“The Ultimate in Serenity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2010

Just spent a week end at the Manchester View hotel. The scenery, and piece and serenity are unmatched. The owners, Pat and Tom Barnett, are extremely conscientious and friendly entrepreneurs who make sure that your stay at the Manchester View is everything you could desire. Thumbs up in every category!

I chose the Manchester View based upon recommendations from two family members. It was absolutely wonderful with a perfect location in the Green Mountains. The room was large, exceptionally clean, and had all of the amenities you could want, in addition to a private balcony with a view of the mountains. The Inn is just a short drive from the Manchester outlets, restaurants, and attractions, including the Scenic Skyline Drive and the Lincoln house. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and will provide all of the information you need regarding things to do and where to dine. This is a very relaxing place, and I would highly recommend it.

We recently returned from a one night stay at the Manchester View. The "standard ($95) room was just that: standard, nothing special, fine for a one night stay.To be fair, I'm sure the other up level rooms are probably more impressive. However, the nicely landscaped grounds and the expansive views are magnificent, and the staff we encountered were all attentive and helpful. One critical observation: the $3 charge for the continental breakfast,although economicly defensible and probably necessary. had a "nickel and dime" feeling about it. Stay for the views. They are exquisite!

I stayed at Manchester View one night this past weekend in a standard queen room. I decided to book it because the reviews seemed mostly positive, the location was good (about 20 min from Stratton Mt, which is where I was going the following day), and it was one of the few places that was available last minute. According to their website, they have a two night minimum; however, I called and spoke to the clerk, and she willingly waved this rule.

Upon arriving, I was ready to rate this motel four or five stars. The room was pleasant: nothing fancy but cozier and more updated decor than any motel in which I've ever stayed. The bathroom appeared recently updated with new tile and vanity. They even provide aromatherapy toiletries one might expect to find at a hotel. Most importantly for me, however, was both the room and bathroom were incredibly clean. For me, this aspect is a must, and Manchester View certainly did this well.

The two main "issues" I had with Manchester View was when we went to sleep (or the lack thereof). Firstly, the mattress was exceedingly uncomfortable; it was only slightly better than sleeping on the ground. Admittedly, I tend to dislike hard mattresses, but even my boyfriend (who never complains) had incredible difficulty staying asleep. It was impossible to get comfortable on the rock of a mattress. Secondly, there was a decent amount of noise at night. Between the fairly thin walls (you could hear the muffled voices, loud footsteps, and water usage of those next door) and the heating system, the noise always disrupted our sleep. Although I would admit that the noise probably wouldn't have been an issue if we had been completely asleep and not tossing/turning due to the mattress.

Overall, this place isn't bad. It certainly has positive aspects to commend it; however, for the price (125 plus tax), you might be better off looking for a B&B (which will cost about the same) in the area. There you might get a better night's sleep and an inclusive breakfast (Manchester View's provides breakfast but charges extra).

Suites give great extra space. Decore is older but very clean and well kept. The kids love the 2 person spa tubs. Indoor skating rink is one mile down the road if you want a break from skiing.

We were 2 couples and took one suite with two queen size bed rooms.

Great Great place, amazing staff, large, clean, tidy and very comfortable rooms.

Fire place is a real treat! And we even had our own private parking space just outside our door.
We loved staying there are can whole heartedly recommend it!

Breakfast was very basic to our taste ($3) so on the second morning we ate out. Your decision, depends if you’re a breakfast kind of person ;0)

Take a look at the pictures....
