We loved this place from the first breath of sea air. This historic grand hotel is a great place for anyone with or without kids or dogs for that matter. The saltwater swimming pool overlooks the ocean where you can enjoy food/cocktails and excellent service. Try the fish tacos! Our kids loved the experience as well. Hopefully this hotel/resort will...

We had a family vacation planned for a week, meeting our parents and siblings with kids, end July early Aug. Realized wrong room for our individual party's size was booked by hotel due to front desk "error". The correct room was avail, so this should have been an easy fix. Manager, Roslyn was rude and unhelpful about situation, although it...

This hotel is a step back into time with a enough adjustments to make it comfortable. If you want charm this is the place. The views are breathtaking. The sevice staff is amazing. There are more little seculded rooms and areas to sit than I can count. If you go with a group check out your friends rooms because everyroom...

My family of 5 has stayed at the Colony Hotel for 4 years for the night before camp drop-off. Its great location on the water and near town make for the perfect quick fix. We also love the generously sized salt water pool. This year it felt better than ever - our room felt fresher and the staff a little...

Stayed here for a few days at the end of June and it could not have been more perfect. The views from the wrap around porch of the brilliant green lawn and of the flowers and the water could not be beat.We also enjoyed the weddings and rehearsal dinners held while we were there even though we were not wedding...

We stayed here for just one night last week, and now all we can think about is going back. Absolutely perfect stay, from the friendliness of the reception staff to the cleanliness of our room, capped off by a yummy breakfast with ocean view. Easy to park, convenient walk to wherever you want to go in Kennebunkport, just a really...

This is a grand old beach hotel restored to its original splendor. There is not a bad view from the place. The rooms were the cleanest I have ever stayed in. We had a room with a separate kids room which was wonderful, but there are also rooms with balconies. You don't need air conditioning when you have the ocean...

This hotel is a rambling, old fashioned, grand hotel. Only open during season, the charming interior and staff make up for the fact that there are no TVs or AC in the rooms. Rooms are very small but comfy and clean. I kept saying that the halls looked like the ones in The movie The Shining with Jack Nicholson. I...

the hotel itself is lovely - seems well maintained and the room was spotlessly clean. The seawater swimming pool was excellent (although there were no other fittness facilities) and the grounds beautifully maintained as well. I was there for a conference and ate breakfast and lunch there for 3 days and one dinner there. The food was up to what...
