The Manor House Inn is a beautifully presented period hotel with very helpful staff. I booked early so that we could have the ground floor room in the main house to avoid the stairs. In spite of the fact it was adjacent to the front door we were not bothered by any noise.
When we checked in, the on duty inn keeper gave us a tour of the property and invited us to make ourselves at home - which we did, relaxing in the beautifully furnished parlour with the complimentary afternoon tea. Breakfast was a daily surprise as, in addition to the usual juices, cereals, fruit etc there was always one or two hot dishes and freshly baked goodies.
Our bedroom was not huge but big enough for a couple of easy chairs as well as the comfy bed. Bathroom was small but had everything we needed. No TV in the bedrooms but there is a TV in one of the loft rooms that guests are able to use but who needs to watch TV on holidays! For a bigger room, plus TV you could always book one of the garden cottages in the grounds. Wifi was complimentary and fast.
Location was excellent - far enough from the busy port area but really only a couple of blocks from everything you need in the township.
A number of the guests seemed to be return clientele and I'm not surprised. After a tiring day hiking and sight seeing it is very pleasant to return to such a comfortable and pleasant inn. Would definitely stay again if in Bar Harbor.
