We were delighted to return to the Inn. It is such a delightful place to stay as it feels like home. There are snacks available in the Inn's living room all day. In the morning there is a breakfast provided that has many choices and a choice of places where you can eat. The Inn is quiet and close to...

My wife & I had a wonderful stay at the Bertram Inn the week of june 15th. The room we stayed in was very charming & clean. The staff was friendly. The location was perfect for us to attend a Red Sox game and to take the T into downtown Boston. Brookline is a nice setting for everyone to enjoy....

Great staff and location. One block from the T and 25 minute walk to Fenway Park. Close to hospitals and colleges. Breakfast was good.

My husband & I stayed here 10 years ago for our 5 year anniversary..and returned 10 years later and the Bertram Inn-though not perfect-did not disappoint. First and foremost, the staff is over-the-top accomodating..5 Stars for them!! The breakfast was more than adequate (provided you happen to like the one hot entree they provide-we couldn't have been happier with our...

We stayed at the Bertram Inn and loved it! The building is beautiful, and the staff was so helpful. I cannot wait to return as it is such a pleasure to return to this welcoming inn after hectic days in the area. The little touches of snacks and breakfast options made it a very pleasant stay indeed!

This is a lovely inn - an older building with beautiful woodwork throughout. The people there were wonderful as was the food (lots of it at breakfast and snacks throughout the day). It was very clean when we got there but the maid service during our stay left something to be desired (i.e. bag of trash left on the desk,...

My husband and I just stayed at the Bertram Inn over the 2012 Boston Marathon weekend, for three nights. Our daughter, who lives nearby in Brookline, was running the Marathon, and she made the recommendation for us. We were thrilled with her choice! We stayed in Room #2, with an ensuite bathroom, just off of the entrance lobby. The spacious...

Great B&B. We have stayed multiple times and have always had a great experience. They are right down the street from the T and town is 5 mins by car. We have brought our dogs with us and even our rabbit. Rooms are nice, they made a fire for us by the time we came back from dinner. We have...

Stayed with my husband for a special anniversary. We have gone for such events in the past to inns upstate ny and in Newport, rhode island. Was hoping for a warm romantic atmosphere. It is fair, not the bed and breakfast experience I have grown to love elsewhere. I should have known , since they do not really serve meals...

First off, I can't imagine how anyone could say anything bad about the staff here!! Right from the start the staff was so accomidating and sympathetic. I stayed here a few nights ago when needed a place close to a hospital where I'm getting treated. It was so nice for them to give a discount and allow us to upgrade...
