Best Inn in or around Hancock, NY. The staff tries very hard, the rooms are clean amd quiet. My only criticism is that its time for new mattresses. They are old. Its expensive during camp visiting days, if they would uograde the beds, it would be worth it.

We stopped twice, breakfast and lunch. The staff was very friendly, fun and accommodating . We were Harley Davidson bikers and will plan a group ride and stay from Canandaigua , NY. A small town in a beautiful region and Route 97 is a great road along the Delaware River!!

The bathroom was large and nicely done. Nice soaps & shampoo & even makeup remover. The window liner fell when we tried to open it. The rate included... More

Great treasure found in the Catskills. Incredibly friendly staff who was very patient with all my travel changes due to weather. They were very accomodating. The staff in all areas were wonderful and nice to interact with.

We were driving home from Buffalo, NY to NYC the day after Thanksgiving and needed a place to stop. We tried the restaurant first - the food was good, the service friendly, the atmosphere cozy. We decided to spend the night, and our room was lovely, large and quiet. I understand that during certain seasons (hunting and summer camp) it's... More

My husband and I enjoy a good prime rib and love French Onion soup. Rarely do we find a place where BOTH are great. The Hancock House Dining Room is a place where the Friday nite Prime Rib is AWESOME. My husband sent his "compliment" to the Chef Chase. We asked for end cuts, if possible, and ordered them Medium...
