I found the fridge this time! I had a different building. Much closer to hot tub. Which was good when you have to go outside to return to your room. The bathroom is very nice and updated. Love the shower. Had champagne with the room but it had a beer taste. Had an issue with the TV, they quickly responded and assisted, GREAT SERVICE. Check in was quick and easy.

We chose this location for it's romantic feel. The grounds are beautiful. The English gardens, romantic. There is even a friendly swan who loves to visit up close. I wish we could have had the opportunity to try the spa. It sounds wonderful. The hotel is in a nice area, but far from good restaurants. There just aren't any. Luckily, the on site restaurant is the best around.

If you're looking for a place to step out of your busy life and into Heaven. COME HERE! The staff is incredible, Mechelle Smith was AMAZING! From the initial encounter to a follow-up after my spa treatment she remained in an unswerving authenticity of ensuring my experience was far beyond I could hope for or imagine. The facility is beautiful as well. I will forever be spoiled, have no desire to go anywhere else and will continue to spread the word of this incredible find.....Heaven on earth!

The staff are friendly and the service is excellent. The breakfast buffet was amazing with made to order omlets and applewood smoked bacon. The beds were comfortable but the decor seems a little worn even for the colonial period style. Good experience overall.

The Southern Hospitality of this hotel takes on a new meaning. I was truly impressed how genuine and lovely the staff of the hotel were. I was truly touched with the way they helped. The hotel is lovely, the food is delicious and super super pet friendly! I loved the style of the hotel - Colonial style and you felt like you entered the time of the US founders.

Decent place to stay. The grounds and main lobby are pretty but the rooms were not anything special. The inn was beautifully decorated for the holidays. They are very pet friendly and had a great dog park.

I was booked for a "Jr suite" which I discovered means there is a sleeper sofa in the room. NOT a suite in my book. The room was clean and staff was friendly with the exception of room service. I called to ask what exactly was included in the continental breakfast because there was a very general description on a card in my room. The girl on the phone told me "it's on the card." After getting a still vague answer, I asked to place an order for the next morning and she refused stating, "just fill... Read more

We went to the New Years Eve Gala which included an over night room. Our total bill we thought was $379 but was surprised when they added $50.00 service charge. The tax was $49.00 which made our total bill $478.00. Yes, expensive night BUT to our liking this included our nice size room with king size bed, wonderful buffet dinner with all the delicious chief food you can imagine, beautiful decorated ball room with live band playing til 1:30, free photos of yourself by professional photographers...

Great place to spend New Years Eve. They have a wonderful room that is decorated to the tee with a theme. This year it was the Great Gasby. Beautifully done. The scheduling staff did not do a great job on keeping our group of 10 together. We have done this for 4 years and every year for $500.00 for the night we get there and have to straighten out the table setting and breakfast schedules. They did not put all five couple in the main hotel when I know they could have after taking to people... Read more
