Stayed for 3 nights at the start of a touring holiday in New England and couldn't have made a better choice. We booked parlour room 2 which was on the second floor so not suitable with those who have difficulty climbing stairs. The room was very tastefully decorated with comfortable bed, spotlessly clean and well maintained. The en-suite bathroom offers all the necessary toiletries with a lovely walk in powerful shower. James is a very welcoming and knowledgeable host with plenty of tips for 'must see' sights and places to eat. The shared kitchen between the rooms on each floor is a fantastic idea with a great choice of breakfast items and access to tea/coffee as and when required. The location is ideal for touring the fantastic city of Boston and within walking distance of many of the sights if without transport which we chose to be. I would have no hesitation in recommending 'The Gilded Lily' to anyone and would certainly stay again when we revisit which I hope we can.
