The lobby and banquet room was nice but as soon as we stepped into our room we were transported back in time...not in a good way. The rooms are really outdated. If you like sleeping on a rock, you will love the bed. The heat in our room was on some kind of sensor that adjust the room to a... More

I stayed there for few days. Kind of an old fashion English manor but comfortable and convenient. Service quite nice and bar/restaurant good places to relax after work. Breakfast service can be a little long if you come after 7am but it is minor comment.

Great staff, but the rooms are ... Just tired. Staff is friendly and helpful. Able to arrange group transport, if needed. Pet-friendly hotel. They just need to do a little updating on the room decor. Would make a huge difference.

Front desk help were very pleasant and helpful. Printed maps for our tournament location. Room was clean, all needs in room. Ate in pub, was ok. Pork nachos were not a good combo, asked for something else. Wait staff was slow to check on us. Would have ordered more if wait staff came back. Breakfast in morning was fresh and... More

I have been to this location several times for weddings and events and have never been disappointed! Their staff is extremely attentive and their food is some of the best around. This time when visiting, the hotel was booked completely and there was a wait list for rooms... No fear - the hotel staff stayed in contact with me days... More

If you suddenly find yourself transported back into the 70's, this is the place to stay! The entire hotel is dated and tired. The room wasn't too bad, but the beds felt like they were from an era of days gone by. We stayed on a weekend and there were multiple wedding receptions and other functions in their ballroom, which... More

My daughter had her wedding here on the 8th. The wedding coordinator Karen Eunanks was superb . The chef amazing. Every detail from setting up to the very end was perfect. The food was delicious the presentation outstanding. The waitstaff was exceptional. Hotel staff friendly and there to help you with anything you need.

I spent two nights at this hotel, having traveled to Malvern for a wedding ceremony and reception that were both held there. I think this is an excellent location for a wedding. The common areas and event rooms were very nicely appointed. The food was good. Overall, the staff was a pleasure. Very efficient and friendly (with the exception of... More

we stayed at this fine hotel two senate times over the past three years and attended wedding receptions on premises. Extraordinary experiences both time. Verizon cozy rooms, food and staff were exceptional. Bar on premises was excellent post wedding.

The owner of the company we were visiting took us to breakfast here and it was a one of a kind experience. The entire place exuded class and we were treated so well. The food was fabulous with a wide variety of choices on their menu. Perhaps on my next trip to Pennsylvania i will have an opportunity to have... More
