“No detail overlooked”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

We had a splendid time on our recent visit to this extraordinary period B&B. Attention to both the broad experience and the smallest detail earmarked our time at the Robbins House, and we left very happy with our choice. We recommend it without hesitation.

My husband and I stayed at the Silas W. Robbins House while visiting relatives in Wethersfield. The décor, cleanliness, service, and overall atmosphere of this B & B are overwhelming. We have stayed many places world-wide, but the Silas Robbins House beats them all. Bravo to John and Shireen! We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: All rooms are delightful, but we picked the Jane Robbins room. What a treat!

My husband and I stayed at the Silas Robbins Inn over Easter Weekend. Our grandson was
being christened at the Trinity College Chapel. What a surprise!! The Inn was fabulous.
Impeccably clean and restored. Every room was immaculate and the bathrooms updated
and had plenty of room. The Inn Keepers are so warm and welcoming.
The breakfast offered in the morning was "memorable". It was unlike any other Inn breakfast
we have had. It was fabulous and a great way to start the day.
If you have a child who attends Trinity College...YOU MUST STAY HERE. If you are visiting
the area...no other choice. Its a gem.

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful...truly. I didn't see a pool but had to put a grade for the pool...

My husband and I stayed at the Silas W. Robbins House while attending a sports event in Hartford. We had the most wonderful experience at this lovely mansion. The impeccable decor, warm and friendly service, and wonderful breakfast were highlights of our visit. The innkeepers were attentive to every detail. It was just remarkable. We look forward to other opportunities to visit again in the future!

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed lovely. We stayed in the Silas Robbins room.

The Silas W. Robbins House is a fabulous place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and John and Shireen were fabulous hosts. The rooms and decorations were stunning especially in view of the history of the property. I would definitely stay there again given the opportunity.

One room for beautiful then the next! John and Shireen are the perfect hosts. The newly restored historic home had all the modern day comforts with the beauty of the victorian era, Each detail was beyond perfection both inside and out. The breakfast was fantastic, our entire stay exceeded any expectations. Our guest room, Cupids and Roses, was elegant and romantic! I can not wait to return during the holidays!!

Room Tip: all the rooms are gorgeous!

We came to Hartford for a Bruce Springsteen show downtown. I'm so glad I found a gem. We had the most wonderful stay at this beautifully restored Inn hosted by John and Shireen Aforismo. This was a refuge just outside of Hartford. We felt as if we were transported back in time to serene and charming perfection. Two other rooms were occupied by guests, but we had a chance to see all the rooms-including the magnificent ballroom-perfect for a large party event with a Royal atmosphere. Breakfast was warm and wonderful and we had the chance to meet husband/host John who also has a company in Hartford but helps with the Inn. It was Halloween week, so even the outside of the Inn was decorated with witches and goblins. We had one of their smallest available rooms, but it was large and cozy. Our bed was extremely comforable, and the shower/bath clean and nice. Thank you for making our stay in Hartford great!

Room Tip: Look on line to select the size room your interested in. They also have a nice brochure that accura...
