“Beautiful Inn with gorgeously decorated rooms about 20min walk from Harbour front”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 via mobile

My husband and I recently stayed in The Pomegranate Inn on an overnight stay in Portland. Henry was very welcoming and gave us good tips on where to go in Portland for sightseeing and dinner that evening. The Inn itself is fab - an old Victorian house - the rooms all have lovely high ceilings (aside from the top floor), the decor is really quirky and different, a very refreshing change from the norm, attached is a photo of room 6 which we stayed in which was fantastic. Breakfast was very good - 3 courses with choice of hot dish (in our case banana & choc crepes or scrambled eggs with goats cheese & peppers)I would definitely recommend the Inn, only slight drawback is location which is in a residential area a good 20 min walk from the harbour front. We had no issue with parking - got one of the 3 spots available but otherwise from 11am - 5pm 2hr parking on the street.

Thank you for your review and kind words. We are glad you enjoyed our eclectic, arty inn and the service of henrY and Erin. They are well-versed on the things to do, see and eat in Portland and it sounds like you made the most of your visit to our great little city. Breakfast is a signature event at Pomegranate Inn and we are so pleased you found it to be tasty. We appreciate your recommendation to friends and family.

My wife & I had a wonderful experience staying here at the Pomegranate Inn this past weekend. Erin & Henry were very gracious Hosts. They were friendly and pleasant and were wonderful breakfast gourmet cooks. The Inn was and is extremely clean. They were creative in their menu selection and food quality presentation was second to none. Eris is a great pastry chef. We were close to Old Port and most everything was walking distance away. The Inn was full of Antiques and each room had a personality all of its own with Hand Painted Walls and wonderfully paired antique eclectic decorations. Will defiantly stay there again!

Sounds like you greatly enjoyed Erin's baking. That's wonderful. We are so pleased that you found our Portland Maine inn to be both welcoming and full of eclectic personality. Those hand-painted walls are truly unique, aren't they? Thank you so much for your recommendation. We hope to see you again the next time your travels bring you east to the ocean!

Very comfortable, friendly hotel, well placed, nice places to eat close by. Great breakfast and very helpful staff. We arrived late, having got lost and Adam came back to open up and show us around. Lovely lounge. Comfortable rooms.

The Inn is slightly off the beaten path of downtown Portland but only 10 minutes by car. It is located in a nice neighborhood of architecturally interesting buildings. The furnishings and décor are great. Our room (Number 1) was well appointed and we did not need anything that was not provided. Although I think it was a full house when we stayed it was very quiet. The breakfast is from 8:30-9:30 but you can go down at 7:30 if you prefer to sit with your coffee earlier. The 3-course breakfast was very good: citrus salad and juice to start, a blueberry muffin and then a pesto omelet or apple pancakes.

Out of a sense of guilt (at having relied in TripAdvisor so much, but contributed so little) I am catching up with reviews now 11 months old, and from recent comments I think that this inn might have changed hands. But when we stayed in it convenient for those with a car (but would anyone be in Portland, ME without a car?); it provided a warm welcome and an excellent room. Parts felt slightly like an arts-and-crafts museum, and the breakfast became something of an art form, but I would stay there again if going back to Portland/

This was our first visit to Portland. The location of the B+B meant a drive to most of the near by attractions and eating places were limited. The accommodation however, was beautifully decorated and very unique. The breakfast was prepared by Erin and Henry and was delicious and unusual.
The mattress on the double bed in room 3 was not very comfortable when 2 people in the bed(dip in the middle)

Room Tip: If travelling with a partner beware of room 3's matress

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed our eclectic decor and the wonderful service of henrY and Erin. We are looking into the mattress situation in Room 3. While our location is not in the heart of the Old Port, it is a short (8 minute) stroll to the Arts District and 15 minutes into the Old Port.

My fiancee and I stayed here for a weeknight. The decor is great, the staff (owners?) were friendly. There is only an hour for breakfast in the morning, but that's because it's table service. And the food was great! There were about 10 others at breakfast, also.
