“A hurried breakfast!”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

We spent a night in this beautiful old mansion, which once belonged to the mayor of the city. The service was excellent, the place was well maintained and clean. No complaints other than the breakfast hours. Indeed, the breakfast itself was delicious. In such places breakfast time expands up to three hours. Two hours is a reasonable time space too, but an hour is unacceptable. In Carriage House Inn you are supposed to have breakfast between 7.30 and 8.30. Mind you, this is not a city hotel for businessman, this is a place you'll choose for staying during a vacation. If you happen to sleep late, there is no chance that you can eat something when you wake up. Whoever runs this lovely place should keep in mind that when you're having a vacation you don't want to feel like you're living with the rules of a military base camp!

Room Tip: Don't prefer the upper floors since they are warmer in summer time and the old style air conditi...

I have stayed at many B&B's in the Northeast. This one was not my favorite experience. First the quoted price on the website was $99. , but when I registered it was $20. more. The rooms were barely adequate - television was from the last century. The breakfast was slow in service and not exciting - packaged jellies, cold eggs , and watered down coffee.
The staff was friendly and the house was interesting - but that is all the positive things that I can offer.

Room Tip: Stay away from the standard rooms

We stayed at the Carriage House on June 23 on our way to Nova Scotia. Our host was very friendly and helpful, even helped me with the luggage on our arrival. The room was very comfortable and clean. The house was gorgeous and steeped in history which our host was very familiar with. Walking distance to a great restaurant. Our host made our reservation. Breakfast was wonderful. We were given a choice of breakfasts. The food was superb and plentiful. I would definitely stay at the Carriage House Inn again. Thank you to our host.

We enjoyed our stay in the Inn. We were received friendly and were well informed about use of the house and our room. The room was nice, the bathroom adequate, the breakfast excellent. To our pleasant surprise, it was also very quiet, thought B&Bs are usually less well sound insulated as hotels.

The Carriage House Inn has changed ownership in the last year, and the previous walls of art have disappeared to be replaced by the new owners' collections. The food and menu remain much the same - a high quality breakfast in a pleasing setting. The new breakfast table has stools instead of chairs, and tends to be uncomfortable, especially for older persons.

The rooms remain small and comfortable, though they are showing signs of wear. Wifi is available throughout. Not all rooms have baths.

Room Tip: You must ask if you wish a room with a bath.

Stopped overnight in Fredericton at the Carriage House having booked at the last minute. Our hosts were gracious and accommodating. Our room was small but comfortable, the decorations included some local art.The main floor was furnished with antiques in keeping with the great rooms in homes of this age. Breakfast was tailored to each guest and tasty. We'd recommend this B&B to others
