Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we will post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We will also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉I am afraid we are so used to having tea and coffee making facilities in the room and a TV that it was a disappointment not to have them and would have liked them as an option. Bathroom was tiny!
눇Beautiful view, nice bar with views over the gardens and water, good informal food at the bar. comfy room and bed, very quaint.
18 October 2016
눉It cost a bit more than we wanted to spend but that was to be expected, I guess, for the area.
눇We loved the overall experience staying at this beautiful historic inn! We literally found it by accident traveling from NH to Bar Harbor and so pleased that we did! The staff was top notch and so helpful with the little things we needed! The view from our room and balcony was just breathtaking as we are from Florida and haven't seen the leaves change in several years. Loved it!

눉The budget room was small, uncomfortable, noisy and cold. Staff was not particularly nice and when we asked for suggestions for hiking they were not helpful, and rather they tried to sell us a 10$ map of the park. Maine has a lot of nice places to stay. This one is not recommended
눇The restaurant was really really good, based on international standards. Recommended for dinner!
1 October 2016
눉We stayed on the 4th floor. The tub shower head was barely spraying and difficult to wash hair and get soap off with.
눇The view was very nice. Staff was very helpful. Having hiking just minutes away was great.
25 September 2016
눉Would go for larger room next time. #132 was cramped and very noisy...from service entrance.
눇Love the charm..for an historic place it is in good condition. Can't beat location
9 September 2016
눉I was awoken in the middle of the night by by a terrible cooking smell that likely came from kitchen below. Thankfully the window fan helped.
눇Loved the balcony and historic charm of the room and hotel. Restaurant had great outdoor seating with a water view.
2 September 2016
눉The room we had was very antiquated. Stuck in paste era. That may be part of the charm for some, but we found it a bit difficult especially for the price.
눇Great view from the deck of the restaurant. Food was delicious. Very nice to have dinner and drinks at same place where we were staying. No need to drive. Gardens near by were beautiful. Lovely welcoming iced drinks and coffee and tea available all day in lobby. Romantic spot.
31 August 2016
눉Very disappointed with the street noise, had to keep windows open with no AC! Lack of sleep because of it! Wallpaper was literally falling off the wall in bathroom (which was tiny!) Way way overpriced! I love charm but this was rundown needs updating! Note: we were in a "cottage" which was unexpected from what we booked for.
눇The breakfast buffet was fine, a nice view from the deck. Most of the staff was friendly.
10 August 2016
눉The room was small but romantic. No air conditioning. The bathroom shower was horrible. Weak water pressure and it was a 4 footed tub so when you stood in the tub the yucky shower curtain touched you. There was a locked door to the next room but light came through the keyhole and under the door so it didn't feel completely private.
눇Breakfast the first day was to die for......Maine blueberry pancakes.... Great view and private small deck.
8 August 2016
눉A lot of noise outside our room early in the morning. Delivery trucks I think. Also we wanted to have dinner in the restaurant the first night we were there and they could not accommodate us. I think if we were paying guests at the inn, we should have been taken care of.
눇Loved the view of the harbor, the breakfast was excellent. Our suite was lovely!
22 July 2016
눉Parking can be a challenge, no cell coverage. Need assistance To use the elevator....on the pisitive side, you'll get lots of exercise.
눇Lovely rooms across from their exquisite garden. Excellent breakfasts with a view to die for.
18 July 2016
눉Impossible to get from inn to town! no service available. a free shuttle from town but very limited hours, and we were practically hitchhiking all the time and stressed. the inn should figure this out and provide a shuttle or rides!! Way too far to walk with suitcases and bags from the harbor where we arrived by boat. No A/C surprised us on the hottest days of the year. not comfortable at all.
눇Liked food and wine on porch
9 July 2016
눉Rooms need updating - paint and wallpaper, more substantial furniture.
눇This is an older, historic property in need of some cosmetic updating. The wallpaper was applied slap dash and is badly peeling, the paint is chipping, the window screens are ill-fitting and/or have holes, the furnishings are old, but not "period." With some effort this place would be excellent. As is, I loved it for its location, the old bathroom appliances (small wall sink, claw foot tub), it's nostalgic atmosphere and its excellent service. The staff were terrific. We'll be back.
22 June 2016
눉The breakfast was cold each morning. Not sure why they never lit the buffet burners.
눇Loved the linens and the view is amazing. Also the beautiful botanical garden across the road. Very close to Acadia National Park where we kept our horses.
3 November 2015
눉The facility is very old, thus bathrooms too small, not functional; bathroom could not use mirrors, etc; no tv or internet; considering the building, very over priced, better values in Bar Harbor.
눇Location and staff; however the area is very isolated, with little activity.
26 July 2015
눉elevator primitive, wife, who has suffered a stroke had difficulty with the staris. I don't believe the inn is in compliance with the ADM act. The bed was ok, except that, the heavy quilt was too hot and without it, the sheets were too cold.
눇location and tennis with Mr.Granholm food,, view. nearby gardens
5 June 2015
눉We booked a suite for my family and small dog, but when we arrived the suite was not available.
눇Staff was accommodating after it made a mistake on our reservation. We were there at the beginning of the Inn's season and it felt as though there were kinks to work out.
11 October 2016
눉It was a dump!! My husband says he Iwill highly recommend to his ex-wife.
눇We liked the location - that was it!
17 September 2016
눉3rd floor rooms could be redone. Wallpaper dated. It's in need of refreshment in decor.
5 September 2016
눉I thought the breakfast should've been much better given the price of my stay. I thought facility was very overpriced.
25 August 2016
