The Wonderful Harrison
The Harrison is a beautiful B&B located one block from the beach. The staff was friendly and was attentive to our various needs. The afternoon tea was a real highlight; so delicious.

The facility was quaint and charming. The breakfast was healthy and delicious. However, I barely saw staff members and had to remind them to put out the box of tea during teatime. They also did not put out plates during tea service.

We liked the property with a couple of issues. First - we were asked to move rooms after one night and the new room had a tub/shower combination. We thought it was dangerous - there was no grab bar to get in or out and it was very slippery. Second - it was quite expensive and we expected very nice rooms. There were small and not very updated, so a bit disappointed with the value for the price.

Breakfast and teatime was great. Location was great - close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The matress was too soft. Water pressure in shower was low - my room was on the 3rd floor.

Really cute BB with great staff, amenities for the beach, and location is only one block from the beach. Made for a perfect cape May weekend

Room was beautiful and appeared recently updated. Given the size of the room, it would have been nice if the bathroom was a little larger. The shower was tight and I'm not a large person. Breakfast was delicious.

8/10 Very Good

Overall, our experience at this property was a bit underwhelming. Property location is centrally located and in a quiet part of town. Blocks from Washington Street mall and the beach. Room (the Meade Room) was clean and updated but was missing "objects of convenience". Little things like shelving in the shower for shampoo, soaps, etc. , along with a place for toiletries in bathroom, were left out. (Having to leave items on the bathroom floor, due to lack of shelves, should not be an option when paying this rate for rooms). Also, the "two level" bathroom resembled an add-on. Shower stall on same level as bedroom but step down in bathroom to toilet and sink. (Not convenient for anyone with limitations). Property is being run by younger individuals from other countries, which was a challenge to determine if anyone was actually in-charge. Temperature in room was very cold, as mentioned by others. Ironic point was that guests were mentioning cold room temperatures but staff has fireplace on. (Point of reference - August in NJ). Opportunity to use property provided beach chairs and bicycles was very nice. All in very good condition. Breakfast was very good, with you providing your menu selection the night before. Third floor pantry, place for bottle water, soda, coffee, was a nice convenience. As mentioned, a bit disappointing for the price, as our reference points have been much better for this price range.
