We have been traveling each summer to Southamton for about 10 years at least once or two times each simmer. We always have been booking either room or cottage at House 1708 bed and breakfast hotel. It situated right in he middle of the Southampton village offering traditional "Hampton flare" with pice of some American History. Booking with House of 1708 offers the tag to almost all quite expensive beaches, our favorite is a Cooper Beach, $50 fee per car, with the tag from hotel it is free. Te last time we stayed in 2015 at the end of the August. The biggest disappointment was an actual breakfast, even though the place is called bed and breakfast, there was no decent breakfast was served at our last visit. The stuff told us something unclear about new rules why they could't make scramble eggs, or boiled eggs and offer something simple like pice of ham and cheese on a bread which every place around offers ... the bottom line, now breakfast is bad at least compare to what they have been offered for so many years. Good thing we stayed in the cottage which has a small kitchen and had been taking about breakfast ourselves. Looks like a simple breakfast was to much to ask, even though we had been paying $550 per night ... go figure this is Hampton.

Room Tip: Plan to have a breakfast elsewhere

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We always appreciate input from our guests. We are sorry about your disappointment with breakfast. County guidelines for properties of five or more units (small hotels) have mandated changes. Since you felt our staff did not clearly explain the reason for the changes to our usual breakfast, I am sorry you did not speak to me directly as I would have been happy to address the matter. As a repeat guest, I would hope you are aware that we make every effort to ensure that our guests have an enjoyable stay.

We stayed at the 1708 House for one night in Southampton (we regret not staying longer!). The Hotel is very charming and beautiful inside and out.

The room was well kept, clean and very comfortable. Our only tiny complain there would be that the pillows didn't have much to them.

While you have access to your own room you also have access to the common areas of the house as well which was nice to look around and see, or just sit and relax. They offered free onsite parking, a complementary beach pass to Coopers Beach, and free wifi which was great and very helpful.

Breakfast is also included which offered bagels, fruit, granola bars, quiche, yogurt, coffee, tea, juice, etc. During the afternoon they also offer afternoon tea and some snacks which was nice.

The next time we are in the area, we will definately be staying here again! Highly recommended.

Charming, lovely place to stay right in the center of Southhampton but amazingly quiet as well. Rooms were big, beds large and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. All the rooms had private bathrooms.

I love the 1708 House! This was our second stay and it was just as good. The accommodations are quaint, clean and welcoming. The location is perfection as you can walk to town and a beach pass comes with your stay which is like gold! Breakfast is always delicious with and assortment of pastries, bagels, yogurt, fruit, cereal and eggs made to order! Great coffee and tea, cookies and cheese at 4. There is a great backyard space if you want to pick up lunch and have it outside. We had room 7 which we loved on the second floor. If you're looking for cute, quaint, easy and relaxing this is the place!

Room Tip: We liked room 7 on the second floor. The window faced the driveway, but the hotel is small so there isn't a lot of activity there.
