“Nice break from business hotel chains!”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

I spent 2 nights at the Pomegrante in early October for a work trip. The Pomegrante provided the perfect break from mundane hotels that cater to business travelers. The location was perfect, the innkeepers were helpful, and the room was pleasantly quirky. This was a great place for me as a solo traveler, but it would be perfect for couples. This inn is part of the Lark family of hotels and is worth exploring.

From everyone at Lark Hotels, let me say thank you for your kind recommendation. We feel that the Pomegranate Inn (and all our properties) offer a wonderful deviation from the norm for business travelers. It is lovely to have you confirm that. Thank you again for your thoughtful review and we hope to see you again in a Portland or at any of our other New England locations!

What a joy! Funky, eclectic, arty and a riot of colour. It's always wonderful to have memories of a hotel as fond as those of the destination. The inn is set in a quiet neighbourhood with an arty, academic feel. All of the rooms are entirely distinct - our room, room 4 was compact with "slightly bonkers charm." The innkeepers, henrY (yes a capital Y not H) and Erin were perfect hosts - welcoming, informative and discreet. Super three course breakfast cooked up by Erin who is clearly a bit of a whizz with seasoning. If you are travelling to Portland treat yourself to a stay with dinner at the brilliant Petite Jacqueline, just a few blocks away.

Yes, Erin truly is a whiz with spices and also an amazing baker (I'm sure you noticed that!). So pleased that she and henrY made your stay extra-awesome and that you felt Pomegranate Inn was a special place in a special town. That means a lot! We're also pleased to hear that you enjoyed Petite Jacqueline. It's such a sweet French bistro so close to us. Joie de vivre!

Clean rooms in an older home which was located in a good neighborhood within walking distance to good restaurants. Breakfast was very good and the Innkeepers friendly and accommodating. The home has a cool vibe and eclectic mixture of art and paint on the walls.

To be honest, we were undecided when we arrived at Pomegranate Inn. First impression on a cold and dark night was of an older unassuming Inn on a quiet street. The charm, warmth and comfort of this great inn started to set in right away. While having an old world charm, the inn and it's innkeepers have a way to make you feel at home and put you into a state of relaxation more quickly than most other places I've visited. Rooms are cozy and comfortable enough where you can choose to either relax in your rooms or in one of the other rooms on the main floor of this expansive place. To top it off, the breakfast that is provided each morning rivals the best fares that Portland or most other places have to offer. I would recommend you not only stay here while in Portland, but go out of your way if anywhere in the area to make this your choice.

Room Tip: If you get a choice and would like some extra room, choose room #8. It has a separate den/reading ar...

It means a lot for you to rave about our breakfast in such a foodie town as Portland! We're blushing! Erin and henrY sure know their way around a kitchen. We are so pleased that your first impression wasn't your last and that you warmed up quickly to our arty, eclectic inn. We look forward to your next visit!

As soon as we arrived we knew we'd made the right choice! The Inn is gorgeous and full of beautifully eclectic art and collectibles. Its situated in a very quiet area. Our room was very comfortable and felt cosy. I loved the hand painted roses on the walls. We slept well. The three course breakfast was delicious and very filling. We are just sad we didn't book more than 1 night and that we didn't get chance to see much of Portland. We highly recommend staying at the Pomegranate!

Creative and charming Inn with great accommodations and food. Easy to find and convenient location. We had two rooms - one in the carriage house and the other in the main home. Both were nicely furnished and comfortable.
