Loved our stay here. Definitely better than an impersonal hotel. We loved spending time in the living room - there was a gas fireplace, Christmas tree, music, an adorable dog, complimentary coffee/tea/hot chocolate and cookies. Generally very cozy.

We stayed on the 3rd floor overlooking the Steelstacks. Room was spacious enough for us, though it can get a little hot so we ended up needing to crack a window. Everything very clean. Basic toiletries included though no writing desk in this room. Wifi was free and speeds were good. During the night there was some street noise since the mansion is at an intersection of 2 mildly busy roads. In general, doesn't seem like a very walking friendly neighborhood. Also the sun really came streaming in after our first night and the blinds did absolutely nothing to keep it out.

Breakfast also was good - usually a choice of eggs, pancakes/waffles, omelets with a twist. You can also pick something up from the side board - biscuits, yogurt, cereal and there was coffee, tea, juice, and milk as well.

Plenty of parking in the back when we were there. No charge.

The Breakfast part of B&B was excellent. Very comfortable setting. Quaint old building. I am not from here so don't know and don't appreciate the history. The lobby and seating are was nice (gas fireplace going). The service at front desk and for breakfast was excellent. Meeting room area in basement was cool looking.

But - the Bed part of B&B - unimpressive. Old bedrooms and draft windows are ok - but old beds? Come on! Spring for some new springs and mattresses. And the room temperature controls were broken, outdated and ineffective.

Room tip: You're here for the breakfast - enjoy. Use the bathroom exhaust fan to help move air around the hot, stuffy room

We travel to Bethlehem every December and usually stay at the Bethlehem Hotel, but decided to change up this year and stay at the Sayre Mansion. Bed and breakfasts are not really our thing, but our room was VERY large and beautifully arranged. Room 20, in the front, overlooking all of the Bethlehem Steel stacks area. People were very friendly. The breakfast was fantastic. A little out of the way and you really have to drive everywhere from here. That's the only drawback.

Room tip: Best view, front of building rooms (room 20)

This time of year is a good time to stay at the Sayre Mansion Inn: the holiday decorations inside the common areas are beautifully done! We don't usually choose to stay at bed & breakfasts (mainly b/c many B&Bs have shared bathrooms) but we decided to stay here since each of the rooms has a private bath. We selected room 15 which is on the first floor of the main house. The owners warned us that this room is right next to the kitchen and could possibly be possibly be noisy early in the morning (as breakfast was prepared for the guests). So we anticipated this being a possibility, but it turned out not to be a problem: we woke up to our alarm clock at least an hour after they had started working on breakfast. The other feature of this room that we wanted was that it has a bathtub (other rooms, except the glass-ceiling room 30, only have showers).
The room was cozy and had a thick mattress with feather down bedding.
The breakfast they served was excellent, with parmesan scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, milk and fruit juices. Also available at breakfast, and all day long too were hot beverages (coffee, assorted types of tea, hot cocoa mix) and bowls of candies, chocolates, cookies and danishes placed throughout the common areas.
The staff was very friendly.
Be aware that not all rooms are in the main house, some are in the Carriage House next door (we saw guests coming in for the breakfast wearing their winter coats (it's nicer being in the main house, especially this time of year!).
We were pleased with our decision to stay here and would do so again when visiting Bethlehem, PA.

Booked a room here again to stay over after a show at the Sands Casino. Great location, a mile and a half from the casino. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable of the area.Breakfast buffet was very good and you can even order a hot entree.Snacks available all the time and even a warm cozy fire to sit near. We enjoyed our stay so much we booked a room for our trip in December to Christkindlmarket.Looking forward to another great stay.
