“Great, clean accommodations”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Very clean and spacious room. The Boltwood dining room and food was great!! Swanky and updated. Top quality food. The vegetarian plate was delicious and the presentation of the food was even better. My oatmeal and the local honey was as good as it gets. No need to leave the hotel because Boltwood is a gem. As good as any restaurant in a big city. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Don't forget to ask for the AAA rate. Will save you a few bucks. Great location. Half a block...

A most wonderous place for a wedding, elegant but not at all pretentious,very classy but not stuffy.A magical place for a celebration! The food was delicious and there was what seemed and endless flow of desserts.The rooms were quite comfy and cozy and the bed linens were top notch.All of the staff were happy and helpful to all of us. I can't wait to enjoy another event there.

When the Deerfield Inn was full, I was referred to the Lord Jeffrey in Amherst, MA. Did I luck out! This 1920's inn is not only well-appointed, comfortable (including beds), and good food, but every staff member I encountered was extremely helpful and genuinely friendly. The weather was finally comfortable, and there are several outdoor patio seating areas to choose to have a drink, or dine. A great location for antiquing, hiking, exploring history, (or seeing your child off to Amherst College.) It's also excellent value for the money.

I stayed at the Lord Jeffery Inn for business. The staff for both days was fantastic!! They went out of their way to get us supplies that we forgot, graciously accepted special requests, and kept our coffee hot all day to keep us going. Can't say enough how wonderful they all were! The room was beautiful and I was impressed with the special light and heat/cooling system they installed to save on power.

This is my second stay at the Lord Jeffery and once again it was a perfect stay. The rooms were very well furnished and comfortable. The internet quick, the shower and bathroom modern and clean. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the restaurant serves a great breakfast. My only issue is that the insulation between floors is not fabulous -- I was very glad when the kids above me decided to hit the sack.

Room Tip: We stayed in a very spacious suite on the second floor overlooking the entrance to the hotel -- room...

On Saturday, July 27th, 2013 I stayed with my cousin @ the Lord Jeffery Inn in Amherst, MA. All of the staff that worked there couldn't have been any more helpful. They were all positively terrific. Always had a smile on their faces and were all extremely happy to assist us, no matter what time of the day it was, they were very helpful with our concerns and needs. When we first pulled up to the Inn, we were parked out front. Once we checked in, I moved the car out back and we very easily walked from the car right thru their white fenced area to the room. We opened the door and couldn't believe our eyes. The double suite that we got was amazing. It had two sets of French doors that went out to this stunning sun room that overlooked a patio on the grounds, where we witnessed a gorgeous wedding ceremony going on, all while just sitting having a cup of coffee in their lovely sun room!

The room certainly had everything we needed, that's for sure. It was extremely well designed and definitely well stocked. Everything was thought of. Loved the key card idea with the lights and A/C to conserve power! Thought that was a very cool idea whoever thought of that one! We both slept SO sound that night in their extremely comfortable beds! Enjoyed staying here immensely & wouldn't hesitate to come back. We made reservations when we checked in for 7:00 PM in their 30 Boltwood dining room. We were so glad we made them because it was an AWESOME experience dining there AND their cuisine was to die for good! It was absolutely amazing for dinner. I had the New York steak and it was cooked to perfection. No matter what we got here, looked like a picture on the plate! Dessert was fabulous, it was a Port Cake
with roasted berry compote & mascarpone mousse. Enjoyed every bit of it. The Lord Jeffery Inn in Amherst, MA is certainly one class act! With all the places I've stayed at thru the years, I would say this extraordinary Inn is in a league of it's own! Run don't walk to get reservations at this Inn, you'll really enjoy it immensely here!

After dinner we walked thru the town for a bit & then we strolled back and found two spots on one of the couches right near the fire pit on the patio in front of the restaurant 30 Boltwood, which is located right beside the entrance of the Inn. It was terrific ending the night right there with a nightcap; it couldn't have been any more wonderful at this incredibly stunning Inn! It exceeded all MY expectations, that's for sure!

Room Tip: If you get a double suite, *1 on the elevator is very convenient to get back and forth around the In...
