This B&B is just off the highway, so very convenient. It was lovingly restored. Breakfast was great. The owner was so helpful that, when the taxi was late, he prepared to drive the guest to the airport. Besides the usual amenities, it had tv and central air. Highly recommend it.

We had a splendid time on our recent visit to this extraordinary period B&B. Attention to both the broad experience and the smallest detail earmarked our time at the Robbins House, and we left very happy with our choice. We recommend it without hesitation.

My husband and I stayed at the Silas W. Robbins House while visiting relatives in Wethersfield. The décor, cleanliness, service, and overall atmosphere of this B & B are overwhelming. We have stayed many places world-wide, but the Silas Robbins House beats them all. Bravo to John and Shireen! We will definitely be back.

We came to Hartford for a Bruce Springsteen show downtown. I'm so glad I found a gem. We had the most wonderful stay at this beautifully restored Inn hosted by John and Shireen Aforismo.

The Silas Robbins house was amazing. The house is beautiful and mixes old time feeling with modern amenities. It was totally renovated recently. It was pristine and the owners are wonderful. They catered to our food allergies for breakfast and really went above and beyond. I would DEFINITELY stay here again if I'm in the area.
