I have stayed at this hotel three times over the past year due to location. On previous visits, my rooms were satisfactory although a little tired and in need of upgrades. On my last visit, we were relegated to a motel-style room that was street side. Upon walking into the room, we immediately said this was unacceptable. The room was... More

This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in! The website is very misleading, our room was dirty, smelled musty, and the front desk attendant was extremely rude. On the bright side the pool is very nice.

Comfortable, tastefully decorated hotel rooms that assist for getting a restful night's sleep. The staff members at all levels were very helpful, hospitable, and professional. Excellent transportation staff who went above and beyond expectations, especially during a very busy wedding season! I cannot thank them enough! The hotel restaurant served reasonably priced, beautifully presented, delicious meals served by friendly wait... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was large any clean. Their were beautiful winding staircases and lots of sitting areas to take a break outside of the room. They served fresh Danishes and breads with coffee in the lobby for breakfast. We will definitely be staying there again

Very nicely decorated rooms that have a colonial feel. Comfortable beds with comforters and nice homey touches throughout the room. The pool is set beautifully in the woods, clean, and relaxing. However they over did it with the scent sticks in the reception area.

Absolutely delicious! There were many great choices. I had hanger steak for the first time. It was delicious. My husband had chocolate cake that was perfection! Just went for dinner. We live locally. The service was great, the food was perfection. Lovely venue, what more can we say.

Returning to Connecticut for a boarding school reunion, it seemed logical to stay at one of those places that was there when I was in school. The property is well kept, the rooms are a good size, and the lobby coffee and treats are welcoming. There is a decent sized exercise room, and the staff is helpful. The only concern... More

A pleasure to find a nice hotel in a small town. The room size was adequate, the beds very comfortable, and the food and beverage available would compare favorably with a good city hotel. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I certainly would stay there again.
