“Perfect in every way ... again!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

It's not often that I review a place twice but I just have to say again how wonderful this place is! I stayed at the Port D'Hiver for a second time last month. We stayed in the Carriage Suite and it was one of the nicest weekends I have had in a long time. The bed, the tub, the food, the service ... all of it is fantastic. They really came through for us at the very last minute when our planned vacation to a B&B in Bedford, NY fell through. What could have been a ruined anniversary weekend actually ended up being perfect. Thanks again to Linda for taking such good care of us!

Room Tip: The Carriage Suite was gorgeous. It faces the road (and the ocean) so there is some light traffic n...

Port d'Hiver is an absolute diamond in the rough. We were told about this lovely bed and breakfast by a friend who continually raved over it. As a first year wedding anniversary I decided to take my wife to a nice little getaway. When I originally made the reservations we were in the Havana room but after receiving an email from the staff they upgraded me for free to the Indian River Room because it was our anniversary. This in itself spoke volumes to me about the staff at Port d'Hiver. When arriving we were given instructions on how to find our room because we were going to be getting in after office hours. To our surprise when we arrived a staff member was there to greet us and take us on a tour of the grounds before heading to bed, this mind you was at 11PM. The Indian River room was gorgeous. Beautiful lofted ceilings with a private balcony. The hot tub was a perfect way to end each night. The breakfast part of the stay was one thing I was worried about. I've stayed at bed and breakfast before and usually it is similar to a continental breakfast at a hotel, but not here. We had two different choices each morning which were freshly cooked. The food was fabulous from the fruit/coffee cake to the main dish. The staff would go out of their way to help you. Great location, right across from the beach. If you are expecting a crazy busy spring break/luxury like location, this is not it. It is a quiet coastal town for those who just want to get away and relax. If you are looking for more of a party scene Melbourne and Cocoa Beach are both a close drives. I would highly recommend this place and definitely plan on going back. I can honesty say there is not one negative about this place!

Port d'Hiver is the only 4 diamond rated lodging in Brevard County, and it certainly lives up to its reputation. I've stayed there several times, and I always leave with regret, yet rested and renewed in body and spirit. This time my husband and I stayed in the Carriage Suite--the sounds of the ocean and the view of the sunrise made it so special. The owners are as friendly and accommodating as possible, and the gourmet breakfast selections more than satisfy.
From the soft sounds of Jack Johnson on the CD in our room, to the fluffy bathrobes, heated HUGE spa in a tropical setting, wonderful homemade cookies, complimentary wine/soft drinks/snacks and DVD library in the main house, we were pampered guests.
I cannot afford to visit as often as I'd like, but my annual birthday "special" which arrived via email allowed for a wonderful stay in the most luxurious suite--but at a bargain price. I bought a gift certificate for my daughter's 40th birthday, and I can only hope she enjoys this magical place as much as I do.

Room Tip: Rooms with sunrise views tend to be most popular, but you might consider that a walk across the stre...

This was are second time staying at Port d'Hiver, and our stay was just as great!! We have stayed in the Yellow Room and the Windward Suites, both are beautiful and the beds are so comfortable! The breakfast is great and served in a nice setting. The whole property is just amazing, we go to relax and get away and this Inn does the trick, wish we could make it there more often!! Thanks for another enjoyable stay!! Oh and there is a great piano bar within walking distance and a nice market across the street.

This establishment is flawlessly appointed---the room we occupied was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated,with a bathroom that was wonderful,double jacuzzi tub, and shower. Staff was very attentive and really interested in the quality of our stay. The layout of the buildings was very comfortable and the heated pool jacuzzi was delightful.. Breakfast was absolutely terrific. Different specials daily for breakfast were varied and delicious..cost of rooms are a little on the expensive side but once you stay there,you know it is worth it. Would return for another stay in a heart beat-- it was a romantic break that my wife and I both needed-- for beach lovers--there is a great beach right across the street..they even supply beach chairs,bikes,pretty much anything you need---they thought of it----- heartily recommend this establishment---they know what there guests are looking for and provide it with with a smile--an absolutely wonderful experience----GREAT PLACE! Try to experience it--

We checked in on New Year's Day for a one night stay (wish we could have stayed longer). The staff was very attentive and provided excellent service. We stayed in the Sunrise room which surpassed our expectations. Lovely wood floors and ceiling - the furniture is quality. Loved the little details including the crystal glasses, ice in wine bucket upon arrival, L'Occitane Bath Amenities (including crystals for bath), the yummy double chocolate brownies after turn down service; great quality linen (minimum 400 TC) and towels (Egyptian cotton robes).

We had breakfast in one of the many little nooks around the beautifully kept property. The entire place is homey and inviting. For those of you Urbanites - keep in mind this is a small beach town and almost everything closes at at 8 or 9PM.

While short - our experience at Port d'Hiver was absolutely lovely - can't wait to make it back!
