“Good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

This hotel has all that a traveler needs including spa, fitness workout room, complimentary breakfast, pool, and a scenic rooftop deck of the island.

Here are the pros and cons:

Pro: It has everything you need. They even offer free lemonade daily, beach towels, chairs, and the location is ideal (next to restaurants, shops, grocery stores, beach)

Con: If you get a room, there is a small odor that you will notice upon check in, but you later may become accustomed to it. If you get a balcony, you may see a visitor (bug) or to, but bug spray will resolve that. The Internet connection is also a little poor.

Overall, compared to the other hotels I saw, this is the best one on the island and if you have the funds, it's worth every penny. The fireplace rooms are a nice touch and the cleaning crew even decorate your tissue and update your soap and supplies. Most hotels do not do this. This place is historic and you feel and will grow to appreciate its value the longer you stay. The staff is friendly. They really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. If I return, I will only stay here. I recommend this hotel to anyone.

The standard room is cozy but small. Very clean and nicely appointed. Excellent front desk staff. There is a very nice roof patio with great views. An excellent full breakfast is included just off the lobby. Their dining room is also quite good for dinner but they do not have a full bar.

Mansion House was a great experience. Helpful staff, clean, beautiful rooms. Health club was excellent. Room ideal. Would have preferred a room overlooking Harbor. Location was great.
I will stay there again on next visit to NV. Parking was a plus.

The staff and accommodations were excellent, the staff went above and beyond their expected duties. The spa was all it was advertised to be and more, everything was top notch and working. The rooftop was a gem that should not be missed. We are already planning another off season getaway here.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Mansion House. I would highly recommended it! I give it a 10 out of 10 rating. The front desk staff is awesome. The Mansion House is immaculate. Rooms are lovely. We travel with our 10 year old Weimaraner. We were so glad that the Mansion House is Pet-Friendly. Nice breakfast every morning in the library. Beautiful indoor pool and hot tub.
We have a handicapped 26 year old son. Although he is able to walk slowly, parking is not too close to the hotel. If I could make a suggestion , if at all possible, maybe get a designated handicapped parking space or two specifically for Mansion House guests. We had to work it so that one of us got dropped off in front of the hotel with our son while the other went to park the car. The lots are not close if you have difficulty walking.Otherwise....we had an absolutely wonderful time in the Vineyard!!

This was our first trip to the Vineyard and this hotel was recommended by a friend. The town of Vineyard Haven was great and a little less crowded than oak bluffs and edgartown. The mansion House was very nice. We had a room on the 4th floor with a small view of the water and a tiny but cute balcony. The room was clean, nice and comfortable. The hotel also has a very nice workout facility and does not charge extra for its use. There is also a cupola on the top floor with great views. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were some really good restaurants within walking distance. I would stay here again!

InnkeeperMV, Owner at Mansion House, responded to this review, July 19, 2013
Thank you so much for taking the time to write. Guest reviews are really
important to us. Everyone who works at Mansion House appreciates that every
moment of a Vineyard vacation counts and that our job is to make sure our
guests are more than comfortable. When something is wrong, we use all our
resources to make it right. During the last two weeks, the weather has been
unusually hot, and reading great TripAdvisor reviews, is our equivalent to
a day at the beach!

This is our 4th year staying at the Mansion House and something we look forward to each summer. The hotel is lovely, we requested a room we had in the past and were delighted that our request was honored. A little disappointed the restaurant that served breakfast was no longer open but the Mansion House has done a nice job in supplying a continental type breakfast in a first floor sitting room. We have always found the staff very friendly, capable and more than happy to help in any way. Already looking forward to next year.
