What a charming little house in a warm neighborhood. Lovely girlie beds and great tea area! I too was put off my less than friendly front desk. Other than that perfect.

Dear guest, We thank you sincerely for your review. A general meeting with the Innkeeping team took place and some rough edges continue to be sharpened. We have no doubt that the service we provide is up to par with what we’re known for and been offering for the last 25 years and will continue to improve. We’re glad to... More

We loved our stay at The Bertram Inn. We have stayed here before and love the charm of the rooms, the delicious breakfasts and the kind staff. Each time we stay we try a different room and have loved each one for different reasons. They are all beautifully decorated, have very comfortable beds, small but immaculate bathrooms and although located... More

This B and B was recommended by a friend and was not disappointing. The decor is immaculate, the staff friendly and helpful. Rooms are excellent. Close to great shopping and restaurants and the train is minutes away. Would stay there again.

Beginning impression was positive but this didn't last after our first night of a three night stay. Upon returning to the Inn at the end of our second day there was a letter attached to the front door with our name on it and the inscription "Open Immediately." The letter went on to explain that we had inadvertently been put... More

Dear Bruce, We’re sorry to read your review. It all started with a human error. Our Innkeeper that made the mistake still feels awful about it, more so since this is the 1st time this happened in all the time she’s been here. Given the chance, we did all that we could in order to have this mistake fixed. You... More

When we first arrived at the Bertram Inn, we were met by a lovely young lady (unfortunately we forgot her name) who showed us to our rooms, explained that there was coffee/ tea and cookies available at all times in the living room and who was more than happy to help us find our way around Boston and Brookline.

My wife and I stayed at the Bertram Inn for three days in October and we found it a great place to stay. The inn is in a residential area of Brookline and within a few minutes walk to public transit and shops. We found the inn to be nicely decorated in the Victorian style that we both enjoy. We...

Charming, comfortable, uniquely decorated in a late Victorian, early Edwardian style. Generous sized rooms, all ensuite (except #5 whose bath is across the hall), elegant with antiques and nice reproductions, the Bertram Inn is a delight. Coffee and snacks all day long, very nice breakfast, and a lovely staff make this a destination place.
