  • Beautiful hotel

    by Kathy8547 on 2018-09-16 12:10 am

    Hotel was beautiful but would be way more appealing if weather was great. Unfortunately we stayed when weather was quite gloomy which brings down the appeal. But staff is lovely, gave us a nice upgraded room and facilities were very pretty! I'm sure the surroundings are stunning if weather coooerates! Still had a very nice time!

  • Seriously disappointed

    I'm a Marriott Platinum Elite and I used 50,000 points to buy down the price of a waterfront 2 bedroom suite from $1,400 to $800. LR and kitchen on main level, bathroom on mid-level, and master with bath and second bedroom on upper level. Nice balcony overlooking the docks. I requested early check in and of course no guarantee but when I checked in at 11:00 I was told they would put a rush on the housekeeping. When we parked in front of the entrance to the room, we saw that housekeeping was in the room so we expected a quick call for our keys. We had lunch in Latitude. Good food and pleasant casual service. We strolled the docks and the property. Finally at 2:30 I returned to the front desk to ask about check in. Now remember, we watched housekeeping finishing the room at 11:00. However, I was again told that the room was not ready. Another promise of a rush. Back to the desk at 3:15. Eureka! The room was ready. I suspect that the head housekeeper needed to release the room and just never got to it.

    After all that wait, we were not wowed. Dirty floor runner in entry. Dirty walls and baseboards. Bugs in showers and tub. No hair dryer in second bathroom. No mirror in second bedroom. And while the kitchen had plates and silverware and utensils and pots and pans, there were no glasses anywhere in the suite, not even in the bathrooms. It took a half an hour for someone to bring us glasses.

    Definitely not worth the price or the wait for check in!

    We had reservations for Salt to celebrate my birthday. We were seated in the back dining room, which is quiet and elegant. Everything the three of us chose for appetizers, entrees, and dessert was excellent. Kudos to the chef!

    Unfortunately, our server was inattentive at best. I expected casual service in Latitude but definitely not in Salt. Her shirt was baggy, untucked, and the over long sleeves dragged in food as she served. Her hair was in a sloppy ponytail more suited to a work out than a fine dining restaurant. She dropped the corkscrew while opening our wine, then dribbled the wine as she poured it. After that first pour, she never refreshed our glasses. It's not that I can't pour my own wine, but that's what I would like in a nice restaurant. Plates were dropped on to the table when served, like a diner. And cleared by reaching across, then stacked on her arms. We watched another server providing gracious service, use a table butler to clean crumbs, pour wine, and present desserts with a birthday candle. Sigh.

    At the end of dinner, she was much more interested in her side work than in us, clearing dinner settings, balling up table cloths, slapping down breakfast placemats, cups, silverware, and plates of jams. Couldn't that wait until after dinner? We would have ordered after dinner drinks, but we felt like we were in her way.

    The room was not worth the price, the service was sub-par. The only reason I rated a 2 rather than a 1 is because the food was imaginative and delicious. Overall a very disappointing birthday celebration.

  • Classy Hotel with Old World Charm

    by Brenna B on 2018-09-12 10:16 am

    From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with elegance and luxury. This is a place that you must stay in New Hampshire. The staff are super friendly (especially the front desk) and make you feel right at home. They did a great job of keeping the charm of the original hotel. Be sure to ask the front desk for the historical pamphlet of the hotel. It has some interesting information in it. Also check out Salt, the restaurant on property. The food is amazing (try the lobster bisque) and the servers are really friendly.

  • Kudos Wentworth

    by Mahj on 2018-09-03 11:14 am

    Stayed for one night to celebrate our anniversary. Staff was professional, welcoming and warm. Our spacious, immaculate room was ready early so we were able to check in and enjoy the outdoor salt water pool. The grounds are lush with a variety of plantings and as you stroll you will find some seating to enjoy the beauty around you. We did not eat on property but the food looked good. It is a very short ride to Portsmouth where a variety of shopping opportunities and restaurants await you. Looking forward to a repeat visit to Wentworth by the Sea.

  • Amazing summer weekend

    We went to Wentworth by the Sea in August for a little get-away.We have stayed at this beautiful iconic hotel many times before and in every season it is lovely.This time, booked the Admiral's Suite on an upper floor and from our room, the view of the ocean was like looking at a painting.It was very clear so we were able to see Star Island, one of the Isles of Shoals.We ate dinner at the hotel's "Salt" restaurant and the food was superb and service was excellent.I hated to leave-- if you want to wrap yourself in luxury, visit the Wentworth Be sure to take your camera-- lots of wonderful photo opportunities!!!
