“Really enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed January 15, 2006

We stayed for 2 nights at the Nonantum in early September 2005 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

We had a second floor room in the Portside lodge, which had a fantastic view over the river and ocean beyond through its huge picture window. The room had a kitchenette which we didn't need, but I can imagine this would be very useful for a lengthier stay. The room was spacious enough with a comfy king bed and lovely armchair to sit and watch the view from. The bathroom was small but adequate with a good selection of toiletries.

We had dinner in the hotel's restaurant on our first night and the food was pretty good. The live band (Don Cambell Trio, every Monday) was excellent covering a wide range of well known tunes as well as some of their own songs and they talked to and involved the audience a lot, so there was a great atmosphere.

Next morning we jumped on the trolley bus which stopped outside the hotel for a tour of the area - we wish we had jumped off and explored the monastery, but we only had a day so were keen to see everything. That night we strolled into town (10 mins walk) for dinner and drinks.

Overall, we found the staff very friendly, the room was good (and the communual areas in the Portside lodge were lovely) but it was the view over the river and the band in the restaurant which are our most enduring memories of our stay. Would definitely return again.

We stayed only 1 night at the Nonantum during our New England trip.
We were welcomed very friendly by the lady at the front desk.
She recommended us to have dinner in the nearby village centre as a tourist
bus had just arrived and therefore,
she could not guarantee a quick service that night.
The rooms were large, a bit outdated but that's exactly the charm of this hotel.
Breakfast a-plus.
