Reviewed 30 March 2017

We spent one night in mid March at the Truman Gillet House and it was an enjoyable experience. The inn has a lot of character. We had a very large room that was more than comfortable. The large bathroom had a whirlpool tub with ample hot water, a separate shower and double sinks. Wayne, the inn keeper, is a great...

I thought it would be hard to live up to the great reviews we've been getting, but over time I realized it's a standard my wife Kim and I have fostered and have lived up to. Making the Truman Gillet House B & B a place we would want to stay. For us it's the guests that make it rewarding...

While we only spent one night here it was a wonderful experience. The inn has great old world character, our room was very large and comfortable plus it included a whirlpool tub which was quite a bonus. The inn keeper is very nice, prepares a wonderful and bountiful breakfast and has excellent local knowledge. The resident puppy couldn't be more...

Thank you for your kind words about me and the B & B. My wife and I wanted to make it as if we were staying here with the "old world" charm and a bountiful farm house style breakfast. By your review I guess we did it. People reading your review would be getting the wrong impression of our "resident...

Stayed here on business. Great Inn, cute room, very clean. The WiFi was excellent for business needs. Great hospitality with easy parking and access to nearby restaurants. I would highly recommend this inn and will be staying here again in the near future.

Kim and I try to make our guests feel at home while here as we know what we'd like to have when we've using other B & B's during our travels. It sounds like we're getting it pretty close.

My sister and I had to make an unexpected trip to Granby and found this great B&B on the web. Wayne and Kim could not have been more gracious! We loved staying in the Connecticut Room with the large private bath including a jacuzzi tub. Our breakfast was delicious and they were so gracious in accommodating our dietary requirements. We...

It's always easy to be good hosts when we have such great guests like we get. I know when we go stay at B & B's it the personalities of the hosts that make the stay memorial. Kim and I always try to put ourselves in the guests shoes so that we know how they would like to be treated....

Wonderful breakfast and very warm hosts make the Truman Gillet House B&B worth a stop. The house is small and charming. Built in 1805, the owners have maintained the historical nature of the property from the simple elegant furnishings down to the original doors and door handles of the rooms. A very nice stay. The property is close to a...

Sammy is correct the back bedroom is quieter. It always amazes my how it's all in the guests prospective. I try to always ask how the guest's night sleep was and to my surprise how many times guests tell me that it was the most comfortable bed they've ever slept on. I may mention that I was sorry of a...

Wayne and Kim sure know how to make folks feel welcome! We had a most comfortable and quiet stay in the beautiful Connecticut countryside. Great location in such a quiet setting, yet just a short distance to Bradley International Airport. And, oh, those pancakes!!! Delicious! We would love to go back.

Wayne-TGHBB, Owner at Truman Gillet House B & B, responded to this review

Christine, The pancakes are "Delicious!" because my Mom would invite us kids into the kitchen to make whatever we were requesting to eat. So by the time I got married to Kim I could bake blue berry and black berry pies from scratch with the crust, no store bought stuff here. I could make sour dough bread and have a...

My review is long overdue, but better late than never! I stayed at the Truman Gillet House B&B about a month ago for one night on business. My schedule doesn't allow for me to provide an exact arrival time, but Wayne and Kim were very understanding and accommodating to my schedule. Kim walked me through everything when I arrived and...

Jen was interested in the house so I gave her a brief history of it. Many families have lived here and each owner of this house has left their foot prints in the sands of time. My wife Kim and I are just stewards of the house while we're here. We've had over 650 guests so far stay a night...

We serve fresh fruits, free range eggs (ask to see the different sizes of these eggs from medium to extra super large that we get from a local farmer), Sunny Field organic yogurts and we never use simple white bread. We try to make it a great start to our guests day.

We stayed with Wayne and Kim in late June of 2016 and had a terrific experience. The communication was excellent with Wayne confirming our itinerary prior to our visit. We appreciated the opportunity to notify them ahead of time of any dietary restrictions which we might have. Their home is very relaxing and comfortable with a large common living area...

Wayne-TGHBB, Owner at Truman Gillet House B & B, responded to this review

We ask all our guests some questions so that we can be prepared for their arrival time, dietary needs and directions to a local restaurant. I'm surprised that many guests want the smaller room instead of the larger suite that has so much more. But many guests are coming just to rest there heads and don't need the whirlpool tub,...

We arrived on Friday 17th June. Hadnt seen any pictures of the property before travelling from the UK. We were met by Wayne who is an amazing man.

Is it better late than not at all? Somehow I missed responding to this review, sorry about that. It's such a pleasure to have guests from far away places as they have a different perspective and words on so many things. Even though we were speaking the same language there were multiple times I came upon words I didn't understand,...
