The Tolland Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Tolland B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 July 2011

Stayed for a night in the room facing the street. There was considerable traffic noise in the morning, which is likely to disturb light sleepers. The rooms in the back of the inn are priced higher and may reflect the cost of quiet. The inn and room were quite charming, and the innkeepers friendly in a New England sort of way. But the biggest disappointment was the bathroom in our room. The shower head was one of those ultra low flows that hopes to fool you by substituting air and high pressure for water, but the spray felt like needles and was difficult to stay under - and I'm a guy. My wife gave up after 90 seconds. Didn't see the point of putting a 50 cent shower in a $150+ room. Would the proprietors rather have us draw 50 gallons of water for the bath - twice? (Didn't check though to see if the tub worked.) Really left a feeling of being let down.

Room Tip: Room 6 faces a busy street that's noisy in the morning; also has a crummy shower.

As B&B owners ourselves, we were very pleased with everything about our recent stay. The innkeepers were very friendly and quite helpful with pointing out places of interest and where to eat. We were given maps that were very helpful on our adventures. Stephen & Susan are very gracious and charming hosts. Stephen's woodworking skills are amazing!

We planned our stay at the Tolland Inn to break up a long drive from the Philadelphia area to Northern Maine. We couldn't have asked for a nicer stop! The inn itself is beautiful, including a lot of original woodwork and restoration by the owners, and breakfast was outstanding. Definitely a fantastic weekend getaway option.

My wife and I have stayed at this B&B several times over the years and have also brought friends there when traveling together and have recommended it to others. We live north of Boston. It is an ideal place to rest on the way to NYC if one is going there for an opera or a show, allowing you to arrive in NYC rested without having to spend a night in the city and pay city rates. The owners, Steve and Susan are friendly, interesting people. Steve is a master furniture builder, commissioned by the Boston Symphony to build a new organ enclosure, and has build all of the fine and comfortable canopied beds in the inn. Breakfast is served at a large common table that invites friendly conversation over delightful baked goods, fruit, cereal, and coffee. I am an early riser and have often sat by the fireplace with coffee and computer, relishing the quiet, traditional surroundings. Susan's family was in the inn business on either the Vineyard or Nantucket...can't remember which. But she and Steve have it down, as it were, and we always look forward to seeing them and sharing their hospitality.

Room Tip: Tell them you have friends in Nahant.

An inviting and relaxing room with loads of charm, a hot tub to dye for and a sumptuous breakfast served by a gracious host and a hostess who was warm, fun and helpful. I am so looking forward to a return trip.

This is a wonderful inn - the proprietors are an incredible couple. Steve has handcrafted much of the gorgeous furniture found throughout the inn. Susan was a wonderful hostess, offering my colleague and I a nightcap and thoughtful conversation after a long day of work. It made us feel as if we were on vacation instead of a business trip.
The inn is very beautiful. It's tastefully decorated and very well cared for. The rooms are large and super comfortable. I stayed in the Nantucket Suite where the bed, linens, and little extras like robes in the room were all excellent. Not only that - there was the unexpected surprise of a hot tub for my personal use!
It was in a perfect location for our trip - we were visiting the UConn campus which is very close.
I will absolutely go back in the future and will recommend this inn to friends, family and colleagues alike. I'm only sorry I couldn't stay longer to experience the lovely sun room, backyard and more of their hospitality.

We happened upon the Tolland Inn while visiting our daughter at college. We couldn't have been luckier. Steve and Susan were warm, friendly and helpful hosts. Our room was just lovely--so many special touches. We hope to return soon.
