My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Strawbery Banke on May 14th for our anniversary. The Inn is in a wonderful location and very central in Portsmouth and within easy walking distance to many restaurants, museums and other night time activities. On the front door stoop I noticed the old boot scraper and with a nearly 200 year old house it had many other interesting features. One which we didn't like was a musty smell which greeted us on arrival but once in our room I was glad that the smell seemed to be central to the downstairs den and not our room, which was #4. Our room was large and bright and I loved the window shutters, very authentic to the Inn. The bed was incredibly comfortable but the pillows could have been a little plumper. We had our own private bathroom and while it was small it served its purpose. I would stay here again, with the proximity to the downtown and all the amenities for a rate of $125 I think is was a great deal. We didn't make it down to breakfast in the morning as we loved the comfy bed but at check out I think we missed a wonderful meal from the delicious aroma still in the air.
Many thanks to Sally and her staff for a wonderful stay.
