Fair 4,0
Outdated - needs attention
Hotel is outdated, not maintained, needs paint and more attention to condition of grounds. We obeyed COVID situations yet noticed that staff were rude regarding the rules.
Susan, us1 night family trip
Very good 8,0
ice resort with family feeling
This was our first trip away without kids in years. It was nice to spend time with my spouse. We used the jetted tub and enjoyed the robes la tourelle provided. With covid it was interesting as lots of things weren’t available or offered. The resort put together a nice binder and they offer free wine tasting everyday, but with covid they weren’t allowing it (when I asked) but the owner offered to do it anyways for us because I asked I told him it was not necessary, but the gesture was much appreciated. The grounds weren’t kept up as much as I expected especially when everything has been shut down for so long. The place a was nice and I would go back.

vintage & unique
Nice place, dated, but vintage, with a pleasant staff. if you like to stay at something other than a normal chain-type motel this would be a nice choice.

Great stay! Horrible driveway.
We love staying here. Our one major complaint is the condition of the driveway. Use caution or twist an ankle or worse yet take a tumble. It's been this way for quite a while.

Excellent in every aspect!

Exceptional 10,0
Lovely grounds and charming team!
What a lovely countryside retreat! Charming and attentive team, relaxing grounds, close enough to the city and far enough to actually get away. Photos of lots of famous guests around the lobby, from comedians to Dalila Lama, to enjoy stories about during wine hour. John Thomas Steakhouse on property is a treat. Trail to Buttermilk Falls from on property! Just great.
