Thanks for staying with us and for positive review. We hope to see you again. And yes, we are aware of the hot water taking a while but it's only because occupancy is so low and there is no demand on the system. Normal times and this isn't an issue.

Hidden gem in a great location. Staff was very accommodating. Rooms were neat and clean. Breakfast included was excellent. Already planning a return trip.

Thank you for your glowing review of Newbury Guest House.

Nice place to stay especially if you’re looking for something close to Fenway and in a shopping district. Loved breakfast everyday and the water and coffee available at all times. Rooms were nice; bathrooms were small with little counter space (stayed in a one queen bedroom). Overall good stay!

Nice hotel overall, but the bathrooms need help

Pros: The staff was very helpful and kind. The man who was sweeping the parking lot even helped us back up and was very kind to my boyfriend and I.
Cons: The bathrooms, and general cleanliness of the hotel itself. There need to be some pretty severe improvements to the bathrooms.
Location: The location was fabulous for the price, it was right on Newbury and a five minute walk to all the best stores in Boston!
Keeping in mind the hotel was under renovation during out stay, there was still an excess of dust in the hallways, elevator and on the walls. The staff was very nice and helpful though, and they were quite good about moving cars in order to get in and out of the crowded parking area in the back. The bathrooms were clean but terrible. The shower head was weak, and the tub would fill with water while showering because the drains were not working properly. We had to flush the toilet several times whenever we used it because there was not enough water pressure to get the job done. The location was impeccable though, and we would stay there again without hesitation, as it is probably the best price in the area for the quality of hotel that it is. It was very quiet and there was a lot of privacy in our room which was the standard queen.
