We had a great time and lovely stay at the inn. We signed up for the jazz package which included the room, a three course dinner of your choosing, plus house wine and an evening at the side door jazz club on the premises. We were so surprised at the level of musicianship! Fabulous! It was a terrific night spent with friends. Old Lyme is about 2 hours from both NYC and Boston in a perfect New England town ,we loved it.

We stopped by the Old Lyme Inn on a snowy Saturday after having visited the Florence Griswold Museum. The area is so beautiful and peaceful. We had lunch in their smaller bar area dining room. The fireplace was lit and the feel was so cozy and inviting. The lunch menu is not large, but there was a little something for everyone. They also offered a very nice wine selection. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. From our window we could see the fire-pit and comfy chairs out front for the warmer weather (we will be back). They also have a nicely done Jazz club in the Inn. We expressed interest in seeing the rest of the Inn, including the newly remodeled rooms and the staff could not have been any more gracious. The whole place is beautiful. We can't wait to return for dinner and jazz and perhaps a stay in one of the rooms.

We arrived in a blizzard, were welcomed, had a great dinner with wine and great room. Very relaxed atmosphere. There was a jazz event in the bar but we retired early. The room was upgraded with very nice amenities.

The food is imaginative and well presented. The waitstaff is attentive and hip. We've eaten in the
bar and the small dining room usually spur of the moment and have never been disappointed. The new outdoor fireplace and drinks area in front of the Inn adds so much to the atmosphere, especially at night. Very gracious and charming but not stuffy.

We have been having family reunions in Old Lyme for years, mostly based at the Old Lyme Inn. 2013 was a great surprise. The inn, while maintaining its traditional charm, has been completely and tastefully redone. Bedrooms, public rooms, restaurant and the new jazz club are excellent. The only downside is lack of breakfast but there is a good cafe nearby.

Room Tip: Try for the corners.

This is our second time staying at the Old Lyme Inn. It has been restored beautifully. Rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed with fireplaces, large bathrooms and comfy beds. The staff is very accommodating. The Side Door, a jazz venue, is very cool. Wonderful music with a New York style club feel. Dinner though is just adequate. Although not very expensive the food needs to be more tasteful. The butternut squash was bland. Rack of lamb was mediocre. The cod cassoulet was tasty though. The owner is a very engaging gentleman so I do hope that the dining experience does improve. It's a great location and place to stay.
