Nice place for a stop over. I have to mention the breakfast first, as it was first class. Amazing omelet, great food. Other people raved about the french toast which looked amazing. Room was nice, clean and comfortable. A bit of street noise, but we did go the weekend of their Jeep rally. The owner I think is a part time comic, jokester - kept us entertained for sure.

Room Tip: try to avoid a room right on Church street.

This place was the least expensive inn we stayed in on our trip to New England. It was also the most basic. The room we had was clean and comfortable, but in a state of mild disrepair, with some peeling wallpaper, and enough slats missing in the window blind (there was no curtain) that we felt the need to dress and undress in the corners of the room for fear of scandalising the passing Bethel residents. The soundproofing isn't great; we were woken at 6am by the sounds of the next-door guest on his toilet. The website calls the inn 'delightfully quaint', which I would suggest could more realistically read 'old and a bit rickety'.

The website also claims that the inn offers a 'world famous full gourmet breakfast', which in this country would earn the inn a stern visit from Trading Standards. The breakfast was what I would expect from a fry cook in a roadside diner, no better.

The biggest drawback of this establishment, in my personal opinion, is the innkeeper. While Sandra is friendly and attentive, Fred is constantly putting on a show, in which he is the star and all his guests are supposed to play the adoring audience. Sandra told us 'Just ignore everything Fred says', and I'm sure his heart is in the right place - but at the end of the day, if his relentless boasting and wisecracking actually makes some of his guests feel uncomfortable (and it does), is he really in the right job? Running an inn means thinking about how best to look after your guests, not trying to convince them how wonderful you are. Perhaps Fred should stay safely out of sight in the kitchen, and let Sandra front up the establishment...

However, given that the inn represents a relatively cheap place to stay, it gets three stars, despite all the drawbacks listed above. It's clean and basic accommodation, conveniently located for Bethel's shops and restaurants. Just don't believe all the hoopla on the website. And don't listen to Fred.

frytlon, Owner at Chapman Inn, responded to this reviewResponded October 19, 2012

While we do value all comments, good or bad, I really don't quite know how to respond to this person. We are a typical New England Inn, and try to offer our guests a clean comfortable room, good surroundings, a good sound breakfast to start their day, a little conviviality, and all at a very reasonable rate. While we take running our inn very seriously, we try not to take ourselves too seriously, and hope that our guests appreciate that(and from most of the reviews, I believe that they do). Apparently this person did not, and seemed to have taken personal exception to me especially. I do apologize if anything I said offended this person. But if one is looking for posh accommodations, Butler service, and High Tea at our rates, we are just not the inn for that person.

The inn itself is very beautiful and welcoming. It's decorated very nicely and is clearly kept very clean. It's a warm and cozy place to relax on a rainy fall day (or any day!). I suppose it's everything you'd want when coming to visit New England.The innkeepers are friendly and will wow you with their intriguing stories. Even on a low budget they were able to provide us with wonderful sleeping quarters. There's a good sense of both privacy and company of others. Over all it provided a couple of wonderful evening and we'll be sure to visit again when we're in the area.

The innkeepers are charming and helpful. We had a two room suite with 3 beds and had excellent space. Nice TV in the bedroom. Would have preferred it in the living room. Free wifi was a bonus! The room is a bit run down with some peeling wall paper and nicks in the woodwork but it was clean. Plenty of hot water but the towels were at bit thin. The common living room was delightful with nice leather chairs, gas fireplace and a TV. Convenient walk to restaurants.

The Inn was very rustic and had a very old-timey feel, which I did enjoy, and did expect considering it's a B&B and not a Ritz-Carlton. The only slight complaint I would have is purely aesthetic: in our room, the paint was peeling in some places, and the bathroom floor had some stains. But the towels were clean, the water was hot (even though it did take a few minutes), and the complementary breakfast was to die for. The innkeeper regaled us with stories of his backpacking expeditions through Kenya, China, South America- basically the whole world- over breakfast that consisted of freshly-made blueberry muffins, homemade bread, toasted with jam and butter, coffee, tea, orange juice, fruit...you name it, it was there! The adorable wolf-like dog the owners had was very friendly and visited everyone at breakfast, just for a quick sniff and the hopes of a dropped crumb or two. We would probably go back again were we ever in the area. Great for the price, if a bit aesthetically displeasing.
