Trip Advisor Review Manor House Inn Oct 30, 2023

A Quintessential New England Inn – Our stay at the Manor House Inn was exactly what we needed. The architecture was stunning, the room was cozy and impeccably clean, the food was delicious and nourishing, the staff was charming and warm, and the area is quintessential New England. When you close your eyes and imagine a Connecticut Inn, this is it. My wife who has a very, very sensitive dust mite allergy registered ZERO reaction which we have never experienced before at any other inn. Thanks so much to the amazing staff. We’ll be back!

Google Review Manor House Inn September, 2023

The service, accommodations, and food exceeded expectations making The Manor House Inn the top choice for accommodations in Norfolk. We were able to take advantage of the New England weather with the cozy porch and appreciated the Tiffany stained glass windows. The interior decorating and cleanliness created an inviting warm welcome feeling and the outside grounds with a fire pit was perfect for a beautiful August evening. The food service was exceptional and timely allowing our group to focus on collaboration and building relationships in a relaxed atmosphere.

Google Review Manor House Inn August, 2023

We were so pleased with our stay here. The service and staff were impeccable. They went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and comfortable. The Inn and grounds itself were amazing. We felt like we were in Europe! The rooms and decor were simply stunning. A LOT of time, effort, and attention to detail to reminisce about the era. We will surely be back!
