Martin Hill Inn

Martin Hill Inn is proud to give guests a relaxing retreat that is a quick ten-minute walk from downtown Market Square. The 19th-century buildings house unique guest rooms with luxurious king or queen beds. They also have en-suite baths, original artwork, antiques, reading chairs, flat-screen TVs, complimentary wireless Internet, and end table refrigerators. There are three rooms in the Main House and four in the Guest House.

During the day, you can explore Portsmouth or wander through the inn’s perennial gardens where there are dozens of types of flowers. In the morning, guests enjoy a two-course full breakfast in the dining room. You can savor tasty delights like homemade scones and muffins and options like quiches, omelets, waffles, French toast, and peach-raspberry crumble. All food is locally sourced and grown when possible, and the kitchen staff can accommodate many dietary restrictions.

In the afternoon, you can sip tea or coffee as you indulge in homemade cookies. Martin Hill Inn also offers complimentary snacks, chocolates, bottled water, and sherry.
