Reviewed 20 October 2013

If you are looking for a comfortable, clean property in the heart of Edgartown and not in search of a spacious, luxury, service oriented property then you wont be disappointed. But since we were hoping for more in the way of service from the staff, better and reliable suggestions, help with luggage and a room with a place to sit and a desk to use, we were disappointed so we parted early. The much touted breakfast was ok, no better. Our observation that the coffee was not hot lead to the suggestion that our beverage could be warmed in a microwave. To our waitress' credit, when she saw that that suggestion was not to our liking, a fresh supply was made. But at the price charged we thought our disappointment was well deserved.

The Hob Knob is a fine hotel. ��Attention to detail, sense of style, level of service and luxury decor make this one of the finest small hotels we've stayed in. ��The breakfasts are a delight - try Mags Muffin! �� Edgartown itself is the gem of the island's towns. ��I'd be amazed if there is a better hotel in the town, indeed on the island. There are lovely restaurants, galleries, shops, an excellent lively pub. ��The architecture is typical of the area and the harbour is delightful. ����if you want a preview watch 'Jaws' - Amity is Edgartown! �� The hotel has a good gym, a spa offering treatments and they hire cycles so you can stay active if you like! ��Service is excellent but understated, nothing is an effort for them. ��The decor in ��the bedrooms and the lounges (as well as the outdoor deck) are top class and a delight to be around. ��The bed is the biggest I've ever been in and so comfortable. The bathroom is very nicely done and includes free Elemis toiletries. �� I geniunely can't say anything bad about Hob Knob. ��It is a real treat, expensive yes but worth it for the experience, level of comfort, food and service

This inn offers everything you'd expect. The property and inn itself are beautiful. The staff is very courteous and helpful. Maggie is warm and friendly and makes you feel like you're a guest in her own home. Breakfast and afternoon tea are excellent. The location is perfect and makes exploring Edgartown very easy. If there is one complaint, the walls appear to be thin and it was easy to hear other guests. Otherwise, this is a perfect spot. We loved every minute of our stay and look forward to returning.

We spent a week at the Hob Knob with our two teenage daughters, at the height of the August busy season on Martha's Vineyard. We could not have been happier. The hotel is beautiful, the location central, the staff and service are fantastic, the breakfasts are great. For this hotel to be so charming, and so quiet, and to be right in the middle of all the "action" in Edgartown--it's a miracle! We've stayed at loads of hotels, inns, B&Bs on the Vineyard, and it simply does not get better than the Hob Knob. One piece of advice--charter the hotel's Boston Whaler and swim on the beach at Cape Pogue or take a tour of Edgartown Harbor, a fantastic getaway.

During the wedding especially, the staff was extremely accommodating, Jefferson and Maggie were very helpful with things like helping to make the ceremony run smoothly and the cake cutting, etc.
The inn has a cozy, romantic atmosphere. It was a beautiful wedding, thank you Hob Knob!

I've traveled a fair bit and stayed in some interesting places. When you think about staying in a luxury boutique hotel on the Vineyard, you'd expect little quaint tables with fresh flowers and delicious scones and an attentive staff. The Hob Knob is all that and so much more. The coffee, the food, the decor are wonderful but the personal service and the rich backstory of its history make it a true "Vineyard" experience. Of course the attention to the smallest of details take this place to an entirely new level. Little touches here and there that exceeded my expectations.

BTW - I had their take on Eggs Benedict and it was fabulous. I'm a foodie too.

If you're going to Martha's Vineyard - check out the Hob Knob. You will not be disappointed.
