“Best of Bellingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Great hotel ! We were visiting our daughter who attends Western University over the holidays.
Everyone was warm and friendly. It is located near all the unique boutiques and book stores.
Very private. They offer a lovely free breakfast with delicious waffles and fresh berries.
There is a walking path by the hotel (about 2 miles) with beautiful views and leads right into
the town of Bellingham . Perfect!

Room Tip: The water view rooms are available, however, there are may warehouses that blocked a part of the vie...

We stayed in the only suite and it was spectacular! The room was huge and beautiful and clean. The location was perfect and within walking distance of everything. Even though it was centrally located it was still cozy and quiet. There are a ton of restaurants, cafés, and places to get a bite or drink since the inn doesn't have an on site restaurant but they do offer a pretty great continental breaky. Would definitely make this my first choice in quaint little Fairhaven

Front desk staff was very welcoming, pleasant, and helpful. Free covered parking was a bonus. The room was spotless and spacious, and a gas fireplace only added to the ambiance.
Warm cookies greeted us upon check in, and the complimentary breakfast was basic but nourishing. Centrally located in the Fairhaven district with cool shops and eateries nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the bay!

We stayed over New Year's. The room was large and comfortable, with a gas fireplace for nice atmosphere, good-sized bathroom. The breakfast included was surprising: waffles made to order, hard boiled eggs, fruit, as well as the usual cereals, bread & bagels. Good coffee. Nice game room/library for hanging out. Staff was great. Highly recommended.

We stay her every time we visit Bellingham. Its feels like a home away from home. Large rooms, great library and sitting area and of course an excellent continental breakfast. The bonus of course are the helpful and friendly staff. My wife and I love it here.

Room Tip: No bad rooms at the Fairhaven. At least not one we've stayed in.

The Inn has a great deal of charm, but by comparison to the local chains, is pricey, especially for a one night stay. I agree with previous reviewers that the place has the feel of a large B&B or an old hotel, without a B&B style breakfast. The building is vintage and there are beautiful old pieces of furniture throughout. To really enjoy the amenities and spaciousness you need more than a one-night stay. You can have tea, coffee, or cocoa in the living room and read the papers or play a game. I would choose water view side, not so much for the view, but for the off street location of those rooms. The street side was a bit noisy, but it did not last too late into the night. The rooms are large, the bed linens, and bathroom products are quite luxurious and bathrobes are provided. The breakfast is, what I would consider sparse, boiled eggs, various things to toast, extra large muffins (a la Costco) and the option for a Belgian waffle with fruit topping. Parking is behind the hotel and not all under cover. If you have a need to stay in this area of Bellingham for more than one night and want a comfy living room and bed to come home to, this could be your place. It could also be good for a romantic weekend get away.

Hotel is very nice, friendly staff, good size rooms. Continental breakfast was the best I've had in a while. Wonderful library with fireplace to make for a relaxed afternoon or evening. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would stay there again.
