“Elegant and Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2011

This charming B&B is well located - only 25 minutes walk from Fishermans Wharf - and in an up market neighbourhood. Plenty of great local restaurants to choose from and boutique shopping. Local transport a few minutes away, so no need for a car.
Breakfast is ample ( we had bagels with smoked salmon one day , french toast the next and omlettes the third - as well as fresh cut fruit platter and banana bread each morning).
A very nice touch was the wines and cheese late afternoon , eaten while sitting in the lounge room listening to classical music).

My husband and I just returned to New Jersey from a lovely stay at the cozy, centrally located Union Street Inn. Herb's warm welcome and great lunch recommendation at check in, Kit and Jane's freshly prepared and beautifully served breakfasts (they took good care of my diet restrictions!) and David's evening reception were the cherry on top of the charming garden, clean and well appointed rooms and great location.

There was a Brita water pitcher in the room, our room (the Holly) was cleaned daily, lovely classical music filled the inn, newspapers, magazines and books filled the parlor and snacks and hot/cold beverages were always available.

Our only regret...that we booked a flight home! We hope to return sooner than later!

We had a lovely stay at the Union Street Inn. The staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great and the afternoon wine a cheese went down a treat. It's easy walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, for those that don't mind walking. There nice places to dine close by. All in all we had a great time here, I would definitely recommend a stay.

We have never stayed at a B&B before, so this was our first experience. The inn was very nice, lovely back garden. We especially enjoyed Kit, the woman who met us and was there the first two days of our five day experience. She was not the owner, but the house manager, and frankly, i wish she would have been there the whole time. The couple who owned the Inn was there the rest of the time. The woman was pleasant, if a little harried and emotionally cool; the man was honestly very standoffish, and not chatty at all. I didn't care for him. If I spend 1500 dollars for five days stay, I want to be treated like Kit did, not ignored like he did. The food was decent, but not overly wonderful. The evening wine was good.
I doubt we'll stay there again.

This inn is well located with easy access to rest., shops, and to sights. A friendly staff, comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast in a lovely yard. If u are sensitive to noise avoid the rooms facing the front.

One:The building is a lovely old house made into a very comfortable home (and garden!)where you can relax and feel comfortable away from the bustle of the city.
Two:The location,great restaurants and little shops proliferate in the area around the Inn,we felt very at home here and could have stayed for months!
Three:The people.
Jane,Kit and David combine to provide a great welcome and seem to attract a never ending stream of interesting people who you end up meeting at Breakfast or the evening wine and cheese hour.
We will be back!
