First, I will start with the reasons to love the Castle at Skylands Manor. The grounds and building itself are truly spectacular. Additionally, the rooms are charming and the setting romantic. I'm also not sure why everyone complained about breakfast, it is what you'd get at almost any hotel that serves an expanded continental. It's a plus, that staff were... More

Yes, the suites are lovely but window air conditioners with vents cut into windows still up in October with very little heat makes for a cold room. Walls are thin with a connecting door into our bedroom meant we could hear the TV from the next room quite easily. Would love to have some money reinvested in this place to... More

Every room in the castle is a delight for the eyes! Absolutely beautiful! The caretaker, Dave was more than cordial; he went above & beyond to accommodate us. He gave meaning to the word "hospitality". We stayed in the Knight's Room, which is on the first floor and has a private bath. The bed was not only beautiful, but very... More

I always take reviews with a grain of salt because so many people like to complain. I decided to book Castle at Skylands Manor because it looked beautiful, so I ignored some of the bad reviews. The building itself is beautiful and has great bones. The grounds are also very lovely. We were greeted by a very friendly lady to... More

Dangerous: You have to park at least three NY blocks away and walk in the dark to get to the hotel. No Valet, no lights at 7:00 p.m. Total darkness, bear country. No one to carry your bags upstairs. Cold faucet didn't work in bathroom. Windows wouldn't close, had at least twenty very large flies in bathroom. Kept door closed... More

I was looking for a nice place to spend my fiancées birthday weekend and unfortunately I picked this place thinking that it would be a nice place to spend a romantic weekend. We arrived around 9pm on a Friday night from NYC and were really looking forward to this weekend. Everything looked lovely from the outside (and the grounds are... More

Be be thrown away by my headliner because there's only one personnel each shift in the castle of limited capacity! Since our car broke down, we arrived late, we haven't had dinner and the in-keeper/butler, David went way out of his way to make sure we get food from delivery at 10PM! He had us sit down at the breakfast... More

The other great reviews here have said it all. I'd just like to add that when we stayed on a Saturday night at the beginning of August, we felt like we owned the place - our own personal mansion and gardens. David our host was super gracious and accommodating and really went out of his way to help make us... More

I found it very interesting reading other's reviews of Skylands Manor and it seems to me, when it comes to special hotel, folks just seem to either "get it" or they don't :0) This is an exceptionally unique property, where every turn reveals yet another jaw-dropping space, (Bring your camera!!) The castle is absolutely exquisite inside and out! I would... More

This historic landmark is in a most beautiful setting. Surrounded by the NJ Botanical Gardens it is very tranquil and lends itself to walks around the quiet grounds. It is no surprise that couples flocked in and out all day to check it out as a wedding location. We were booked to stay two nights and upgraded our room to... More
