Above the Bay at Thornton Adams Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 18 Plymouth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 November 2016

We spent 8 days at this B&B for our honeymoon and although the owner is lovely and the inn is well appointed it was impossible to get an uninterrupted sleep. We were in the blue room and could hear every noise in the house . Consequencently we were wakened during the night and early in the am as people moved in and about the house. Christine was very sweet and even left coffee and fruit and bread out one morning when we wanted to sleep in. The problem was actually sleeping in. The woman that does the cleaning was extremely loud between banging doors and vacuuming. We stay at B& B establishments frequently and have never experienced this before. The other issue was also related to the room cleaning. If we were not up and out of the room early it did not get cleaned . On the days our room was cleaned the bed was straightened but trash not emptied and towels were not replaced . We were dealing with the noise until our final morning when the cleaning lady woke us vacuuming and slamming doors. We decided to check out a day early and went to speak with the owner. We were informed by the cleaning lady that Christine was busy and she would pass on the message. We Left without having an opportunity to explain the situation to the owners.

Room Tip: Perhaps the top floor would be quieter

I am sorry that you felt the need to cut your stay short, we pride ourselves on being a quiet relaxing B&B for people to enjoy and unwind. We do provide white noise machines in each room for those that are light sleepers. Our cleaning staff does not arrive until 10am and generally stays until 1pm so that could explain why your room was not tidied up on one of the days. We will continue to work hard to make for a comfortable stay for all of our guests.

Convenient location with a view of the bay. Decent size room and bath. Newer construction than typical bnbs. Breakfast was served by owner and was excellent! Common area was comfortable. A great place to stay while in Plymouth.

Cannot rave enough about this B&B and Christine! We rented the entire B&B for our wedding party and it could not have been more perfect! The rooms were lovely, the beds were extremely comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Christine was extremely accommodating to our needs as a bridal party-not an easy task! As a bride, it was wonderful to have one less thing to worry about and Christine truly put my mind at ease. The ladies and I got ready in the Jacuzzi suite which was so spacious and gave us plenty of room to set up a few tables for hair, makeup and snacks. The guys hung out around the fireplace downstairs and we used the gorgeous front staircase for our "first look". I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone, but especially to wedding parties in the great Plymouth area.

Could not ask for a better place to stay. The location was very convenient to the Plymouth Plantation & Mayflower exhibit. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. This is a newer home built to be a B&B. Christine is a wonderful hostess and a great cook! Breakfasts were amazing! My one suggestion would be more lighting out back in the parking area.

Room Tip: the green room has a queen bed, tub/shower combo, view of the coast blue room has a king bed, large...
