.
The staff was very friendly.
I am not a huge fan of B & B's and this was a great alternative since that area has alot more B & B's then hotels.
The bar and restaurant was also very nice.
Walking distance to some shops and restaurants.
The inn was fully booked, however, did not hear a thing the entire night. So quiet and relaxing. Planning on going back again and again.

PRO: Great location, very friendly staff, good value, large rooms.

CON: A little outdated, very thin walls.

We stayed in the Rose Room (room #4). Could pretty much hear the conversation going on in the next room. Didn't help that they were "door-slammers" either. :-) Room was larger than I anticipated, or maybe it just seemed that way because of the high cathedral ceiling.

Given it was $158, and other B&B's in town charge much more than that, it was a good value. (Plus, we didn't spend much time in our room anyway.)

We didn't go into the restaurant, but it looked charming, and there was a very sizable crowd in there for Sunday brunch. Note that this is NOT a B&B, as there is no breakfast. However, Caralee's right down the street serves a very good breakfast.

All in all, it worked just fine for our purposes (a decent room at a good price - just wish it wasn't so noisy), but those looking for a "true B&B experience" should be advised to look elsewhere.

Stayed at the Fife N' Drum Inn in Kent CT for 3 nights in late July.

Check in: was a little strange at the bar of the restaurant next door. However the staff was pleasant and check in went smoothly.

I was in room #7. It is somewhat set off by itself. The room was quite large and nicely decorated. There was a refrigerator, with a bottle of orange juice and a bottle of grapefruit juice which was a plus, coffee pot with coffee and filters, cable TV, air conditioning, iron and ironing board and a large closet. There was a king size bed and a futon so the room would have easily slept 3 or 4. The room was very clean. The bathroom was old fashioned but very clean. The holder for the hair dryer was empty. A call to the restaurant produced a portable hair dryer in short order.

I was there on business, so it was a negative that there is no desk to put your computer on. I had to unplug the telephone and sit on the bay window to do my work e-mail, which was not comfortable. Also the lighting in the room is more for atmosphere than working. I would have appreciated a larger light bulb in the lamp.

The location of the Inn is right next to the center of town and you can walk to all the shops. There are several restaurants in the area and the Fife 'n Drum's own restaurant is excellent. The chicken marsala at the Pizza Garden is also quite good. For breakfast walk down the street to the cafe. .a nice local place with good breakfast at a reasonable price.

If I am in the area again I will definitely stay at the Fife n' Drum.

Stayed at the Fife'n Drum during February in order to go to Mohawk Mountain. Our stay was Saturday night and the check in at the restaurant and condition of the room were all very good.

The room itself had a vaulted ceiling and was recently remodeled. Everything was clean and in good working order. You are supplied with free juice and coffee and the room we had had a large king bed and a secondary bed/window seat was also in the room....so it would easily sleep 3.

This is an Inn and not a bed and breakfast......so don't expect free breakfast etc. I asked and discovered that a free lift ticket was provided for Mohawk......so make sure to ask for deals.

The vaulted ceiling and the room was extremely nice. The room and probably the Inn in general had one big negative.....no sound insulation. You can hear the TV from a room adjacent to yours and if you are a light sleeper it will be a problem.

The location of the Inn is right next to the center of town and you can walk to all the shops. There are several restaurants in the area and the Fife 'n Drum's own restaurant is excellent.

Personally, I'll probably hit a bed and breakfast in the future......but it was a good stay.

Stayed: February 2007
