    Pleasant but Not Exceptional

    Very New England bed and breakfast. A few things didn't work in our room(heat and a lamp). Owner apologetic, but didn't offer different room. Dining room better than average.Staff exceptionally friendly. Excellent jazz trio during dinner.

    Loved everything about it

    we booked this last minute to be near our kids staying in Old Saybrook. it was one of the best rooms we've ever stayed in...Room #5, spare but beautifully appointed, large and extremely comfortable. loved everything about it, impeccably clean, great king bed and natural fibers and soft cotton linens, stately architecture, peaceful views, on and on. Sunday brunch in their lovely restaurant was equally great (also not overly extensive menu but omelettes and kale salad and bloody mary all excellent). Best of all was a fabulous live jazz band serenading us with jazzy renditions of theme songs from familiar shows...they were amazing. All in all this was an A+ experience. Cant wait to find a reason to return!

    Lovely location, staff and stay

    I grew up in this area but moved away long ago. Anytime I'm headed back and need a place to stay, I always look to the Old Lyme Inn. It's conveniently located right near the highway, walking distance to the historic district, art galleries, grocery store and shops, etc. The place is well maintained, always very clean, has some nice, unique features you'd look for in a New England style inn, with a great staff that is always friendly and fun.

    Don’t bother ☹️

    Beautiful house maintained to owners exacting standards . Sadly we didn’t feel welcome. Greeted with rules & warnings on how not to lose keys or break the heating ! . Superficiality staff were courteous but only Mike the bar manager was genuinely friendly . Worst of all was their negative attitude to us having used a booking website, very condescending towards us . Ironically the staff had no idea how the system worked & caused no end of confusion with credit card charges & what had & had not been Pre-paid. We had been on a long tour around New England & this was the 5th hotel we stayed at , with none of the others having a problem with booking.com’s system so who does the fault lay with ?. I think the owner should not list on websites until they’ve learnt how the system works. Beautiful clean comfortable house & a great dinner. All credit due to house keeping, kitchen & bar staff. Owner & reception staff could do so much better. If you’re opening your home to guests the least you can do is make them feel welcome . All in all not worth the hassle & Old Lyme itself : blink & you miss it ! . As the inn is right next to the main highway I could have saved a chunk of money by staying at a roadside Holiday Inn or similar . Would not recommend & sadly that’s the first negative review I have ever given !
