Angela and her team have done a fantastic job with the Inn in recent years. My wife and I have been coming to Grafton for years and the consistence of the service is one of the things that stands out. The amenities and charm of a tiny village is what'd you expect of a town the size of Grafton. But...

Stayed for three nights this year. Jay the owner is very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are spacious and what you need when on a business trip although the wifi only works when outside the room - could do with upgrading. Hunters Grille and Tap, the bar/restaurants the inn, however, is fantastic in all aspects. Great range of drinks, good...

....this is the sort of thing they like. Upon arrival for a family event the next day, we spent a rainy late afternoon reading in our large, clean, cozy room overlooking the village green. This place bears no resemblance to a luxury property nor to a national chain. The overstuffed genuine vintage armchairs are slightly threadbare, as are mine at...

We stopped in on a Saturday evening, The burgers were not done as asked and the french fries were soggy with oil. Even though a new owner has taken over in the past year I was given a worn menu that was ripped at the seams. This establishment has had quite a few owners in the past years but remains...

We thought we'd stay here as a lovely alternative to s Best Western or Holiday Inn Express when visiting our son for college parents weekend. What a terrible mistake! We were scheduled to stay in Room 7 on the third floor and we checked in and dropped off our suitcase. My initial and immediate reaction was OMG " I am...

First time here since change in ownership. We enjoyed the twin lobster specials so did not have a chance to check out other menu items. Management had to help service the table, which was a nice touch, considering we were there on a typically slower night.

Hotel staff not the friendliest or helpful. Screwed up our billing information and gave us a hard time when we tried to work it out. Woman working the front desk was also tending the bar in the next room. I guess I would be stressed too if I were trying to do 2 things at once. Had a room at...

Who Knew the Hunters Grille & Tap would be so darn good. A busy little restaurant-bar in a Historic Inn. Sporting new ownershi and an amazing menu. Right now....Summer Menu includes: Maine Lobster, Steamers, Fried Clams, Mussells, to name a few and this is everyday at prices so very reasonable. Live music nightly. You must give it a try. You...

The restaurant was very good. Our stay at the Inn was very bad! I would strongly recommend never staying there. Our bed broke three times because the frame was not made for the bed and it was rigged with rope to help the mattress stay on. First time my husband sat, it broke, two more times the same evening. We...

Andrea, I am so sorry to hear about your issues as we were not aware that there was a problem with the bed or that the AC leaked, and of course they will be addressed now that we know. As far as the sheets, go, I can assure you that they are washed after EVERY guest. I am publicly apologizing...

My husband and I felt relaxed and accommodated right upon welcome. We had the overall sense that the staff took pride in the place; they were happy to work there. Our spacious room, across from the main inn and near the lovely swimming pond, had quiet A/C and good strong wifi (the Verizon signal was totally gone in that area,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An old historic Inn with lots of character that's been in continuous operation since 1805. It sits right on the Common in the historic part of town. Very quaint! The quiet third floor is reached via an elevator and houses rooms for lodging, while the first floor houses a tavern called Hunter's Grille & Tap and a Restaurant with working fireplaces. There is also an outdoor dining patio, a billiard's room and a function room. ... more   less

“For multiple couples or families traveling together, staying at one of the houses is absolutely wonderful. Loved Woodard (stayed upstairs)...kitchen at Woodard is only so-so, but if you don't plan to make a lot of meals there, it serves the purpose. White Gates is over the top excellent and quite nicely secluded and has a very large kitchen. We regularly cooked for the entire family (17 people)”
