“the calm in the midst of the storm”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

I spent two nights at Chipman Hill while attending a very intensive workshop, and at the end of the day, it was just like coming home. The room was lovely and the bed was the best! And the staff was wonderful from the first contact I had on line. Chipman Hill has become my first choice for accommodations in Saint John.

Dear Valued Guest From Fredericton;

Thank you so very much for writing this lovely review.

The sentiment offered in your review is exactly what we are "going for" as we build our suites, furnish them, and look after our guests who stay in them. "A Home Away From Home" is exactly it!

We are very grateful for your extremely kind words, and there will be many smiles of satisfaction on the faces of our staff members when your review is read aloud at our next staff meeting.

Thank you so very much for choosing to stay here at Chipman Hill Suties, and we hope that you stay with us again soon. (Perhaps for a visit that is not so hectic......some "you" time!"

Sincerely

Susan

We have stayed at several Chipman Hill locations, and they are all both distinctive and good value for money. We stayed at Union St. in August of 2013. The Union St. location is as central as one can get in Saint John, and the buildings are fine old Victorian properties. Our suite was well appointed, with all the kitchen facilities we required, and a very comfortable bed. We had views both towards the harbour, and onto Union St.
I definitely recommend Chipman Hill, and this location in particular.

Dear Valued Guest, Hugh, from Dartmouth;

Thank you so very much for taking time to write us such a complimentary review. We were very happy to have you stay with us again, and look forward to your next visit.

It was very kind of you to mention the "distinctive" nature of our business and buildings. We have no "cookie cutter rooms", each one is different, and we try to preserve as much of the historic character of our buildings as possible.

It is wonderful that we are able to offer both a historic building and a harbour view in some of our suites. It is especially grand on one of the cruise ship days!

Thank you so much for choosing Chipman Hill Suites once again, and for taking time to write us this lovely review.

Sincerely

Susan

My partner and I are excited to be returning to Chipman Hill Suites once again as we plan to have a fun New Years Eve in Saint John with friends.
Last year it was great to be in the city core so that we could walk to our party, as well as enjoy beautiful King Square at night. Our room was in the Union St. Suite, which provided a lovely view over the Harbour facing Partridge Island as well as the Boardwalk. I loved the suite, which had everything we needed, from wine glasses to a coffee maker for our first coffee of the day.
We really love to visit my old hometown, especially so because we know we will have an awesome stay at Chipman Hill Suites and the staff are just amazing!

Room Tip: All the rooms we have stayed in are very quiet.

Chipman Hill is a super nice and comfortable place. With an optimal structure and good conservation visitors enter an environment of the nineteenth century. Apartment located in the heart of Saint John near shopping, museum, beautiful squares, bars, banks. The best place to stay when coming to Saint John.

Room Tip: Rooms on the e west side are quieter Higher floors have less A/C unit noise

I arrived in Saint John with my friends ha little over two weeks and I am very satisfied with the service of Chipman Hill . One important thing to be clarified is that the location of the Chipman Hill Suites is very good and is close to everything you might need for the day - to-day , Bank , Markets , Shopping , and more

Family, friends and business bring us to Saint John frequently and one of the high lights of our visit is staying at the Chipman Hill Suites. We have stayed in many of their beautiful historic buildings and have enjoyed suites of various sizes from bed-sitting rooms to three bedroom units. The larger suites are wonderful for visiting grandchildren. The suites have everything you need for housekeeping complete with free laundry facilities, including the detergent. The free wi-fi and cable are an added bonus. We find the location of each building is so convenient a they are all within walking distance of the downtown area. The manager, Marilyn Bountalas, makes our visit that much better by being so obliging with everything we might want or need. She and her friendly staff go above and beyond. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

I spend about one night a week in Saint John and have recently changed my hotel of choice to Chipman Hill Suites. The central location is fabulous and the amenities in each room are consistent and far better than what I was receiving in the large chain hotels. The check in and out procedures are great time savers and the staff are attentive to any problems. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Saint John. I have recommended the Hotel to friends, family and colleagues, with positive responses from all
