We were a bit overwhelmed by the granddeur of the building when we first arrived, but all the staff made such a big fuss of us we enjoyed our three night stay very much. the menu seemed a bit to descriptive, but it resulted in us finding out what DRAGON`S BREATH is. It is very tasty creamy cheese made in... More

We spent three nights at the Dalvay at the end of June and had an absolutely wonderful time. The staff was very accommodating. The building itself is beautiful- with large fireplaces and a grand staircase. One of the highlights of our staff was enjoying a few meals at the restaurant, which offers guests delicious food, great service and lovely views... More

We were married 19 years ago today. And every year since our first anniversary, we’ve been celebrating this event at Dalvay by the Sea. Tonight was no exception in that it was exceptional. Such a beautiful setting, old-world ambiance, singular elegance, exquisite food, spectacular service, what more could you ask for? Thanks to our hostess, Rebecca, and especially to Marty,... More

Hard to believe this was somebody's mansion because it makes a great hotel. The room was nice, the location amazing and the staff very friendly. My only complaint was that the computer system was a complete nightmare and held up just about every transaction from check in to check out.

As soon as you open the door, the smell of the gigantic fireplace makes your heart smile and your brain slow down. This beautiful building beside a lake and across from the ocean feels as if it has been there since before time, and will be there for a very long time to come. The 19th-century architecture is breathtaking -... More

I always dreamt of staying at the Dalvay Hotel. For years and years. This month it finally happened. I stayed at the hotel for a week. My room had a king bed and a briljant ocean and lake view. I could even see the sunrise! There is only one thing I can say about the room: I loved it! You... More

A friend and I couldn't afford to stay at Dalvay by the Sea, but we did have lunch there. The menu is rather pricey, but we wanted to make a day of it, so we splurged. The verdict was that our food was just ok. The staff there were extremely attentive and helpful, but we probably won't spend the money... More

As we approched this magnificant hotel, we were almost immediatly transported back in time. The exterior alone is stunning. The main hall is beautifull and lavishly decorated, with dark wood panelling, a grand fireplace and a gorgeous wooden main staircase. We adored our room, number 18, especially the window nook with its view on the ocean. The beautifull redsand beaches... More

Step into a Victorian Inn at the turn of the 19"th century. Dalvay by the Sea is a charming hotel with beautiful grounds with authentic character. The restaurant is superb. Boat and bike rentals are available. The sand duned beach is right across the road. Don't forget to gaze at the stars in the evening unobstructed by any light pollution.

200-year-old hotel, specializing in interior is very delicate. I live just a room facing the sea, coupled with high-end furniture design house, a touch of luxury to me. The hotel restaurant's food and service are great.
