Had tea at the Silver Fountain Inn today and I could not be happier with our experience. From the original architectural details that flow through the entire property to the expansive tea assortment to the delicious menu to the pleasant conversation and care we received..we left planning our next visit. If you are looking for more than a coffee shop...

You two were both gems to meet and serve here at the Tea Parlor and thank you for the rave review! The best part about my job is I get to make new friends every single day! Keep an eye out for our upcoming Special Tea Events, hope to see you again soon!

The owner Pam was very friendly and inviting. The room was very nice with alot of antiques. It was spotless and well appointed. Pam had cookies and coffee out when we arrived. She had a large assortment of loose leaf teas which my wife absolutely loved. Pam asked what type of things we liked for dinner and was able to...

We just recently had our wedding in Dover, NH and stayed at the Silver Fountain Inn. What a blast! The wedding party stayed there the first night and we loved being together in the comfy, quaint and historic Inn. It was a great backdrop for pictures before the wedding and we even had our post bridal brunch there the next...

What a beautiful Inn. Our stay was wonderful and the innkeeper and staff were great. This was our first time at the Inn, but it most certainly won't be our last. We felt right at home the whole time we were there. Pam, Jim and the executive chef Kaley were most accommodating. You can't go wrong staying here.

A traditional New England Victorian inn with modern touches. Pam was most hospitable. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and the shower powerful. The inn is a short stroll to the humble centre of Dover. You won't regret skipping the accommodation in nearby Portsmouth in favour of the Silver Fountain!

This is the most pleasant bed and breakfast I have ever been to. The building is so beautiful, the rooms are all unique and the bed was so comfortable it was like sleeping in a cloud. Pam was very friendly and accommodating.

As the title says, this is an absolutely beautiful and perfectly immaculate inn -- despite what another reviewer said, I don't see how it could possibly be any cleaner! -- and the hosts, Pam and Jim, could not have been friendlier or more gracious. (Jim even reheated some restaurant leftovers for us and gave my husband a tour of the...

I had a chance to get away for a girl's weekend. Pampering, shopping, nice dinners and adventure. The Silver Fountain Inn was a great way to start off the weekend. We lucked out and were able to get a room on a Friday night. We were pleasantly greeted by the host Pam who showed us the beautiful Victorian inn and...

What a fantastic place! My friend and I were lucky enough to get a room here on a very busy weekend in September. The owners are delightful and there were pleasant surprises around every corner. First, the key code on the porch door added a feeling of security knowing that access is limited to guests. The inn is decorated in...

We arrived at the Inn around 7.00pm. There was a note stuck to the door, letting us know the code and which room we were going to be in. The room was very small and stuffed with furniture so we had to put one case on the bed, take out what we wanted and then put it back on the...

“Long staircases so try for a first floor room if you don't like to climb stairs.”

“Avoid the Duchess”
  • Window faces a busy street, bathroom behind the door. Move the chaise to get to either.
  • Appearances can be deceiving ... pretty, but lumpy bed
