Our experience differed from the superlative reviews we read prior to arrival. Chalk it down to expectations. We booked and paid for two nights and only stayed for one. The inn and its decor are tired. Our room was the Lawrence and it was quite small, not allowing much room for our suitcases. Details are important to us. The advertised terry robes lay heaped on the bottom of the armoire which held three hangers in total. The pillows were foam and no feather pillows were available. The small Phillips television was old and small. The quality of towels and linens were sub par. The toiletries included a bar of soap, combined shampoo and conditioner, and moisturizer labeled with Chapman Cottage. The gourmet breakfast that included scrambled eggs over tortilla chips and mild salsa was not gourmet. In fairness there were sherry and truffles. Unfortunately these items were not enough to make up for the other flaws including the view from our room which overlooked three large propane (?) canisters. We moved to a well lit, meticulously clean hotel in Portsmouth in a wonderful location near the harbor instead for the same price.
